When we launched our site in 2006, we never imagined the difficulties we would face, nor the amount of time it would require. Like many others, we simply thought that when we launched, it would be an instant success. We aimed our focus at various forums and asked participants to visit us. However, we were quickly dismissed by many who noted that our site didn't even appear in a Google search.
Since then, we have learned to respect the hard work of others and ceased promoting our website within other lottery sites. Instead, we advertised a bit and remained focused on building a comprehensive set of analytical tools to help the general lottery playing population.
Now, five years later, we can boast of a registered membership that exceeds 3,400 players. And, during the past year, we've had over 50 Major Winners: (see our Lottery Power Picks Winners page). The largest prizes that members won were during 2010 to 2011 were:
- $10,000 Mega Millions ( Oct 12 2010 )
- C$5,373.70 Lotto Max ( Jan 14 2011 )
- C$1,187.40 Lotto 649 ( Mar 19 2011 )
- $500 Hot Lotto ( Oct 23 2010 )
While this type of work does not appear not to relate to lotteries, its information has helped us to formulate future analytic solutions for us to address.
This year we have concentrated on adding new functionality and analysis. For example, we have added a new navigation bar at the top of most pages for your use in locating our information. In addition, we have written a variety of full wheel calculators that lets you compare your expenditures versus you potential winnings. Our Pick 3 pages have gained momentum this past year, particularly after we added a number of other states. Of course, we have had to revise our previously released pages whenever a lottery modified their game format (Thunderball, Mega Million, and Euro Millions).
A subset of articles and pages we published this past year are listed below for your reference.
