This exciting PA game has the chance to play and win up to a $50,000 cash prize twice every day. With the Wild Ball add-on, you get even more possible winning matches. Enter the Day draw at 1:35 pm ET, the Evening draw at 6:59 pm, or both. Ticket sales close just before each draw, at 1:05 pm and 6:57 pm, so make your purchase before then to enter the next game.
How to Play
Each game costs $1.00 and you can play up to five times on a playslip – one panel equals one play.
For every play, choose any five-digit number from 00000 to 99999. Alternatively, Quick Pick can randomly generate the numbers for you.
Your play type will determine the prizes you’re eligible for and the chances of winning – see “Prizes and Odds of Winning” below for more details. Straight play: Only an exact order match with the numbers drawn wins. Box play: A match in any order with the numbers drawn wins.
Select your draw time: Day at 1:35 pm ET, Evening at 6:59 pm ET, or enter both. You may also Advance Play your numbers and play type to enter up to seven future draws on one ticket.
Wild Ball is an add-on for any Pick game that can create more chances to win. The Lottery draws a random one-digit Wild Ball before each Day and Evening draw. Use the Wild Ball number to replace one of the game numbers drawn for the chance to match extra winning combos (your ticket doesn’t change).
If you add Wild Ball, the cost of your play type will double and payouts will also differ from the base game. See “Prizes and Odds of Winning” below and visit the Wild Ball page for more information.
