All new Pick 6 with Double Play, more big jackpots, better odds, built-in prize multiplier starting April 5

NEW JERSEY – The New Jersey Lottery announced Thursday it is introducing an all new and improved Pick 6 game.

The changes to New Jersey’s original big jackpot game will now offer players better odds with easier to win jackpots for just $2. The new game will also include a prize multiplier on every ticket that can increase non-jackpot prizes up to 10 times.

The new Pick 6 game will offer better odds with a decrease in the matrix from the current 1-49 pool of numbers to 1-46 resulting in improved overall chances of winning. The price of the new Pick 6 base game has increased to $2 per play. For just an extra $1, a new add-on feature called Double Play™ will give players the chance to win up to $250,000, and other prizes, in an additional drawing held immediately after the regular Pick 6 drawing using the same numbers and multiplier from a player’s Pick 6 ticket!

The new Pick-6 game will still have jackpots starting at $2 million and drawings will continue to be held every Monday and Thursday at approximately 10:57 p.m., with the first new Pick 6 with Double Play™ drawings starting April 7. Sales for all new Pick 6 with Double Play™ start on Tuesday, April 5.

Drawings are available for viewing on the New Jersey Lottery website at
