In addition to the normal Wednesday and Saturday drawings, PA Lottery officials announced that the multi-state game will also offer drawings on Mondays. The change goes into effect on the Monday, Aug. 23 drawing.
“By adding the Monday night drawing we expect to see faster-growing jackpots, and in turn, an increase in sales as we attract new players,” said Pennsylvania Lottery Executive Director Drew Svitko.”

Another change starting debuting during Monday’s drawing is that Pennsylvania players will also be able to add “Double-Play” to their purchase. Double Play is a new optional feature that, for an additional $1 per play, will give players another chance to win with their Powerball numbers in a separate drawing with a top cash prize of $10 million.
The Double Play drawing will be held after every Powerball drawing. The Double-Play drawing will not be televised, but it will be live-streamed on Powerball.com and available to watch on the PA Lottery’s website.
