The Florida Lottery site has been down since I signed on at 11:30 to check my numbers.  It's a good thing we have Lottery Post so I can check the results and find out I lost my money BEFORE I go to bed. LOL

    Still down.  At least as of this writing.  I was going to write to them and mention Todd might be willing to help for a fee.  LOL 

    Think I'll stop writing them letters.  I've only written a few emails to the Florida Lottery, but I bet they have me flagged as that..... Crazy  player.

        I agree, the Florida Lottery has one of the most unreliable web site anywhere, and it seems to fall on deaf ears.  They are completely unresponsive to all complaints I have made.  Just horrendous.

        I tracked down all the results, and Lottery Post's Florida page is all up to date, even though Florida's "official" site is still AWOL.

          Thanks, Todd.  I appreciate it.  I have 2 MegaMoney tickets for Tues evening I tried to check on the FL site.

            Nobody hit the Mega Money jackpot.  The other prizes were $585, $268, $42.50, $22, $2.50, and $2.  (I'm sure you know which prize matches with which prize tier.)

              Well, rather than begin a new topic, I thought I'd post on this one. 

               

              Just went to check my megamoney tickets and the Florida site (in the news sections) reads that one person from (where else?) Miami won an estimated $2 million jackpot.  I'll bet this is another one of their errors!  The jackpot rolled from $500,000 to $800,000 and then to $1,400,000.  I know this is a pari-mutuel state, but the estimated jackpot should read $1,400,000 - I'll put money on it!!  I doubt if it could possibly jump from $800,000 on Tuesday to $2,000,000 on Friday.  That would be a record.

                Good catch, I wonder if they'll post a correction.

                  Florida's site down?

                  Do you mean to say, that they do have a site?

                  How can anybody tell, that they do, if it is always down?

                  So, they do have a part-time site, Why don't they go full time as other states do?

                  Maybe Todd can build them a new site and even host it for them

                    Good catch, I wonder if they'll post a correction.

                    Last time I sent an email to let them know there was a mistake, they did make an "adjustment" but did not post anything about the correction.  The email I sent Friday night said that, although I'm not the lucky winner in Miami, I'd be awfully disappointed to find out I won $600K less than what I read on the official Florida web site. 

                    The site has been up (sometimes a little slow) but the news section is still wrong.  They'll probably change it on Monday.  We'll see.

                      Hopefully Fidel doesn't have Raio Marti messing with the FL Lotery website!

                      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                      There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                        I thought Castro was dead until a few days ago when he suddenly appeared in the news to criticize Bush.

                             Radio Marti, radio 

                            I read in a tabloid once that "The Beard" (Fidel) has been gone for quite some time, and the guy there now was one of his doubles.

                            But seriously, there's quite a few casino interests waiting to turn Havana back into a popular resort like it used to be.

                              Maybe they should host an online lottery there on Cuba, a niquel store.
