For the internet instant games (also referred to as eInstants), the cost of play varies by game. You can also try out games for free in "Demo Play" mode, but demo games do not pay prizes (Note: You need a registered PA iLottery account to try "Demo Play"). When you are ready to play for real money, simply create your PA iLottery account and select a deposit method.
A ticket purchased online for Powerball® and Mega Millions® costs the same as a ticket purchased at a PA Lottery retailer. The base cost for each is $2 per play. You can add the Power Play® option or the Megaplier® option for an extra $1 per play. Powerball also offers a Double Play® option for an additional $1 per play.
Be sure to review the chances of winning and please play responsibly.
