The Florida Lottery office in Tallahasse seems to be opposed to the idea of posting on their website the Florida Lottery number history to the degree of detail that is provided by the PowerBall game on their website.  The Powerball game on their website provides the number results for test drawings, the ballsets used, and the numbers in the order they were drawn in and a variety of dates. 

In contrast, the Florida Lottery only provides the numbers drawn and what date they were drawn in. In short, the data they are providing is by no means in the same level of detail that the PowerBall game provides electronically on their website.

I am so bothered by all of this to the degree that I'm trying  to  determine what is the best way to force them to change.  I want available for download all drawing history for all games that includes a lot more detail than they currently offer.  After talking to them on the phone the impression I got is that they don't want to change. 

Invoking the Florida Sunshine law does not seem to work. They feel they are complying to the Florida Sunshine Law by by mailing to you all the number history you want printed on paper,  which is useless.

Is using Social Media such as Facebook and Twitter the best way to get the Florida Lottery Office to change their data disclosure policy?  I would like everyone out there spending money in the Florida Lottery games to call the office at Tallahassee and request that they make available for download on their website the data for all the games to the degree of detail that matches the PowerBall game website. Any ideas on how we can make the Florida Lottery change it's data disclosure policy will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

    I can understand your reasoning behind this, BUT I do not believe it is law to provide the "test draw" data. Only to have an independent attorney present in such draws.

    As you stated above, the FL Lottery's site does offer the entire draw history of all their games available in PDF/HTML format - Just not the "test" draws.

    Also since PowerBall is a nationwide game, it is most likely PowerBalls decision to make this info available, not any specific state. FL is following the law here.

      I doubt Floriduh would want to self-incriminate themselves...ha ha hha ha aha.

      Once they show how many times they rotate the machines, ball sets, tubes, and the 17 pretests, before a draw, they might as well buy some rope for themselves for the town square public hanging...lol

        Perfect example of the difference between government run and private enterprise.

        Private enterprise is usually responsive to the wants, needs and demands of the consumer.

        Government run? They really don't give a dam what you think.

        And them's the cold hard facts.

          One more thing, last time I checked FL Lottery doesnt have a FB account setup. There was talks about it, but last I checked it was created yet.

          Besides, do you really think a few people squealing about it on Facebook/Twitter will really make them oblige to your request? Isn't gonna happen
