Starting Sunday, June 14, 2020, the Wisconsin Lottery added a second daily drawing to three of its Lotto games—Pick 3, Pick 4, and All or Nothing. While the games and how to play them stay the same, players will now have the chance to play the games twice a day.
The two daily draws are called Midday and Evening. For all three games, the Midday draw takes place at 1:30 p.m. and the Evening draw takes place at 9:00 p.m. This does mean the current 6:15 p.m. draw time for Pick 3 and Pick 4 will change to 9:00 p.m. starting Sunday, June 14.
“The Wisconsin Lottery is thrilled to offer our players another chance to play,” says Wisconsin Lottery Director Cindy Polzin. “Players and retailers have been asking for additional daily draws that are offered by other lotteries throughout the country. We think our loyal Pick 3, Pick 4, and All or Nothing players will enjoy another opportunity to play the same great games with the same great prizes.”
Summary of changes for players starting Sunday, June 14, 2020:
• Pick 3, Pick 4, and All or Nothing players can choose to play Midday, Evening, or Both draws each day. Players can still simply ask the clerk for quick pick numbers, but need to choose Midday, Evening, or Both draws. Tickets will clearly state which draw(s) they are eligible for.
• Pick 3, Pick 4, and All or Nothing playslips are changing. Old playslips will not work after Saturday, June 13.
• The current 6:15 p.m. draw time for Pick 3 and Pick 4 will change to 9:00 p.m.
• Players may purchase up to 14 draws (7 days) in advance if choosing both Midday and Evening draws. Or, players may purchase up to 7 draws (7 days) in advance if choosing only Midday draws or only Evening draws.
Starting June 14, 2020, drawings are held every day after 1:30 p.m. for Midday draws and after 9:00 p.m. for Evening draws. Tickets must be purchased before 1:30 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. to be included in that day’s Midday or Evening drawing.
