Step Down

Step Down Notice

In the event the state Legislature fails to adopt a state operating budget by June 30, 2017, state departments will be required to suspend operations. At this time, the Lottery is preparing for a possible, temporary suspension of operations. 

What does this mean? The Lottery will need to start reducing the number of Advance Play and Multiple Drawings for each of our games.  Since we offer consumers the chance to buy tickets for future draws, the Lottery cannot allow tickets to be purchased for ANY draw that will happen after June 30, 2017.

Thank you in advance for your understanding. We will keep you informed as additional information is available.
