Before the drawing the lottery has to make sure all ticket sales are stopped. Each
terminal has to reply to the main server that it has shut down. If you think about
how many thousands of terminals it's a wonder that they are not shut down even
longer before the drawing. It's kind of like waiting for your check once you win, the
lottery has to receive all the money from all the sales before they pay the winner. All
in all I think it's exceptional that they manage it so quickly.
