MARTINSVILLE, N.J. — For the first time, Canada lottery players can obtain a year's worth of lottery winning numbers for each of the country's games in one book.
Lottery Post 2009 Lottery Results Almanac, Canada Edition (ISBN 978-0-9826272-1-1), available for purchase immediately by publisher Speednet Group, is offered just two weeks after the United States edition of the same title was published.
"Over time these lottery results almanacs will become increasingly important to daily lottery players," says Todd Northrop, the book's author. "With Web sites and data coming and going on the Internet, maintaining an archival record of results becomes critical for serious players relying on historical lottery data."
"To my knowledge, no other resource like this exists," Northrop added. "So it was important for me to create a high-quality, accurate book, worthy of collecting and archiving."
At Lottery Post, a community Web Site geared toward daily lottery players, members use the lottery results almanacs to reference past winning numbers, as well as chart new possibilties for upcoming draws. It is not uncommon for players in one country, state, or province to use past numbers from another area in their systems and calculations.
"You have compiled information in this book that will help people all over that play the lottery and for anyone who might be interested in learning what could help them win, or just play the game," said Lottery Post member "Lucky". "I personally like to use it for a quick reference."
"Well worth the purchase price," added Lottery Post member "jrosina". "It will more than pay for itself."
The new edition covers all official government lottery games played in Canada during the year 2009. In addition to a listing of all the winning numbers, each game is described, including drawing schedule, game number matrix, drawing method, online links, and other pertinent notes.
Northrop plans future almanac editions from year-to-year, and cautions interested buyers not to wait before picking up a copy of each edition.
"As with any annual publication, if you think you're going to want to own this, don't wait too long to buy it," Northrop said. "In the publishing industry older volumes are always harder to find than the very latest publications, especially in a long-running series. People could eventually end up paying a higher price in the secondary market."
