Review of PA Lottery
With the recent Powerball payout reaching historic proportions, many of us are dreaming of what we would do with our winnings. Luckily, the PA Lottery Powerball has been available since 2002. PA Lottery online, which has been available since October 2017, also offers a newer and easier way to play the lottery from your very own home at your own convenience. My PA Lottery review will help you decide what games will help you achieve your lottery dreams.
First, for those looking to take advantage of the Pennsylvania Lottery online option, you must check out the PA Lottery online website, PA iLottery. If you want to use Pennsylvania Lottery online, you must be eligible to sign up for an account with the PA Lottery website. In order to do this, you must be 18 years of age or older, have a valid PA address, and, importantly if you want to be able to play online, you must be within the state borders of PA.
The PA Lottery online website is pretty easy to use. When you get to the PA iLottery website, you will see the menu across the top of the page.

The scrolling header that lives at the top of the page touts a 100% Deposit Bonus plus $5 Free Play at the time that you sign up. The header pans to other promotions available. The first step for me when signing up for any new page is to try to find the best deal available. To me, the best plan of action is to hunt down the promotions being offered at the time. In the table above, check out all the current promotions.

PA Lottery Pick 3
Being more familiar with the bigger lottery games like the PA Lottery Powerball, I was unaware there were options like the PA Lottery Pick 3. One of the interesting components of the PA Lottery Pick 3 is the fact that you can play it every day, twice a day. Because there is an option for the day and for the evening, you are never too late to play the next game.
For the PA Lottery 3, you try to match the winning lottery numbers in the PA Lottery Pick 3 day and/or PA Lottery Pick 3 evening. You can also choose to add the Wild Ball option, which will give you more chances to win. The Wild Ball number drawn can replace another number drawn by the Lottery, which in turn helps increase your chances of winning.
How to Play
- Visit your local PA Lottery retailer to get a PA Lottery Pick 3 playslip.
- Play up to 5 panels on your Pick 3 playslip. Pick any 3 digit number on each game panel. Also, you have a Quickplay option if you want your numbers chose randomly by the computer.
- Then, choose your play type: Straight, Box, Straight/Box, Super Straight, Front Pair, or Back Pair.
- Next, pick the drawing you want to play. Day, Evening, or Day & Evening.
- Next, you choose the amount of money you want to place on each Pick 3 Game, either $.50 or $1. Then choose the time and date you want to play. You can place Pick 3 play types for up to 7 draws in advance.
- Then you wait for the PA Lottery Pick 3 results. You can check Pick 3 Lottery results by watching the Pick 3 Day Drawing daily on the PA Lottery website after 1:35 PM EDT, watching the Pick 3 Evening Drawing nightly on the PA Lottery website after 6:59 PM EDT on TV or online streaming, by checking the PA Lottery website or the PA Lottery official mobile app, or you can visit the Lottery VIP Players Club website to sign up for emails and text messages of winning numbers.
PA Lottery Pick 4
PA Lottery Pick 4 is an option very similar to PA Lottery Pick 3. Also different from the PA Lottery Powerball which only has 2 drawings per week, PA Lottery Pick 4 offers two different drawings per day, daytime and evening, which means two drawings every day. Pick 4 also allows you to purchase the Wild Ball option to replace one of the numbers drawn by the Lottery.
How to Play
- You must once again venture out of your house to your local PA Lottery retailer to play the Pick 4 Lottery and purchase a playslip.
- You can play up to 5 panels on your Pick 4 playslip. Pick any 4 digit number on each game panel. There is also the Quickplay option which allows you to have a computer choose your numbers randomly.
- Pick your play type from these options: Straight, Box, or Straight/Box. If you choose Straight wager, you must match the winning numbers in the exact order they are drawn, as opposed to Box wagers, which just need you to match the winning numbers in any order.
- Choose the drawing you wish to play from: Day, Evening, or Day and Evening.
- Choose the amount of money you are placing on each Pick 4 game, either $.50 or $1. Then the time and dates you want to play. You can choose PA Lottery Pick 4 play types for up to 7 draws in advance.
- You will find the results in the same places as the PA Lottery Pick 3 results.
