                  Michigan began on 11/13/1972... a 50¢ weekly "Green Game" with a $1M top prize... Daily 3 didn't go on sale for over 4 years after that.

                        Jack,

                        You being up an interesting point, which is our drawing database only contains the total amount of data given to us by our data provider.  While it is extensive, it seems to go back as far as eight years, and then stops.  One of the low-priority tasks on my issue log is to identify, track down, and import older missing data.

                         

                        Check the State Lottery Report Card
                        What grade did your lottery earn?

                            Here's a summary of Louisiana's lottery.

                            October 6, 1990 - A statewide election is held and the lottery amendment is on the ballot.  The lottery passes with 69.2% in favor of it.

                            September 6, 1991 - The first scratch game, Louisiana Treasures, goes on sale.

                            So I guess our lottery started in 1991.
