Since the launch of Pennsylvania’s online lottery in May, they have offered new players $5 free to play when they sign up. Now they are stepping up their efforts at enticing players to sign up and play. Beginning August 28, there is a brand new deposit bonus available and it’s a pretty big deal.
All PA iLottery players can now get a 100% matching bonus up to a maximum of $100 on their first deposits on the site. Even better, this new bonus works in harmony with the old $5 no deposit bonus.
Get $5 for showing up, get $100 to stay and play!
Updated 1/22/2019: This page has been updated to reflect the latest deposit bonus details.
Taking advantage of PA iLottery’s two bonuses
To get the $5 free signup bonus, simply go to the Pennsylvania online lottery and sign up, using the promo code WINNER when registering.
To get the $100 deposit bonus, you sign into the PA iLottery and click the “My Account” button at the top of the page. From there you can select a deposit method. Be sure to enter the deposit promo code DEP100 when doing this to receive your bonus!
The 100% matching bonus is maximized when you deposit $100, yielding you the $100 deposit bonus once you’ve satisfied the play-through requirements (more below). If you don’t want to deposit this much, you can deposit a lesser amount, too. The minimum is $10, which would yield a $5 deposit bonus.
Earning the bonus
To have the bonus money converted into cash you can withdraw, players must play the eligible deposit + bonus amount through the lottery games at a rate of 10x for every $1 deposited. So, for example, to take full advantage of the deposit bonus, you must play through $2000 (10 x $200). Once this is done, the bonus is converted into cash and put into your real money account.
Making the most of your PA iLottery experience
Putting all your PA iLottery options together, there are three ways savvy players can maximize their experience with the Pennsylvania online lottery while minimizing their exposure to financial risk:
- Play the game demos – Each of the PA iLottery games can be played in “free play” mode. This feature allows players to get a feel for the games and find the ones that are most enjoyable for them. Sure you can’t win anything, but you can’t lose anything either. This is a great way to “get your feet wet” before you try the real thing.
- Take advantage of the free $5 signup bonus – Everyone should do this. When you sign up, simply use the PA online lottery bonus code WINNER. You immediately get a free $5 added to your account to play with.
- Take advantage of the first deposit bonus – If you’re going to play the PA iLottery, you’d be a fool not to do this. When making your initial deposit, use bonus code DEP100 and receive 100% up to $100 on any deposit from $10 to $100.
Doing all these things will help you make the most of your PA iLottery experience.
