7th BIGGEST JACKPOT IN 18 YEARS PICK-6 JACKPOT IS NOW AT $28.6 MILLION
TRENTON (Dec. 7, 2018) – Without a winner for last night’s drawing, the jackpot for the New Jersey Lottery’s Pick 6 Lotto game has rolled to $28.6 million ($20.1 cash option). The absence of a top-prize winner places New Jersey’s Pick 6 Lotto among the top ten largest potential jackpot prizes in the last 18 years. The next drawing for Pick 6 will be held on Monday, Dec. 10th at 7:57 pm.
The game’s jackpot has grown to the largest up for grabs since 2004, so players are urged to get a ticket and get in the game that offers prizes at all levels and a chance to end 2018 as a multi-millionaire.
December 6th’s drawing produced nine winners of $5,426 all of whom matched five out of six white balls drawn. One of those tickets was purchased with XTRA, multiplying the prize to $10,852. Acting Executive Director James Carey announced that there were 976,736 tickets purchased for the drawing and of those sold, thousands were prizewinners!
The winning numbers for the Thursday, Dec. 6th drawing were: 08, 15, 18, 33, 34, and 39. The XTRA Multiplier was: 02. By adding XTRA for an additional $1.00 per play, winners are able to multiply their non-jackpot prizes by the XTRA number drawn.
For correctly matching four numbers, 791 ticketholders won $59 each and 109 others won $118 each with the addition of XTRA. Moreover, for correctly matching three numbers 14,339 ticketholders won $3.00 each and 1,836 others won $6 each with the addition of XTRA.
