Mega Millions ticket deadline moving to 10 p.m.
The New York Lottery is announcing a new draw close time for the Mega Millions.
Anyone who buys Mega Millions tickets for drawings held on the same day must buy them by 10 p.m., starting on Tuesday, April 4. That’s 45 minutes earlier than the current time of 10:45 p.m.
This change will allow the New York Lottery more time for closing procedures for each Mega Millions draw.
Mega Millions draws are currently held on Tuesdays and Fridays at 11 p.m.
