Scratch-Offs, Multi-Million Dollar Jackpots, and a New Year’s Raffle awarded incredible prizes throughout 2022 -NJ Lottery

New Jersey Lottery officials said they are thrilled to announce that a total of 61 prizes worth $1,000,000 or more were claimed by lucky players throughout the state in 2022.

According to NJ Lottery, from Powerball to Pick 6 and everything in between, it's been a year of massive wins and life-changing jackpots.

Officials are saying that some of the largest prizes won in New Jersey in 2022 was a $17.6 million Pick-6 jackpot, sold at a 7-Eleven in Maplewood for the August 1, 2022, drawing.

That lucky ticket was just one of six jackpot-winning Pick-6 tickets sold last year, with the other jackpots ranging from $2.7 to $7.1 million.


According to NJ  Lottery, while the Powerball and Mega Millions jackpots remained elusive to hopeful New Jerseyans last year, the $1,000,000 second-tier prizes for these games were won by 25 tickets.

NJ Lottery confirmed that seven of those players opted for multiplier add-ons, resulting in five Powerball prizes multiplied to $2,000,000, one Mega Millions prize multiplied to $2,000,000, and one Mega Millions prize multiplied to $3,000,000.

There were 20 separate Scratch-Offs players claiming prizes of $1,000,000 or more, with six tickets winning an incredible $3,000,000.

Officials say two separate players won prizes of $5,000 a week for life playing the $3 Win For Life! ticket. Million-dollar prizes were grabbed for 100X The Cash$1,000,000 Diamond SpectacularBlazing Hot 7's, and other popular Scratch-Off games.
