The NY Lottery Website only provides data for their top 2 prizes.
In order to get better data for NY, we have to submit a Freedom of Information Request to the NY Lottery. We submit a request every month for a full liability report which shows ALL PRIZE Levels claimed.
Sometimes, the NY Lottery is VERY VERY SLOW to complete these requests.
When we receive the data back from these requests, we process it immediately. Even though we submit a request every month, the NY Lottery isn’t always responsive to our requests in a timely manner. So there may not be a lot of movement until we get our next report from our Requests.
We do, however, gather the data they publish on their website on a daily basis, but with only the top 2 prizes being updated regularly, we need a top prize to be claimed for any change to really impact our reports in between Freedom Of Information Requests being updated.
PLEASE watch the video and scroll down below the video to read about how we analyze and treat NY specifically in our reports.
I’d like to say that you should see a lot of movement in NY games on a weekly basis. Unfortunately, until NY State publishes more data on their website on a daily basis, we’re at their mercy for when they provide us our Freedom of Information Requests. As soon as they give us the data, we turn it around and provide it to you.
Is this as good as other states? No. Is it better than any other analysis out there for NY Lottery games? We can state with 100% confidence – YES it is!
