    Most Delawareans believe the state lottery is rigged. This article will only serve to support that theory. The director has been involved for years and it is apparent he doesn't care about the players (I say this from having the experience of claiming a prize). Take note that the Multi-Win Lotto starts at $50K and is presently at $122K. Considering it increases typically at $2K per drawing (3 times a week), it has been quite some time since the last winner. Any one remember why the Delaware Lotto was stopped last year? Because no one won it for over a year!

    Compare the prizes and the odds structure (numbers that can be chosen) and you'll see that Delaware's is far below par compared to the same games in Pennsylvania and Maryland (tho no one has won MD's that I'm aware of). There are some that believe that even Delaware's Powerball is rigged and will instead buy tickets in Pennsylvania.

    There was a state rep in Delaware that wanted to introduce legislation forcing the Delaware Lottery to go back to ball machines, but it went no where. Check the archives of the NewsJournal for that (it was sometime last fall I believe). Instead they started this fluff that they are legit, and it only hurting sales. Delaware needs to take another look at this, but they are obviously going the wrong direction. If it were up to me, the ball machines would be picking tonight's numbers and the Multi-Win Lotto would be replaced with another game (perhaps VA's Win for Life). But that's another story...

        Cause there making Big Money not having ball drawings.

        That's why Arizona does it. I wrought them telling them i might move back if they changed back to ball drawings. And they flat out told me hell no.

        If it weren't for Vtracs and STXS where would we be?

          my brother lives in arizona and the only thing he plays there is powerball.you did the right thing by not moving there.almost every single state out west is computerized!!  the whole west coast is computerized including california,oregon,washington.not to mention arizona,new mexico and colorado.

            Just wondering, how do you feel about Keno/Quick Draw? I see that more of an instant game than anything else.

                I recently moved from IN to Nc and I can honestly say that I hate computerized drawings. I used to love to play the daily 3 and daily 4. I was winning and then i hit a year long slump. I couldn't figure it out. Sadly, I found out why. I quit playing after that. They didn't even tell us that they switched to computerized drawings for a whole year. They ruined the Hoosier Lottery in my opinion. I guess I will stick to my first love, Powerball. I hope NC doesn't make a horrible mistake.

                P.S. I signed it.

                            The Lottery computers are picking numbers no one has picked.  They have a database of all the numbers and are making the jackpot go up and up so the state makes more money.  We need to expose this fraud.  I have also heard theories they can rig the mechanical drawings by putting air in the ping pong balls.  We need to make the system fair.
