IMO, it coincides with the way they are running the rest of the lottery in Florida! The problem is that the "sheoples" keep lining up for more tickets to buy and throw a blind eye to the terrible service that is given.

Maybe if we set up more lottery terminals in hair salons and truck weigh stations, we can sell more tickets. That will allow the FL lottery to possibly have enough money to operate a web site correctly.

    The servers which are located in Lakeland are down. They are probably using a third party for servers...

      This demonstrates that they don't have an adequate backup plan for one server site being down. At the very least they should have a backup server in a different location for exactly this scenerio which would display relevant information or even a mirror of the current site with all information up-to-date.

        Sweet LOTTOMIKE. I love camaro's, I'm kind of a gearhead,  nice hobby and relaxing after spending the day staring at a computer screen.  I've always wanted a muscle car, preferably a late 60's muscle car.  After I win the FL lotto jackpot this coming Sat I intend to volunteer my services for free to the Florida Lotto to be there Web Site administrator.  I'm up basicly all night anyways. Will be a nice hobby while spending my days at my beach house. Whew barely got through that with a straight face.  LOL Sun Smiley

          As of 12:30am (Friday 4-7-06) the site seems to be back up and working. Hope it continues...

          :)

            "I would have to own another car because I couldn't go out and park a Ferrari somewhere like the Grocery or Movie Theater I'd be nervous about it the whole time."

            Yup, Peter! One reason I'd just buy something like a Camry or a Honda CR-V.   I saw the coolest Honda roadster today. I think it said S2000 on the side.

            Well it's up now. I just read this:

            The Florida Lottery announced today MEGA MONEY™ winner Vasil Scarimontios, 85, of Palm Bay, claimed the March 28 estimated $500,000 MEGA MONEY jackpot.

            Scarimontios chose the one-time lump sum payment option for his winnings in the amount of $326,579.

            It goes onto say he's going to buy a new car and a new truck and travel. Good for him!!

              Rather than create a new topic, I searched for this one. Didn't realize it was started over a week ago and yet it's already April 15th at 11:23 and nothing has changed. The FL site is down again..and on a Saturday night when the jackpot is $64M. Ridiculous!!

              Well, I'll just continue to dance around my candles chanting my numbers for a little while longer.

                And not only is the web site down, but they couldn't show the live drawing for 64 million dollars because of "technical difficulties"!

                  Judging from netcraft they must have a poorly configured proxy server. They changed to it on the 3rd of this month and that's when the complaints showed up.
