Message from the owner
I can proudly say that Lottery Post is the world's largest and most popular lottery-related website on the Internet!
However, that did not happen overnight, and did not happen without tremendous effort,
personal investment, and sacrifice on my part. Over the past 20 years, I wonder
which activity I have devoted more time to: working on Lottery Post, or all other
activities combined? It would be a close call either way.
Lottery Post is turning out much like I envisioned when I first came up with the idea
many years ago. It is an expression of my most personal thoughts and ideas, unaltered
Because the construction of Lottery Post has been so personal, I am very protective
of my creation. On one hand I try to make access to Lottery Post as unrestricted
as possible for all players of the lottery, but on the other hand I do not want
my unique ideas and inventions to be stolen, as has happened a few times already.
Above all else, I ask you to please respect my work, with the same care that you
would want someone else to show for your own work.
If you own (or are in the process of creating) a lottery-related web site, please
do not attempt to use my ideas, content, data, program code, or anything else from
Lottery Post, on your site.
A few years ago, I created something called "Jackpot Analysis" at another
site of mine called USA Mega (www.usamega.com).
It was a cool invention that I dreamed up one day when I couldn't locate the information
anyplace on the Internet. Within a few weeks, another lottery site (which shall
remain nameless because they don't deserve the attention) installed the same exact feature on their site, and shamelessly didn't even bother to change the name. My bad for not learning to trademark
terms prior to that, but that was just downright nasty and unethical on their part. Please don't be like them.
If you own (or are in the process of creating) a web site that has nothing to do
with the lottery, and you are interested in using some of the techniques I've created
at Lottery Post, then I'd be happy to discuss sharing them with you. I enjoy giving
back to the development community — it's the people looking to rip off my
site I don't like.
(I share many concepts I develop for Lottery Post on my technology blog located
