On the MegaMillions website http://www.megamillions.com/winningpicks/draw_details.asp?date=4/14/2006, the drawing video listed for 4/14/2006 is actually the one for 4/11 drawing
and not the 4/14 drawing. 

To me, making this type of mistake is not very professional --especially for MegaMillions!

Which brings on a further question, how accurate are the winning numbers posted at their
website?  If alot of people are downloading this info to their lotto programs, they may be
downloading incorrect information.

What do you have to do to get accurate information?

    Insetad of the "official" site, use USA Mega (www.usamega.com).  There is much more info there, and it's much easier to find.

     

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

      I don't usually go to the Mega Millions website also Todd due to possible errors (spoilers). I just like to see how the draw results come out and go to the usamega website.

        Well that is not good for sites like that to make those types of mistakes.  Especially if you depend on the info to see what numbers where drawn when if you wheel, etc. your numbers.

          As Todd mentioned in his post, you can check USAMEGA.com and in addition all the MegaMillions states maintain a data file.  I usually check megamillions, usamega and the Ohio lottery websites to make sure my data history is correct.

              For checking if there is a winner on drawing dates I use the Illinois and Ohio lottery sites and www.usamega.com to see what the cash prize is. As for the videos mistakes happen. Just be glad they are honest enough to have ball drawings with recordings of the drawings available online.

                Hooray!  Megamillions finally posted the correct video!  Since Friday, the incorrect video was posted.

                Hmmm, I wonder if they found their mistake from the Lottery Post Forums . . . .
