Pennsylvania Lottery was created by the Pennsylvania General Assembly on August 26, 1971, two months later after Henry Kaplan was appointed as the first executive director of the lottery. The Pennsylvania Lottery sold its first lottery ticket on March 7, 1972, and drew its first official lottery numbers on March 15, 1972.
The Pennsylvania State Lottery is the only lottery that allocates its proceeds to programs that benefit older residents. The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania governs the state lottery, wherein it executes and regulates the operational power over the lottery. Since its establishment, the lottery has contributed more than $29 billion to programs like low-cost prescription assistance, senior centers and meals, care services, and property tax rebates.
Pennsylvania Lottery introduced Pick 4 on November 22, 1980, as Big 4 which was renamed to Pick 4 on January 27, 2015, and since then the game has produced a considerable number of winners.
