The UK National Lottery Logo
NOTE: Some idiot lottery spammers have used a link to this page in their
scam e-mails causing me to get SpamCop notifications - stop it, you morons!
The logo at the top of each page is currently a temporary one. Unfortunately,
Camelot have refused to give permission for me to use their logo, so expect
something better (not difficult !) shortly. For the moment, I'm changing the
logo colours each day automatically, to add a bit of "variety".
Some further notes about these pages:
- Camelot Group plc have no responsibility or liability for these
unofficial UK National Lottery WWW pages, which are solely
maintained by Richard K. Lloyd. It does, however, contain
certain information used with the kind permission of Camelot Group plc
(excluding the logo :-) ). There is also a further
site disclaimer for those legal folks (yes, those
ones employed by Camelot, as if you couldn't guess) who didn't click
on the logo to get this page.
- I have spent a considerable time collating the data presented on these
pages and writing various programs to analyse it, so if you wish to
redistribute the information for free, please e-mail me that you intend to do so and
also insert a reference (e.g. a link or whatever) to this set of pages:
Please note that commercial sites using my data must contact me
first before using my data or linking to my site. It may be that I either refuse permission
for you to commercially use the data or don't want you linking to my site
(it's more likely to be both to be honest if your site is not reputable).
For example (and this happened in
uk.media), wholesale posting of the complete set of
winning numbers and various
numerical analysis pages extracted
from this area to a Usenet newsgroup without crediting the origin of the
information was pretty poor netiquette, IMHO.
Considering that ITV teletext want me to pay for a contract to be
drawn up that gives me permission to extract 8 numbers (the winning numbers
and the jackpot prize pool) from their page 123, it was supremely ironic that
on the 5th and 6th January 1996, ITV teletext page 321 took information off
my pages ("Internet analysis" is how they put it) without crediting me by name
or URL [which is the only condition I impose for re-distribution of the info].
I think the words "jump", "a", "running" and "take", suitably re-arranged,
express how I feel about ITV teletext at the moment...
- I have tried to be as "lynx-friendly" as possible (it's a text-only WWW
browser), although I would strongly recommend upgrading to lynx 2.8.X.
All Web browsers should be able to get a decent rendition of these pages -
if anyone has any problems with their Web browser when viewing this
site, please contact me and I'll try to sort it out.
- Although I preview pages in
they should look OK in virtually all browsers.
- All pages are regularly run through "weblint", "spell -b" (or "ispell -l"
with a British English dictionary) and a custom internal link checker I've
written. The C code is also often re-compiled with "gcc -Wall" and run through
