New Jersey Lottery’s Pick 3 lottery game allows players to select three numbers between 000 and 999 for an initial minimum bet of $0.50 and can be found throughout New Jersey as well as online. Odds of success vary based on which bet type is selected ranging from 1 in 10 up to 1 in 1000 with maximum prize winnings reaching $500.00.
The lottery’s website provides players with plenty of useful information for playing their games, such as how to buy tickets and recent winning numbers. Furthermore, an FAQ section answers frequently asked questions and provides tips on increasing chances of prize wins.
To claim their prize, players must submit a claim form and copy of their winning ticket for review by the New Jersey Lottery. Once submitted, players must also sign and certify they are the owner. Afterward, any award not claimed within 180 days will become vacant and therefore uncollectible.
New Jersey lottery games cover an array of options, from multi-state Powerball and Mega Millions to local Pick 3, Midday, Jersey Cash 5 Xtra games as well as scratch-offs and instant games.
The New Jersey Lottery’s Pick 6 and Cash4Life jackpots are some of the highest in the country, offering maximum prizes of $250,000 and $500,000 respectively. Other lotteries may offer smaller jackpots ranging from $25-$25,000. Additionally, prizes are given out for matching one or two numbers as well as larger combinations like six or seven identical ones if applicable.
Notable United States lotteries include Powerball, Mega Millions and Multi-State Lottery Association (MUSL) lotteries – these lotteries do not operate by New Jersey state but offer similar prize levels and rules to what the New Jersey Lottery provides.
The New Jersey Lottery provides five different play styles for its Pick-3 game: straight, box, pairs, wheel and various bets as detailed on its Pick-3 Bet Chart. Players can select either Pick-3 with FIREBALL for increased chances of victory, or add $1 to their ticket price for an Instant Match ticket that can win them up to $500 instantly! New Jersey Lottery drawings take place twice daily except during holidays. At approximately 7:56 PM and 12:59 PM respectively, winners of evening drawings are typically available here shortly after. State withholding taxes are deducted from prizes awarded; this will result in recipients of winning tickets being provided a form W-2G from the lottery indicating how much tax was withheld from their prizes.
