Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

MIDDLETOWN, Pa., Aug. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Look what happened while everyone was paying attention to Powerball: the Pennsylvania Lottery's Match 6 Lotto jackpot grew to $3.3 million. If won, it would be the fifth-largest jackpot in the game's history.

The next drawing is at 6:59 p.m. tonight, Thursday, Aug. 8.

The odds of winning the Match 6 Lotto jackpot are approximately 1-in-4,661,272, some of the Pennsylvania Lottery's best odds of winning a multimillion-dollar jackpot.

Match 6 Lotto players have been watching the jackpot grow since one ticket matched all six winning numbers in the May 13 drawing. 

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.

About the Pennsylvania Lottery: The Pennsylvania Lottery remains the only state lottery that designates all its proceeds to programs that benefit older residents. Since its inception in 1971, the Pennsylvania Lottery has contributed nearly $23.7 billion to programs that include property tax and rent rebates; free transit and reduced-fare shared rides; the low-cost prescription drug programs PACE and PACENET; long-term living services; and the 52 Area Agencies on Aging, including full- and part-time senior centers throughout the state.

The Pennsylvania Lottery reminds its players to play responsibly. Players must be 18 or older.
