Canadian Lotteries

Today we start with lotteries

which might be a more interesting topic

than the Ukrainian Conflict

because this lottery subject would deal with money—

your money.

At least there may be tips in choosing the winning

numbers along the way.

I deal, and bet, on the Canadian lotteries.

Some days there are criticisms I have encountered

about how the WCLC is run,

Worse, there are hints that the Canadian lotteries

are rigged.

Meaning to say that there exists a human choice 

on the winning numbers.

Which makes me ponder as to how can this be done.

So I communicated with the WCLC in my effort to

clear things up with the (mostly foreign) doubters

about the integrity of the Canadian Lottery Draws.

So I now publish here the first meaningful and highly

appreciated reply from WCLC—-

 

“Draws for national games such as LOTTO 6/49, LOTTO MAX and DAILY GRAND are conducted by the Interprovincial Lottery Corporation (ILC) in Toronto, using random number generator software on stand-alone computerized draw machines.

The Interprovincial Lottery Corporation (ILC) conducts draws for LOTTO MAX and LOTTO 6/49 in Toronto and effective May 2019, ILC began conducting these draws using Random Number Generator (RNG) software. Draws for DAILY GRAND, LOTTO MAX MAXMILLIONS prizes, and LOTTO 6/49 Guaranteed Prize Draws are also conducted using RNG.

Third-party experts have tested and certified the RNG software for randomness. When the software starts, an integrity check is performed on the system to ensure that no changes have been made that could affect the random outcome of the draw. A number of other checks and balances are performed to ensure draw security and are witnessed by third-party experts – including two draw auditors located in two separate geographical locations.

We hope that you can appreciate the integrity of the draws is of the utmost importance and it is not possible to manipulate the draws.

For more information about draws and draw security please visit https://www.wclc.com/faq-5.htm#draws_and_jackpots and https://www.wclc.com/for-players/game-draw-security.htm”

 

This reply did not actually satisfy my questions.

So I now will respond with direct questions

for which I will also publish here the replies.

 

My first question would be :

Why are there no public viewings of the draws?

My second question would be :

What makes your software

Random Number Generator Proprietary

different from the common Random Number Generator

which can be used in any available computer today?

 

From these questions can be noted

that I simply do not question the integrity of the people

involved in these lotteries.

I merely question the system, and/or procedures.
