Match 6 Lotto
Match 6 Lotto is Pennsylvania's nightly draw game with a jackpot that starts at $500,000 and rolls over until someone matches all six numbers. With no limit to how large the top prize can grow, it can reach more than $5 million! With more ways to match winning numbers, players have the chance to win up to four times per game. And there's more - all prizes are paid as a one-time lump sum amount with no annuity, so you can take home your cash payout right away.
With drawings every evening at 6:59 pm ET, there are plenty of opportunities to win. To enter that night's game, pick up your ticket by 6:57 pm, when sales close before the draw.
How to Play
All you need to do to start playing is pick up a playslip and select six numbers from 1 to 49. You can also have them randomly generated using a Quick Pick. The cost is $2.00 per play, and you can play up to five times per playslip (one play / game per panel).
Once that's done, you'll also receive two extra lines of random numbers on your ticket, for a total of 18 numbers per play, giving you even more chances to win.

To win a prize, match three or more numbers in any row to the numbers the lottery draws. You can win with matches in one, two, or all three of your rows of numbers.
You can also win by combining all 18 numbers - match four or more of the lottery's numbers to win.

A winner is entitled to the highest prize won by their numbers on a play, and the highest prize won on the combined game.
If more than one player wins the jackpot, the winners will split the prize.
All prizes are paid as one-time cash lump sums.
