Beginning in May, the Pennsylvania Lottery moved into the 21st century by modernizing its portfolio of games. Keno was the first of three new game types to make its way to lottery players statewide. Keno draws happen every four minutes providing plenty of play. Then In late May, following the launch of Keno, the iLottery unveiled 11 brand-new instant games in its portfolio that are basically digital Scratch-Offs. The number of games eventually grew to 27 games by the end of the end of the year. And finally, in August, the Lottery dispatched Xpress Sports to Lottery retailers statewide. Simulated football plays and auto-racing two-lap contests allow players to bet on pre-determined outcomes. The Lottery expansion bolstered the its earnings by bringing in $155 million in the first six months.
