MIDDLETOWN, Pa., April 29, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Pennsylvania Lottery players can hear the latest winning numbers by calling the toll-free results hotline, 1-877-282-4639. Day and evening drawing results are offered.
"We recently expanded our hotline to include evening drawings because we want to make it easy for players to check every ticket, every time," said Lottery Executive Director Drew Svitko.
In addition to offering current winning numbers for the Lottery's daily draw games such as the PICK family of games, Treasure Hunt and Cash 5, the hotline provides the latest Powerball®, Mega Millions®, Cash4Life™ and Match 6 Lotto results.
Only the most recent drawing results are available by telephone. To check archived drawing results, players may visit www.palottery.com and click on "Games," then select "Past Winning Numbers." A link to past results may also be found on the individual webpages for each game.
Players should also be sure to check every ticket using self-service ticket scanners found at Lottery retailers. Scanning a ticket is the only way to be certain whether it has won a prize.
"It's important for players to check all tickets promptly because we want every winner to claim their prize," Svitko added. "For draw games, prizes expire one year after the drawing date. For instant games, prizes expire one year after the end-sale date posted on palottery.com."
Most prizes may be claimed at Lottery retailers. For specific instructions on where to claim prizes of varying sizes, visit the How to Claim Your Prize page at palottery.com.
