Random Number Generator

To ensure the fairness and integrity, the Idaho Lottery uses an industry standard Random Number Generator (RNG). The RNG is licensed, rigorously tested and approved to create the winning numbers for the daily Idaho Pick 3 game, Weekly Grand™ and for second-chance drawings, plus big games like the Idaho $1,000,000 Raffle. The randomness of the RNG is certified by Gaming Laboratories Inc., a global independent gaming equipment-testing corporation.

The RNG uses a miniscule, trace amount of plutonium to generate the numbers. Plutonium decays in a completely random manner. When processed with light flashes and an independent computer software program, the RNG will always produce a truly random selection of numbers within the range programmed. The RNG is the most accurate method to ensure complete randomness to any number selection.

Powerball PowerPlay and Mega Millions have a live television draw and do not use an RNG. Hot Lotto Sizzler and Wild Card use an RNG, but the administrator is MUSL.

Although the Idaho Lottery administers youtube.com/idaholottery page, youtube.com is an external company.
