New Jersey Lottery
The journey of New Jersey's lottery began in 1970 when it launched its first weekly jackpot game. Over the years, the state introduced numerous game options including daily draws and instant-win games.
In 1999, New Jersey became a participant in the multi-state lottery, initially known as The Big Game, but later rebranded as Mega Millions. By 2010, Powerball tickets also became available for purchase in the state.
The revenue generated from these ticket sales is channeled towards the retirement funds dedicated to the state's public workers.
