What are the odds? 2 tickets sold at same Morris County tavern hit $4.9M Pick-6 jackpot

ROCKAWAY, NJ (Morris County)  – The New Jersey Lottery is happy to announce the $4.9 million Pick-6 jackpot has been hit by two tickets in Morris County. Both tickets matched all six numbers drawn for the Monday, May 13, drawing.

The winning tickets were sold at Mill Lane Tavern, located at 8 Mill Lane, in Rockaway. The lucky retailer will receive two $10,000 bonuses, one for selling each winning ticket.

The winning numbers for the Monday, May 13, drawing were: 02, 03, 04, 12, 20 and 26.

“Congratulations to our latest Pick-6 winners! Pick-6 jackpots are always exciting for us, and it is rare to see two jackpot-winning tickets sold at the same store. This could be one lucky player that decided to double-down on their ticket or two separate players with shared luck at the same store,” said Executive Director James Carey. “Many players feel lucky with family birthdays, anniversaries, and other days on the calendar. When the drawn numbers are all under 30, we expect a lot of winners. Last night, in addition to the two jackpot tickets, 18 other players match five out of six numbers, with 12 of them multiplying their prizes from $766 to $3,064.”

The jackpot will reset to $2 million for the next drawing that will be held on Thursday, May 16.
