Pick 2 is a draw game from the Pennsylvania Lottery with a top prize of $50 and drawings twice a day. There are a variety of play types so you'll never get bored, and the Wild Ball add-on offers even more ways to win.
The Day draw is held at 1:35 pm ET seven days a week. Sales close at 1:05 pm, so be sure to get your tickets before then to enter that day's draw. The Evening draw takes place daily at 6:59 pm ET. To enter that night's draw, purchase your tickets before sales end at 6:57 pm.
How to Play
You can play up to five times on your playslip - each panel is a separate play and costs $1.00. Simply choose two numbers from 0 through 9. You can also use Quick Pick to have your numbers randomly generated for the next draw. Quick Pick numbers are automatically a Straight play unless you choose another type.
Choose your play type: Straight, Box, Straight/Box, Super Straight, Front Digit, or Back Digit.
Decide which drawings to play: Day, Evening, or both.
Advance Play lets you play your favorite numbers for up to seven consecutive Day and Evening draws.
Add the new Wild Ball option for even more chances to win. A one-digit Wild Ball number is randomly chosen before each Day and Evening draw. The Wild Ball number can replace one of the winning numbers that was drawn to give you a winning selection. Wild Ball doubles the cost of your play type and the payouts are also different.
Prizes and Odds of Winning
If you match both the Pick 2 numbers drawn, you can win up to the top prize of $50. The table below shows the prize payouts and odds for each play style. Note that although the cost is $1.00 per play, the total cost for the Super Straight or Straight/Box play types is $2.00, because they are combined plays ($1.00 per play times two plays).
