RHODE ISLAND LOTTERY ADDS A MIDDAY DRAWING TO THE NUMBERS GAME

May 7, 2014

RHODE ISLAND LOTTERY ADDS A MIDDAY DRAWING TO THE NUMBERS GAME

The Numbers Game, which launched in 1976, was the first Rhode Island Lottery game that allowed players to select their own numbers for a drawing. Starting on Sunday, May 11, Rhode Island Lottery players will be able to play their favorite Numbers twice a day, with a new Midday Drawing added to the game.

The Midday Drawings will take place at 1:30 p.m. every day with drawing videos posted to www.rilot.com and the Rhode Island Lottery's YouTube channel.  The Evening Drawings will continue to be televised live on WPRI-12 at 6:59 p.m. Monday – Saturday and at 6:29 p.m. on Sundays. Winning numbers for all Rhode Island Lottery games can be found on www.rilot.com.

The Numbers Game offers a variety of ways to win with wagers ranging from $.50 to $5. Tickets can be purchased every day up until 1:20 p.m. for the Midday Drawings, up to 6:50 p.m. for the Evening Drawings Monday – Saturday, and up to 6:20 p.m. for the Evening Drawing on Sunday.

The first Rhode Island Lottery ticket, "The Lot" was sold in 1974 for $.50.  Although hundreds of different games have been offered over the past forty years, a $.50 ticket is still available with The Numbers Game. Since 1974, Rhode Island Lottery has generated more than $5.3 billion in revenue and paid out more than $26 billion in prizes.
