Lottery PA PALottery

The Pennsylvania Lottery was originally established back on August 26th 1971 with a ruling being passed allowing a lottery to be operated within the State.

The PA State Lottery is a government agency of the State of Pennsylvania who oversee all of the running and organization of PA Lotto games across the State.

Right from when the very first Pennsylvania State Lottery ticket was sold way back on March 7th 1972 – the principal aim of the PA Lottery was to raise funds for programs that benefit the older citizens of Pennsylvania State.

This is still the case today and the Pennsylvania Lottery can proudly claim to be the only USA Lottery company to be exclusively helping the elderly with its lottery profits.

The Penn State Lottery is based in Middeltown, PA.

PA Lottery Overview

The Pennsylvania Lottery sells lottery tickets from its network of authorized PA Lotto retailers throughout Pennsylvania State and has 7 regional offices based in Philadelphia, Wilkes-Barre, Harrisburg, Clearfield, Pittsburgh, Erie and Lehigh Valley.

The PA Lottery also takes part in 2 of the largest world lotteries – the huge Multi State Lotteries – Mega Millions and Powerball which we will be looking into in much greater detail.

We will be looking at the various PA Lotto games below – how they work and who can play them – as well as delving into some of the history of the Pennsylvania State Lottery in more depth.

PA Lottery Games

There are numerous games that are offered by the Pennsylvania State Lottery – including 2 of the biggest lottery games in the world – the Powerball and its rival the Mega Millions.

We will first of all take a look at these Multi-State USA Lottery games – that the PA Lottery offers in conjunction with the MUSLMulti State Lottery Association and Mega Millions Consortium – and then later move on to other PA Lotto games available.

Currently – the games offered by the PA State Lottery that players from anywhere in the world can buy lottery tickets online for are these 2 huge US Lotteries – the Mega Millions and Powerball.

Other games offered by the Pennsylvania Lottery that can be played in-state are noted further down the page – if any of these Pennsylvania Lotto games become available to a wider audience at a later date – we will be writing about it here.

PA Lottery Powerball – PA Powerball

Powerball is a Multi-State US Lottery that is run & syndicated across the USA by the MUSL – Multi State Lottery Association – and is one of the largest lottery games in the world having produced a record jackpot of an incredible US$ 1.58 BILLION. This massive sum is the biggest lottery jackpot ever to have been won to date in the history of world lottery games.

The very first Powerball draw took place on April 22nd 1992 with 16 USA Lottery companies – who were all members of the MUSL – taking part after the game changed its format and name from Lotto America which had first started on February 13th 1988.

PA Lottery Powerball – How it Works

The PA Powerball works in the same way as the Powerball game works in all the States and Districts in the US that offer the game.

Jackpots start off at US$ 40 MILLION and ROLLOVER after each draw when the top prize is not won – making for some massive jackpot figures.

6 numbers are drawn in total for the PA Lottery Powerball game from 2 separate drawing machines – first of all 5 numbers from 69 white balls are drawn followed by 1 number (the POWERball) from 26 red balls.

Draws for the Powerball PA take place twice every week on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 10.59pm EST.

In addition to the 6 main Powerball numbers drawn – a further number is drawn – using a Random Number Generator…the Powerball POWERPLAY number…

This separate Powerball POWERPLAY number drawn will be either 2, 3, 4, 5 and occasionally number 10 – and is there to give players of the PA Powerball a chance to increase their winnings on all levels of the prize structure apart from the PA Lottery Powerball jackpot itself.

With Powerball POWER PLAY – you will multiply your winnings on these levels by 2x, 3x, 4x or 5x – greatly increasing the amount you can walk away with.

The very first Mega Millions draw took place on May 17th 2002 with 6 USA Lottery companies taking part who were all members of the Mega Millions Consortium.

The game had changed its name and format from the Big Game which had started on August 31st 1996. Upon this change – 2 further State Lotteries joined and many more were to follow.

PA Lottery Mega Millions Overview

The Pennsylvania Lottery is 1 of 46 US State Lotteries & District Lotteries that offer the Mega Millions – in this particular case the Mega Millions PA – as part of its overall portfolio of lottery games.

The PA Mega Millions was first sold on January 31st 2010 when the Multi State Lottery Association (MUSL) who run the Powerball game – of which the PA Lottery is a member – entered into a cross-selling agreement with the Mega Millions consortium – allowing the sales of Mega Millions in Powerball States and Powerball in Mega Millions States.

PA Lottery Mega Millions How it Works

The PA Mega Millions works in exactly the same way as the Mega Millions game works in all the States and Districts in the USA that offer the game.

Jackpots start off at US$ 15 MILLION and ROLLOVER after each draw when the top prize is not won – making for some enormous jackpot figures that can be won on the Pennsylvania Mega Millions.

6 numbers are drawn in total for the PA Mega Millions – from 2 separate drawing machines – firstly 5 numbers from 75 white balls are drawn and then 1 number (the MEGAball) from 15 gold balls.

Draws for the PA Lottery Mega Millions take place twice every week on Tuesdays and Fridays at 11.00pm EST.

In addition to the 6 Mega Millions numbers drawn – a further number is drawn – using a Random Number Generator…the MEGAPLIER number…

MEGAPLIER…

This separate MEGAPLIER multiplier number drawn will be either 2, 3, 4 or 5 – and is there to give players of the Mega Millions PA a chance to increase their winnings on all levels of the prize structure apart from the PA Mega Millions jackpot itself.

With the Mega Millions MEGAPLIER option – you are able to multiply your winnings on these levels by 2x, 3x, 4x or 5x – greatly increasing the amount you can walk away with.

If you match the 5 main Mega Millions numbers playing with the MEGAPLIER add-on – and a MEGAPLIER number of 5 is drawn – the second tier prize of US$ 1 MILLION would be multiplied by x5 and you could win US$ 5 MILLION.

A great improvement to the MEGAPLIER facility occurred on October 19th 2013.

This can make your Mega Millions win even bigger when you play Mega Millions using the MEGAPLIER prize multiplier option.

The 2nd Mega Millions prize has automatically been quadrupled to US$ 1 MILLION and a more powerful MEGAPLIER multiplier of x5 has been brought in.

This means that if you match all 5 of the main Mega Millions numbers and play using the MEGAPLIER option – you will now win US$ 5 MILLION if a MEGAPLIER of x5 has been drawn.

So, for just an extra dollar – you can choose to increase your Pennsylvania Mega Millions winnings on all levels except the jackpot – by adding the Mega Millions MEGAPLIER option when playing.
