About the New Jersey Lottery

New Jersey Scenery

The state of New Jersey has been creating lucky winners since the first lottery tickets went on sale in December 1970.

A year later in March 1971, a couple from West Caldwell scooped the first Millionaire jackpot. Much later, in May 1999, New Jersey joined a lottery called The Big Game, which was later renamed Mega Millions.

The state started selling Powerball tickets in 2010. Profits from New Jersey state lottery ticket sales benefit small businesses, educational institutions, veteran's services, and several other initiatives in the state. To date, more than $25 billion has been allocated to worthy causes. Players must be 18 years old or older to purchase and redeem lottery tickets.
