Forum,

  My name is Teorulte, Teo for short, and I am new to this forum.  I usually post on GG- www.gamblersglen.com about roulette, baccarat and other casino games/systems.  I thought this site looked very interesting.  I hope I can post some beneficial information for everyone in the forum.  I look forward to posting on here.  I would like to start off by posting something that my friend Rob posted on GG:

TEO

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

"total payout=maximum possible payout
for x = 1-2-3-4-5 to 35-36-37-38-39 do (repeat for all combo's)
begin (loop)
lowest payout=payout for this combination
if lowest payout < total payout then
total payout=lowest payout
end (loop)
------

Above is a snippet of something computer programmer's call "pseudo-code". It is universal to all computers, all operating systems. The example used is for any pick 5/39 game.

This code, when incorporated into your State's computerized lotto draw
program insures that the number drawn will have the lowest possible payout of all combinations sold. In otherwords, it is impossible to win the jackpot if all possible combinations were not sold.

The reader may be surprised to learn that while this code obviously creates a dishonest (rigged) game, it is not illegal. State lottery corporations are free to use any system they choose for their lotteries. There is no legislation requiring them to provide an honest game. Their only requirement under law is a game result. How they arrive at that result is totally up to them!

Computerized lotto draw programs are, by their very nature, programmable and subject to manipulation. Write your elected public official and demand a guarantee, under law, of an honest ball-drop game."

    I believe that.

    If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!

    You never know when you will get another hit.

      Thank Goodness Florida uses "Lottery Draw Machines" and not "Computerized Draws"

        Our state uses lottery machines, tto, however, I really believe that they pick the combination with the lowest possible payout.  Even with machines, they get 3 pulls before the actual drawing..

        If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!

        You never know when you will get another hit.

              I really don't believe that the Draw Machines are fixed because the drawings are conducted live, yes they do preliminary or test draws before the actual draw but that's done to check for any possible changes,imperfections or whatever there strict guidelines require for the machine and balls.I don't see how they could select a combination with the lowest payout without tampering with the balls which is ILLEGAL

              and if the drawing is done live whatever combination is drawn they have to pay on it to any winners.I know for a fact that Florida has very "STRICT" guidelines and rules and there's never been an incident of Draw Machine or Lottery Ball tampering.Most States follow the same procedures but if you feel differently about your game then something is wrong with your State Lottery Commission.

                  they made a movie about my state's lottery commission... "Lucky Numbers" (John Travolta & Lisa Kudrow).

                  The movie was inspired by an actual drawing of the Pennsylvania lottery on 4/24/1980 when the number was 6-6-6, and could only have been a combination of 4's or 6's because they weighed all of the other balls down by injecting them with white latex paint... The co-conspirators bought up thousands of dollars of the remaining combinations, and walked off with 1.8 Million dollars. (the hard way, $500 per ticket x 3,600 tickets)... the combos available... 444, 446, 464, 466, 644, 646, 664, 666 ($28,000!).

                  read all the details here...

                  Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.

                        hypersonig,

                        That was in interesting story about the lottery fix.  Ohio, and I assume other states also, has in place a system which stops accepting certain sets of numbers after they have been bet over a certain percent of the total bets.  This has only been done during holidays or anniversaries when certain numbers are likely to be played more, but I would think if the same thing happens when there were no way to explain it, there would be an investigation.  Like the casinos, they expect a certain percent of profit and when it doesn't happen, they investigate.  That probably why they don't give any concern to the lottery programs that player use to beat the system because they improve their profits.
