COLUMBIA, SC (FOX Carolina) -

On Saturday starting at 11:45 p.m, South Carolina Education Lottery ticket sales and validations will be temporarily closed. 

On May 12, the lottery will be transitioning to a new central gaming system vendor. 

This transition is part of their normal contractual changeover. The new 10-year contract was awarded to the International Game Technology (IGT) in 2017. 

Ticket sales and validations are scheduled to return to normal on Sunday afternoon, May 13, and drawings will take place as scheduled. 

The SC Education Lottery wants to thank its players and retailers for their patience and cooperation as they switch over to this new system.
