About New Jersey Pick 6 XTRA Lottery

The NJ Pick 6 Extra lottery game is a twist on the state’s original lottery game. With prizes beginning at $2 million and rising with every rollover, it’s no surprise that the game is popular amongst residents of New Jersey and beyond. Cash prizes start when you match just 3 numbers!

How to Play NJ Pick 6 XTRA Lottery

There are 2 chances every week for players to hit the big time with the NJ Pick 6 XTRA lottery. The first game plays on a Monday, with the other game taking place on a Thursday. Each lottery ticket has a panel which contains the numbers 1 to 49. You must pick 6. Then, wait for the draw to see if you’re a winner!

Players should note that whilst many online vendors will automatically enter you into the XTRA portion of this game, others may not. So, if you want to play for a bigger cash prize then always ensure that the XTRA feature has been selected too. The only prize which is unaffected by the XTRA is the main jackpot prize.

NJ Lottery Pick 6 XTRA Payouts

Now for the part that you’ve all been waiting for, the payouts. There are 4 different prizes on the average pick 6 game. There are another 4 on the XTRA game. In the main game, you’ll win prizes whenever you match 3 or more draw numbers. By playing XTRA, you’ll win a prize by matching 2 or more numbers.

The jackpot has been won 4 times in the last year alone. The biggest payout in the last year was a total of $8.3 million. The other jackpot wins range from $3.2-4.3 mil. So, it’s safe to say that this can be a lucrative game. The odds of hitting the jackpot are around 1 in 13,983,816.

As you’d expect, the odds of winning get higher as you look to the lower value prizes. In fact, the overall odds of winning an NJ Lottery Pick 6 prize is estimated to be 1 in 57. If you play Pick 6 XTRA, then you have a 1 in 7 chance of claiming a prize.

The lower value prizes are fixed. These include the 3 match Pick 6 Prize and XTRA prize and the 2 match XTRA prize. However, the rarer prizes are all variable and are determined by the number of people who are entitled to a share of the prize pool. The estimated 5 of 6 prizes is around $2,700. However, with 5 numbers and the maximum XTRA, you could increase this payout to around £13,500.

Our Conclusion has always been a great lottery staple. However, we love the inclusion of the XTRA feature. It’s a worthwhile addition as it can significantly increase the value of non-jackpot prizes. As the jackpot has been won 4 times in the past year winning this game is not an unrealistic goal. It gives players a real shot at a life-changing sum.
