$5 Million Money Maker provides lots of ways to win
The $5 Million Money Maker is a match-style game with the winning numbers represented by stars, and your numbers depicted as dollar signs. When the numbers match, you win. Instant wins are also available.
In addition to the top six prizes, the $5 Million Money Maker features instant cash prizes of $1,000, $500, and a chance to win all 30 prize values on the card if a vault (win all) symbol appears.
Players can also earn 20 or 50 times their prize values if a corresponding multiplier symbol shows up.
In total, the $5 Million Money Maker will offer over $285 million in cash prizes, with more than 145,000 prizes of $500 to $10,000.
PA Lottery’s first $50 scratch-off ticket
At present, the $5 Million Money Maker is the only $50 scratch-off ticket available from the PA Lottery. The special game was released to help celebrate the 50th anniversary of the PA Lottery, which arrived in March. The ticket’s higher price tag helps to fund the massive payouts.
The game has also had a positive impact on PA Lottery sales. In its first week, the $5 Million Money Maker broke a one-week sales record for an individual scratch-off game and accounted for nearly 20% of all scratch-off sales for that week.
The game has brought lots of excitement since it launched. It also delivered an enormous amount to two players this spring.
PA Lottery players hit big with $5 Million Money Maker
Overall, players have a 1 in 3.69 chance of winning on the $5 Million Money Maker ticket. And a lucky few will win big.
Two of those winners were crowned this spring.
In March, Joshua Toomey of Erie County, purchased a $5 Million Money Maker top-prize ticket from the Country Fair gas station on Zimmerly Road in Millcreek Township.
One month later, a player in Dauphin County bought another big winner from the Herr Quick Stop in Harrisburg.
Both players scratched off the stars. Then, they cleared the dollar signs. And just like that, both players became $5 million richer.
But the good news is, there is plenty of it left. Many big prizes still remain and some lives will change.
