he is talking about the points distribution, if 84 people split 416 points resulting in 4 points and 7 people got 2 pairs splitting 56 points resulting in 8 points each ;)

and the reason why it shouldnt be rethinked is because it is a LOTTO, not a poker game. Lotto has it's own rules.

If 10 different people have the same 5 numbers in any lotto the prize pool gets devided and the prize for the person with 3 numbers stays the same, like it does here. I think the lotto distribution is as fair as possible.

thats only for that specific day which a lot of people had the 7 for the straight, this is not the case for every lott game.

I think the system is as fair as it can be...... I only got 5 points for the second str8..just the way it goes sometimes the more people with the same hand the less you get...even the British lottos' worked out like this.
