Pick 2

Pick 2 is a draw game from the Pennsylvania Lottery with a top prize of $50 and drawings twice a day. There are a variety of play types so you’ll never get bored, and the Wild Ball add-on offers even more ways to win.

The Day draw is held at 1:35 pm ET seven days a week. Sales close at 1:05 pm, so be sure to get your tickets before then to enter that day’s draw. The Evening draw takes place daily at 6:59 pm ET. To enter that night’s draw, purchase your tickets before sales end at 6:57 pm.

How to Play

You can play up to five times on your playslip – each panel is a separate play and costs $1.00. Simply choose two numbers from 0 through 9. You can also use Quick Pick to have your numbers randomly generated for the next draw. Quick Pick numbers are automatically a Straight play unless you choose another type.

Choose your play type: Straight, Box, Straight/Box, Super Straight, Front Digit, or Back Digit.

Decide which drawings to play: Day, Evening, or both.

Advance Play lets you play your favorite numbers for up to seven consecutive Day and Evening draws.

Wild Ball

Add the new Wild Ball option for even more chances to win. A one-digit Wild Ball number is randomly chosen before each Day and Evening draw. The Wild Ball number can replace one of the winning numbers that was drawn to give you a winning selection. Wild Ball doubles the cost of your play type and the payouts are also different.

Prizes and Odds of Winning

If you match both the Pick 2 numbers drawn, you can win up to the top prize of $50. The table below shows the prize payouts and odds for each play style. Note that although the cost is $1.00 per play, the total cost for the Super Straight or Straight/Box play types is $2.00, because they are combined plays ($1.00 per play times two plays).

Scroll down to the second table to see Pick 2 prizes and odds with the Wild Ball option added.

Pennsylvania Lottery FAQs

How long does it take to receive PA Lottery winnings?

Prizes of up to $2,500 can be paid out on the spot by an authorized Pennsylvania Lottery retailer. Larger prizes or multi-state game prizes such as Powerball or Mega Millions require a claims form and take longer to process. Prize checks will typically arrive in four to six weeks (or less) after the claim has been received and validated at lottery headquarters. Some claims submitted in December cannot be processed until January, which can delay the process.

How much will I pay in taxes if I win the PA lottery?

According to the PA Lottery, lottery prizes are taxable income under federal and state law. For prizes of $600 or more, winners must complete W-2G form from the lottery to report winnings and submit them to the IRS. For prizes over $5,000, the lottery will withhold the minimum amount of applicable taxes before sending winners their check. Total tax liability depends on income, deductions, exemptions, and other factors, so winners should consult with a qualified tax professional.

Can I remain anonymous if I win the lottery in Pennsylvania?

No, the names of winners and their prize amounts are considered a matter of public record in Pennsylvania and most states.
