Pennsylvania Lottery sales rise to $445 million 


The Pennsylvania Lottery announced it has generated record revenue of $445.6 million in November, driven by more than $370 million in traditional games sales, such as scratch-off tickets and multi-state draws.

In a statement, the PA Lottery said “We are extremely proud that we kept funds flowing to programs that benefit older Pennsylvanians during a year when many sorely needed this assistance,” PA Lottery executive director Drew Svitko said in a statement

Pennsylvania currently offers 58 different scratch-off games to play, with prizes ranging from a free ticket to a $5 million jackpot.

Several tickets offer second-chance opportunities if you don’t win on your first try. Players can receive one entry in a consolation drawing for every dollar spent on a submitted, non-winning ticket.

All proceeds from the Pennsylvania State Lottery go towards the benefit of older residents. The lottery has contributed more than $35.1 billion to fund tax relief and other services and benefits since sales began in 1971.
