Second Chance Tickets
I buy online because (as a senior citizen) I cannot always get out to play. The PA Lottery is supposed to BENEFIT senior citizens but I noticed that we're left out (NOT ELIGIBLE) to include our online tickets into the SECOND CHANCE TICKET DRAWINGS. I feel discriminated against because (as a senior citizen & also disabled) I am doing the same as anyone walking into an establishment & physically purchasing the ticket. I am spending the same amount of money to buy tickets but not getting equal benefits or rewards. I don't understand the reasoning for this rule & regulation. Thank you.

Much Better!
I’ve been playing this app since its inception. Starting out it was very generic, not mobile phone friendly. But as the updates kept coming it got better and better. The interface is much better. I love that you can buy your daily games. I love the different games you can play. I would like more of the kind like the wizard of Oz. Not the spin and connect ones. There are a lot of those. What I would love to see is being able to use the ticket checker and having the option of putting your winnings on your account balance. Having to take to the store to either cash it in or get more scratch offs is so last year. LOL. You’ll definitely have more people playing if they could transfer their winnings from the winning tickets to your online account. Since all the tickets have QR codes it should be easy to have them void once they have been claimed. Just a thought. Other than that the app is great!

Payments and lack of professionalism
It takes absolutely forever to be able to find out how to cash winnings out on the side. There are not very many options then when you do you have to wait a mandatory five days before they even let you know if you need any documentation and then another three days for them to review the documentation and then another five days after approval for it to be download it into your account. Tell me when you live in Pennsylvania and you can cash your scratch off tickets all your tickets at all the local retailers that sell PA Lottery it is, it could not be more proficient with their withdrawal process and when getting winnings yeah they can take your money with seconds

Needs improvement
All in all a good site. Some improvements needed to fix annoying problems. Hopefully in the future they will be corrected.

Recent update bug
I contacted in app support because several of the in app games stopped working suddenly a couple of weeks ago. The representative from PA lottery indicated she would not contact tech because my internet was the issue. I explained that the issue was right after an application update and had nothing to do with the internet because it works on other devices just not on an iPhone on any network. I confirmed with a friend more recently that said several of their games on the Pa lottery app stopped working on iPhone as well so they just use a different device. Please look at the application and fix the iPhone bug for games which include Press Your Luck. Thank you!

Needs a lot of work
No option for Face ID. Saved password won’t automatically populate. It’s a hassle to login every single time I want to scan a ticket and check it for rewards. I want to open the app, easily scan a ticket once and know if it’s a winner and then have it automatically enter me for the rewards. Why do I have to scan it twice? Also, the ticket scanner button should be prominent on the main page. I shouldn’t have to go into the menu and find it.

Error messages
Constantly getting error messages….Mostly when trying to sign up for a bonus play. As of recently I cannot play any einstants. Screen pops up and then goes play to the screen to play for real money. Take into consideration I am using the mobile app but lets be honest who doesn’t use their phone more than anything. Frustrating because I have cash on there but can’t play.

Every 7-10 minutes after I start winning something the app stops everything with an error message talking bout technical difficulties and I have to actually close the app and sign back in it is so frustrating!! I called several times about this issue and it’s like customer service just laughs at me. I have tried deleting the app and restoring it and the same thing, and even when I play online I have the same issue!!!! I’m fed up!!!

Lousy app
I tried to play the Powerball and it was spinning and spinning and then said, check your email to see if you got numbers. I checked my email and there have been no numbers. I tried to do a live chat and I was in queue number 33 and waited for 45 minutes. When I got down to Number four it disconnected. I reconnected and was put back at the top of the queue and again, when it got down to four it disconnected again. My account is down to $12 from trying to play the Powerball but I have no numbers

Payments and withdrawals
I play multiple online casino games for years; and it take’s literally 30 seconds to deposit any amount of money but more then a week to withdraw your winnings. I think this is ridiculous especially when we’re not talking about a large amount. Idk if it’s the lack of workers, the software, or a combination but it needs to be fixed. I just can’t put any more money into this app.. Update— it’s now been 7 business days and it’s still showing pending smh what a joke.

