I play lottery sometimes when I'm happy but so far i have been falling in the lower categories. I have always wondered how the lottery machine pick its numbers but never got any answer to that. I think the machines are just freaks, i mean how there is always few people who win high amounts but there are more people who fall in the low paying categories? Do anyone here have a clue how this freaking machines work?

I had never brought any lottery. But last year ,In China ,there is one case happened related the Lottery machine. One guy who sells lottery , he found the rule of hit the big jackpot, so he won billions RMB through control the lottery machine. At last , he was sentenced to put into jail.. sorry to hear that... I have no idea why he found that,but he is really very smart here. lol best wishes

So are you saying there might be something fishy with the control of the machines? Does this mean that the balls and the machines themselves could somehow be controlled as the draw is being made?

I play the lottery every week. I have played it here for ten years with the same numbers from day one. I have one on four numbers a few times and if i pass the numbers down the generations of my familt, someone is bound to win one day. We have a live lottery draw called the Lotto. The balls are all loaded (1-49) into a big machine, mixed up well and its like bingo, it is just whatever comes out. I sometimes wonder if its fixed as you used to hear at the start (ten years ago) of all the people winning and their stories, but funny now though you never hear about these people. My husband got five numbers once in work. They did a syndicate and it was spilt. He got around £5,000, so you can win good. A Guy who lives around 100 metres from my home, won £7 million, he give a lot of the money away. The draws in the UK and Ireland are usually done live on television, so it looks legit enough. Keep doing the lottery. If your not in you cannot win.

We have exactly the same system here but what is freaking me out is...how come the jackpot is won by a single or two people all the time, why can't all the people or at-least 100 people win the jackpot. I mean is like the machine knows that there is only one person who played certain unique numbers and it pick his/her numbers only and she/he is the only one who wins the jackpot. I do play the lotto but i pick different numbers every time i play, i pick the one's which currently hot, meaning the one's which the machine picks more often but i still find myself not winning, even if i do win i just fall in the last category which is 3 numbers.

I play the lottery form time to time too... and i sometimes watch on tv how the numbers are being drawn... here in my country... the machine does not exactly choose the number... they use balls with a number for each... and from there... the first 6 balls to go up will be the numbers... it is not really that complicated when i see it on tv...
