Pennsylvania LotteryPennsylvania Lottery: Pa. Lottery Plans To Introduce New Game

The Pennsylvania lottery is currently developing a new "pick your own numbers" game.

The Pennsylvania lottery scored a record $2.1 billion in sales in fiscal year 2002-2003 -- a ten percent increase from the previous year and the largest increase in 19 years.

Lottery officials are ecstatic about the impact of the mega-jackpot Powerball game and are now developing a game to compliment Powerball.

Lottery director Edward Mahlman says like Powerball, the new game will allow players to pick their own numbers -- but will offer increased opportunities to win, as opposed to the jaw-dropping jackpots in Powerball:


"It will be one with more ways to win and different ways to win, compared to other 'on-line' games. It won't take the place of others, but it will be a nice compliment to the other games."

Lottery officials expect to roll out the new game early next year.

        Agreed, there's very little info out there right now.

          "more ways to win...different ways to win..." Keno? PA could use a keno game EVENTUALLY; right now they need a new JACKPOT game in place of Stupid-6.
