Extra $5.00 = Big Money
Scratch-Offs Players Received More Than $100.9 Million in Prizes in September
TRENTON (Nov. 14, 2019) – Thomas A. of Pitman in Gloucester County is a steady New Jersey Lottery player. He plays a little bit of everything from draw games to Scratch-Offs for fun. On his way into work, Thomas stopped by his regular retailer to pick up a few things and his lottery tickets for the week. Thomas stated that he normally likes playing the bigger Scratch-Offs, but since he had $5 left over, he bought a High Card Poker ticket. He scratched off all of the tickets while in the store and, to his surprise, the $5 ticket was a big winner! Thomas had just won $150,000 – he said it was “just luck” that he picked that game.
Although this was Thomas' first visit to Lottery Headquarters, this was his second big win! He had won $100,000 on a Scratch-Off in Pennsylvania a few years ago. When Thomas knew he had won, he remained calm but was very happy. He plans on paying off his car and going on vacation with his winnings.
The New Jersey Lottery retailer that sold the winning ticket was Pitman Convenience Store, 308 South Broadway, Pitman in Gloucester County.
