It depends upon your lottery, in CA they use the same machines for the draws so everything can be considered one big game with two draws per day.
"The California Lottery has purchased three separate Automated Draw Machines, two are used for the daily draws and the third one is used as an off-site backup in the event of an emergency. Each day before the draw, a manual capsule draw is conducted to determine which draw device will be used - A or B. Another manual capsule draw is conducted to determine which randomization method is used, one being a mathematical algorithm and the other being a Random Number Generator. The numbers selected from either method are unpredictable and selected in an unbiased manner."
So, if you are looking for a pattern or trying to find something, bear in mind that there are two machines picked at random and two software programs picked at random.
That means that even though midday and evening can be considered the same game, during that game there are four variables to account for when picking numbers and patterns.
