National Lotteries on the TV
Television is often the best way for national lotteries around the world to show that their lottery draws are completely fair and at the same time make the latest lottery results available to the general public.
The UK National Lottery game Lotto has two draws each week on Wednesday and Saturday. Both are broadcast live on BBC One (www.bbc.co.uk). The UK National Lottery is one of the few lotteries in the world with its own television studio, and works with two of the biggest names in British television broadcasting: Endemol UK and Arqiva.
The Irish Lottery draw takes place every Wednesday and Saturday, and both draws are broadcast live to the nation on RTE.
This multi-national EuroMillions lottery attracts participants from no less than nine countries. The draw takes place every Tuesday and Friday and live draws, when televised, tend to be broadcast by the companies that broadcast each nation’s own national lottery. For example, in the United Kingdom the Euromillions lottery is handled by Camelot.
New Zealand Lotto
The New Zealand Lotto takes place every Saturday evening at 8pm and is broadcast live on TV2 (http://tvnz.co.nz).
Lottery games in Australia are broadcast on Channel NSW, which is a digital television channel for New South Wales Government and public information. A programme called Allballs premieres every evening at 6:55pm and 9:55pm, and provides live draw results as well as information on scratchcards and other related lottery games.
Ukrainian National Lottery
The Ukrainian National Lottery has a draw every Wednesday and Saturday. Both draws are broadcast on the UT-1 television channel at 22:50.
The Belgian Lotto draws, which take place every Wednesday and Saturday, can be watched on La Une channel at 8pm.
