The Pennsylvania Lottery's Match 6 Lotto jackpot keeps rolling ever higher into record territory. The jackpot for the Monday, Sept. 9, drawing has now grown to $5.3 million.

The current jackpot run started after one ticket matched all six winning numbers in the May 13 drawing.

Match 6 Lotto players should still check their tickets because the game has continued to produce millions of winners while the jackpot has kept rolling.

Since mid-May, Match 6 Lotto has awarded nearly $11.6 million in prizes.

More than 161,700 Match 6 Lotto tickets won prizes totaling nearly $600,000 in Thursday night's drawing, including 55 tickets that each won $1,000.

The current Match 6 Lotto jackpot ranks as the third-largest on record. The second-largest was a $5.8-million payout from the May 3, 2005, drawing. The largest was a $6.9-million prize won in the March 23, 2007, drawing.

The odds of winning the Match 6 Lotto jackpot are approximately 1-in-4.6 million, among the Pennsylvania Lottery's best odds of winning a multimillion-dollar jackpot.

How to Play Match 6 Lotto
: Match 6 tickets cost $2 each. Players can choose six numbers from 1 to 49 or have numbers randomly selected by a computer. The computer will then randomly select an additional two sets of six numbers for three lines of six numbers each, or 18 numbers total. Players can win up to four times on each ticket—once on each of three lines (base play) and by combining all 18 numbers (combined play).

Match 6 Lotto drawings are held on Monday and Thursday evenings.
