Lotto America Live Drawing

Can I watch live? At this time, television broadcasts of the draws do not exist, as a live feed is not made available by MUSL. The video animation above, however, shows the numbers in the order that they were drawn, the same way that you would expect if you were watching them appear on-screen as a TV viewer. Once all the numbers appear in the video, they are then sorted into ascending order.

Did you know? You can use the automatic ticket checker to see if you’ve won a Lotto America prize without viewing the stream above. Prizes start from matching just the Star Ball number.

The drawing itself takes place using a random number generator (RNG) developed by Smartplay International. It is a similar digital draw system to many other lotteries around the world. Mechanical draw machines had previously been used for Lotto America until April 2023.
