I just learned on the news that the Michigan Lottery is rejecting the numbers 1212 on it's daily four drawing. They claim too many people have played those numbers and have programmed their machines to not allow them to sell tickets with the numbers 1212. So, my question is, what happens if the numbers 1212 are drawn? Would you want to know exactly how many people actually won with those numbers? Or how many of those numbers were rejected? It seems to me that the lottery is considered a game of chance, and should not be restricted. If this is the case, it proves the lottery is a scam.
