The event will coincide with the launch of New Jersey Lottery’s new website,

"This is an exciting time for New Jersey Lottery players, retailers and staff," said New Jersey Lottery Executive Director Carole Hedinger, in a press release. "Live streaming our draw online at and Facebook will allow for players to interact with us and each other, making the draw a more dynamic experience." has been designed to offer visitors a more interactive and engaging experience with the site as well as with the other retailers and players hoping to win some cash and who buy and sell lottery games. While the live draw is a great incentive, will also provide an array of content related to winning tickets, games, lottery retailers and more.

"Advancements in technology and media now make it possible for us to capture and broadcast our live draws as part of a larger-scale initiative at minimal expense," said Hedinger. "There's a great deal more to be seen and heard from New Jersey Lottery than winning numbers -- and soon!"
