I seen on my ticket "last draw March 10th all prizes will go to lower tier if not won." Is the game ending or being replaced? Does this mean all of the current jackpot will be divided up to all the lower tier winners? Is another game replacing it? I did not see anything on the site though yet. I won quite a bit over the years through lower tier prizes, and had 4 of 6 several times. I think Lucky For Life Lotto should come back, but for at least $1,000 a week for life not $3,000 a month. (6 of 38)

 

I am not too upset with this, I liked getting some money back once in awhile, but it was pretty frustrating never winning anything substantial. I also disliked the $2 price tag, even for LFL as well. It seems as though $2 games never last too long. Is Mix and Match next? I play that once in awhile as well, and have yet to win anything over $20. The most I got are 3 numbers with one or two in the correct order. Guess I will have to go big on the Match 6 last draw. Lep

      PENNSYLVANIA LOTTERY INTRODUCES NEW GAME FEATURING $1 MILLION STARTING JACKPOT

      Super 7 Will Replace Match 6 Lotto on Tuesday, Friday Evenings

       "MIDDLETOWN – March 5, 2009 - Next week, the Pennsylvania Lottery will introduce Super 7, a new $2 terminal-based game offering an annuity jackpot that begins at $1 million and continues to grow until it is won.

      Super 7 will replace Match 6 Lotto in the Pennsylvania Lottery’s Tuesday and Friday evening drawing shows at 7 p.m.  Super 7 tickets go on sale Wednesday, March 11.  The first Super 7 drawing will be conducted Friday, March 13.

      “Match 6 Lotto had a great five-year run,” said Ed Trees, Lottery’s executive director.  “However, lottery players enjoy new games and Lottery accommodates by keeping its game lineup fresh.  This time we’re bringing back an old favorite game from the late 1980s with Super 7, but with a few new twists.”

      To play Super 7, players choose seven numbers from one to 77, or use the quick-pick, computer-selection method.  To win the Super 7 jackpot, players must match seven of the 11 numbers drawn.

      Players who prefer the cash jackpot must select the “cash” payout option at the point of purchase; if no such election is made, the jackpot will be paid as an annuity.  Besides the jackpot, players can win cash prizes by matching six, five, four or three winning numbers.  Super 7 tickets may be purchased up to 13 weeks (26 draws) in advance.  Odds of winning the Super 7 jackpot are 1-in-7,287,298.  The overall odds of winning a Super 7 prize are 1-in-20.2. 

      Match 6 Lotto debuted Jan. 28, 2004.  The final Match 6 Lotto drawing will be conducted Tuesday, March 10.  If the final Match 6 Lotto jackpot is not won, the amount of the jackpot will be rolled down into the game’s lower-tier prizes.  The proportion of money added to each of the 10 lower prize tiers will be based on the percentage of prize money normally awarded in each of the lower tiers.  All winners will receive allocations from the jackpot rolldown.

      “The final Match 6 Lotto drawing could be a great opportunity for lower-tier Match 6 winners to cash in on a piece of the jackpot,” said Trees.

      The largest Match 6 Lotto jackpot, $5,858,436 cash, less 25 percent federal withholding, was won by a York County man who matched all six winning numbers in the May 3, 2005, drawing. As of Feb. 10, there have been 49 Match 6 jackpot prize winners. During its five-year run, Match 6 logged more than 55.8 million winning experiences worth $281.6 million."

       

      You were right. I intend to "cash in" big on tonight's and Tuesday's draw. Lep

      Another $2 game kinda sucks. But these days that might just be safer than investing in banks. 77 numbers is not that great of odds, even if 11 numbers are drawn. Will be interesting to see how quickly the jackpot builds up. However I believe that the $2.00 price tag will keep sales down A LOT more than a $1.00 price tag would. I would buy a lot more at $1.00 than I would at $2.00. But it is good to see some changes from the same old games, or bringing back older ones with "new twists."

      I like that it starts at $1 millions dollars, but they should make that after taxes because it is actually about $750,000. Nonetheless I won't complain about winning anything over a million, annuity or cash. Both have their advantages and weaknesses. You can earn far more interest with a high cash value, but an annuity is pretty much guranteed long-term money, and more of it if you invest or save it wisely. But at least you can choose cash or annuity, however they should just offer both like the powerball. It is stupid to make you choose before you buy the ticket.

        Anyone live in PA?  If there is no Match 6 winner on Tuesday all that money (over $900,000) will rolldown to the lower prizes.  I want some tickets!  haha

              This game is slightly modified though as I said, but still too many numbers in my opinion. I win a decent amount on big 4 games, but I prefer jackpots that pay enough to have life altering effects. So I will still play this once in awhile. I like when the Cash 5 goes up into the millions, but then there is usually 3 winners making it much smaller. You basically have two choices, play smaller games with smaller prizes or bigger games with high prizes at worse odds. I do a combination of both, but need a huge win more than change here and there.

                Sirbrad, and should you not win the big one, you can say hello to my character when I win the jackpot this coming Tuesday! Seriously would be nice to have a Lottery post player win it!

                Think of this new game like playing Keno. Same concept with the same results, low payouts . I really did like Match 6 with three lines for two dollars! Winning with combined lines still created an incentive to play.

                Not a fan at all of quinto or Treasure Hunt.

                Did read the fiscal report the state put out showing the $ drop in some of the games, its a shame they allowed a game like Match 6 be axed.

                  PA always like to produce games that are overly complex.     Their lottery games generally stink.

                  I live close to the PA border but the only thing I ever buy there is Powerball tickets - and now with the longer odds - fewer and fewer of them, since I play on an expectation value basis.

                    I got 60 lines ($40) and I think the best I did was 3 out of 6 and 4 or 5 out of 18. I was hoping to at least get 7 and up out of 18 this last draw. Figures. Good riddance Match 6, hope I hit the Super 7.

                     

                    Of course 1 winner won the last draw as I predicted.  Skeptical
