I launched a couple of things this morning that may be of interest to just about every player.

There is a new lottery results page available by clickling "Lottery Results" on the left menu, or by clicking the "Results" main menu at the top.

I'm really excited about this new page, because it improves the usability of the results section so dramatically.  I've spent a good amount of time picking up some knowledge about Macromedia Flash, and invested some time and money in creating some quality maps.  I hope you like it.

The other really exciting new feature is a brand new service called, Lottery Results Mobile Alerts.

Using this new service, you can subscribe to any games you wish, and receive a text message on your cell phone with the lottery results, the moment the results are published on Lottery Post.

I have partnered with another company specializing in mobile communications, and I think the result is spectacular.

It is such a cool thing to receive the results on your phone, and it's a service that you really can't find anywhere else. 

I'm sure that one or two lottery web sites are going to be scrambling after they see this to duplicate this feature.  (Like the time when my "Jackpot Analysis" invention was stolen about a week after I launched it on USA Mega.)  But other sites can't duplicate the quickness, accuracy, and quality of the Lottery Post lottery results, which is why more people turn to Lottery Post for their daily lottery results than any other web site.

            Bug:

            Clicked on the worldwide results page but none of the map links worked.

            Question:

            Will the worldwide page eventually include Asian lotteries?

            Not in any way to be construed as a critique. Great job.

            gl and Happy Thanksgiving.

                Thanks Todd. If I could only figure out how to send a text message on my Blackberry. I'll read up on it. This will be great not only for most on this site but those of us that travel quite a bit because I myself use the prior draw when trying to figure out what to play in many cases. This will be alot easier than trying to find internet service although I also have 2 browsers on my phone. Great Job and thanks for the hard work involved.

                 

                 Good Luck,

                Blackie.

                  Hey Blackie,

                  You've pretty much encapsulated one of the best things about this new service:  it doesn't require a computer, and it doesn't require working with a mobile browser, which can be incredibly cumbersome.

                  I've had the thing sending me NJ results for a couple of weeks now, and it is very cool to hear that little sound on my phone indicating the results have been delivered, and then flip it open and they're right there.

                  I have also made life easier (and cheaper) for Pick 3 and Pick 4 players, by including results for both games in a single text message.  (Except for the Georgia evening drawing, because they are so far apart.)

                  For those unfamiliar with sending a text message, If you check out the Guide, it includes detailed instructions for how to send a text message on the right side of the page.  The only time you need to send a text message is when you first sign up, so that the service knows which phone to send the results to, and if you want to stop getting the results.)

                  I don't have a Blackberry, so I can't tell you for sure, but it's surely something very similar to what I have in the Guide.

                    Thanks again Todd . I'm sure this will be a great service to many of us.

                      Excellent addition to the post. I like it. Also now, I'll be able to get my results while I'm out instead of stopping to find out.  Kudo's...!

                            I just realized something about my post that may be mis-interpreted.  Pick 3 & 4 are indeed sent as one message, but if you want to get both Midday and Evening draws, that's two separate alerts.

                            For example, to get New Jersey Pick 3 & 4 for both Midday and Evening, signup once using the code NjPick34M (for midday) and once using the code NjPick34 (for evening).

                              Thanks for clearing that up Todd. I havent tried yet but I was going to put all the codes I'm looking for in one text message.

                               

                               Good Luck,
