44/700 isn't bad, but it's sure not random, let alone double-blind. Hugely biased by: it's those that use eplaya; and, something made them choose to post results. My gut feel from the posts is that the numbers they're posting they believe to be true. But we have no way of knowing... My guess is that those with low percentage of tickets are the ones more likely to post their results.
I trust BMorg has better, and sufficient, data available to them for their brainstorming for possible solutions.
What I find interesting, is to see:

Some of those camps have said

I'm trying to see if there's a way to graph that. Easy to show the first, but to also accommodate the 2nd and 3rd can make for a jumbled illegible result.
Odd. No bears to watch in the dump. Oh well, lets go across the road & pick blueberries.
... but don't harm the red dragon that frequents the area from time to time. He and I have an agreement.
