Yeah, you're right on that. I guess it's still luck of the draw though a computer is doing the drawing. Why did they change the format? Did they suspect that Orlando was rigging the ball machine or something?
After we won the lotto twice in a row, the second time having the smallest chance, they changed the process to up the chances for the worst team from ~16% to 26%. I think that's when they switched from ping pong balls with team logos to using ping pong balls to pick a series of four numbers (1-14) with each sequence being assigned to a specific team. So, they still use the ping pong balls, just in a slightly different fashion.
