To review the rules, prizes remaining and specific chances of winning for each game, visit palottery.com. The overall chances of winning any prize vary by game and are printed on the back of each instant ticket. Overall chances are expressed across all tickets produced in a game and not by tickets sold per pack.
The chances of winning are not influenced by where a ticket is sold. Instant games are distributed at random, meaning the Pennsylvania Lottery and its retailers do not know where winning tickets will be sold.

Since ticket sales began in 1972, it has contributed nearly $27 billion to fund property tax and rent rebates, transportation, care services, prescription assistance, and local services including senior centers and meals.
