Important Claim Information: Due to upgrades to the Lottery's computer systems, after February 16, 2024, claims will temporarily take longer to process.

Match 6 Lotto is the PA Lottery game with a starting jackpot of $500,000 and lots of ways to win Lottery prizes! The Match 6 Lotto jackpot grows until someone picks the winning Lottery numbers. If more than one person wins the jackpot, the winners will split the Match 6 Lotto jackpot prize. All Match 6 Lotto Lottery prize payments, including the jackpot prize, will be made as one-time, lump-sum cash payments. A winning ticket is entitled only to the highest prize won by those numbers on each play, plus the highest prize won by those numbers on the combined game.
