The Virginia Lottery now is streaming its drawings live on its Facebook page, in addition to its Web site.

In order to view the live video stream on the Virginia Lottery Facebook page, visitors must first click the "Like" option on the page, according to a lottery news release.

The live streams began on Sept. 14, and can be viewed daily at 1:59 and 11:00 p.m.

Viewers can watch the Pick 3, Pick 4, and Cash 5 drawings, and also can watch the Mega Millions drawings on Tuesday and Friday nights. Powerball and Win for Life can be viewed on Wednesday and Saturday nights and the Decades for Dollars can be seen on Monday and Thursday nights.

The drawings can be accessed by clicking the "View Draw Show LIVE!" tab on the Virginia Lottery's Facebook page.

Past drawing videos are available on the Virginia Lottery's Web site.

Whats wrong with using good ol' USAMega? They seem to update it faster than the NJ Lottery website I used to go to. Plus since I got an office job, I've had to shut my Facebook account due to people tagging me in embarassing photos that might jeopardize my job. Good luck on tonight's MegaMillions everybody!

While the value of a dollar is substantial, hope is priceless. But if you ain't got a dollar, then it's hopeless.

    I think streaming it's drawings live on Facebook is a great idea for Virginia.

    However, when states make these announcements, I feel they should include proper caveats and full disclosure.

    They should disclose, for instance, that these features will not be made available to poor white trash hillbillies like myself in the backwoods and hills and hollers of the Appalachians because they are not considered worthy of the expense incurred to run hi-speed cable to their hovels, huts, shacks and shanties.

    Now, some of us are very excitable and these announcements made without the proper cautionary disclaimers can cause undue stress and a serious wasting of ammunition brought about by the celebratory firing of squirrel guns into the air unnecessarily and damage to front porch floorboards by irrationally exuberant clog dancing.

    I hope at some point they will take this into consideration.

              Awesome!!  But I don't think midday draws are on TV, because they're computerized.

                  Thanks Louise but I ain't familiar with lookin at the pictures on the television set.

                  But if the X Factor has something to do with tic tac toe - I ain't no good at that no how.

                      It 's for people like yourself with talent. Maybe you can make the holling sound for pigs, birds and the X- Factor will be your sense of humor.Jester Laugh

                          Oh ok, if it's a show about holling sounds, I'd probably win it then.

                          I can make holling sounds from critters that ain't even been invented.

                          I can do Sasquatch too.

                          Some of them require the use of certain bodily functions and they're included in my repertoire

                          I do one I call The Swamp Monster that requires loud moaning in conjunction with a bodily function but my wife gets mad if I don't open the windows and put the fan on when I do that one.
