Pick 5 is one of the most popular games of the Pennsylvania lottery. The game is highly known for the exciting payouts structure and some easy to crack odds which makes your win highly possible. The draws for the game are held twice a day, thereby multiplying your chances to win the lottery. To play this hot favorite game, you need to select any five numbers from a pool of 0 to 9. If your selected numbers match the winning numbers, according to the selected play type and wager, you bag the lottery jackpot. The game also allows you to play your numbers for any draw in the future, within seven days of purchase except the current draw. You just need to ask the lottery retailer for Advance Play and you can play for any future draw.
Increasing your chances to win, the 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.
