I personally check my state's lotto website. Now that I'm working again I usually get off really late and the site already updated the prize amount by the time I check it so that means if the prize doesn't go back to the reset value, it means I didn't win the jackpot and I just hate that feeling. Lol

        I actually drive to the headquarters some 500 miles away. This way, If I'm a winner, I'm already there, and can claim it at that very moment. My gas bill is really putting a hurt on my wallet, ($600.00 bucks a week) but it'll be worth it in the long run.

            For PowerBall or MegaMillions, I check USAmega right after the drawings.  Their results are usually posted by 11:10 pm.  For other games I use the local lottery website.

                    First I usually go to the states website to check but if it's not there I check the USA Mega site.

                     

                    I usually check a day or two after the drawing so it's almost always on the official state lottery site by the time I go to it. There's a few times I want to check right after the drawing though and sometimes the official site isn't updated for 1-2 hours.
