Pennsylvania Lottery Games

Founded in August 1971, the first Pennsylvania Lottery draw took place in March the following year. The Pennsylvania Lottery offers a wide range of multi-jurisdictional and locally run games, with opportunities to win significant sums of money every day.

Proceeds from Pennsylvania Lottery fund programs are designed to benefit older residents, with it currently being the only lottery in the United States that distributes proceeds in this manner.

Powerball

Powerball is a world-famous lottery renowned for its long odds and often lucrative jackpots.

Powerball tickets cost $2.00, with players choosing five numbers between 1 and 69 plus a Powerball number between 1 and 26. Players can choose their numbers manually or go for a Quick Pick if they wish. A Power Play option is also available, costing $1.00 for the chance to multiply non-jackpot prizes by up to 10 times.

Mega Millions

Mega Millions is another world-renowned lottery that’s even harder to win than Powerball, but with a very similar format.

As with Powerball, tickets cost $2.00.

Players must choose five numbers between 1 and 70 and a Mega Ball number between 1 and 25, with a Quick Pick option also available for random selections. Mega Millions has an additional Megaplier feature for $1.00, for the chance to multiply non-jackpot prizes by up to 10 times.

Cash4Life

Cash4Life is a popular multi-jurisdictional game played across nine states, giving players the chance to win annual payouts for 20 years or take home a lump-sum jackpot of $7 million.

Entry costs $2.00, with players choosing five main numbers from 1 to 60 and a Cash Ball number between 1 and 4. Quick Pick is also available for random selections.

Match 6

Match 6 is a traditional 6 from 49 lottery. Entries cost $2.00 for three sets of six numbers.

Participants must choose six numbers from 1 to 49 or can go for a Quick Pick for random selections. Note that the second and third sets of numbers are always Quick Picks.

Cash 5

Cash 5 is a straightforward lottery game that costs $2.00 to enter.

Players choose five numbers from 1 to 43 or can go for a Quick Pick to enter with random selections.

Each Cash 5 ticket includes the Quick Cash instant-win game at no additional cost, although the payouts of $2.00 and $6.00 are very modest!

Millionaire Raffle

The Millionaire Raffle is a seasonal raffle-style draw that costs $20 to enter.

Only 500,000 Millionaire Raffle tickets are sold, with tickets being sequentially listed from 000001 to 500000 and, because there are no play slips to complete, simply ask for a Millionaire Raffle ticket to get the next available number.

In total, eight Millionaire Raffle draws take place across the festive season, with four top prizes of $1 million available.

Treasure Hunt

Treasure Hunt is a straightforward lottery game that costs just $1.00 to enter.

Participants must choose five numbers from 1 to 30 or can go for a Quick Pick for randomly chosen numbers.

Pick 5

Pick 5 has multiple entry options and costs just $1.00 to enter.

Players must choose five numbers from 0 to 9, and because each number is chosen independently, players can make repeat selections if desired. Players then select the type of bet to place, with exact order, any order, front and back pair, front and back three, and front and back four options available.

Players can also add a Wild Ball to their ticket for an additional $1.00. The Wild Ball number is drawn after each game and can be used as a replacement number when the result is only a single digit from winning a prize. Note that while adding the Wild Ball improves prize-winning odds, prizes are paid out at a lower value.

Pick 4

Pick 4 has multiple entry options, with stakes of $0.50 or $1.00 being available.

Players must choose four numbers from 0 to 9, and because each number is chosen independently, the same number can be chosen repeatedly if desired. Participants then choose whether to bet on matching their numbers in the order drawn, in any order, or to split a $1.00 stake equally between both options.

Players can also add a Wild Ball to their ticket to double the stake. The Wild Ball number is drawn after each game and can be used as a replacement number when the result is only a single digit from winning a prize. Note that while adding the Wild Ball improves prize-winning odds, prizes are paid out at a lower value.

Pick 3

Pick 3 has multiple entry options, with stakes of $0.50 or $1.00 being available.

Players must choose three numbers from 0 to 9, and because each number is chosen independently, the same number can be chosen repeatedly if desired. Participants then choose whether to bet on matching their numbers in the order drawn, in any order, or to split a $1.00 stake equally between both options.

Additionally, Super Straight is available for a ticket with every possible combination of the three player-chosen numbers. In this instance, players pay $0.50 or $1.00 per combination, so if a participant chooses 1, 2 and 3 as a Super Straight entry, tickets would respectively cost $3.00 or $6.00.

Participants can also wager against matching the first or final pairs of numbers drawn.

Players can also add a Wild Ball to their ticket to double the stake. The Wild Ball number is drawn after each game and can be used as a replacement number when the result is only a single digit from winning a prize. Note that while adding the Wild Ball improves prize-winning odds, prizes are paid out at a lower value.

Pick 2

Pick 2 has multiple entry options and costs just $1.00 to enter.

Players must choose two numbers from 0 to 9, and because both numbers are chosen independently, the same number can be chosen twice if desired. Participants then choose whether to bet on matching the numbers in the order drawn, in any order, or matching the first or last numbers only.

Participants can combine an exact-order and an any-order bet for $2.00 if they wish. Also, a Super Straight bet works in the same way and costs the same as combining an exact-order and an any-order bet, but pays out more money. Therefore, choose a Super Straight entry to maximise your winnings!

Players can also add a Wild Ball to their ticket to double the stake. The Wild Ball number is drawn after each game and can be used as a replacement number when the result is only a single digit from winning a prize. Note that while adding the Wild Ball improves prize-winning odds, prizes are paid out at a lower value.