PA Lottery App
Although it was recently upgraded it still is one of the worst designed apps I’ve ever used! PA Lottery encourages you to use bonus codes on scratch-offs and fast-play games but the explanations they provide for use are very confusing! Also I don’t understand why there’s an expiration date on bonuses earned? I’ve made deposits and was credited bonuses. I didn’t return to the app until a week later and discovered they were gone without any warning!

It’s fun to play in the comfort of your home!!!
It’s really a nice not to have to get dressed, drive 10minutes, & wait in line to play the PA Lottery! This is a new experience for me. I’m enjoying playing in the comfort of my own home, especially on those days when I don’t have the strength or energy to get up and go.

Worst app ever
Literally the worst app I’ve ever used. It’s a shining reflection of the efficacy of the failure that is the PA government. It crashes constantly, logging out your account each time. The UI is awful and feels as if it’s from the 1990’s. I attempted to play the Powerball but the app is trying to convince me that I am not located within the state of PA (when I very clearly am). The features rarely function as intended and the app is constantly telling you to “contact customer support” anytime anything does not properly work. What a nightmare.

Not happy they took my 90 $ bonus away. I put in 100 to have it matched so I could play several days without worrying. It took the bonus money I never spent plus some of my winnings. After only 7 days. I wish I would have known before . I would never have left it go to waste. Don’t offer if your going to take them away. Today and several other times didn’t get my bonus.

Not the same
Although the ticket checker option is quicker than the past versions, there are problems with entering second chance drawings. Had to check the same ticket 3x to get the option to enter second chance drawings. This makes me doubt the accuracy of the ticket checker and I end up going to retailer to check all tickets anyway.

Invasion of privacy! 2 forms of ID to use it! Stupid
They want two forms of ID and they justify it because you can buy lottery on it. It should only be if you want to gamble on it. I can no longer access my VIP, or enter any of my tickets into the second chance. Ticket checker never works. It should only require ID verification sign up when you use the purchase feature. They will never get my birth certificate.

Works horrible after recent update
Unable to enter second chance drawings consistently. It scans the barcode and often goes no further. For everyone that you receive a verification of how many entries, 3 or so attempts result in nothing. I deleted the app and reinstalled 2 times with no improvement. Would give no stars if able to do so.

It used to work
I mainly use the app to scan my tickets and verify if they’re winners or losers. For draw games and instants. I don’t know what happened to it, but most of the time it does not work. It doesn’t matter if I’m on cellular or Wi-Fi, whether I restart the app, or restart the phone. It makes no difference. It just sits there and spins its wheels.

Waste of money
Tried to deposit $30 but said “we didn’t get that” but took the $30 out of my bank, after contacting them they said the money went through and I played it when I didn’t. So they screwed me on $30. You have a 10% chance at winning anything on any game. This app is a joke!

Cannot deposit any money. Endlessly fails. No response to contact form. The contractor should be fired by the state, but maybe someone has been bought off to prevent that. Seems like Scientific Games International Inc is either incompetent or crooked?

Oh NO… NO…Stay away, and it’s a 100% scam run by a reputed government. They Steal Your money and never win any reasonable ransom. Don’t lose; you are hard to earn cash for those who never worked for the USA or never gave any contributions to PA. Please stay away keep your money with you or spend for your best.

The einstant games are obviously fixed. You win .50 then .10, then .40 in one game to add up to $1. In the bonus game, you get 2 whammies and $10. I know that isn’t how it goes every time, but it’s enough to be predictable.

Doesn’t work right
Scanning the tickets doesn’t work properly. I had a powerball and one match and it told me I had no win. This app used to work nicely but since it’s been dolled up it’s useless if it misses any winnings.
