PA Lottery Match 6 Lotto Jackpot Rolls to $3.7 Million for Aug. 15 Drawing
Middletown –The Pennsylvania Lottery’s Match 6 Lotto jackpot has now risen to $3.7 million.
While no player has hit the game’s jackpot since one ticket matched all six winning numbers in the May 13 drawing, the game has continued to produce lots of winners.
Since mid-May, Match 6 Lotto has awarded more than 2.1 million prizes totaling nearly $8 million. More than 127,700 Match 6 Lotto tickets won prizes in last night’s drawing, including 47 tickets that each won $1,000.
If the next drawing on Thursday, Aug. 15, produces a big winner, it would be the fifth-largest jackpot prize in Match 6 Lotto history.
The odds of winning the Match 6 Lotto jackpot are approximately 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.
