Now...which of the above links/programs does give random numbers that SIMULATE the most popular lotto...LOL?!
If you think of the lottery itself as a random number generator, it doesn't do a very good job of simulating itself, in short earlier draws do not predict later draws with the exception of some very small Pick-5 games with hundreds of draws.
Even if you broke into the lottery offices and ran the machine all night, you wouldn't have the future winning numbers, at least I doubt it. Two rng's on a roughly parallel path are not likely to predict each other.
If you're looking for free rng's intended for lottery try http://www.lotto-logix.com/wheellinks.html
there are several near the bottom of the page.
