Drawings are commonly cancelled on Christmas. Some states used to not conduct drawings on Thanksgiving, New Year, or Good Friday either. But based on what I have observed so far, no state (excluding Puerto Rico) has ever cancelled drawings on Independence Day. With the possible exception of Connecticut, Kansas, Kentucky, and Rhode Island, for which I do not have the complete drawing histories, drawings have been conducted by every state every year in the history of the game on the 4th of July.
* The reason why I exclude Puerto Rico is because their lottery is somewhat of an anomaly. They still do not conduct drawings on New Year, Epiphany (6 Jan.), Good Friday, Constitution Day (25 July), Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Puerto Rico does not draw on 4 July. However, they do conduct drawings on Ash Wednesday.
Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.
In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!
