Pennsylvania Lottery Press Secretary Ewa Dworakowski told PennLive on Friday that the lottery has not seen an uptick in sales, however, in the days since the spread of the coronavirus pandemic has shut down almost everything besides gas stations, grocery stores, pharmacies, hospitals, auto shops, banks, and a shortlist of other places that Gov. Tom Wolf refers to as “life-sustaining," many of which happen to be lottery retailers.
“Lottery sales typically rise and fall with retail sales,” Dwoarakowski said. “Because of this fact, we are seeing our traditional sales soften a bit during this unprecedented situation as non-essential businesses close and Pennsylvanians comply with the Governor’s request to stay home.”
Those hoping to participate in Saturday’s Powerball drawing, which has an estimated jackpot of $140 million, can still do so while following the pleas of Wolf and health secretary Rachel Levine to stay home by purchasing a ticket on the lottery’s mobile app. And, those who do venture out can expect to find scratch-offs and the other games the lottery has always offered, as there are currently no concerns about supply chain, delivery, or manufacturing issues.
