How could they not track this information, it's all done with a computer!


Probably because the person who handles the email requests can only supply a generic answer. The person who does the pc data base couldn't be bothered. And or the person who replied to the email has no knowledge in the data base area.

                Thanks for all the responses.  It looks like the states are pretty good on average at responding.

                I got a kick out of onenumber's response re: the IL payouts question.  That info is NOT on their website and their responses were inane.

                Posted 4/6:  IL Pick 3 midday and evening until they hit:  555, 347 (str8).

                  I live in Tennessee and emailed about the website. They did not have a page to show remaining prizes still available on scratch off tickets. They responded very quickly and within two months they added this feature to the web page, I was very pleased.Miss Bee

                    I was a very bad boy a moment ago, for the very first time I sent an email to the Tx lottery and told them how upset I am with them and how I don't like computer draws and I said some other bad things.

                    I even told them not to bother to answer my email.

                    I was not very very nasty, but was bad enough, it's because of all the years of bad feelings towards them, I finally told them off.

                    Oh! Well, I am sure that this is not the only such letter that they have ever gotten and I didn't call them any bad 4 letter words or any thing like that, I was very bad but not in a really nasty way.

                    I almost never send emails like that one.

                        I have emailed the Arizona lottery a few times and gotten replies within 24 hours.

                        Recently I've had a problem with a specific question though.

                        I asked them where I could find out how many winners there were for Fantasy Five and generally for all Arizona games and their reply told me where to find the winning numbers.

                        I responded that I knew where to get the winning numbers but that I wanted to know where to find out how many people had the winning numbers. That was a week ago and I guess they won't be responding.

                        Apparently, the public isn't privy to all public information.

                        Anybody know how to get that info in Arizona?

                        Thanks,

                        lazyjim

                          LazyJim, that sounds unusual.  The IL website tells you how many winning tickets were sold for its lotto and pick 5, where they were sold, how much they were worth and whether they were Quick Picks or not.

                          However they don't give out any payout info on their pick 3 and 4 like some other states do.  Since we're still a "ping pong ball state" that does not bother me very much.

                          It sounds like the states all distribute their info differently on their web sites.

                          Posted 4/6:  IL Pick 3 midday and evening until they hit:  555, 347 (str8).

                            i don't get how a state could have two pick 3 drawings a day,and even a pick 5,but no pick 4,i'd rather have a pick 3 once a day and pick 4 once a day,not pick 3 twice a day and no pick 4,the state lotteries make no sense sometimes
