Can someone with Platinum membership tell me how far back the Jackpot History for Powerball and Mega Millions go?  I will be happy to purchase the membership, but I would like to know how much data they have.

For example, does Jackpot History for Mega Millions go back to Feb 6, 1996 or June 20, 2000?  How about Jackpot History for Powerball?  Specific dates will be really helpful.

I would greatly appreciate your help. Thank you.

        Unfortunately, the jackpot data does not go back to the first drawing of The Big Game, although the results do.  I have an on-going quest for the remainder of the jackpot data, and I think I'll have it soon, but it is not available from a reliable online source that I am aware of.

        Based on e-mails received from this person, I believe they are simply trying to get my data for a web site they are building, or something like that.  Paying $7.95 is a very cheap way for that person to get a lot of data that I have worked for years to get.

          I wonder about eecheng82's date of Feb 6,1996 for the start of BigGame.  My file starts Sep 6,1996 which I thought was accurate and Michigan lottery website supposedly have all the BigGame drawings and their data only goes back to Sep 6,1996 like mine.

            I use the megamillions history in the drawn order mainly. Ascending only occasionally.

            Selling the information--I'm not sure is a good Idea. Perhaps getting it free with membership would be okay ---If you get the information in either way in a text or word files.

              Looks like you sent me this same message in a private message too.  I'm not sure what you're getting at, since I do not offer a service to sell past data.

              But since you ask, I'm wondering where you're coming from, since there is an entire industry dedicated to selling historical data.  Are all of these businesses wrong for selling data?  Maybe I'm just not understranding your point.

                You're right RJOh, the start date of The Big Game was Sept. 6, 1996.

                      Do you mean this kind of data?

                      If that's what you're talking about, you can get the data for some of the earlier draws on the Mega Millions site.

                      Change the dates in this url (date format doesn't have to be 2 digit -- 9/8/1998 or 09/08/1998, both work) -

                      **http://www.megamillions.com/numbers/drawDetails.asp?drawDate=12/12/1997

                       

                      1996 isn't available, neither is 1997 -- except for a the last 3 games in December.  I didn't check all the dates for those years.  Maybe there are other ones available scattered amongst the ones that aren't.

                      1998-2000 appear to be available.

                      Edit:  I just noticed that the 6/16/2000 jackpot says $7M, but Big Game jackpots started at $5M, so take the data with a big grain of salt...even if it is off the MM site.

                        Disregard the Edit in my last post.  I just checked the game before it and that one has the $5M jackpot.  I didn't realize there was such a small jump in prize amounts between games.
