Hot Numbers

Why not pick a game that offers more chances of winning than the ones with extremely high odds that are much difficult to crack. Go for games like Pick 2 by Pennsylvania Lottery that provides you exciting payouts and super favorable odds to crack. The drawings for the game are held twice every day at 1:35 p.m. and 6:59 p.m., thereby offering you multiple chances to win the lottery every day! You just need to pick two numbers from 0 to 9, along with the play type which determines your lottery winnings. If your selected numbers match the winning numbers of the draw according to your wager, you bag the jackpot. The game provides you with the chance to play any draw in the future, within seven days of purchase except the current draw. You just need to ask for Advance Play and you can play for any future draw.

Not limiting your chances to win, Pennsylvania Lottery also provides you with the option of Wild Ball, which lets you have a chance to exchange the Wild Ball number with one of the winning numbers so you can get a winning combination.
