New Jersey Winning Numbers

World Lotteries

New Jersey Lottery Games

Founded in November 1969, the New Jersey Lottery is one of the oldest lottery operators in the United States. This Lottery has multi-jurisdictional and state-only lotteries, with players having the opportunity to win cash prizes many times a day.

Proceeds from New Jersey lottery games are used to support educational programs and other institutions across the state, with profits having been used to support pensions for public sector workers across New Jersey since 2018.

Powerball

Powerball is a world-famous lottery renowned for its long odds and often lucrative jackpots.

Powerball tickets cost $2.00, with players choosing five numbers between 1 and 69 plus a Powerball number between 1 and 26. Players can choose numbers manually or go for a Quick Pick if they wish. A Power Play option is also available, costing $1.00 for the chance to multiply non-jackpot prizes by up to 10 times.

Mega Millions

Mega Millions is another world-renowned lottery that’s even harder to win than Powerball, but with a very similar format.

As with Powerball, tickets cost $2.00.

Players must choose five numbers between 1 and 70 and a Mega Ball number between 1 and 25, with a Quick Pick option also available for those wishing to play with random selections. Mega Millions has an additional Megaplier option for $1.00, for the chance to multiply non-jackpot prizes by up to 10 times.

Cash4Life

Cash4Life is a popular lottery game played across nine states, giving players the chance to win $1,000 a day (paid out as $365,000 annually) for the rest of their lives, or the option to take a $7 million-dollar lump sum.

Tickets cost $2.00, with players choosing five main numbers from 1 to 60 and a Cash Ball number between 1 and 4. Quick Pick is also available for those who prefer to play with random selections.

Pick-6

Pick-6 is a traditional 6-from-49 lottery, with tickets costing $1.00.

Players choose six numbers from 1 to 49 or can go for a Quick Pick for randomly chosen selections. Participants can add XTRA to their ticket for $1.00, for an additional prize tier and an increase in all non-jackpot prizes.

Quick Draw

Quick Draw is a Keno-style lottery with multiple entry options, including the ability to choose initial stakes.

Players must first decide on how many numbers to match from one to 10, before choosing the relevant number of selections between 1 and 80. While Quick Pick is available for participants who wish to play with random selections, players can also decide whether to stake $1.00, $2.00, $3.00, $4.00, $5.00 or $10, with this amount also acting as the prize multiplier.

Finally, participants can add BULLSEYE to their tickets to increase the chances of winning and the possibility of landing bigger prizes, for double the initial stake.

Jersey Cash 5

Jersey Cash 5 is a straightforward lottery that costs $1.00 to enter.

Players must choose five numbers from 1 to 45, or can go for a Quick Pick for randomly chosen selections. Participants can add XTRA to their ticket for $1.00, to increase non-jackpot prizes by the randomly selected multiplier during each draw.

For a further $1.00, participants can add Instant Match to their ticket for the chance to win up to $500 on the spot.

Cash Pop

Cash Pop is a unique lottery in which every available number can be chosen to ensure a potential win, although doing this would result in a loss due to how game prizes are calculated.

To enter Cash Pop, choose up to 15 numbers between 1 and 15 followed by a $1.00, $2.00, $5.00 or $10 stake per number, resulting in a ticket price that could be anything from $1.00 to $150!

The prize value is printed on the ticket at random during purchase, with a player with a $150 entry potentially winning as little as $50, while a stake of just $1 could win up to $250!

Pick-4

There are multiple entry options in Pick-4, with players able to choose stakes of $0.50, $1.00, $2.00, $3.00, $4.00 or $5.00.

Players must choose four numbers from 0 to 9 and, because each number is chosen independently, the same number can be chosen repeatedly if desired. Participants then choose whether to bet on matching numbers in the order drawn, in any order, or whether to split their stake equally between both options.

There is also the option to choose a Wheel entry, for a ticket with every possible combination of the four player-chosen numbers.

Participants can also wager against matching either the first or second pair of numbers drawn. Finally, players can add FIREBALL to their ticket to double the stake. The FIREBALL number is drawn each game and can be used as a replacement number if the result is only one digit from winning a prize. Participants should note that while FIREBALL improves prize-winning odds, prizes will be paid out at reduced values.

Pick-3

In Pick-3, players can choose stakes of $0.50, $1.00, $2.00, $3.00, $4.00 or $5.00.

Players must choose three numbers from 0 to 9, and because each number is chosen independently, the same number can be chosen repeatedly if desired. Participants then choose whether to bet on matching numbers in the order drawn, in any order, or to split their stake equally between both options.

There is also the option to choose a Wheel entry, for a ticket with every possible combination of the three chosen numbers.

Participants can also wager against matching either the first or second pair of numbers drawn, or the first and third numbers drawn. Finally, players can add FIREBALL to their ticket to double the original stake. The FIREBALL number is drawn each game and can be used as a replacement number when only one digit away from winning a prize. Participants should note that while FIREBALL improves prize-winning odds, prizes will be paid out at reduced values.
