I am so happy to finally get this website update out to you all today. Even though much of it was completed a while ago, sometimes you encounter unexpected roadblocks in life, and that was the case for the past several months. Without getting into detail, it's been a bit of a struggle to be able to do the kinds of quick updates that many of you were used to in the past, but it just means I need to get a bit more creative about how I go about updating the site.

Anyway, here it is!

The biggest update today is the addition of a brand-new system, called the Combinations Analysis for Pick 3 and Pick 4. You can read all about it in the news release posted in the News section this morning: https://www.lotterypost.com/news/311392.

I can't tell you what a relief it is to finally get that new system out to you all, because I have definitely heard many cries for help over the past few years for a good combinations tool. My strong advice is to read through all the help documentation that accompanies the new system, because otherwise you may miss out on a useful way of using the tool. There is an Introduction when you first get to the page (beneath the large Pick 3 and Pick 4 selection buttons), and there is more detailed help you can see by clicking the large Help/About selection button. Read it all!

One minor thing I am looking for feedback on in the new Combinations Analysis: In the wizard-style interface (using the Continue/Back buttons to go forward/backward between steps) I purposely move the Continue button further to the left, so it's closer to the Back button. I also highlighted it with a bolder border. Do you like the new location of Continue, or do you prefer the location on the Pairs Analysis, which shows the Continue button on the right side of the page?

Along with the new system, there are a host of other important changes made to Lottery Post, including:

  • Implemented a technique in the Pairs Analysis that was discovered in creating the new Combinations Analysis, which increases performance of the Pairs Analysis ever further.
  • A big push to implementing support for "High DPI" screens and monitors. As screens and monitors continue to get sharper (for example, on phones and tablets, as well as 4K monitors), the graphic images on the website can suffer and become blurry when compared to the razer-sharp text right next to them. So this first attempt at addressing the issue is really just a partial attempt, covering only certain graphics. It is an absolute TON of work to do, because it involves redrawing all the graphics on the website, and also coming up with new ways to program the website to incorporate the high resolution imagery. So if you use a "High DPI" screen or monitor, you may notice some graphics being sharper and other still being a bit blurry. Over time more and more of the graphics will be converted.
  • Implemented a new "Return to Top" button that appears at the lower-right part of every page once you start to scroll down the page. Clicking the button will immediately scroll the page back to the top. That one button replaces the hundreds of "back to top" buttons that were littered across many of the various pages. This new button simplifies the pages by removing the unnecessary clutter.
  • Fixed the spam detection engine to prevent some false positives that were unfairly flagging some content as spam.
  • Added a few more areas where you can recommend certain pages to other people using social media (Facebook, Twitter, Google). I really appreciate the recommendations!
  • Finally removed any and all support for IE6 and IE7. Even though those browsers were officially not supported by Lottery Post for years, some of the code behind the scenes lingered. The removal of all the extra code makes the website more streamlined, and that's always a good thing.
  • Fixed a bunch of minor bugs.
  • IE8 support soon may be getting stripped out as well. IE8 remains the last browser that the website contains special coding to support, and the number of daily IE8 users has really dwindled in the past year. If there is anyone reading this who objects to getting rid of support for that browser, I strongly recommend that you let me know.
  • Eventually all Internet Explorer versions other than the most recent (IE11) may be dropped as well, but that's bit bit further out. Windows Vista only supports up to IE9 (not IE10 or IE11), so while there is still a good sized group of people using that operating system, I can't in good conscience drop support for IE9. Again, people using older Internet Explorer versions are encouraged to let me know what they think.
  • Rounding out the topic of browser support in the Lottery Post website, these are now the officially-supported browser versions. If you're not using at least the minimum supported version of one of the following browsers, Lottery Post may not work very well for you.
    • Microsoft Edge (Good web browser, recommended — but only available on Windows 10.)
    • Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) (Only version 8 and higher. Also, you are advised to only use Internet Explorer on Windows 8 and lower — Windows 10 users should switch to Edge.)
    • Mozilla Firefox (Only version 6 and higher — any version less than 6 will not work.)
    • Google Chrome (Good web browser, recommended.)
    • Apple Safari (Only for Mac or iOS users.)
    • Opera (Good web browser, available on many operating systems — but only use the latest available version after they switched over to the "Blink" engine.)

                    I like to play , midday specific, or evening specific, to save money on chasing both draws.

                    I just did a search, and compared to what I have, your new system gave me the same numbers!

                    So, with this time saving tool, I can look further into vtracs, and root sums.

                      You have a great site.   Not sure about who your hosting is.   However I am not on facebook no more and never will be ever again.  Twitter is okay.   Google I am but google I don't see being a social media thing. 

                       

                      I will check out the tools you have.

                              Thank you Todd. I didn't know what to expect to happen.

                              I hope that one $2 ticket is the only one that matches all 5 numbers plus the PB to win the largest PB jackpot in United States history of over $2 Billion Dollars! I hope that one $2 ticket is the only one that matches all 5 numbers plus the Mega Ball to win the largest Mega Millions jackpot in United States history of over $2 Billion Dollars!
