I have purchased several different types of georgia lottery instant games in order 001,002,003,004,ect the odds say 1:3:4 and i would buy the next 7 tickets and no winner.Not even a free ticket. This accures very often. I don't think it's fair in these times to rip off Georgians in this way. Someone please look into Georgia lottery they are getting away with murder and no changellane. Cash 3 and 4 has repeat numbers every week or three times a month and then there are some numbers that oddly enough has not come out in 10 years. What are the odds of that being real odds or unluckey. We are talking about 4 numbers.I played to see how long the could keep this going well here we are some 5 years later with this number still not falling out.

You must be the luckest person in the world

AUTHOR: seanp - (USA)

I just read your comments about the lottery. You must be the luckiest person in the world to have won monies in every state you have played. I think you're a joke!

Sal this isn't for you it's for the person who wrote a comment like I did. I believe you Sal. I'm having an issue with the lottery myself and I'm trying to find out who to contact to file my complaint. I have proof that the lottery is being manipulated.

FOOLS that try to Think

AUTHOR: SwampThing - ()

The "complainants" that believe that THE GEORGIA LOTTERY is a rip-off MUST be a product of the PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM, to believe such insanity. There is no more a concerted or covert conspiracy to deceive or defraud the public with a false lottery than there is to "raise the dead." ----to believe otherwise is sheer IGNORANCE. Please ask yourself how many thousands of people lose hundreds of millions of dollars at Casinos all over the world and yet thousands of people make a living playing those same games!!

I have played lotteries in EVERY state of the U.S. that I have lived in; and have won over $1,000 in every state. I frequently win more than I spend on a regular basis.... I'm not just lucky, I follow THE GAMES and THE PATTERNS, like horse racing, or any other "GAMBLING" game....I suggest YOU do the same, FOOLS! Use your head for something besides a "hat-rack."  For those idiots that really feel The Lottery is "rigged"--- please provide me a detailed analysis on exactly HOW that would be accomplished and kept quiet----- I'll be THE FIRST to instigate an investigation and prosecution of all involved, and upon conviction of those involved; I'll be the first to kiss your intelligent A**! Thank you--- now go study what you don't know.....!!

I Agree

AUTHOR: Desilu1977 - ()

I too have seen this. I have played lotto for years and have yet to win a fair amount of money, The odds on said tickets are false because I have purchaced a whole roll and only won less than odds state. also it seems everyone who wins the fantasy 5 jackpots is always in or near Atlanta, which brings me to think that the lottery main office in atlanta has these draws rigged to only hit near them.

I disagree

AUTHOR: Flynrider - (USA)

  If the original poster of this report is a product of GA public schools, I'd say that is a strong indication that they need all the money they can get.

The public school systems in georgia steal federal money and the money from the georgia lottery and don't help students who need extra help schools despise kids who need extra help

AUTHOR: Public schools sucks - (USA)

The public school systems in georgia steal federal money & money from georgia lottery.  The jerks who run the schools despise kids who need a little extra help with tutoring.  These assholes in georgia claim they don't have enough money.  Well with the $13 Billion they get from the georgia lottery,  how they hell can they claim they don't have enough money.

It just pisses me off how they despise kids who don't make straight A's.

Overall odds are just that, overall

AUTHOR: carhauler - (USA)

This is from the Georgia Lottery Commission:

"Thank you for contacting the Georgia Lottery Corporation (GLC).

The Georgia Lottery goes to great lengths to ensure the security and integrity
of every game. Game symbols and prize amounts are distributed randomly during
the printing process of instant tickets. All instant games are audited by an
independent CPA firm prior to the release of a game to confirm that the
appropriate number of prizes is included in the printing process of a game.

The overall odds printed on an instant ticket are the odds of winning any prize
in the entire game. For example, if the odds are 1:4 that means there is a
winning ticket in every four tickets printed in the entire game. Since winning
tickets are randomly distributed during the printing process, this does not mean
that every fourth ticket in a roll is a winning ticket. There are multiple top
prize winning tickets, as well as multiple prize levels, available in all
Georgia Lottery instant games. Tickets are randomly distributed to more than
8,000 retailers throughout the state.

We appreciate your interest in the GLC and our games"

There is your answer.

Your math is wrong

AUTHOR: Bobby D - (U.S.A.)

Well, Sal, here's an example:

If the they say the odds of winning something on a scratch ticket are 1 in 4, that doesn't mean that every group of four tickets will have a winner, it means that 25% of all the tickets of that type that they ever sell everywhere will be a winner.

You could have a group of 1000 tickets with only 85 winners, or a group of 1000 with 300 winners, but there won't be a winner on every fourth ticket.
That's why it's a game of chance.

As far as your frustration with your Cash 4 numbers not winning, I would be more suspicious if there were an even distribution historically of all possible numbers.

As much as I'd like to explain it further, I won't try to get into a discussion of random numbers or Probability theory, because I suspect it wouldn't help and I just remembered I have to go poke myself in the eye with a stick.
