The last time a player won $100,000 in the PA Online Lottery was in December when a player from Northumberland Country won $100,000 while playing Super Gems. The three-month dry spell ended with the first six-figure of 2019, when a player won a $100,000 prize on March 10th while playing Rainbow Fortune, one of the most popular games of the month.
The win marked the fourth time that a player had hit a $100,000 prize since the PA Online Lottery launched in May 2018. The other previous wins came while playing Super Cash Buster Extreme and Dabloons. Since the PA Lottery opened nearly a year ago over $210 million in winnings have been paid out, including $28 million just last month.
Prize hit during Lucky Sunday Cashback
The Rainbow Fortunes win came on March 10th while the Lucky Sunday promotion was running. Lucky Sunday awards 25% in cashback for “Lucky-themed” games each Sunday during March with eligible games including Fast Buck Lucky and Rainbow Fortunes. Cashback is offered for predetermined games on select days, oftentimes with cashback paid of 10%-25% based on loses.
The Rainbow Fortunes big win came from a player playing from Washington County, who was making a $10 play.
Rainbow Fortunes popularity increases during March
Rainbow Fortunes is a popular match-style game that includes two mini-games and features a St. Patrick’s Day theme that includes shamrocks, pots of gold and lucky horseshoes.
Players that match 3 or more symbols horizontally, vertically or diagonally will receive a designated prize. Large prizes come with matching four or five symbols in a row. A maximum prize is awarded of 1,000x your play with matching five blue diamonds in a row.
