“Last scrape” is the date that our code last scraped the data from that state lottery's website.
In other words, this is the last date we gathered data and refreshed our database for our analysis into our reports. This information is most easily found on our Free Report pages.
Why is this important? Having the most up-to-date information from your state's lottery website means our analysis is as accurate as it possibly can be! We work extremely hard to ensure that our data is properly and accurately gathered every day and put into our data base for processing.
Our programs run nightly, and we verify that everything is gathered and double-checked before we compile our reports for our members every Friday. We put a lot of data validation and processes together to ensure we're providing you the most up-to-date analysis possible!
