Todd or anyone: Was not sure where to post this but...... What is up with PA's Lottery Web page that when I try to go there I get this page? Can anyone else access the page or is it just me? Never had anything like this happen before! Any suggestions on what to do?

    Yeah I got the same thing! It works now though. For a second I thought I was important and they banned me from the site for bad-mouthing the raffle. Evil Looking

      Hahahahaha! That's a good one! I could not imagine why it would block my address! Glad to see everyone else had the problem too and it was not just me!

      Wonder why though?

        Not sure. although I have got errors with the site many times before, like the 500 one, and 400 something. Maybe it goes down for maintenance, but I don't understand the IP error. Almost makes it seem as though you were banned lol. It is not like you can't view the results anywhere else, but I like to view the payouts and it is more convenient there.

          When I click the link I see  the site just fine.

          Sounds like their server is having problems.

            I did it. i told the wife to play me a number today for $20 straight , 310 her birthday. and then later on in the early after noon i went and played it for a larger sum.I came back home and checked the web site and it was down. It was down for about 4 and a half hours. So i tried to look up the drawing number at 1:41, which was hard to do since the site was down. But some how i managed to find the 1800 number for the daytime results. it was weird because i clicked the "cache" word on the yahoo search. since when i clicked the main link to any pa lottery web page, it didnt work just came up with the error. it showed some weird stuff like had the daytime drawings for the 3rd of this year and the night times was 665 or something like that from june of 06, so anyway i got the number and kept redialing since it was busy like it mostly is, around drawing time. i think (i never really called it but i heard that it existed.) so anyway to make a long story short i just called the grocery store that i happaned to know the phone number by heart. and i apologized for having to call her but asked if she could tell me the daytime numbers. she said ok hold on please and i held for like 1 minute and she came back and said something like 965 so i was was like oh in my head because i didnt hit. and then she said 1036 for the big 4. go figure.

            is it really possible i am on to something and bet to much, or do i just bet to much and they change the computer picked numbers to mess with my head EVERYDAY?

             

             SO LETS SEE HOW THEY HANDLE THE 927 FOR TONIGHT THAT I PLAYED WITH THE BOOKIE!!!!!!!!!!!!

              There are other places to look at the results as well, including here. Yeah it was down early afternoon.

                Wow! Are you ever paranoid.  If I were you, I would stop gambling.
