Hoosier Lotto in a dry spell

Todd's avatar - Cylon 200.jpg

I, for one, am really glad to see this issue raised again in Indiana.  There has already been one attempt to legislate computerized drawings out of existence there, maybe (hopefully!) this will spark another attempt.  I hope it also gets notice in Tennessee, where the oversight meeting is just a couple of weeks away.


the lotto in my state of indiana is doing something dirty with this constant not hitting on the jackpot but ima just play my tickets and pray for the best


Im glad someone finally put a percentage on the likelihood of this happening at well below one percent.  If Tennessee had a computer glitch that didnt allow doubles maybe Indiana has a glitch that doesnt allow the same numbers to be drawn if they were printed on a ticket, hence no doubles either haha.   It surpassed the magical 50 million mark, now the year mark might be the magical date this falls.  And no money is won when you hit 2 numbers, just a free play that is in itself worth about 20 cents, typical lottery spin.

I  completly   agree  with  you   on  this  issue  computerized  drawings  are  not  good   for  the  players .The  benifit  is  too  the  Lotterys   and  their  corporate  partners ....its   a  money   maker  very  little  payouts  and  all  profit :

laws  would  push  those   Corporate  Enterprises into  a  better  system  a  ball   draw  in   the   eye  of  the   camera  and the  citizens  of  this   state:

But  like  I  said  before  there  are   many   insidences  accross  the   USA  where  no  one   has  won  for  over  a  year ....people  dont   want  to  make   waves ....(just   ask  KY Fooled ,he  hits   all  the   web  sites)   case  and  point  the  pick  10  NY  cash   amount   for   all  10 =500,000.00

with  up  to   10  winners   per  draw ....number   of  winners  for   all  ten  in  the   last  5yr  =( 2)

and  you   never   know  if  that  winner   was  not  related  to  the  lottery  personal ,since  it   is  a  draw  that  is  never   teleivised;


IT'S completely driving me Insane!!!!!


your not the only one

why  dont  you   write  to  the   Governor  or  the   inspector  general   of  your  state ;

tell  them  you   dont   want  computerized   drawings  in  your   state ...its  simple  and  you   are  paying  there   wages just   like  every-other   tax  payers;

FYI-- Everyone has been notified years ago. The day that the bill to eliminate RNG was supposed to be brought up in the Legislature was the day they all walked out---isnt that a coincidence. You plead in vain if u live in Indiana. Rule of law is non existent here. EVERYONE HAS BEEN NOTIFIED! Since the Lottery is now getting scrutiny expect it to be won now. How do I know that? Cause when someone brought up the fact that there had not been quads in so long then the quads came out. There is NOTHING random about it. Just look at the daily game payouts and compare them too ANY State. It is hideously insane. But they are untouchable. Indiana makes Tennessee look like Cinderella.


we're in the same boat jeff.i don't spend and won't spend another dime until tennessee brings back balls.period.


i'm predicting that the lotto jackpot will be hit this saturday (hopefully by me) it will be the one year anniversary since it was won (actually 364 days but who cares)

my  information  was  incorrect  about   the  NY  pick  10  ..for  this  year  there  has  been   a  few  more   winners ,they   dont  tell  you  on  the  news  anything  so  here is  the  facts  for  getting  all  10   or  the  largest   payouts  ever!!!

Yes that is a long time.  But you do have to look at the odds.  I mean if the jackpot is really this high and they are only selling about $1.5 million tickets a drawing, that is a lot of uncovered combinations.  Now for how long this has been growing the odds are probably pretty small that it would have lasted this long.  But odds are odds.  I really don't see how it could be a fraction of a percent though.  I mean when the jackpot is small it seems like they don't sell many tickets at all. 

But by the way the jackpot only grows by $500,000 a drawing?  When they are selling $3,000,000 tickets a week the jackpot should be increase by at least $2,000,000 a week not only $1,000,000.  But I guess it does make up for the beginning jackpots when I doubt they sell enough tickets to warrant the $500,000 increase.

Ohio's Classic Lotto, a 6/49 game has a starting jackpot of $1M and is increased by $100K each drawing that it's not won.  Unlike Hoosier Lotto which offer a free play for matching 2, its lowest prize is $2 for a match3.

Since the Hoosier Lotto payouts(10/17/07=$195K)is higher than Ohio Classic Lotto payouts(10/17/07=$22K), I assume it's attracting more players, however the Ohio game jackpot has been won three times since it started less than a year ago.  It's truly is a mystery why the Hoosier Lotto game has gone so long without a jackpot winner. 

P.S. Ohio Classic Lotto picks its numbers the old fashion way, it uses a ball machine.

A mystery? Hardly. One needs only to look at the 0 straight winners on pic 4 every day and the ridiculously low pic 3 payouts. The mystery becomes obvious.
