    Lottery Questions

    Hi I'm being badgered to death by a family member who wants to know why the lottery result are not available immediatley after they are drawn. Ie why are they not available at 7:35 pm

    and you'll be pleased there is a follow up question

    Why don't you see the lucky stars balls being loaded into the bag before they are dropped in the lottery machine? I think the premise is here is that they might not be all in the bag.

    Nothing on the lottery web site

    Are you sat down mate.

    The truth is it takes 5 mins to fix the results and brainwash the nation.

    I thought 7.30 was the cut off & the draw was 8.30?

    Anyways. The lottery has entered the wrong numbers on its website before. So I guess they download all entries twice at least & then isolate the data & treble check the draw. Before telling people they have won £17 million when they have only won £17

    The results & winning tickets have to be checked and audited by the Lottery Commission and Independent Auditors before official release (worked 10 yrs in the Lottery Industry - including with Camelot).
