PA iLottery lives by the phrase, “Play Here. There. Everywhere.” And rightfully so. The PA Online Lottery isn’t only available through the website, but also through the PA iLottery app, allowing PA residents to access the Lottery’s assortment of games, including draw games, scratch-offs, and virtual sports betting, as well as buy non-traditional lottery tickets, check your ticket results and more on their mobile devices.
In a new world that allows players to access everything from their mobile devices, it was essential that the PA iLottery worked smoothly. For the new Pennsylvania Online Lottery to succeed, it is essential the new platform was up-to-date and appealing to the younger generation.
The traditional lotto game player would have to go to an establishment that sold tickets, fill in a card, get the actual ticket and then watch the weekly draw, huddled around the TV while everyone is already spending the money in their heads. If you were lucky enough to be holding a winning ticket, there’s still more to do - either return to the store you purchased your ticket for a payout, or if you won a bigger prize, you would have to engage with the lottery operator.
With PA iLottery being an online experience, almost all of the above could be scrapped. Players would have an online wallet into which they would load funds. The player will then use these funds to pay the main Online Lottery draw or any of the numerous other online games developed exclusively for the PA Online Lottery.
Thanks to the digital nature of PA iLottery, players no longer have to watch the live draw to see if they won. And if they did win, the funds would automatically be put into their account. The only time you would have to leave the comfort of your home is if you were one of the bigger winners.
Today, the Pennsylvania iLottery brings new games and innovative ways to play with the ultimate convenience to all citizens and residents of Pennsylvania who are within the borders of the state and of legal age to play.
PA iLottery Deposit Bonus: Matches up to to $100 on a player's deposit.
