    Email would not be practical. Too many numbers. Better if they provide search capability on the website of the ticket or draw ranges.

    Do you want an email with several hundred lines like this:

      300 lines each with a date, draw number and 20 numbers.

      If I lived in CA I'd want it, but everyone would have his own desires on whether to subscribe or not.

        I think for Keno, it's just too much to go through, especially if you play several draws.

        My point is: the Lotto guys have the server and the raw data, make THEM do the work! It would be a piece of cake for them to have a search tool like some sites already have, but also one that searches a range of draws and automatically calculates and displays your total winnings. Heck, even I could write that script!

        You know...that would almost be like online gambling: You buy $50 bucks Keno at the store for the next 50 draws, and then take it home. And for the next few hours you can watch the website and see how many hits you are getting and how much money you have. All the while you can be cooking dinner or watching the news, or out and about and monitoring from your iPhone.

        Much better than standing around in a liquor store with Bubba the local vagrant watching a monitor for several hours...

          Hi Jon.  Thanks for the reply.  I like your idea about just buying the tickets and going home to do other things, then being able to check visually later to find out what was drawn.  Maybe you're right about it being too much trouble for most players to want to have all the results for a day.  The only basis we'd have for guessing about it would be what each of us would prefer.

          But having the LC providing the means of searching and calculating your winnings would probably make a lot of people happy.

          You:  "Much better than standing around a liquor store with Bubba the local vagrant watching a monitor for several hours..."

          You've got to admit it's a unique concept for a lottery game.  The guy who thought that one up must have graduated at the head of his class.
