    “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 tickets online is a big part of our effort to appeal to new customers and meet our players where they already are — which is online.”

    Players can purchase the tickets online the same way they would at a standard Lottery retailer with the option of choosing their own numbers and purchasing multiple tickets.

    In order to play, however, players must create an iLottery account and deposit funds into it before making any ticket purchases.

    Players must be 18 years of age or older to play, and new account holders will be required to verify their age and identity.

    “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.”

    The iLottery platform also features settings that promote responsible play in which players can set time limits, deposit limits and spend limits.

    Lottery players can download the official PA Lottery app on their computer or mobile device.
