PA Lottery draw games now online

The assortment of PA Lottery traditional draw games available online continues to grow. Some draw games were already listed at the PA iLottery app, but as of March 30, players can also purchase tickets for the PA Lottery’s PICK family of games and Match 6 Lotto.

Draw games now available at the PA online lottery:

  • Powerball
  • Mega Millions
  • Cash4Life
  • Treasure Hunt
  • PICK 2, PICK 3, PICK 4, PICK 5
  • Match 6

In a recent webinar, PA Lottery Press Secretary Ewa Swope said the move was part of a key overall goal.

“Our goal is to have all of our draw games available for purchase online. We are working to move all of them online.”

Pennsylvania Lottery Executive Director Drew Svitko highlighted the news as an important step in bringing the Lottery into the future.

“This is another part of our modernization effort to help us responsibly generate funds that benefit older Pennsylvanians, while meeting our players where they already are, which is online,” Svitko said in a press release.

How to play PICK and Match 6 draw games at the PA online lottery

The PICK family of games includes the popular PICK 2, PICK 3, PICK 4 and PICK 5 games where players simply choose a set of numbers aiming to match the numbers drawn in the two daily drawings. Simple, yes, but there are up to nine types of wagers you can make, each with different odds and corresponding prize amounts.

For example, a STRAIGHT wager requires you to match all the numbers drawn in the exact order, and offers the highest prize. A BOX wager allows you to match the numbers in any order but offers a smaller prize.

The Match 6 draw game offers a rolling jackpot that starts at $500,000 and grows daily until someone hits it. This game is unique in that you receive two free sets of numbers for each set of numbers you buy. When you choose six numbers to play, the computer automatically generates two additional sets of numbers.

You can win on any set of numbers, or even on multiple sets! You win a prize by matching 3, 4, 5, or all 6 numbers in a set. There are also ways to win with your combined set of 18 numbers. See full info on all the draw games available on iLottery here.

Taking your PA Lottery play online made easy

The iLottery site offers several methods you can use to fund your game play. Of course, you can use a credit or debit card or make a direct transfer from your bank account using ACH/e-check. PayPal is another common option. PayNearMe allows you to fund your account with cash at a number of retail locations in your area.

Similarly, PA Lottery’s WebCash allows you to purchase a voucher at a Lottery retailer with cash or card, and redeem the value online. Lastly, with the PA Lottery’s Play+ card, powered by Discover, you can make deposits to and withdrawals from your iLottery account with no transaction fees.
