    Lottery players in our area have two new ways to win big.

    Tickets for the Mega Millions lottery are now on sale for the first time in Pennsylvania. Area residents only used to be able to get in on the action in the Garden State and Delaware.

    Mega Millions drawings are held on Tuesday and Friday nights.

    And people in New Jersey can now play Powerball on Wednesday and Saturday nights.

    Revenues earned from Powerball sales will benefit the cash-strapped state treasury, say state officials.
