  1. I can’t get any games to display and therefore can’t select any games. Do I need to wait 6 hours after initial install to get games available?

  2. Is there a way to set it up by page? I want to have state by state pages and display lotto results for that state on each page.  Thanks!

  3. we run a small football club and run a weekly lotto – can this plugin be modifed so that we can input the numbers drawn they could be shown on the frontpage

  4. As of this morning i noticed none of the games are showing up… this occured on multiple domains with different hosts… it just stopped showing up… also in the widget config none of the games show up so they can be selected…

  5. Is there a way to not have the state name appear? I really just want to use the Powerball and Mega Millions numbers, so I don’t want the state name to appear since they apply nationally.

  6. Is this plugin for giveaways? I have promised the readers on my blog http://blivenblogger.dk to do a giveaway, and I’m not sure how to pick the winner, so that the winners will know that this was actually made random.

  7. hey, thanks a lot for the great plugin, but can you check this

  8. This is no longer working… will there be an update soon? … the widget installs fine but when you select the state the section where it lets you pick the games is blank. Using wordpress 3.7.1 various themes same results… hope you can help.
