Just ribbin' him RJ.  LOL   Heaven forbid we ever talk about politics on this site!   No No    Patriot

I get your point, but in all seriousness, it's difficult to talk politics on this site -- or most other places on the Internet -- because too many people insist upon bringing partisanship into every conversation.  When participants stick to the issues, though, that tends to result in fruitful, informative discussions.

    If I answer on that one, RDGR will be channeling Adolf Hitler again, adding some US propaganda on the top! US Flag

    When a site sucks, it sucks! I don't think that they miss cash to creat a decent website with new technology.

    Hey, I want a Belgian flag as smiley gimmick!

      Gauffre Bruxelloise avec fraises et Chantilly or Gauffre Liègeoise?

      There are also the flat soft ones with filling and the hard thin ones.

      ... What?

          That's because the Leftist ALWAYS reserve the right to DEFINE TERMS to their liking such as "tends to result in fruitful, informative discussion"  meaning the transformation of our capitalist society into a Socialist/Communist society.................  (aka Progress)

          My DEFINITION of a deceitful liar is someone uses words with altered meanings.

             .....................YES I SAID DECEITFUL LIAR........................

          The leftists on this site have a whole shopping cart of such words they use frequently without challenge. Anyone who wants to start dismantling the list, just let me know.

          Just start with the word: Progress, Progression, Progressive.

            The funny part about your "informative discussions" is that if you leftists would just be HONEST and come right out and say "I believe we would be better off as a Socialist nation" we could actually have "fruitful discussion"............

            But, OH YEAH THATS RIGHT.... you cant do that because 90% of the American public would DISAGREE.

            LIAR, LIAR, PANTS ON FIRE, NOSE IS LONGER THAN A TELEPHONE WIRE.

              yes the issue here is downloadable files...and sticking to that point...

              as soverigen states....each state would have to pass their own laws regarding internet distribution of lottery data...

              when the new nationwide game is released maybe we would have a better website for that game....

              generally i dont think "official websites"  want you to win...they just want to use the site as marketing...

              for instance the old ny york website went back to 2001....in data now it only goes back to 2008...so data is stifled...which is good for lottery business...

              the more losers the more money for the state...

              take virginia for example...they have the best pick 5 in the nation....but their website makes it terribly difficult to export data as each drawing result is displayed upside down and backwards at the same time.... i guess its their way of making sure they dont get beat by really smart people...

              i still haven't figured a way to get out the data...

              besides you can have all the downloadable files you want...but if you are a sucky gambler...its not gonna help much....

                Thank you, RJOh, but I prefer not to install that software or pay any fee.
                There should be a law that makes the lotteries publish the drawing results in a .txt file, or a .csv file. Roll Eyes

                It looks like you are not really serious about solving your problem....Roll Eyes

                In the new economy it will be all about lawyers and lotto...

                  You make some excellent points.  And I'm not certain that the various lotteries should make it a priority to provide this data in easily-downloadable forms.  If an individual lottery wants to do so, that's fine, but I don't see why it should be required.

                  Besides, the data one seeks can be found if one looks hard enough.  It may not be in TXT or CSV format, but it's out there.  Todd has resources, both free and behind paywalls, and there are other lottery websites as well.

                    You can download a trial copy of Lotto Pro which has updated files of all Canadian and US lotteries.   This can only be done once since it only allows a free 15 day trial period once.  If you want future updates, you'll have to buy the software.

                    LotSoftPro is freeware, since some time now.

                    Just download, install, and run Live Update to have the draws updated.

                      I cannot understand that the American lotteries don't offer downloadable files.
                      You have Microsoft and Apple based there. You should have the best stuff there.
                      In little crappy Belgium we get it all, online play, all files full history in CSV,
                      lotto drawings with movie, payouts in files, full key wheels playable by clicking,
                      full wheels, a ten wheel for 10 EUR which is not broken into combinations, quick picks ... .

                      Shame on you!

                      Well,


                      in "crappy" Belgium i had to send about a dozen emails a few years ago to Belgian lotto site, to explain them how they should put up the files for download, because the dates and data were all messed up.

                      By the way, if you play Belgian Lotto or pick3, i advice you to go pay a visit to a brain doctor... Cheers

                          I am looking for a site to download history of drawings for Ontario Canada Keno.
                          Other general links are welcome too.


                          The local lottery is offering all drawings and payoutus in .csv.

                          Thank you for helping!

                          HI SergeM.

                          Simply, go OLG.ca and click in Keno.

                           

                          Have good day.Smile
