Here in IL. our official lottery site in boring and lacks features. I was tooling around and was checking out the official site for the Georgia Lottery, it's cool and it tells you the number of winners for p-3 and p-4 and the total amount they paid out. Also you can search previous numbers and see when they hit last and see the same breakdown as listed above. Has anyone else been to any cool official state lottery sites?

    maine's is the worst.

    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.

        what states are doing, and other states need to do, is make the drawings available online.

          Many of them have a lot of good features and many of them need better features. My guess is it probably has something to do with how much they are willing to pay for Website and who there willing to pay to keep the site running and updated. Another thing might be they are required to give out only certain information. So there not going to add features that is not written in their charter, or operation code. Maryland has all their numbers written in year format for past years. And a running month to month written format. They don't have a number based search feature tool. If you want to search for a number to see if it hit in the past you have to manually go through each list one by one or download the numbers into excel. They don't supply any information about how much is paid out or how many people hit a pick 3-4-5 or lotto drawing. Unless it breaks the bank. Or lotto is hit. So after reviewing some other state lottery sites I'd have to say MD is on the bottom of that list also.

            Georgia would be good except they don't give a damn about their players needing the numbers from the evening draw for the next day.  The night numbers are drawn at a normal time like Florida, but unlike Florida they wait till about 3: am to post the winning numbers on their site.

            Worst site is AZ. they don't post their winning numbers until 7:am the next day, claim they have to be checked and verified, but they send them out to the associated press at a normal time.  Wonder how often any lottery's numbers had to be recalled after being checked and verified.

            Florida is one of the very best because they give draws both regular and in drawn order of the numbers, they also provide machine and ballset information and tell you the last time they destroyed the ballsets and started fresh so you know what history to work with.

              i agree with all of you. the problem is, though, with as much money is at stake for potential winners, youd think they would make info public and online as all of you speak of. if they dont, then they have something to hide. maybe they dot want people wandering  "how" they know the results and payouts . as ive mentioned in other threads,  if they know all of this one second afterward, whats stopping them from knowing all of this one second before the draw? and "manipulating this info....................hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

                I would love it if Illinois would post how much money was paid out on the p3. Tn does this and it makes you feel a little bit better about where your money is going. This might sound crazy but I really like knowing that players are getting paid pretty hefty sums at times.

                  yeah tennessee is good about posting the winning amounts per draw and past numbers but if they could get the graphics a lil better and put a few extra things in there it would be great.now if we could get a pick4 i'd be happy............
