The New Jersey Lottery announced that it will begin airing its live evening game draws on CBS-owned television stations, daily, beginning Jan. 1, 2013 at 7:57 pm. The daily drawing will air on CBS-owned stations including The CW Philly 57(WPSG-TV). Viewers are asked to check their local cable listings for channel numbers. Carole Hedinger, Executive Director of the Lottery says, “Lottery management is always looking for ways to improve the playing experience for its customers. With this in mind, we are excited to bring the live daily evening drawings to television. Recognizing that consumers today access information in a variety of ways, providing a television outlet adds to our already established Internet and mobile broadcast options.” While the evening draw will be aired daily on The CW Philly, the midday draw will remain exclusively as a live-streaming video available on the NJLottery.net website and Facebook. Foster Krupa, Marketing Director for the Lottery added, “Bringing the live Lottery drawing to TV responds to players’ needs and makes the winning numbers selection even more accessible wherever and however they want.”
The live broadcast will feature the winning number drawings for Pick-3, Pick-4, Jersey Cash 5 and Pick-6 Lotto with a recap display of the winning numbers immediately following for easy viewing.
“The Lottery is dedicated to serving all of its customers,” remarked Hedinger, “Many of our playing fans who don’t have computers or Internet access can now tune in to The CW Philly for the live daily drawings.”
The Lottery drawings can be seen in real-time on the Internet and are also archived for future viewing. They can be found using the links available on the NJLottery.net website.
