The Pennsylvania Lottery is now providing players with Lottery news and winning numbers directly to their mobile phones through text messages.
“Following our debut in social media and the introduction of our mobile website this past summer, text messages are our newest tool to help on-the-go players stay connected with the Lottery,” said Todd Rucci, Lottery’s executive director.
Subscribers can receive alerts about winning numbers, promotional offers, instant game announcements and jackpot alerts. Players can customize the text alerts they receive based on game and jackpot level. In addition to providing automated winning number and jackpot messages, the text service enables players to be the first to learn of new games and special offers from the Lottery.
To subscribe to Lottery text message alerts, visit www.palottery.com and join the VIP Players club, which is free to join and provides an online forum through which players can receive the latest Lottery news.
Although the Lottery does not charge for these alerts, standard text message rates and data charges may apply. Players are encouraged to review their wireless service plans and consult with service providers before subscribing to Lottery texts.
