PA state Lottery Powerball

PA LotteryWith jackpots for the multi-state Powerball® and Mega Millions® games totaling $376 million, tickets are selling at a very brisk pace at Pennsylvania Lottery retailers statewide.

For tonight’s drawing, the Powerball jackpot offers a $222 million annuity value, or a $144.5 million cash prize.

After last night’s drawing, the Mega Millions jackpot for Friday, May 10 rose to a $154 million annuity value, or a $115.2 million cash prize. Two Mega Millions tickets worth $250, 000 each from the May 7 drawing were sold at retailers in Philadelphia.

“May is Older Pennsylvanians Month, making this an ideal time to experience such high jackpots and incredible sales for the Powerball and Mega Millions games, ” said Lottery Executive Director Todd Rucci. “From these current big jackpot runs alone, the Pennsylvania Lottery has generated more than $18 million to support vital benefits and services for older Pennsylvanians.”

Between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Tuesday, May 7, statewide ticket sales for both games peaked at a rate of more than 1, 000 tickets per minute.

Lottery officials reported Powerball ticket sales started very strongly this morning and will likely surge again later in the day.

Tickets for Powerball and Mega Millions are available until 9:59 p.m. on drawing nights. The Pennsylvania Lottery advises players to purchase Powerball and Mega Millions tickets early to avoid any last-minute rush, and to always play responsibly.

How to play Powerball: Players pay $2 and select five white balls from the first set of 59 numbers plus a single red ball, the Powerball, from a second set of 35 numbers. Players may select their own numbers using a Powerball playslip, or they may opt for computer-selected quick picks. Players must match all five numbers drawn plus the Powerball number to win the jackpot. There also are eight additional ways for players to win a cash prize.

Powerball tickets are sold in 43 states, Washington, D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Drawings are held on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

How to Play Mega Millions: Mega Millions tickets cost $1 per play. Players pick five numbers from 1 to 56 and one number from 1 to 46 (the Mega Ball). Players can pick their own numbers or have numbers randomly selected by computer. For an extra $1 per play, players can add the Megaplier. Prior to the Mega Millions drawing, the Megaplier number – ranging from two to four – is randomly selected.

A player who matches five white balls and purchased Megaplier wins $1 million. Other non-jackpot prizes are multiplied by the Megaplier number drawn.

Mega Millions tickets are sold in 42 states, Washington, D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Drawings are held on Tuesdays and Fridays.

How to play powerball lottery?

ive never actually played but i was walking down the street and i just found a blank ticket im pretty sure its a powerball ticket its like a strip of paper and its pink & white.... anyways i wasnt sure if i was supposed too put in one number for each collumn or 5in each and what do you do with the bottom of it like theres a game A on top and under it it says B do i have to fill in both and arent there 6 numbers in powerball like 5 regular and then 1 power number or somthing... where do i pick that number sorry if its a stupid question

It sounds like you didn't find a ticket. It sounds like you found a BLANK FORM with which you can BUY a ticket. Those blank forms are free. You still have to pay money if you want to buy a PowerBall ticket.
Understand that these tickets are the WORST bet on the entire planet. You could spend $50 per week for the next 70 years of your life, and you still would have, by any practical measure, ZERO chance of ever hitting the jackpot.
If you accept that, and you still want to occasionally spend 2 bucks on a ticket, then fine. Perhaps it's worth it to give you that dream of "hitting it big…
