Oct. 1, 2013 – Nobody playing Pennsylvania’s Match 6 Lotto last night, Sept. 30, was able to match all six numbers drawn, continuing the record-high run for the Match 6 jackpot.
When the Match 6 jackpot rolled over to $7 million last Thursday night it officially became the highest jackpot in the game’s history, inching past the previous record of $6.9 million from 2007.
Now sitting at $7.3 million ahead of the Thursday, October 3 drawing, the Match 6 jackpot is $400,000 past the six-year-old record.
While nobody was able to match all six numbers drawn last night, more than 185,000 Match 6 players won one of the game’s prizes, collectively raking in almost $700,000.
Match 6 Lotto offers the best odds of winning a multi-million dollar jackpot out of any of Pennsylvania’s games, so the enormous prize, which has been growing since May 13, is bound to fall.
Pennsylvania’s Match 6 game costs $2 to play, and for every $2 players get three chances to win.
Whether you choose your own numbers or let the computer choose them for you, each $2 ticket comes with two extra sets of six numbers. With the best odds and two free chances to win the record jackpot for yourself, you definitely don’t want to miss your shot before Thursday night.
