I thought the program was good. No one really expected a definitive explanation although I don't think he would have been able to resist giving some definite hints as to how it was done.

People wanted to believe that he had used some supernatural means or discovered some pattern to the lottery numbers, and he offered those explanations to those who wanted to hear them. However he did explain how he did the trick, although due to its illegality he protested emphatically that he did not do it that way.
