Pennsylvania Lottery to Go Online in May

The Pennsylvania Lottery will begin selling different draw games online in May, with “virtual sports monitor” games to be added in June.

The Pennsylvania Lottery announced that it will launch its online lottery games in May, first with online versions of various draw games. In June, the lo0ttery will add “virtual sports monitor games,” which are fast-draw lottery games offered in four- to five-minute intervals, 24 hours a day.

For the virtual sports games, bettors fill out lottery slips as normal, and an animated sport is then played out on video monitors to decide the winner. The idea is to have businesses like convenience stores and bars become retailers and show the games on a monitor.

The lottery also is going live with daily online keno games.
