The PA Lottery Benefits Older Pennsylvanians

Every time you play, an older Pennsylvanian wins.

How does the PA Lottery benefit older Pennsylvanians? Since the very first Lottery ticket was sold in 1972, Pennsylvania Lottery proceeds have been used to support programs for older residents, and the Pennsylvania Lottery remains the only state Lottery that designates all its proceeds to such programs.
