The Massachusetts Lottery has announced changes in the drawing schedule for its most popular in-state games, later this month.
On Wednesday, the official statement by the Mass Lottery said that it is shifting the timings to make it convenient for players to watch drawings live and see the results of their favorite lottery games in a consolidated format.
Starting June 15, Massachusetts Lottery players can tune in to the live drawings at the below listed new times:
Numbers Game - Midday (daily): 2:00 p.m.
Numbers Game - Evening (daily): 9:00 p.m.
Mass Cash (Daily): 9:00 p.m.
Megabucks Doubler (Wed & Sat): 9:00 p.m.
Originally the Evening draws took place between 7:45 p.m. and 10:50 p.m., whereas the Midday Numbers Game drawing usually occurred at 12:45 p.m. The time in between the Midday and Evening Numbers Game drawings will remain seven hours by moving the Midday draw to 2:00 p.m.
The Lottery says, that scheduling all the evening draws at the same time will allow the players to see the lottery results all at once by watching a single video presentation.
The Lottery Interim Executive Director Mark William Bracken said that "We are excited to present our evening drawings at times that are more accessible for many of our customers," "also enhancing the visual presentation of our drawings and moving the draw times will give customers the opportunity to experience the excitement of watching these drawings live."
Players can also view winning numbers on the Massachusetts Lottery's Facebook page and YouTube channel.
Though the draw times for Lucky For Life, Powerball, and Mega Millions do remain the same.
