The largest Match 6 Lotto jackpot on record was a more than $7.3 million prize won by a ticket sold in Cambria County for the October 3, 2013, drawing. Match 6 Lotto debuted in 2004.
How to Play Match 6 Lotto: Match 6 tickets cost $2 each. Players can choose six numbers from 1 to 49 or have numbers randomly selected by computer. The computer will then randomly select an additional two sets of six numbers, for three lines of six numbers each or 18 numbers total. Players can win up to four times on each ticket – once on each of three lines (base play) and by combining all 18 numbers (combined play).
Match 6 Lotto drawings are held on Monday and Thursday evenings.
