I personally don't like it, It is too busy,redundant definitely not user friendly. I like the old one better. Who asked for redesign? I quess someone needed a job. Of course they didn't consult us anyway...what cha think?

    Oh you are so right Ms Pat, I don't like it either. I liked the smiling face of that happy winner when the old sight came up.

    People never like change so they say but I guess somebody needed a job. Good insight there.

    I hope they bring the old one back personally.

      I Agree!

      I saw a note a few weeks ago to watch for the new design because of the addition of Powerball.  It could've been done better than what they did.  I sent them an email and told them that it sucked.  I don't think I'll be getting a reply, do you?

            Every time I click on this NEW webb site, here's what happens.... immediately my eyes start hurting, I get a headache and I actually believe my blood pressure rises (don't have my BP cuff handy).  Where the heck is  the history of cash 3 and 4 winning numbers and the payouts from the beginning of the games?  If you know, please tell me.

            I DO NOT LIKE THIS NEW WEBB SITE!!

            My eyes still hurt and that's the truth.

              They don't even have the number search ready. That's how I do my workouts. Why would you unveil a new web site before it's finished???

                Being able to check the numbers that have fallen in the past is about the only reason I looked at GA's lottery site.  If I can't do that like we could do in the past, then I am THROUGH with them!!  Apparently there is a big difference of opinion of what people call progress.  I loved the old site, but this absolutely makes me SICK!!

                        I like some things on the new site, and dislike some things.

                        One thing I will mention in defense of the GA Lottery and the new site design is that many people hate when a site changes, no matter what the change is.  I faced this myself a few times when I changed Lottery Post.

                        When I went from a single "flat-style" forum to offering several forums in a new design, you would not believe the nasty e-mails I got, with people saying "I hate it!!" and saying they would never visit again.  In fact, I kept the very first feedback e-mail I received, which was simply, "Hate it, hate it!"

                        As a Web site owner, sometimes you just have to go with what you feel is right, and be prepared to take some heat the next day when people see it.  You can only hope that your instinct was right and that with some little tweaks here and there everyone can love it again.

                        With that being said, here is my list of likes:

                        • Colors are a little fresher/brighter.
                        • I like that they tried to make it a little more interactive.

                        My list of dislikes is longer:

                        • The winning numbers box at the bottom is automatically "open" when you first bring the site up.  As such, it covers up the bottom of the page, and many people will not even know that they can scroll the page down for more content.  There's actually quite a bit of content that might be missed by a majority of people.
                        • Some states (now Georgia) feel that the winning numbers should be accessible from every single page, via some kind of pop-open box.  I'm not sure that's such a great idea.  I think it would be better to simplify the page and have people go to a familar page for the results.  They already have "Winning Numbers" in the top-level menu -- why bother also putting it in a separate pop-open box on every page?
                        • It's hard to tell what's a link and what's not -- and where you will end up if you click on something.  For example, click Winning Numbers at the top and check out the black-on-white plain text links for View Recent Results.  Plus, the name on the page -- "Winning Numbers Search" -- doesn't even match the name you clicked ("Winning Numbers").  When you click Winning Numbers, I think most people expect to see a list of winning numbers, not a page of game logos.  Why not just display the winning numbers on that page??
                        • Are "Events" and "Education" really worthy of appearing as 2 of the 5 biggest menu items on every page?  Why isn't the Player's Club up there, or other items that people are likely looking for?
                        • As many others have said, it's way too busy -- not enough whitespace.  If you're going to put that much info on one page, it at least has to follow a simple layout and color scheme.

                          why can't I search for a past draw?? Something's Fishy Too many flashy lights its blinding and I couldnt even find what I was looking for! All that new stuff and  I still have to wait 20 minutes to see the winning results, hint: some other states let you watch live from the website. I like the old one better,

                          fancy fonts and pretty colors!!

                          not even half as good as the other!!
