Lottery Changing Drawing Times In November

The New York Lottery has announced a new schedule for live drawings produced from its studios in Schenectady.

Effective on Nov. 2, the New York Lottery games with new draw times include New York’s Daily NUMBERS, Win4, Take 5 and LOTTO.

“We are always looking for ways to provide convenience and accessibility for our players,” said Lottery Director Gweneth Dean. “The new draw times will help our retailers and players alike by moving drawings into time slots that better align with their daily routines.”

The new times are for these drawings:

• Midday Daily Numbers, Midday Win4 at 2:30 p.m.

• Evening Daily Numbers, Evening Win4 and Take 5 — 10:30 p.m.

• LOTTO — on Wednesday and Saturday at 8:15 p.m.

The new schedule provides more time for players to purchase tickets for the popular Midday and Evening NUMBERS and Win4 drawings. The new timetable will also mean the Take 5 and LOTTO drawings will air during prime time.
