Just for posterity, I'll post the complete answers in case anyone else is wondering.
For Illinois, the data goes back to the beginning of the 5/39 series, as Todd pointed out.
There is no indication that the 5/30 game ever existed. This is also the case for other games that have been discontinued, or had major changes. Except PowerBall.
For powerball (went from 5/53 & 1/42 to 5/55 & 1/42), the higher numbers (54 & 55) begin to show up in the data, but all the old draws are there, too. No note of when the matrix changed. So, if you aren't a regular follower of PB, you won't know how long the 54 & 55 have been there waiting to fall.
This won't matter for those who play QPs, but you folks who play systems/backtest need to consider that.
As for downloading the old numbers, the most recent numbers will be at the top. You can save the page as an *.htm (or *.html). Then you will need to do some creative editing, or copy and paste.
In neo-conned Amerika, bank robs you.
Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms should be the name of a convenience store, not a govnoment agency.
