Final Penn. Super 6 Lotto Drawing Increases Prizes for 70,518 Players

Pennsylvania LotteryPennsylvania Lottery: Final Penn. Super 6 Lotto Drawing Increases Prizes for 70,518 Players

No one matched all six numbers drawn in the final Super 6 Lotto drawing Tuesday night, 8-9-11-23-44-45.

The $8,115,513 million cash jackpot prize - more than one million dollars greater than the estimated cash jackpot of $7 million -- rolled down into the lower prize tiers for the game, awarding 70,518 players enhanced prizes.

The jackpot money was shared proportionately by second-, third- and fourth-tier winners:


  • $2,839,054 - 33.33 percent of the prize pool - was allocated to match-five prizes,

  • $2,661,879 - 31.25 percent of the prize pool - was allocated to match-four prizes, and,

  • $3,017,080 - 35.42 percent of the prize pool - was allocated to match-three prizes.

Money allocated to each prize category is divided equally among the winners in that category.

Prize Category      Jan. 27 Super 6      Number of
                      Prize Payout        Winners
---------------------------------------------------
    Match-5              $69,245                41
---------------------------------------------------
    Match-4              $1,054            2,524
---------------------------------------------------
    Match-3                  $44            67,953
---------------------------------------------------

Executive Director of the Pennsylvania Lottery Ed Mahlman said the Lottery decided to reward loyal Super 6 players by rolling down the jackpot prize into lower tiers for the final drawing.

"Players who won $3,818.50 for matching five-of-six numbers drawn last Tuesday tonight had a chance to take home a prize more than 18 times that, a result of this roll-down," said Mahlman. "Super 6 has developed a loyal player base over the past five years, and we're happy to provide this exciting bonus to those loyal players as we retire the game."

Super 6 sales from the game's Sept. 6, 1998 inception through this evening total $1,032,873,747. Since about 37 cents from every Lottery sales dollar is dedicated to funding programs for older Pennsylvanians, Super 6 Lotto generated more than $382 million for the Commonwealth's older residents.

Oh lucky them  I was not one of them, but my co-worker and his wife were.  Not bad.  He said he spent $10 worth of tickets and won $44.

Pa.  should have a roll-down game like this full time.  Probably wouldn't pay this good though.

Thoughts, anyone?

    I'd like to see a roll down game, but I agree, the payouts wouldn't be that good for it. I don't know if it was cause of the numbers drawn or what, but I'm surprised that many people played Stupid 6 last night. But I guess word of the roll down got out and prompted more players to play.

      smd173:

      I remember that Delaware's (Multistate) roll down game paid about 3 times for roll down.  Not bad.  Impressed the clerk with a $39 cash-in (3 numbers ot of 5 drawn out of 45? Can't remember but it was more than 39 like cash 5.

      For those of us buying our Match 6 tickets yesterday at lunch time in Harrisburg at Strawberry Square, we were entertained by Local Live at 5 Anchor Dennis Owens.  Nothing like being on TV.

        I spent $20 to win $44... first time stupid 6 ever paid off for me...and the last.

        Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.

          Congratulations, hypersoniq.

          Best I ever did on that game is when a while back when local vendor had a promotion that if one of each ticket was purchased, your name was thrown into the box, and winner got a t-shirt .  So a stupor 6 was one of them and lo and behold, I had 4 numbers and got around $50.  The next day, the store called me and I won a T-shirt, too.

          Of course I am one of the many who couldn't wait to buy Power Ball in Pa.  (Used to win in Delaware) and never played super 6 unless, of course, as explained above, it was absolutely necessary.

          One more comment.  I sure miss those calendars that the Lottery Bureau Gave away and especially the coupons.  That's our Gov.  And I work for him.  No nothing for us.
