The West Virginia Lottery announced it will add a third lottery drawing to its weekly schedule.
A Monday drawing will begin August 23. The additional drawing will join the drawings conducted on Wednesday and Saturday nights.
The Powerball tickets will remain at $2 each. West Virginia will not add a new Double Play game that is becoming available in thirteen other states, but the W.Va. Lottery has not ruled out adding Double Play later.
The ticket sales from the third weekly drawing will contribute to fund vital public programs and services through the state lottery like education, senior citizens, and tourism.
