In case you haven’t noticed, there have been a bunch of new games that have been added to the PA Lottery of late. Whether it’s the introduction of Keno earlier this spring or the more recent launch of Xpress Sports, you have more choices than ever as a PA Lottery player.
To celebrate the recent launch of these games, the PA Lottery is holding live events at participating lottery retailers to get the word out about the games and even give players a chance to earn some free extra prizes.
Live events are currently scheduled to run during select times from September 20th through the end of October. To see if an event is being held near you, refer to the PA Lottery Live Event Schedule
Details of PA Lottery Live Events
To kick things off “Wheel of Fortune” scratch events will be held in Williamsport and Hanover on September 20th and September 21st.
For these events, players will have a chance to win merchandise or a free Powerball coupon. Show up to the Williamsport Wegmans Food Markets 78 and the Hanover Home Association during the designated times to purchase a $5 or $10 Wheel of Fortune scratch off.
With a $5 purchase, players will get one spin of the wheel for a chance to win an additional prize; players making a $10 purchase will get two spins of the wheel.
Keno and Xpress Live Events
Also starting on September 20th and running through October 28th, Keno and Xpress Sports live events will be held in dozens of cities across Pennsylvania. If you have been thinking about trying out these games, now might be a good opportunity to play.
Players visiting participating PA Lottery retailers during the special live events, will get an extra incentive. Players will receive a chance to spin the wheel for free for a chance to win Free Keno or Xpress Sports plays.
How Keno and Xpress Sports work
Both Keno and Xpress Sports virtual sports are games that can be played at PA lottery retailers. The games are more interactive — and arguably more engaging — than scratch-offs and fast-play games that are more well-known as PA Lottery games.
With Keno games, choose up to ten spots to try to match in an upcoming Keno game at any a participating lottery retailer to win up to $100,000 when matching all ten numbers. Add a Keno Multiplier to win even larger prizes.
Xpress Sports — also known as simulated virtual sports — come in two different forms: Xpress Football and Xpress Car Racing. Try to predict the outcome of the race or drive by purchasing a ticket at any lottery retailer and then watching the outcome live to win cash prizes up to $250 on a $1 play.
