The New Jersey Lottery made its debut in 1971, the same year when Walt Disney World opened, Intel launched the microprocessor, and “All In The Family” aired its pilot episode. Since then, NJ Lottery has been inspiring players to give their dreams a chance and take a chance at its massive jackpots. Around 81.5% NJ residents voted and overwhelmingly approved the establishment of a state lottery.

As with other state lotteries, the majority of its revenue goes to education and other charitable causes, including the construction and renovation of public schools, support for the disabled, psychiatric hospitals and most recently, homes for injured veterans. About 57% of its proceeds are dedicated for prizes, 34% sent to state organisations, 5.5% are given to retailers as commission, 2% allotted to seller’s fees, and 1% goes to administrative costs. Over the years, the NJ Lottery has helped in raising more than $21 billion for various charities.

On May 1980, the Pick 6 Lotto was introduced. After a successful test of computerised sales network of roughly 2,000 agents, sales began, and tickets were sold for $1. An extra feature of the game is a huge bonus drawing with cash prizes up to $100,000. The Pick 6 Lotto was intended to help fund educational programs for the Garden State.

The following year, a lucky fellow named Manuel Collada from Hillside, NJ became the first-ever Pick 6 Lotto millionaire when he won a $1.8 million cash prize. Also, one of the biggest Pick 6 Lotto jackpot, amounting to $48.9 million, was won by a lucky couple in February 2001.

Since its first drawing, the Pick 6 Lotto underwent some variations in format, and several updates include a higher ball pool and changes to the prizes. One of its early changes began in June 1984 when the game matrix grew from 6 out of 36 to 6 out of 39 numbers.

Then, the Pick 6 bonus was raised to $1 million. After two years, the NJ Lottery Commission approved changing the number base from 6 out of 39 to 6 out of 42, and a second weekly drawing was added. On January 1989, the Pick 6 Lotto expanded from 42 to 46 numbers and the Lottery Commission established Sunday draws for its two daily games, Pick 3 and Pick 4.

One of the things that make the Pick 6 so popular until today is the $1 price tag that has remained after all these years. In fact, cumulative sales of the Pick 6 Lotto passed the $1-billion-mark way back in 1986.

How to play

Playing the Pick 6 Lotto is fun and easy. You can go to the nearest authorised retailer or play online. Just choose six numbers ranging from 1 to 49. The top prize starts at $2 million with no rollover or jackpot cap. Then it increases by $100,000 with each rollover.

There are four prize categories in the lottery, and you can join with a five-line play slip. You have the option to use Quick Pick, a random number generator if you don’t want to choose the numbers yourself. If three or more of your numbers matches the numbers drawn, then you win a prize.

The Garden State requires the Lottery to withhold a state tax of 25% on wins more than $5,000 while non-U.S. residents must pay a 30% tax on all winnings more than $600. There is also an additional 3% tax that applies for all wins of more than $10,000 regardless of the prize or location of residence.

The NJ Pick 6 Lotto draws happen every Monday and Thursday at approximately 19:56 EST and sales close three hours before the draw. You can check the results online after the draw. Winners have 12 months to claim their prizes and can choose to have prizes paid out in a cash lump sum or an annuity.

New Jersey Pick 6 XTRA

The original NJ Lottery game now comes with an extra feature and gives players the best odds to win big. Prizes start at $2 million and can increase from there. You can also win cash prizes for matching only three numbers.

Choose six numbers between 1 to 49 or have the lottery computer to randomly generate numbers for you. Just ask the retailer for a Quick Pick. If you’re using a play slip, just mark the Quick Pick circle. Each Pick 6 play costs only $1.

To add the XTRA feature, just mark the circle for it and add an extra $1 for each play to increase non-jackpot prizes and get a chance to win $2 for matching two numbers.
