Match 6 Lotto Jackpot Rolls to $6 Million; Second-Largest on Record
Middletown – With another roll last night, the Pennsylvania Lottery’s Match 6 Lotto jackpot has reached $6 million for the Thursday, Sept. 19, drawing – the second-highest level on record.
The game’s largest jackpot was a $6.9 million prize won in the March 23, 2007 drawing.
No one has hit the Match 6 jackpot since one ticket matched all six winning numbers in the May 13 drawing.
In the meantime, millions of Match 6 Lotto players have continued to win prizes while pursuing the jackpot. Since mid-May, more than 3.6 million Match 6 tickets have won over $13.4 million in prizes.
More than 157,800 Match 6 Lotto tickets won prizes totaling over $583,500 in last night’s drawing, including 61 tickets that each won $1,000.
The odds of winning the Match 6 Lotto jackpot are roughly 1-in-4.6 million, among the Pennsylvania Lottery’s best odds of winning a multimillion-dollar jackpot.
How to Play Match 6 Lotto: Match 6 tickets cost $2 each. Players can choose six numbers from 1 to 49 or have numbers randomly selected by computer. The computer will then randomly select an additional two sets of six numbers, for three lines of six numbers each or 18 numbers total. Players can win up to four times on each ticket – once on each of three lines (base play) and by combining all 18 numbers (combined play).
Match 6 Lotto drawings are held on Monday and Thursday evenings.
