There’s lots of news to report in the realm of the PA Lottery’s Second Chance Drawings at the moment. Second Chance Drawings are the bonus drawings that offer players another chance of winning big bucks by submitting their non-winning lottery tickets.

You don’t have to pick numbers, and there’s no set odds. It works just like a raffle; The more tickets you enter, the better chance you have of winning.

First off, the latest drawing has just opened for entries, and you’re going to like the prizes it offers. The annual Spring drawing, this year called Raining Riches is accepting entries until May 12. Unlike the recent drawings, no PA Lottery Scratch-Offs or Fast Play games are eligible for this one; it’s all draw games this time around.

You can enter tickets from the following games, whether they have already won a prize or not. The eligible games are PICK 2, PICK 3, PICK 4, PICK 5, Treasure Hunt, Cash 5 with Quick Cash, Match 6 Lotto, Cash4Life, Powerball, Mega Millions and even Keno. One caveat: You must have purchased the tickets at a Lottery retailer; tickets purchased online are not eligible. Complete rules and other information is available at
