Three Powerball drawings begin Aug. 23
The Multi-State Lottery Association (MUSL) is a non-profit organization that facilitates lottery drawings across various states. Overall, sales in Powerball took a dip this year. To boost interest and sales, the association wants to increase Powerball drawings to thrice a week.
Currently, drawings take place on Wednesday and Saturday at 11 p.m. EST. However, on Aug. 23, Powerball players can take part in another weekly drawing.
Additionally, states participating in Powerball sales need to offer the third weekly drawing to continue participating in the popular lottery draw game.
