April was an exciting month for PA Lottery players, with a bunch of big wins on the books. Keystone State players won over $198 million on scratch-offs alone, but several other PA Lottery games paid prizes of $1 million or more last month, too.

The largest scratch-off prizes include one worth $3 million and two others at $1 million.

A lucky Luzerne County resident bought a top-prize-winning $3 Million Mega Stacks scratcher within a month of the ticket’s release. The $30 game has four more $3 million top prizes remaining.

The winner bought their ticket at Can Do Convenience, located at 419 South Poplar Street in Hazleton. The retailer earned a $10,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

Another new ticket, called $1 Million? Seriously, had its first top prize winner last month. That $1 million winner was sold at Giant Eagle, at 100 Settlers Ridge Center Road in Pittsburgh.

Just one more PA player claimed a $1 million prize on a scratch-off last month. The $1,000,000 Game sold in Monroe County awarded that prize. Wawa, at 5121 Milford Road, sold the winning ticket.

Other notable prizes across the state contributed to the $198 million total. The largest prizes (and the number of winning tickets) were:

  • $500,000 (4)
  • $300,000 (4)
  • $250,000 (3)
  • $200,000 (4)
  • $150,000 (1)
  • $100,000 (6)

PA Lottery draw games paid out big in April

Of course, scratch-offs aren’t the only PA Lottery games worth checking out. Last month, draw games awarded some significant prizes.

The most notable draw game prize in April was more than double the largest scratch-off prize. The Match 6 drawing on Tuesday, April 25, resulted in a $6.6 million winner in Lancaster County.

A single ticket matched all six winning numbers drawn. Those winning numbers were: 1-4-9-23-30-39. Check your tickets, especially if you bought one at Rushi Petroleum at 2270 New Holland Pike, where the winner was sold.

The lottery can only determine that a retailer sold the winning ticket. A winner must take it upon themselves to claim their prize and have their ticket validated by the lottery. This applies to all PA Lottery draw games, including Mega Millions and Powerball.

However, players that buy tickets online at the PA iLottery site or mobile app can opt-in to receive automatic notifications of any winnings.

$4 in PA Lottery tickets turned into $3 million in winnings

Cash 5 With Quick Cash awarded a $2 million jackpot to a lucky winner in the Sunday, April 16 drawing. The winner bought their ticket in Philadelphia at Fishtown Market, located at 2328 East Norris Street. The Cash 5 winning numbers on April 16 were: 3-9-10-18-25.

Earlier in the month, a retailer in Westmoreland County sold a Mega Millions ticket that hit a $1 million prize on Friday, April 7. The Greensburg Newsstand at 37 West Otterman Street sold that winning ticket.

To win $1 million, a Mega Millions ticket has to match all five white balls drawn – the first five numbers. On Mega Millions, you can match the white balls in any order. The winning numbers on April 7 were 12-32-49-51-66, Mega Ball 21.

A Butler County player won a nest egg with PA Lottery Fast Play

A unique feature of some PA Lottery Fast Play games are their progressive jackpot prizes. Much like most draw games, the jackpot prize continues to increase until someone wins it. The jackpot on a game called Nest Egg was over $1.3 million when a Butler County player got lucky and won it all.

Good Guyz Mini Mart, at 390 Whitestown Road, sold the winning ticket on April 11. The Nest Egg game is now closed, but other progressive jackpot Fast Play games are available. As of May 9, the jackpot on the game Pennsylvania Progressive ($30) is over $1.5 million.

Fast Play games are available at lottery retailers via self-service vending terminals or at the counter. The games print on demand and play like scratch-offs, except they require no scratching.
