All Texas results have been updated and verified, including past jackpot data.  The grid on page 1 has been updated.  The first Two Step draw date in the Lottery Post database (5/18/2001) was in fact correct (not 5/15/2001).

    Whew!  Been doing some serious number-crunching today.  All Virgina and Florida results have been loaded and verified from the inception of each game.  This is in addition to all the Texas games, which I did earlier today.

    Also, I have loaded all Mega Millions results, back to the first drawing of when it was called The Big Game (9/6/1996).  Looking at the past results, one would notice whether they are viewing The Big Game or Mega Millions results because the bonus ball is correctly named the Big Money Ball for The Big Game and the Mega Ball for Mega Millions.  Big Game/Mega Millions Jackpots are loaded starting in June of 2000, but I'm having trouble locating jackpot data earlier than that.

              Thank you very much, that's very nice to hear!  My "nit-pickiness" (attention to detail) comes as a result of my career as a consultant.  In that field, it is both a survial technique as well as a differentiator from competitors.

                I updated the grid with the Hot Lotto first draw date.  LP had every draw.

                I am still undergoing this process, and it is a lot of work.  I could really use some help from people who are looking to "give back" a little to the site that helps them every day!  It just requires a little digging at your state lottery site -- or if you'd like to help with states other than your own.

                  Hi Todd,

                  In reference to Georgia's cash 3 and cash 4:

                  In the beginning:

                  August 10, 1993     cash 3 evening only, first number was 170

                  January 12, 1998    cash 3 midday (no Sunday midday),  first number was 186

                  April 19, 2009          cash 3 midday to include Sunday morning)  first number 053

                   

                  Now to cash 4:

                  April 18,1997           cash 4 evening (no midday)  first number 3557

                  February 5,2001      cash 4 midday (no Sunday)  first number  6468

                  April 19, 2009          cash 4 midday ( to include Sunday) first number 1708

                   

                  I hope I got this right!

                    Hi Maggie,

                    Yes, that is great, thank you!

                    I have updated the chart on page 1, and you can see the info that I used/needed -- which was the start date of the very first drawing for each game.  It's basically a big checklist that shows the first actual drawing, and the first drawing in the LP database. 

                    If the LP database does not have all the draws I highlight the row yellow.  If it does have all the draws, I highlight it gray.  That way we can all see at a glance what information I have already compiled, and what games need my attention in order to load old data.

                    So basically I just need the state, game name, and date of the very first drawing for the game.

                    To complete Georgia, are you able to find the first drawing of Fantasy 5?

                    I appreciate the help very much.  My plate is completely full of activities, so much that many things are not getting done at all.  Any help I can get from members to relieve me of some of the grunt work (like researching dates) really helps me out.

                            I appreciate the info, but it would be better to put in a different topic.  This topic is strictly for starting dates for lottery games in the chart on page 1.  It is a very narrow piece of information I am looking for for each game, not general info.
