It has been 1 hour since the Midday draw and it still has not been posted on the Official California Lottery web site!  I think they must be out surfing or something!  This happens a lot in California.  Sometimes the draw results are not posted for hours, sometimes not until the next day!

     I have no idea of what is wrong with the California Lottery. I too have noticed their failure to post the winning midday numbers in a timely manner. I tried  to E mail them to address the problem  to no avail.  It's not possilbe. I'm truely disgusted  with them and am at a loss as to what to do about it.

      Well, the interest in the lottery in California (at least the Daily 3) is very low.  If you look at the total number of winning tickets each day and compare it with other states...there is no comparison.  We are lucky to get 1,000 winning tickets in one day, but many states have thousands of winning tickets each and every day.  I don't do well at predicting California, so I seldom play it any more, but I do predict for others and a timely posting of the winning numbers would be helpful!!

        The draw was 925.  After going to the "winning numbers" page, click on "Daily 3" and it shows the current number!!  It just is not on the "winning numbers" page, yet!!  Amazing!

          CA is always like that. they wait to post the jackpots for their games as well.

          I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

            Unfortunately Cal Lottery is trying harder to keep the money rather than make it more interesting for other players to want to play.

              Hopefully, a letter to Ca's State Treasurer's Office would clean that up. Imagine, We'll take your money...But, we don't do this and we don't do that and we will do what the h@3% we want to do! Every other state is on point with an immediate drawing return (That is unless I visit them) but, it has not hit Calottery who or what keeps them there. What's wrong with them? I guess everything is going to be random. Including, knowing whether or not, you may have or have not won. Tell Arnold S. He'll slap 'em around a bit and get things on the Ball.

                Hey Poway Dude, Try calling this number 1-800-568-8379. You can get the latest numbers from there, or make a complaint.

                  I know the CA lottery recently updated their web site (on Nov. 1st), so there may be a glitch with their automation.  I would recommend continuing to send e-mails and calling them, so that the issue gets attention by the webmaster.
