As of Friday, January 17, 2020, PA residents can now buy their tickets online, this includes Mega Millions® and Powerball®. PA Lottery made the announcement via their website.
“We are excited to announce that we are now selling Powerball and Mega Millions tickets online,” said Pennsylvania Lottery Executive Director Drew Svitko. “Selling lottery online is a big part of our effort to appeal to new customers and meet our players where they already are — which is online. This is an important step that will help us continue generating funds to benefit older Pennsylvanians.”
“By law, online lottery players must be physically located in the state of Pennsylvania to play for money and win prizes,” Svitko noted. “As with all Lottery games, we urge players to play responsibly and always within their means.”
