DORCHESTER, MA – The Massachusetts State Lottery is moving the times for all of its in-state drawings, making it more convenient for players to watch drawings live and see the results of their favorite games in a consolidated format.
The new schedule of drawings, which begins Wednesday, June 15, is as follows:
Midday Numbers Game (daily) 2 p.m.
Evening Numbers Game (daily) 9 p.m.
Mass Cash (daily) 9 p.m.
Megabucks Doubler (Wed & Sat) 9 p.m.
The three evening drawings have traditionally been conducted at different times, ranging from 7:45 to 10:50 p.m. By moving the Midday Numbers Game drawing game from 12:45 to 2 p.m., the time between the Midday and Evening Numbers Game drawings will remain seven hours.
“We are excited to present our evening drawings at times that are more accessible for many of our customers,” said Mark William Bracken, Interim Executive Director of the Mass Lottery. “We have devoted considerable effort to enhancing the visual presentation of our drawings and moving the draw times will give more customers the opportunity to experience the excitement of watching these drawings live.”
All in-state drawings are streamed live on Facebook Live and YouTube. Presenting all evening drawings at the same time will allow players to get these results all at one time, by watching one video presentation.
Shortly after the evening drawings are conducted, pools will open for the next available drawings for each game.
Draw times for Lucky for Life, Mega Millions and Powerball will remain the same.
