I've added one of the upcoming Platinum Member features in a limited version so that the membership can try it out.

The feature adds the ability to search through the prior results for any game that uses numbers.  (A few games, like California Daily Derby, don't use numbers, so they can't be searched.)

This feature, which I complete a few weeks ago, is very complex with some really neat features.  It was very difficult to program!

One of the coolest things about the Search feature is something I have never seen on any other lottery sites.  (Maybe it exists, but I haven't seen it.)  That is the ability to search across all states.  For example, I can search across all states to see where 1-2-3 hit straight for any Pick 3 game!

You will have different search options depending on which game you're searching, so be sure to try them all out.

To use the search, just click any game's popup menu, and select Search Results.

Then, to search any other game (or all states), click Start New Search in the upper-right corner.

Important: The limited part for Standard members (everyone at this point) is that you will only be able to search for the month of April, 2004.  If you become a Platinum member, all of the time periods listed become activated.

I may also add a Search Results option to the left menu to go directly to the main search page, but I'm thinking of waiting until the new memberships are available before activating it.  Do you think I should wait?

Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

    Todd -  I just got through playing with the new search feature... Very well thought out and easy to use...

    This is really a nice tool to use for past history searching - Very nice job!!

     

     

    Good Luck Lep

      Wow
      that is a great search tool. I was playing with it too and I see you can enter one digit or you can enter just one pair to find results. really great for players to do research.

      great job

                Thanks for the positive feedback.  (And Rick G, thanks for posting the instructions.)

                John, I was looking for a way to be able to do stuff like searching for pairs, single numbers, positional searches, etc.  With the Pick 3 searches, you can do position searches on pairs and single numbers by entering the number(s) in the position(s), and select just a straight hit.  (I wan't sure if you caught that ability.)

                  Ok i did that and all i see is the past 10 game results for my state for which ever game i click on. But there is no search feature that i can see to enter numbers to search.

                      this is all i see when i put the cursor on the dawing results then when i click on it i see the past ten results of whatever game i choose. there is no other box to enter numbers to search no place on the page that says enter numbers to search.

                      Big John says. You don't hit the number. The number hits you!!!!

                          Maybe I need to log off the site and log back on or windows 98 doesn't recognize the new feature. I will keep trying. Usually I have no problems finding things. In fact I usually find things by accident I didn't know was there. So I'll get back to you after I chill out a bit. Sorry if it seems like I'm stupid. I know enough about computers to navigate almost any site. Been fooling around with pc's for about 15yrs. I don't see the pull down menu you posted when I click on the menu anywhere on the page. I only see the one I posted. Thanks for all your help I know I'll figure this out soon. And report back.

                            Hey four4me,

                            I was only getting the top 10 results too. I logged off and  back in and that didn't help so I dumped temp Internet files and dumped my accelerator files too. It finally showed up. That may help you out.

                            Good Luck,

                            Bryan  :)

                            BTW Todd, very cool feature. I was actually looking for a way to do this a couple of days ago. It will come in very handy.

                            I really haven't had the time to browse the forum much lately so you may have already put this in another post but have you hinted at what the prices are going to be for the different membership packages yet?

                              Well, I did that and cleared my cache, cookies and history files and logged off and on twice re booted no show no go on this end I still get the last ten results. Maybe it will kick in after 12 PM tonight I had a similar problem before and was able to work through it. At this point I have no clue as to what or why I don't see a search feature. I'm not giving up just yet. But gonna take a break. Will try again later. Must be some kind of protocol malfunction.
