The one-minute draw is broadcast live from the Florida
Lottery's studio inside its Tallahassee headquarters
every Wednesday and Saturday night at 10:59 pm ET.
Georgia native Sam Arlen has hosted the show since 2012.
"I feel like it's an amazing opportunity," he reflected.
"It's awesome. On some level, I feel like I'm channeling
some of that excitement and energy. There's just this
happiness, this hope that 'It could be me! It could be
me!'"For the first time since the draw moved from Iowa to
Florida in 2012, the set will get a makeover and the
broadcast will be refreshed with new graphics and music.
Although the look of the draw is changing, the iconic
Powerball game itself will remain the same. Since its
debut more than two decades ago, the game has been
coordinated by the Powerball Product Group, a part of the
Multi-State Lottery Association (MUSL), a non-profit
group of US lotteries.Powerball launched in April 1992,
and since then its draw equipment has undergone upgrades
as new technology becomes available and industry
The new ball-dispensing machines are an updated version
of the current gravity-driven machines the game has used
since 2009. The new Halogen II machines from Smartplay
International, Inc. offer compressed air enhancements
plus lighting and base customizations.
The current balls are hard rubber, while the new set are
made of solid foam, which is now the standard for balls
selected by gravity-driven dispensers. The solid foam
balls will last 4-6 years, an improvement on the 2-4
years for the rubber balls.
Eagle-eyed viewers may have noticed solid foam balls in
other recent draws. For example, foam balls were used in
January in the Powerball First Millionaire of the Year
live TV broadcast from New York. The competition, which
is being repeated this year, is part of Dick Clark’s New
Year’s Rockin’ Eve.
