      this is good news, but i have to wonder if there is any connection to  the changes happening to NJN ? where the live draws were broadcast.

        I have been writing about this for years, saying that it's the answer for a lottery that wants to keep real drawings, save money, and still provide live drawings to the public.  I am so happy to see that my home state is taking the lead.  It is absolutely the way to go.  In my opinion it is much better than even broadcasting it on TV, because the Internet is available everywhere these days, not just on a TV box that can receive certain channels.

        Nice job NJ Lottery! Thumbs Up

        Congrats Todd.

          All lottery states will adopt this. The bandwagon has rolled out.

                  if you have to sign up for facebook to see this, i say thumbs down. social networking has peaked like reality tv shows. just slap the numbers up on the late news which everyone watches or check it on a nj lottery website later...

                      No, Virginia does not show live streams.  They show mp4 files or something, which means they are archived ("taped").  As the article says, a live stream is shown to you right as it is happening, not 5 minutes later or an hour later -- LIVE.

                        The Texas Lottery web site has been showing live drawings for some time now.  It shows at the draw times of 12:27 pm and 10:12 pm.  They even show a countdown for a few minutes before the draw.  At any other time, the page will show a recording of the last draw and a menu to view previous draws, but during the draws and for a few minutes before, they show a stream, a coundown followed by the draw.  The video page informs the viewer of the "Live Webcast" at the draw times.  The site also gives satellite coordinates to watch the draw that way.  I don't have a satellite so I've never seen that, but I'd assume the online stream is the same as the satellite transmission.  Sometimes during the countdown you can hear people talking, presumably in the draw studio.

                        I wasn't aware that other lotteries didn't have live streams.  It's good that it's spreading.

                            Tennessee will not.  We still paint the winning numbers on the rumps of mules and then turn the animals loose on I-40.
