The number of drawings for each game is displayed at the top of the page when viewiong the past results.  I think you're counting the number of midday and evening games together in your count of 13,212, right?

I don't worry too much about transposing because all numbers are imported into my system by computer, never hand-typed.  It ensures that whatever is on the list in entered 100% perfect.

That's right, the list I maintain considers the midday & evening draw for New York Pick-3 to be the same game. 

I started my list back in 1997.  At the time you had to send a check to the state, (I think it was $12 or $15) and they sent you a broad stack of 11 x 17 computer printout sheets.  I had to painstakingly input the then 6ooo+ numbers by hand.  

I'm sure you know what a tremendously valuable resource this is.  I haven't done any comprehensive research, but most of the states I've looked at over the years only offer access to a single year of past results - in a fashion that is not particularly user friendly to transfer to an Excel sheet.

          Are you also looking for games which have been retired?

          Not really, I usually take old games out of the results pages about a week after the final drawing, so any past results would not even be visible.  But thanks for asking.
