Winners to be drawn in Mass. license plate lottery
BOSTON—Massachusetts drivers hoping for low number license plates will soon find out if they've won a state lottery designed to distribute the plates.
Officials from the Massachusetts Department of Transportation and Registry of Motor Vehicles will draw the winners of the annual lottery Monday. The drawing will be held live on WBZ radio between 8 and 10 p.m.
More than 7,500 applicants entered this year's drawing for a chance to win one of 124 of the most sought after Massachusetts license plates, including plate numbers 73, 295, 449, 493, 7755 and 1Z.
A list of lottery winners will be available on the Registry's website Tuesday afternoon and winners will receive official notification by mail.
The lottery is in response to criticism that low-number plates only went to the politically connected.
