Does anyone know when the changes have occured for powerball and mega millions?

What were the limits from date to date? Like how many balls were in use before changes were made? Including max power ball size or mega ball size change.

While I dont play power ball because I live in illinois I'm trying to make program to make predictions for it anyway. On the net all the drawings are in drawn order for power ball. but I need to know how many balls were in play from date to date.

I Also need to know the same things for mega millons. I remember mega changing once but forgot when. What were its limits from date to date. Are the game quantity changes posted some where here at lottery post. 

Thanks
