I'm trying to compile a list of all known lottery winning numbers in the U.S. Anyone know where to go, state by state, to grab databases of these numbers and the dates they won on?

Also includes Puerto Rico, Canada and UK lotteries. Only disadvantage to this site is it will only pull 30 days' worth of lotto at a time. It's free.

Almost too obvious to say, but, unless someone's cheating the lottery system somewhere, and doing it in a really stupid way, the distribution ought to be pretty random and there won't be anything useful to be gained from looking at it.

What are you hoping to get from this information?
