Before you say anything, yes, I've already gone through the steps to find where to do that. However, when I attempted to click on either of the two games to get the menu that offers me to get the results sent to my phone, I clicked on that option and it told me that that page doesn't exist. So, what I need to know is whether they don't offer to send texts with the lottery results anymore or not. Another thing is that I emailed the Lottery Post people about this days ago and have not heard back from them at all. Their acknowledgment email just said that they may not email me back if they think the answer is already in the forum. I've done a search in the forum here, but I didn't find anything that pertained to this situation. That's why I decided to post this question in here.

Thanks, in advance, for any info you can provide me.

    Are you talking about mobile RSS Feeds for Lottery Results ???  I didn't see an option for receiving game results [actual winning numbers by state] under RSS information.  However, I'm not too familiar with how RSS Feed works in the first place.

    PM TODD again.

     

    Update ......

    I think it's the Lottery Results Gadget RSS Feed for Windows 7 [to receive actual winning numbers].  However, most people are using Windows 8.1 or 10 by now, so maybe this little Gadget doesn't work anymore.

      What I've been doing to get the winning numbers is to keep going to the website to check them. I'm interested in the Illinois Lottery winning numbers for both the Powerball and Mega Millions games. Each is played twice a week. I used to get the numbers from this website on those two lottery games sent to my old cell phone. I've got a new phone recently and I want to be able to stop them from sending it to the old phone and start sending it to the new phone. I just don't remember what the 5-digit number combination is to tell this website that I want to subscribe to getting those two games sent to my new phone.

      You were talking about Windows 7, 8.1, or 10. I think you're assuming I meant getting the winning numbers sent to my email address. That's not what I want. I want them sent to my phone.

        If you look at the www.lotterypost.com/results page, and you scroll down to the bottom of the gray area, you'll see a section that reads: 

         

        Lottery Post delivers the highest quality lottery results on the Internet, including:

        • Quickest – You get the winning numbers right after they're announced
        • Most Accurate – We constantly check for corrections made by the lottery
        • Complete – Every game in every country we cover
        • Mobile – Results instantly delivered to your cell phone
        • Versatile – See past results and statistics, and use the most powerful lottery search engine in the industry

         

        In red is where it says they can send you winning number results to your cell phone. That's what I'm trying to get to my new phone. When I follow the instructions to do that, the page that comes up tells me the page doesn't exist. So, how else do I get those numbers sent to my phone? That's what I need to know at this point.

          Security concerns in the email and depending on who their provider and web hosting is that is your answer

            On the Results Page: Click on More: Click on Send Results to Cell Phone!

            Page Not Found Instead of Instructions of what to do next!

              Wander73, I don't know what you're trying to say in your response. Are you saying that Lottery post definitely no longer offers texts sent to people with the winning lottery numbers because of some sort of security concerns via email? Is there some post about this or article that Lotty Post put out a while back that talked about this? Can you please provide me with the link to the page where I can read about that? Thanks.

                      I don't get any text to get the lottery results. I usually get it from my cell phone to get the lottery results to see if there is a jackpot winner.

                      I hope that one $2 ticket is the only one that matches all 5 numbers plus the Powerball to win the largest Powerball Jackpot in United States history of over $2 Billion Dollars!

                        Ressuccess,

                         

                        The thing is that my sister-in-law is the one who plays these games, and she doesn't want to be the one to get results sent to her phone. I don't know if she thinks she just won't know the steps to do it, or whether she just doesn't want a strange website to have her cell phone number. lol  She'd rather have me forward them from my cell phone to hers. So, if I use a lottery app, how do I see the lottery results? Is it in the form of a text, and if not, is there a way to send those results via text to my sister-in-law?
