The Pennsylvania Lottery is the only state lottery that dedicates all its proceeds to programs that benefit older residents in the state. Since 1972, the Pennsylvania Lottery has contributed over $35.1 billion to support Pennsylvania's senior population.

These funds go towards property tax and rent rebates, essential transportation services, care services, prescription drug assistance, and local services like senior centers and meal programs. So, when you play Mega Millions, you're not just playing for yourself; you're also helping to ensure a brighter future for Pennsylvania's senior citizens.
