When Are the Draw Times for the International Lotteries?

Know when all those international lotteries are being drawn

Are you getting into playing online lottery but you want to make sure that you’re able to check the winning numbers as soon as they have been drawn? This can be a little more complicated if you’re playing international lottery games because you find yourself struggling with the time difference.

Well, it actually doesn’t have to be as difficult as you might think, as long as you know what the time is in the area that the game is played in and you know your own time zone.

The following list can be used so that you never miss an opportunity to participate in any of those lotteries. Buy your tickets online now at RedFoxLotto.com (just click here to go to their website). Bear in mind that RedFoxLotto will send someone out to buy an actual ticket for that lottery for you. That, of course, takes some time, and that is why you do not want to wait until 10 minutes before the draw. Make sure you order your tickets at least one hour (better make that two hours!) before the draw time.

Copy and paste the list below into a text file, then edit the draw hour according to your local time zone and print the whole thing out (or save the text file for future reference).

And further down below, there is a nice jpeg image with a calendar – you can download and/or print that one out as well, but if you want to edit the draw hours according to the time zone you live in, you are better off copying the text below.

Now, if you take a look at each of these times you’ll see that they’re listed as ‘UTC.’ UTC stands for Universal Standard Time, and it’s a way to measure time that makes it a whole lot easier for someone to calculate. Once you have the UTC of the game draw you need to know your own time zone.

  • Central European Time or CET is equal to UTC + 1. So, if the game draws at 20:00 UTC that means that it’s at 21:00 CET.
  • Eastern Standard Time or EST is UTC – 5. So, if the game draws at 20:00 UTC that means that it’s at 15:00 EST.
  • Finally Pacific Standard Time or PST is UTC – 8. So, if the game draws at 20:00 UTC that means that it’s at 12:00 PST.

Once you know what your own time zone is you’ll be able to take a look at the list above and see exactly where you fall and how to calculate the correct time in your own area. That way, you’ll be able to check out the winning numbers as soon as they come on.
