Todd thanks for helping get the balls bouncing again.
Computers have their uses but computer random number generated lottery numbers are not my idea of fun for lottery games.
Ball machines are the way to go. Many people I know will stop playing lottery games if they were to switch to RNG's. We want to see/witness the balls being drawn on television.

I'd love to sign your petition but being from Canada I'm not sure if I should since it applies to US lotteries. Just hope that someone here will start one soon also as this compgen problem is not unique to south of the 49th. I wholeheartedly agree with your effort and if you think I should sign too just say so and I'm there,
if at first you don't succeed ... destroy all evidence you ever tried

Done! how much more money do they want for nothing? We're paying real dollars, we expect a real drawing... unless they would consider monopoly money at the retailer...
Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.

I'm not sure I understand. Most serious lottery players spend a lot of time, effort, and money trying to find patterns in lottery drawings. Many people advertise methods that will predict winning lottery numbers. I would think lottery players would support methods of drawing lottery numbers that would make it easier to predict those numbers. Why would you support a method of drawing numbers that INCREASED the randomness, then turn right around and search for a method of picking numbers that DECREASED the randomness?

Fwup, it is not the randomness in question, it is the integrity of the game. They pick the machines (IL uses 15) at random, they pick the ballsets at random, they weigh the ping pong balls, they test the machines many times and all this is started 2 hours before the drawing even happens. How can you possibly test the integrity of a computer with millions of lines of code built into it, 2 draws a day?
And for a lottery official (and 'senior citizen witness') to push HIS button on HIS computer to tell me if I won or not and then have the gall to tell me what happened a half hour later pisses me off.
To all....sign this petition and write your state's lottery director explaining your displeasure with this trend or we won't have a game to play anymore and ergo we wouldn't even be talking to each other on this forum because this forum won't exist....it will be your state's computer running the "forums" with RNG as the moderator.
