History of the New Jersey Lottery
The New Jersey Lottery has been making dreams come true for lucky winners since its first ticket was sold on December 16th, 1970. In March 1971, a lucky couple from West Caldwell won the first Millionaire drawing. In May 1999, the New Jersey Lottery joined The Big Game, a multi-state lottery which later became Mega Millions, and began selling Powerball tickets in 2010.
Proceeds from ticket sales directly benefit educational institutions, small businesses, veterans' services and other valuable initiatives. Since the inception of the New Jersey Lottery, over $22 billion has been allocated for worthy causes throughout the Garden State. When you play games like Pick 6, Mega Millions and Powerball, everyone in New Jersey is a winner!

Cash4Life is a new lottery game that was launched on Friday June 13th 2014 and is offered by the New Jersey Lottery as well as the lotteries of New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia. The game gives players the chance to win up to $1,000 a day for life in addition to a number of other prizes. Tickets cost $2 each and players can choose to play between one and five games or schedule entries for eight advance drawings at the time of their purchase. Players pick five numbers from 1 to 60 as well as a Cash Ball from 1 to 4. Cash4Life drawings take place at 9:00 PM EST on Mondays and Thursdays. Here's a breakdown of the prizes and the odds of winning:
|Prize||Winning Numbers Matched||Odds of Winning||Prize Amount|
|First Prize||5 plus Cash Ball||1 in 21,846,048||$1,000 a day for life|

Pick-6 XTRA is a popular draw game that offers great jackpots to New Jersey lottery fans. The jackpot starts at $2 million and will roll over and increase in value until a player matches all six main numbers drawn to win the top prize. Drawings are held at 7:58 PM on Mondays and Thursdays.
Prize amounts vary because they are calculated on a pari-mutuel basis, meaning that the number of tickets that match the winning numbers will have a direct effect on the cash prizes distributed to winners. There is a fixed prize of $3 for matching three of the six numbers drawn.
Here's a breakdown of the prizes:
|Numbers Matched||Prize Tier||Estimated Prize Value||Odds of Winning|
|6 out of 6||Jackpot||N/A||1 in 13,983,816|
|5 out of 6||Second Prize||$2,700||1 in 54,201|
|4 out of 6||Third Prize||$56||1 in 1,032|
|3 out of 6||Fourth Prize||$3||1 in 57|
|Odds of winning any Pick-6 prize are approximately 1 in 54|
In 2015, the game was changed and the XTRA feature was added to Pick-6. For an additional $1 per line, players can increase the value of any non-jackpot prizes they might win. Players who match two Pick-6 numbers will win $2 across all XTRA prize tiers. The XTRA number drawn is a multiplier, meaning that if the number drawn is 4, then all non-jackpot prizes are multiplied by that amount. Here's how it works, based on estimated prize amounts for the main Pick-6 game:
|Match||XTRA x2||XTRA x3||XTRA x4||XTRA x5|
|5 out of 6||$5,400||$8,100||$10,800||$13,500|
|4 out of 6||$112||$168||$224||$280|
|3 out of 6||$6||$9||$12||$15|
|2 out of 6||$2||$2||$2||$2|
Jersey Cash 5 XTRA is a quick little draw game that takes place seven days a week with the jackpot starting at $75,000! All you have to do is pay $1 per line and pick five numbers from 1 to 43 or have five numbers randomly generated for you. If you're feeling lucky, you can pay an extra $1 and add the Instant Match option to your ticket, which could see you rake in up to $500 straight away!
If no one wins the jackpot, the amount is rolled over into the top prize for next day's drawing. Here's a breakdown of the prizes as well as the odds of winning:
|Numbers Matched||Prize Tier||Odds of Winning||Estimated Prize|
|5 out of 5||Jackpot||1 in 962,598||Jackpot|
|4 out of 5||Second Prize||1 in 5,066||$500|
|3 out of 5||Third Prize||1 in 137||$15|
|Odds of winning any Cash 5 prize are approximately 1 in 133 without the XTRA option|
By paying $2 per line, players can add the XTRA feature to their Cash 5 game to increase the value of any non-jackpot prizes won. The XTRA number drawn is a multiplier, so if the number 2 is drawn then all match 3 and match 4 prizes are doubled, and this continues right up to a multiplier of 5. The XTRA option also gives players an instant win of $2.00 for matching just two numbers. Here's how it looks:
|Match||XTRA x2||XTRA x3||XTRA x4||XTRA x5|
|5 out of 5||Jackpot||Jackpot||Jackpot||Jackpot|
|4 out of 5||$1,000||$1,500||$2,000||$2,500|
|3 out of 5||$30||$45||$60||$75|
|2 out of 5||$2||$2||$2||$2|
|Odds of winning any Cash 5 prize are approximately 1 in 11 with the XTRA option|
Want to win right away without waiting for those pesky numbers to come out? You can buy an Instant Match option for an extra $1 on any Pick 3, Pick 4 or Jersey Cash 5 game and have the chance to win up to $500 instantly! You'll be given a ticket with three Instant Match numbers and if these match any of your lottery numbers you'll snag a prize! The odds of winning any Instant Match prize are approximately one in 7.
Instant win games give players a chance to experience the fun of a prize win right after buying a ticket. These games can be purchased from any official New Jersey Lottery retailer and range in price from $1 to $10 often offering top prizes that rival the jackpots of draw games. These instant win games are a great treat and make for excellent stocking stuffers, birthday presents and surprise gifts.
Claiming New Jersey Lottery Prizes
Claiming prizes comes with its own set of rules. If you win any amount up to $599.50, you should be able to redeem it at an authorized New Jersey Lottery retailer. Have you won over $600? Congrats! You'll need to fill out a claim form if you want to redeem it and get your winnings, and if you're lucky enough to win over $5,000 then you'll be subject to federal withholding taxes on the amount, which will affect the size of your check. If you win more than $10,000, the prize will also be subject to a state tax of three percent.
The Fine Print
Playing New Jersey Lottery games is a lot of fun, but you need to be at least 18 years old to take part.
The only way to win any New Jersey Lottery prize is to buy a ticket for a specific game. If anyone contacts you unexpectedly and tells you that you've won a lottery prize, then you are most likely being set up for a scam. Visit the scams page for tips on identifying and avoiding lottery scams.
