Beginning today, Virginia Lottery drawings will move to the Internet.
The daily draw shows and twice-a-week Win For Life drawings that were held on TV now will be available online only, according to the lottery's Web site. The final TV drawing was held on Saturday.
The Mega Millions drawings will continue to be televised on Tuesdays and Fridays, the notice says.
The move is a cost-saving measure, according to the site. The lottery had paid TV stations to air the drawings.
Lottery officials wrote in the notice that large numbers of people already turn to the Internet and mobile devices to check winning numbers. The lottery's site already makes the drawings available using video.
Winning numbers for the Virginia Lottery, and all other state lottery games across the United States, Canada, and United Kingdom, are available at Lottery Post (www.lotterypost.com/results).
