For most games, the draw results are updated approx. 30 minutes to 3 hours after the draw. For Powerball and Mega Millions, the draw results may be available as early as 15 minutes after the draw.
In case there is a delayed update to the draw results due to exceptional conditions, we will be alerted typically on the next day when the draw results for any game is not updated on the day of the draw. We will then manually enter the results usually within 6-24 hours after the draw. Users of our lottery software will also inform us when the draw results are not updated.
Due to the unpredictable nature of the Internet, you may poll for the draw results every 5 minutes, 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 1 hour, 2 hour or X hour, depending on how soon would you like to have the draw results.
Each time you poll and call our API, it is considered as 1 API request, regardless of whether the latest draw results are available or not.
For example, if you poll every hour for the draw results of a daily game, you will require approximately 720 API requests (24 x 30 = 720) per month.
Jackpots are usually available, earliest around 2-4 hours after the draw while the jackpot information for some games may be available only around 12-24 hours after the draw. You can poll every 1 hour, 2 hours, 3 hours or X hours to check for the next jackpot amount. If you check for the jackpot every 2 hours, you will need around 360 API requests (12 x 30 = 360) each month.
In short, it’s a trade-off between how quickly would you like to have the draw results (the frequency of your polling) vs the cost of the APIs. You can thus decide on the API plan to subscribe to.
For each game, you should call the API at least twice a day after each draw to retrieve the updated recommended lottery numbers.
For example, Powerball is played every Wednesday and Saturday. You can call the API around 0600-1000 (Eastern time) and 1800-2200 (Eastern time) on Thursday and Sunday. If so, you will require approximately 16 API requests (2 x 8 = 16) each month, assuming there are 4 weeks in the month.
