The PA iLottery is capping off a successful 2018 with the launch of the $100,000 Holiday Countdown, a series of weekly drawings that players can participate in when playing the iLottery during the month of December.
As far as we can see this is the largest promotion to be associated with the PA iLottery since it went live in May and thus a great opportunity for those who have been waiting to play.
Here’s how to qualify for the Holiday Countdown
From now until the end of December, PA Online Lottery players can participate in the $100,000 Holiday Countdown for a chance to win up to $10,000 per week.
There are three basic requirements to participate:
- Players must be registered in the PA Online Lottery
- A “claim” must be made to opt-in to the promotion
- A deposit of at least $25 is required to receive an entry into the drawing
- You must play your deposit 1x on the day of deposit
Registering for the PA iLottery
If you do not yet have an account, you will need to register for the iLottery to participate. New players are eligible to receive a free $5 no deposit bonus when registering with bonus code WINNER.
Claim the Holiday Countdown promo
The Holiday Countdown promotion is only available to players who specifically opt-in to the promotion. To do so, you must go to your account, find the $100,000 Holiday Countdown offer and “caim” the offer.
Make your deposit
The second part of qualifying for the $100,000 Holiday Countdown promotion is to make a deposit of at least $25 during one of the promotion periods (see the prize chart below for specific details on the drawing you will be eligible for).
Players will receive a number of entries based on their deposit amount:
- 1 entry for a $25-$49 deposit
- 2 entries for a $50-$99 deposit
- 8 entries for a deposit of at least $100
Play the iLottery games
Finally, to be eligible for the drawing, you must play the iLottery games on the same day of your deposit in order to receive your entries. The amount you play must be equal to or greater than your deposit.
For example, if you deposit $100 on a Tuesday, you will need to play with all $100 on any PA iLottery game on that day to receive your entries.
In addition to the Holiday Countdown, new depositors are also eligible to receive a 100% up to $100 first deposit bonus when using bonus code DEP50.
Details on the Holiday Countdown Prizes
Now the fun part. Those who meet all criteria during the week will be eligible for that week’s drawing, where you have a chance to be one of the lucky players to win $10,000. Many smaller prizes are also available. Given the requirements, there may not be a large number of players participating, meaning the value of this promotion could be interesting for PA Online Lottery players.
|Qualification Period (all times ET)||Winners Revealed||Prizes|
|November 28th to December 4th||December 7th||1 $10,000 winner, 100 $100 winners|
|December 5th to December 11th||December 14th||1 $10,000 winner, 100 $100 winners|

By the way, if you meet the requirements during a given week, you will only be entered into the drawing for that week. If you wish to participate in drawings during subsequent weeks, you must meet all the criteria for that week.
