Check it out at fllottery.com

They finally updated it and it is a lot nicer now.  They have amount of winners in most of the games instead of just prize amounts.  Their old site was kind of lacking.

    I think some people may disagree with you on that:

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

      I'm one of them. They have totally ruined a good thing. It was nice to see a list of numbers in a flash. I don't know what they were thinking. The site has a cartoonish look to it.

      There are other sites that give a short list atleast. I'm gonna start using them instead.

        I have emailed my dissatisfaction with the 'new and unenhanced site'.  Please keep the emails and phone complaints going.

          I agree. I did like the old format better. And I liked being able to see the machine/ball set information.



          "There are other sites that give a short list atleast. I'm gonna start using them instead."


          We already have those resources right here at Lottery Post.   Premium Members already have access to a "short list" (past 10 draws) and a complete list of all draws for all of the Florida lottery games (and other states, too) on the Results page.

          On the Florida (FL) Lottery Results page, clicking on the Game Information link for Fantasy 5 (or any other game) shows the results of the past 10 draws.

          And if you want a list of the all the past draws, click on any game's Past Drawing Results link. For example, the Florida Fantasy 5's Past Drawing Results.


          I did find the DOWNLOADS page on Florida's new site and they have added a few new interesting pdf files. Two examples are the 2005 Fantasy 5 Payouts and the 2005 Mega Money Payouts. They have the payout information from 2004 as well. These documents contain a wealth of information and are nicely done.

            Thanx Mr. Bobb. I totally forgot about the great resource already here.

            They never show the ballsets for the pick-3. Atleast I don't remember, but I can only say that I would win much more often if they did show them on a daily basis. If I'm correct, they used to show them and stopped for some reason. I think they rotated the tubes every three days, and told you what position they were in.

            I think New York used to show them, back in the early 90's, when I lived in Queens.

              Lottery USA lists a year of Draw history for every State Lottery game  so that will compensate for one of the changes FL made on it's website, personally I kind of like the "New Look" very colorful along with the new format for displaying the previous nights numbers.The number of winners plus the amount of the pay-outs is  a pretty good addition as well, if anyone has noticed they kind of copied GA Lottery website there changes were done awhile back.The color scheme is different but the layout/formats are quite similiar so they didn't have to look far for ideas on the new website design.

                You're welcome!  Thanks to Todd, we do have access to some great resources here on Lottery Post.   Thumbs Up

                I'd be lost without this place! 

                 

                 "They never show the ballsets for the pick-3..."

                Since I'm not a Florida resident, I can't say.  I usually get down there 2 or 3 times per year, sometimes more often.  The Florida Lottery is my favorite, especially the Fantasy 5 and Mega Money games.

                  Yuck!  To each their own, I suppose.  I find that site almost unreadable.  They're the only ones I know who actually lists the year as '05 and jackpots like "110 Thousand".  Weird.  What if you want to see back farther than a year, or if you want to run a search?  You're SOL.

                    The new look is kinda clean looking.  Less confusion.  If I could play FLL, I would be more concerned.  As it is, I can only go there, then wish life was fair. It's like my eigth-grade sweetheart. She is out there, some where, just not available to me.

                    Cheers

                      I hate it. Not only do I hate the look of it, I always pick my numbers by looking at past winners and when I clicked on my bookmarked download of past winning numbers that used to be on the site it was no longer there. "File null" or something. They got rid of it. I don't give a flip about how many winners there were, I only care if I am a winner.

                        I am wrong, just went back to the site and clicked on site index, and the winning number downloads are there.

                          It's great that we have a nicely formatted and easy to navigate Results page and can easily Search Drawings right here on Lottery Post!  Why bother with other web sites when the best lottery resources are right here?

                              Many of the sites that provide draw results and lottery software programs that provide draw histories rely on the state lottery web sites for their information.  When lottery web sites stop providing complete information like draw order and machine ballset information, you'll soon find the same information vanishing off the other sources as well.  BobP
