Nashville (WVLT) - You could be eligible for a refund from the Tennessee lottery.

The problem, according to the lottery, is a programming issue they say was made by a third party vendor.

It impacts you if you bought a Cash 3 or Cash 4 ticket from July 28th through August 20th.

If you still have your ticket, the lottery is offering a double refund for the price of each ticket or two free plays equal to the play amount on the ticket.

And for the next 23 days, the lottery will also offer additional prizes on the Cash 3 and Cash 4 drawings.

Refunds must be claimed by September 13th.

    Ask around to any person knowledgeable about writing programming for computers and they will tell you that computers can't really randomize numbers. They are Pseudo-Random. Meaning they have a pattern and are never really random at all. It isn't possible to do. Pseudo-Random was discovered during WWII when the Germans code was broke that they used to send what they thought to be random lettering that only the receiving machine could decipher. The first computer ever made was the size of a factory and used to break their code. Still today computers can't make anything totally random without making a pattern. You can see the equation for it here and some info on what Pseudo-Random is http://acm.uva.es/problemset/v3/350.html This is the reason that a computer was never used in the first place for the lottery. I'm very surprised that the news stations haven’t looked into this tidbit of information yet. Good luck in all you do, Google Junky
