Hello all Lottery Fans. It seems as though I'm in the right place with those that share the same dreams, and that being to "Defy the Odds". I'm in search of Ohio's past drawings data for Pick3, Pick4, and mainly Rolling Cash. I'm aware that the data is available on Ohio Lottery's website in PDF format, but in looking for either .txt or some other usable format that I can use in Visual Basic or OpenOffice3. Like I've said, I believe that I am in the right place for someone to point me in the right direction, or at least give me an idea of how to avoid the painstaking task of entering all of the data manually. So any help and ideas will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

      WOW. Raven62 you have just made the sun come out.  Thank You so much for the speedy response.

      I would have never thought you could do such a thing.

      I have always thought of a .PDF as a scanned image or object whereas if one were to use a copy and paste technique, one would have to work with its' image or bitmap form.

      I was looking for a easy "readymade' .txt or .csv format that would make things flow smoothly. But i have just tried to copy and paste and things have already started shaping up.

      It will take a little bit of work to sort/format the data in a suitable manner for me, but a whole lot more fun that entering that data manually.

      But.... if you look at Ohio Lottery archives, the .pdf's from 1999 and later are scanned images and i do not see a copy and paste being able to work on those. Maybe you can give me a suggestion for that later part of the data.

      I am trying to backtest a system for Pick3, Pick4, and Rolling Cash. As far as Rolling Cash is concerned those pdf's are great because the game format changed in 2004 so i can now say i have all of that data.

      But for the Pick3, and Pick4... it will mean that i dont have data from 1999 on back.... And I cant be truly satisfied in saying that something has never ever happened before in the history of Pick3, or Pick4 if i never had the data to prove it.

       

      Once again Thank You for your reply.

        Some software that have a trial period will also allow you to download up to date copies of all their data files which include their drawing data.  Once you had all that data separated by games and dates, you can transport it to your program or create a text file that your program can import.

          Post the format in which you need the numbers of the past history and tell from which date forward you need the numbers and then maybe somebody could give you what you want, so:

          In which format you need the history and give a short sample.

          And from which date onwards do you need them?

          Good Luck!

              You can also buy a one month premium membership and access to whole history of every active lottery that LP reports on.  Todd has gone the extra mile to make sure he has their complete histories.

                Sorry for going MIA... Got kinda tied up in work due to a short week, but TGIF.

                Thank you for the replies and ideas... So far I get the hint that the data is not available for casual downloading from anyplace on the web.

                I started using the copy&paste method as Raven62 suggested... It can get a little tricky but I hope to eventually get it done. But Lantern's suggestion is right up my alley. So if any one is willing to email me the data , i surely will appreciate it. 

                At this moment I am in need of Ohio Pick3, Pick4, and Rolling Cash drawings going as far back as anyone can supply. Ohio's website has pdfs' for Pick3 and Pick4 dating as far back to 1979, and Rolling Cash has its first drawing in 2004. So if anyone has the data dating so far back, it will just super great if I can receive a copy.

                Almost any format is workable. (.txt, .csv, .rtf) as long as I can read the file sequentially, i cant complain. The sample posted by Lantern would be just perfect. I would say that all I need is the date followed by the number(s) drawn. And simple enough that I can continue to add to it in Wordpad as the days go on. Thku.

                  If you would get a short paid membership here at L.P. you would be able to get the full past results easier maybe, I can't get past winning numbers from L.P. other than the last 10 draws.

                  But it seems as if I can get for you the last 1 year of the Ohio Rolling Cash and maybe the full past draws for the Ohio pick 3 and 4 games, the pick 4 will be done later, here on this download you will get the pick 3 and the Rolling Cash, I went to quite some trouble to get them.

                  People should not get any ideas from this, I am not about to do this again for others, if you need past draws then get a short paid L.P. membership.

                  As I said, the pick 4 files will follow later sometime.

                        Rolling Cash5 has had 2330 drawings so far, I can't imagine the numbers for pick3 and pick4 with mid-day and evening drawings.  That's a lot of data to process every time you do a work up for a daily game.  Buckeye5 had 2723 drawings during its run so I imagine Rolling Cash5 is good for a couple of more years before being considered for a change.  Even at that if you can only spend a couple of hours on a work out that is a lot of data to process.

                          Lantern- I so much appreciate the effort. As for the Rolling Cash, I can work it out from the pdf's as Raven62 suggested. So thanks again to both of you.

                          RJOh- Have you ever seen a robot sweat?...   Rolling Cash has had 2306 previous drawings, Pick3 14012, Pick 4 12846 (+\- a few).       With pen and paper that would be time consuming, but to a machine, thats chicken feed. I dont have any system that would require that amount of past drawings. I want to backtest some ideas to see if any of them would have made be wealthy thru out the years or would have sent me to the poor house.

                          I want to go back 30+ years and play with paper money. If I can find something that makes a profit then i will play for the next 30+ years with real money. Hopefully not that long.
