Same game, but better than ever. It's now only a $1, you can still win $10 cash on the spot, and it gets better. There is now a growing jackpot, which starts at $3,000 a month for life or $750,000 cash. That's right, if you're the impatient type, you can take a lump sum instead. In any case, you won't just be lucky, you'll be Lucky For Life.

  •    
  • Match 6 - Minimum $3,000/month for life or $750,000 lump sum (please don't comment CASH, we know what you're going to say).
       
  •    
  • Match 5 - $1,000
  •    
  • Match 4 - $25
  •    
  • Match 3 - $1

Overall odds of winning the lotto game : 1 in 25.8

Odds of winning $10 instant prize with $1 block : 1 in 40

Odds of winning $10 instant prize with $5 block : 1 in 8

Jackpots advertised assumes a single winner, exactly 18 years old. Winners that are older will recieve higher per month payments. Go to palottery.com for the exact prize for your age (not really). The lump sum payment option will remain the same regardless of age of winner.

    Why couldn't the real PA game offer a cash option?

        Why don't lottery personnel think things through?

          Maybe you should e-mail the Lottery and pester them about adding one. You know, like you pester us. ROFL j/k (Or Am I).

                  Last time I checked "for life" (in PA) did NOT mean "for life" but for TWENTY YEARS ONLY.

                  Which do YOU mean?

                    sometimes the name of a scratch off doesn't quite exactly mean the same thing as it implies.you might have to go to the state lottery website and read the fine print....

                      You mean me? I meant for life, for real. And so does PA. I don't know where you got that information. It's either wrong or outdated.

                        Or PA is a very dangerous place to live and that's your life expectancy after they reveal your name and address.

                          Usually the 20 year timeline is a minimum - incase you drop from the excitement.

                            The "lifetime" prize is guaranteed for 28 years, although you might not live that long.

                              Here is an exact quote from the PA website:

                              *NOTE:  The set prize amounts published here are based on the expected number of winners sharing in the prize pool.  In some cases, these prizes can be paid on a pari-mutuel basis and will be lower than these published prize levels.  Refer to the Official Game Rules for a detailed explanation of optional pari-mutuel payment If more than five winning first prize (jackpot) plays are determined in the same drawing, each is entitled to a share of annual payments totaling $180,000.  Each share is limited to annual payments for the lifetime of the winner equal to $180,000 divided by the actual number of jackpot prize winners.  In these cases, the minimum lifetime amount is determined to be 28 annual payments each in the amount as determined above.

                              1) Am I understanding this correctly to mean that there are only 28 annual payments of $36,000 (gross payments) for any winner, whether or not you are the sole winner (or one of several with the same winning 6 numbers?) 

                              2) If so, why do they publicize all over the place "for life"!????  Since when does "for life" mean 28 years only???  I'd LOVE to see someone contest this in court!!! I sure would!!!

                              3) I find the wording confusing.  Also, can this prize be transferred if you die? 

                              Please clarify for me, if you can, thanks.
