          grammy 3

          would u say a pick 3 or 4 is a lottery(because it sells a lot o f tickets/

          would you say the machine that gets the numbers is a lottery machine?

          do you think lottery  machine> means(programed) or random generated?

          LOTTO was invented by the chinese as a form of bingo at the beginning,which is a random/set of numbers with no two card s  the same.I believe a set of 75 cards.,of which numbers are random,and often repeated,with the bingo machine balls.today keno/lotto/bingo all run on machines.(but can these machines be programed)  to dif outcomes???food for thought

          the quest is can the  machine be a RNGmachine  or a programed machine as any

          programer can do. so be it that the new lottery machines comming out if run by digetal  balls  (like some keno) can be programed to take input of tickets/ verify/tickets  and  CHANGE  the so called balls cooming out. the screen is or can be rigged in my opinion

          at some casinos the language used by staff is lottery videos again lottery  /money/input/program changed.  I have been wondering if with all the tech can the visual balls realty be somehow programed as to outcome.

          mm game  has millions of tickets/(LOTTERY) millions people lose(can all the people be wrong that many? no I believe that somehow its programed with input on the great m board (PROGRAMED) you can fool some of the people some of the time/ but you cant fool all the people every time.    any programers ever simulate/ or try to do that with the bouncing balls??

            From what I have read about the SmartPlay Halogen machines used to draw the powerball, the delay between draws is adjustable (read "programmable")...

            for more on the SmartPlay Halogen... http://www.smartplay.com/kenograv.html

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

                 Yes I believe the machines are programmed. With all the states in Powerball you would think it would be hit everytime. People playing it has to be over the odds of winnig,

                  Here's a problem in the lotto world: improper defining of terms. I personally ran into this problem as I bought a SP system that was advertised as for the *Lotto* and upon recieving the product it was for a pick3-4 system. I had asssumed *Lotto* ment pick-5-6. I think *lotto* and *lottery* are used interchangeably. For clarity's sake we should say pick-6 or pick-3 etc.

                  ...My official lotto *pet peeve*. ;)

                    yes todd thats exactly what I am saying

                    they are 2 dif words  meaning differnt as to and attached to PROGRAMED.

                    I believe that the machines  producing the balls are programed in some way.

                    even a small dot on the ball can change it.

                    like a bullet that goes thru a short or long chamber can make a diff as to how far it goes and can be straigt or crooked.

                    that why you hear at the casinos  LOTTERY MACHINES(SLOT MACHINE) refered to as a lottery machine by staff. PROGRAMED>    a random set of numbers

                    RNG  without a win in millions of tickets sold/ is mind blowing to think its programed    million s sold    all input into a giant  mother board/ they know THE computor knows/ before we do  what the result will be. thos its a illusion to think its random/ a programer SMART  CAN DO IT..  OF course this is my opinion

                    if we open our ears as to language used around machines we might get more info.

                    anyone else  have any more Ideas on this.?? HYPERSONIG thanks fr input will check the sight

                      luckycat, I totally agree.  That is why I never play slot machines.  They program the exact payout ratio they wish to achieve - which is not what I'd call random.

                      If slot machines were totally random, then their odds (payout ratio) would be based on the number of symbols on the wheel, and the number of wheels (much like a Pick 3- or Pick 4-style game).  They would never be able to increase or decrease the payout ratio.

                      Yet they are the casino's biggest moneymaker.

                      It is similar to scratch-off games: they are some of the biggest moneymakers for the state lottery, but they carry some of the worst odds.

                       

                      Check the State Lottery Report Card
                      What grade did your lottery earn?

                        tODD:

                        I have confirmation that some casinos have program(lottery) machines.where you cant win no matter how much money or time spent, because that machine is programed, as97% are.

                        they are programed in some places. not all

                        MY question to you is do you think the ball machines can they be programed> ?seems possible to  me.

                        also if states get the diget machines for big games I believe that to be programed also<  do you???? 

                        thanks for your input.

                          No, I don't believe ball machines are programmed, especially those that use the gravity method, such as Mega Millions.  Those that use the air method could be manipulated by weighing down certain balls, but I think there are enough safeguards that that will not occur.  (Yes, I know the story about how it happened once in the past by insiders.)

                          I am totally not on board with those who have a conspiracy theory about the state lotteries.

                              They vary - some are gravity, some are air.  You'd have to check with the state lottery to see which one they use.
