WELCOME TO DALLAS LOTTERY
The Numbers Game is the oldest game still offered by the Dallas Lottery. The first drawing was on April 10, 1976. Originally designed to compete with the illegal numbers game, the Lottery’s Numbers Game gives players an opportunity to select their numbers, the type of bet, the length of time and dollar amount (beginning at $.25) they would like to play.In 1981, that process stopped when the Lottery acquired the most sophisticated computer betting terminals on the market at that time. These terminals were replaced in 1999. Today, players can place bets right up until shortly before the 5:50 p.m. morning drawings, 00:10 a.m midday drawings or the 11:50 a.m. for the evening drawings.
