I am surprised that they were able to see the numbers in advance,surely that would be the one thing they could guarantee would not happen.In the UK the sales are stopped an hour or so before the draw happens.

Investigators believe that Tipton used (and abused) his access to the association's RNG (random number generator) machine to find out what are the winning number combinations in advance, from which he and his associates played those numbers and shared the jackpot prizes.

oh shucks... LOL @ RNG

To be honest, they are rigging lotteries left and right since the dawn of time. The only new thing about this that it came to somebody's attention. What a surprise. LOL.

RNG- You can not see number in advance.

A random number generator, generates random numbers.

So you click it and there will be a number. There is no undo function or step backward function.

He probably manipulated the software.

A lot of articles in newspapers have wrong details

They never say: He probably did this or that, but instead they state things as facts.

Don't believe everything you read.

Never trust news!

Another interesting news after Serbian lottery scandal last year. Very annoying that random numbers couuld be declared in advance. Customers cannot trust these lottery companies with these conditions.

------------
On the other hand how we trust these companies as most of them over the world use quite similar systems and RNGs with quite similar security standards I think so who can guarantee that your country is fully clear and not affected by things like this.
