I just finished installing some updates to Lottery Post this morning.  Nothing Earth-shattering, but welcome improvements nevertheless.

  • Upgraded the rich text editor to the latest version (2.1.1.1), which includes many bug fixes and performance improvements.  For example, the Link button did not work properly in the last version.  The editor also now looks for a few strange little extra characters that creep in there, and removes them.  For instance, in the previous version if you press Enter twice (for two blank lines), then pressed Backspace, you'd see an an extra space at the beginning of the line.  Now, the editor looks for the extra space and deletes it.  The editor feel "snappier" too, due to lots of little performance increases.
  • Updated state results pages to include a new "Special Games"section, which is currently being used to display results of raffle games, but can include any other type of results in the future.  The Special Games section does not appear in those states that don't have any special drawings.
  • Added Tennessee raffle results (see News forum).
  • Added Michigan raffle results for April 20th (better late than never).  You will notice that I added a little feature to all the Michigan raffle results to either show or hide the extra "000" at the beginning of each number.  For some reason the Michigan Lottery has an unnecessarily long ticket number, and that feature should make it easier to read.

By the way, am I missing any raffle results?  If you had a raffle in your state, can you please check the Lottery Post results page for your state and see if it's listed there?  Thanks!

    Once again Todd, thanx for all that you do here on the LP. It's definitely much appreciated.

    I'm still waiting for a feature that will make me hit straight on a daily basis without any effort on my part....LOL Jester

      That feature already exists!  It's called Lucky's Followers System, and you just click a button.  Well, maybe not a straight hit every day, but many days!
