    I have serious doubts about the quality of many lottery websites.

    So what?  Do you think anyone cares?

        The Missouri lottery has an excellent website, including a list of things to do if you win a big jackpot on their FAQ page.

        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

        Lep

        There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

            You should quit your condescending attitude towards America.

            We're the only reason you aren't goose-stepping to Wagner right now.

            And we're the only reason Russian tanks aren't sitting in every intersection in Brussels.

            Weak, defenseless, useless nations like Belgium should show a little respect for the only people on Earth who virtually guarantee your freedom.

            If you don't like American websites, go to the Belgian websites, why are you here?

              Do you?

              All I want are the latest drawing results on the first page and a link to its archives of previous drawings and I'm satisfied.  Some websites are slow but I usual use a dial-up connection so I can't complain.  I keep an updated data file for the games I play so I can do all my own research off line and only use the archives when I need to confirm my data.

                  It is the other way round, butch2030 was investigating the Belgian lottery and thought doing the Belgian nation a favour by running his quad-sorting program on the Belgian lotto results. Therefore he used an American site US Flag and came up with drawings that are not correct, as the game is now 6+1/45 and not 6+1/42. The payout distribution also changed. Very nice of Butch US Flag, but his input is wrong, he got the wrong data.
                  I also heard of mistakes in advantage plus, and by comparison with a friend in Houston US Flag we found out that Gail Howards US Flag program also loaded an incorrect input file.

                  I mainly have no big complaints about websites, unless they make it too difficult to download the results and payouts.

                  For the local website in Belgium, I complained in the past for not publishing certain dates, when they switched the games. They did it now. They have a public relation by Facebook (American network site US Flag).

                  I understand that you are an old veteran who fought bavely in World War II! US Flag

                  We are lucky to have a nice site like the lotterypost US Flag, which of course is American US Flag.

                  I am also thankful for Bill Gates US Flag, for creating Windows 7 and Excel 2010 with VBE built in.

                  Oh, yeah, the mean Russians didn't get far. There was an air bridge, and Americans dropped chocolates over Berlin West US Flag.

                  I am only exchanging ideas here, as I stated before, I am not selling my programs and not posting links, not even of American US Flag websites other than lotterypost.

                    I agree, and archives should be ordered and correct.

                      Yeah, you say you're only exchanging ideas here but your ideas are frequently anti-American.

                      Last time you said America wouldn't be broke if we didn't spend so much on our military and being in Iraq and such.

                      Maybe if Europeans weren't such soft, pussified, limp-wristed, liberal, girly-man pansies, they would have a strong military to defend themselves and we wouldn't have to come save their bacon when some nutjob like Hitler starts stomping your asses into the ground again. Who else is gonna do it, you? 

                      And no, I wasn't in WWII but my father was a gunner on a Bomber over there and got his ass shot up saving your typical, ungrateful, liberal asses.

                            As far that I remember Saddam was hired by the USA, so was Osama Bin Laden. In fact all that mujahedin stuff comes from that. For Iran, I don't exactly remember how things went when Ayatolla Komeini took over the business. The shah went to Paris. I don't know why Ronald Reagan visited graves where nazi soldiers were burried. Hitler had only one ball, did you expect him to win like that? In addition was a vegetarian. Yeah, Europeans are pussies and cowards. Once in a while a few of us get shot by some extremist muslim, and here or there a car might burn or a bomb might explode. We also get drugs here and there are immigrants. There also gay people here and alcoholics! Our fuel is very expensive too.

                            I know how you tick.

                              By the end of the airlift, around 25 plane crews had dropped 23 tons of chocolate, chewing gum, and other candies over various places in Berlin.
