      Lottomike,

      I have asked that question several times and got scattered answers. This is the states I have been told; MO, ca, ks, de, org, minn, colo, idaho, so.dak, pa, la, neb, ind, ia.

      Don't know if this is all or not, only the ones I have been told.

        The Kentucky Lottery uses a computer to select the draw numbers for one of its games: Tic Tac Cash. The game really doesn't interest me, so I don't play it anyway. My guess is that they're warming up to use computerized drawings on more or all of their games.

        I'm not sure where I stand on whether or not to play computerized games. I think I'd have to watch and play for a while to see if there were any material difference in my success or failure. Off hand, I suspect that the computer draws are not entirely random, and that might give players an edge if they can spot a pattern or aberation in the draws.

        Time will tell about this matter. I don't think the loteries are even sure what the impact on participation might be. Some people will bet on anything under any circumstances. Most of the betting public is probably not as astute or discerning as the membership of Lottery Post.  

        Good luck,

        aye'

              ok. how does that relate to the topic?

              I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

                    No, Illinois still uses the traditional ball machines because I saw a live drawing on TV last night.

                      The bolded states are the ones i have got most of my hits from......

                      Computerized do seem to be NOT random......in our favor

                      I believe life is about finding someone you cant live without

                      And showing them how much you care every day of every month of every year

                        Yes, in general, I do find computer draws better, I wish that all were computerized (More $$$ to win).

                            TN computerized..seems to work just fine.

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

                            You never know when you will get another hit.

                              Lottomike,

                              Wisconsin went to RNGs on 11/3

                              There was no word about them doing it in advance. Just suddenly a press release on the day. And it never has been mentioned in the news locally that I'm aware of....
