What is NJ Pick 6?

NJ Pick 6 is a twice weekly evening draw game where you try to pick six numbers between 1 and 49 that match the winning numbers drawn to win a cash prize.  You can also select Quick Pick and the random number generator will choose the numbers for you. 

Tickets cost $1 per play and players can choose how they want to be paid (cash option or annuity) if they win the jackpot.  NJ Pick 6 drawings are held every Monday and Thursday.  All New Jersey State Lottery results are available immediately after each drawing.

Add Xtra (optional) to your play to increase non-jackpot prizes.  Xtra costs an additional $1 per play.  If you match three or more of the Pick 6 numbers drawn, your prizes, excluding the jackpot, will be multiplied by the Xtra number.  If you match only two numbers, you win a $2 prize.

What are the NJ Pick 6 Draw Times?

Sales cut-off time is 10:53 pm ET the day of the drawing.  Approximately 4 minutes prior to draw time.
