Feeling Lucky? Play St. Patrick’s Lottery Games
Whether you’re Irish all year-round, or just on St. Patrick’s Day, try your luck at these seasonal lottery games! Remember, you can go for the gold twice, with second-chance drawings.
When it comes to the lottery, PowerBall and MegaMillions cause all the hoopla, especially when those jackpots start to hit million-dollar or even billion-dollar levels.
But the vast majority of people who win the lottery do so playing daily games, including scratch-offs.
St. Patrick’s-themed games appeal to everyone: the real Irish, and those who are Irish-for-a-day on March 17. This year marks the first time the Pennsylvania Lottery has launched seasonally-themed iLottery games leading up to the holiday.
“Our players enthusiastically embrace their seasons and holidays, and that’s why our seasonal games do so well,” said lottery spokeswoman Eva Dworakowski.
Among the most popular Irish-themed games is Clover Ca$h, a match 3-style game that gives you the chance to unlock five free games. All prizes won during the free-game rounds are multiplied 5x, with a top prize of $200,000. Now, that will have you seeing green!
“We’ll likely see Clover Ca$h remain on sale past March 17, because it features play symbols that are recognized as ‘lucky’ throughout the year,” said Dworakowski. “We also offer the St. Patrick’s Day-themed online game Double Your Luck,” with a top prize of $60,000, and a $5 Irish-themed game, Dublin Dollars, offers 10 top prizes of $50,000.
Sign up to play the Pennsylvania Lottery online, make your first deposit, and get a free Instant Game of Treetop Treasures and up to $100 free. The fun begins as soon as you register!
Don’t forget, members of the lottery’s VIP Players Club can submit non-winning St. Patrick’s Day-themed scratch-offs into the Go for the Green Second-Chance Drawing, for a chance to win up to $17,000! To win, you must enter by 11:59 p.m. ET, March 26.
