Lotto drawings moved back 3 hours

September 12, 1996

Maryland Lottery officials have changed the twice-weekly drawing of the lotto game to 11: 07 p.m. Wednesdays and Saturdays as part of an effort to improve sales.

The change from the 7: 55 p.m. drawing time began last night. Lottery spokesman Carroll H. Hynson Jr. said the move gives players three more hours to buy tickets. It also approximately coincides with the 11 p.m. drawing time on Fridays for winning numbers in the Big Game, a new multistate lottery that Maryland is part of.
