  Quick Draw Has Launched in New Jersey!

Kick-off Party Will be Held at 8th Street Tavern in Hoboken

 TRENTON, N.J. (July 17, 2017) – Today, the New Jersey Lottery launched the fast-paced Quick Draw game in 400 locations across the state.  Quick Draw, a keno-style game, offers a new type of lottery play where winning numbers are electronically drawn and then displayed on a television screen that is installed in retail locations where tickets are sold. Drawings are held every five minutes.

 “Quick Draw is a strong addition to the Lottery’s product lineup. I’m confident that players will enjoy the fast-paced fun and excitement the game provides. Quick Draw creates a new level of entertainment in social settings,” said Hedinger.

 Quick Draw is a social space lottery game and will be available

predominately in public venues such as bars, restaurants and bowling alleys, where players stay for a period of time to socialize, dine and meet with friends. Players can purchase a Quick Draw play for a $1 minimum up to a $10 maximum. Prizes range from $1 up to $1,000,000 depending on the purchase amount.

 “Quick Draw is a unique Lottery game because many people can participate and engage with the game via the large television screen enhancing interaction in social spaces. The game also provides an opportunity to a new set of businesses which do not currently offer traditional Lottery games. Selling Lottery can be a business boon due to our strong brand and promotional reach.  Lottery also provides commissions and may enhance overall sales.” said Hedinger.

 Tomorrow, a Lottery Quick Draw Launch Party will be held, beginning with a 3:00 p.m. press conference, at

8th Street Tavern in Hoboken.  Lottery Director Carole Hedinger will introduce the new game to the public.
