Over $200 million in PA Lottery Scratch-Off prizes were awarded in February
The PA Lottery reported that February Scratch-Off prizes totaled more than $201 million. That total includes six prizes of $500,000 and seven prizes of $250,000 among many others. Interestingly, no prizes of $1 million or more were reported last month on Scratch-Off tickets. In contrast, we’ve already seen three prizes of $1 million or more won in the first week of March.
In the previous month, there were six prizes of $1 million or more hit on Scratch-Offs including the highest prize of $5 million on one ticket. That prize was hit again last week on the $5 Million Money Maker, marking the second time that prize has been won. In January, the total of all Scratch-Off prizes was reported to be over $231 million.
For the curious, winners are always listed on the Winners section of the PA Lottery site. The list doesn’t include winners of $1,000 or less.
