Cash Corner$ is a $20 ticket that offers a top prize of $1 million. At press time, four $1 million jackpots remain according to the PA Lottery.
PA Lottery draw games paid big dividends
Another PA Lottery player took home $1 million from a Match 6 drawing on the same day (July 15). The player purchased a ticket from Penn Jersey Food in Lykens, Dauphin County, that matched all six winning numbers (23-29-32-36-44-46) to capture the $1,040,000 jackpot.

New PA Lottery game could turn $30 into $3 million
PA Lottery players might also be interested in a number of new games that arrived this month.

Lastly, the game also has four quick win bonus symbols that can bring instant wins of any prize that appears.
PA Lottery’s More Money can make you $500,000
Another new scratch-off game, the $10 More Money ticket, features 10 top prizes of $500,000.

The $50 bonus cannot be earned without another win on the card.
On this ticket, the winning numbers are represented by six dollar signs. Your numbers are depicted by 15 dollar symbols. Any match earns the prize shown. There are also instant wins that can multiply the prize value by five, help you win all the prizes (“WinAll”), or bring home the $50,000 grand prize.
The More Money game also offers 40 jackpots of $10,000 and other smaller prizes, as well.
