Project and Seminar Material for Computer Science and Computer Engineering

Project and Seminar Material for Computer Science and Computer Engineering


Description of a system and peripherals or devices in a computer system in which the operating of such devices is under control of the central processing unit is termed on-line. Because of the efficiency and fast services, this project is equally aimed at creating a computer based lottery which allows entire to be sold over the phone, ATM, POS Machine, E-mail or via kiosks in which participants are invited to choose at least one unique number from a defined range of numbers. The participants can be automated call answering system allowing the use to key in the no. chosen by using the telephone keypad which records the identity or contact details of the participant.

The project highlights the prospects, problems and suggested solution in developing and implementing an online computer based lottery processing system. The write-up will equally acquaint you with the internet technology that made way for on-line computer lottery based processing system platform in where you are allowed to purchased and fill in the application forms.

1.0 Introduction

1.1 Background of the Study

Lottery system is a very wide field of study and can be classified in so many ways such as the U.S.A. lottery system, Kenlucky lottery system, India lottery system, and German lottery system e.t.c. But the study will be limited to the VISA LOTTERY, which is associated with the United States and the most commonest.

What is the Visa Lottery?

The diversity visa lottery issues 55,000 visas each year by lottery, to nationals of countries considered under represented in the immigrant flow.

Until 1965, our immigration system favoured immigrants who reflected the ethnic characteristics of our society. Heightened concerns about racism brought about by the system civil rights movement led to the scrapping of the system. Ironically, the current visa lottery system is a throwback to the earlier race-conscious system. It structures the immigrant admission system to discriminate among immigrant seeing countries in order to increase the number of immigrants from “underrepresented” countries.

The first visa lottery provision who adopted in 1986, with a set-aside of 10,000 “special visas” for immigrants from countries “adversely affected” by the 1965 immigration act. Over three-fifths of the 10,000 visas went to immigrants from Ireland, Canada and the United Kingdom. They were adversely affected by the 1965 Act only in that residents from those countries first experienced a ceiling that had not affected them previously.

In 1990, a new permanent lottery of 55,000 visas per year was enacted, and a transitional system of 40,000 visas per year (1992 to 1994) was specified of the 108,455 transitional lottery winners who entered the united states through fiscal year 1994, 84% were from Ireland, Northern Ireland, Poland or Canada. Natives of these countries had not been suffering from any discrimination in our past administration of our immigration policy.

1995 marked the beginning of the permanent “diversity” lottery for 55,000 visa per year. Unlike the transitional system, it is supposed to discriminate against countries that have large flows of immigrants already like Mexico and the Philippines. The Act was clearly worded, however, so that the lottery would remain open to the Irish. That is one of the major faults with the lottery system. Because it is “designer immigration” it invites tinkering for or against nationals of a given foreign country.

Legislative Developments

In November 1994, by executive agreement, president Clinton accepted to set-up a one-country immigrant visa lottery for Cubans. In November 1997, congress adopted an amnesty for Nicaraguans and Cubans and special screening provisions for other Central Americans who has come illegally to the United States during the revolutionary fighting in their homelands. To offset this adjustment process, the ceiling of 55,000 on lottery immigrants who lowered to until the amnesty process was completed.

1.2 The Aims and Objectives of the Study

As a limelight, this project aims at going a long way to creating a conducive atmosphere between the post offices and applicants. The researchers have designed a computerized system of lottery processing in which applicants can browse the net from any Internet Service Provider (ISP) center convenient to him/her and get whatever or fills in the application form right there on the net.

Another objective is to reduce the voluminous forms of the applications involved in the manual system and to eliminates the risk involved in carrying physical cash and cheque as the only means of payment in the formal system.

1.2.1 Statement of the Problem

Despite the services rendered by zone lottery organization and post offices, unfortunately, the formal manual system of lottery processing has some unbearable disadvantages. There are:

  1. There is a question of equity in which sponsored family applicants are required a wait of years to get a visa.
  2. The issue of unfairness to applicants, which brings about some applicants not knowing whether their application wasn’t received or they just didn’t win the lottery.
  3. The issue of imposters whereby someone enters the lottery for someone else by forging the signature.
  4. Time consuming and sternums both to the post-workers and the applicants.
  5. The applicant’s applications are so voluminous and tends to get missing in one way or the other.

1.3 Scope of this Study

This project is delimited to on-line computer lottery based processing system services. During the process of the research, lots of constraints were encountered. These are:-

Inadequate Time:

There was a severe limited time that confronted the research work and this now disrupted the speed of this research and project submission.


Lack of adequate finance required was another constraint is this project which deprived the researchers the ability to travel far in fact findings.

Clash Program:

This research was ruined along with other courses which lead to insufficient time for orientation and other required consultations that would have given the research the full required background.

Lack of Material:

The much-needed materials like libraries, journals and magazines for computer projects are not very much available.

1.4 Methodology

The method used in carrying out this project are thus:-

  1. Through the internet
  2. Through written materials
  3. Through interview

7.0 Recommendation and Conclusion

7.1 Recommendation

From the ongoing, the researcher want to recommend the following:-

  1. That the needed machinery be put in place to see to the smooth take off of the project.
  2. That the software has to be reviewed periodically first review, which will take place six month after installation, will enable to detect unforeseen problems that may arise after installation. After the first renew, the software will be reviewed annually to help maintain the software more adequately.

It is worthy to mention that maintenance helps the system software lasts for a very longtime.
Also, it is important to note that this project work is not an end in itself but rather a framework for future modification, this further research is recommended.

7.2 Conclusion

This work was initiated due to the inadequacies of the existing system such as insecurity, duplication, complexity etc. in delivery of the purchased forms and its processing and storage. The new system looked into these inadequacies and attempted successfully to eliminate these problems.

In all, this project has been able to address the problem of lottery system as a scope by developing a functional computer-processing lottery based system. It has also created a client based front-end, a data entry for feedback, and other details.

It is my hope and believes that sometime, someday, this software and work will be hosted/launched on the Internet.
