I am sure with the ohio lottery being behind the operations of the " lottery terminal" There wont to be to many people walking out with money in pocket.. I have watched for years how they have run other games..{ keno. instant tickets, lotto] and so on.. seems funny how they have a system in place to monitor the in's and outs of the machines. I dont see much difference in buying an instant ticket, They already know how many winners they will have and how much they will sell.. Even ohio keno is not a live draw on the numbers,there is a big time delay from when you play a certain draw and the time when the draw comes out. I would "bet" its part of the same system that they are using in scioto.. I am really concerned about people who cant afford to gamble but still they will be there...no differnt than another drug addiction, but this is state ran, gambling is as hard as a crack addiction, its just does less damnage to your body.. good luck ohio. sigh...shame on you greedy state reps. you found another way to collect taxes when you should have lowered your own pay and cut spending like the rest of us have had to do...

I thought this was interesting, so I am posting:

The difference between a slot machine and a VLT may not be readily apparent simply by looking at the unit but must be examined in term of the manner in which they operate internally.

VLTs often look just like slot machines in appearance. In fact, manufacturers are very good at making VLTs that look very similar to slot machines from the patron's point of view. However, there is a clear difference between a slot machine in Pennsylvania and a VLT used in states such as New York or Washington. In a basic sense, that difference is realized by the co-existence of 2 factors unique to VLTs.

The first factor is the existence of a single Random Number Generator located at the central system as opposed to the Random Number Generator located at the machine level. However, this difference alone does not separate a machine as a VLT. In some instances newer technology has created slot machine server based systems which qualify as slot machines even though each individual unit does not have a random number generator but instead random numbers are generated individually by a server for each game.

The second and more important factor is the existence of a finite depleting prize pool. The Random Number Generator located at the central system in a VLT randomly selects a prize from a known group of winning and losing prizes. The VLT then proceeds to show the patron through the use of spinning reels or playing cards the outcome of this randomly selected prize. This is different from a slot machine, which does not use a finite depleting prize pool. Nor does a slot machine's random number generator pick winners. Instead, a slot machine's random number generator picks symbols which correlate to an approved pay table.

So slot machines require each machine to be rigged bit VLTs onlu require tje lottery central computer to be rigged.
In other words the mob is more.honest than a government
Yep. I look at it this way. With a regular slot machine, you theoretically can win on every pull and the law of averages works everything out in the end. The lottery VLT has already predetermined how many winners there are going to be. Most people won't care about this distinction, but I think it's a pretty important one.

It's a game of chance. No one forces you to go & play the Casino or the Lottery, or the Scioto Race track.

Answering you alter ego posts again. Must be a slow topix day.
