first powerball drawing in 5/53 + 1/42 format date?

Hi,
Does anyone happen to know the exact drawing date when the multistate powerball
http://www.musl.com/powerball/
switched to it's current format of 5/53 (it was 5/49)?
Their FAQ doesn't help, I can't rely on the first appearence of a number higher than 49, 50-51-52 and 52 may have been skipped for the first few drawings...

Thanks :)

I wonder how I missed it there?
Their site has a few inaccuracies, for instance the FAQ still clams it is a 1/49 + 1/42 game, and they give the wrong drawing machine info there also. (they currently use SmartPlay Halogen machines)

That's why I'd email to get the straight goods :agree:
