Televised Drawings Format Change-Up

On October 1, 2012, the Lottery’s televised midday and evening drawings transitioned away from our long-practiced approach of having live drawing talent and TV hosts announce each day’s drawings. The Daily 3&4 drawings now feature an off-camera announcer reading the winning numbers as they are being drawn.  The Daily 3&4 drawings continue to air live with the same ball machines that have been in use for many years, and Fantasy 5 and Classic Lotto 47 winning numbers are still being displayed, as usual.
