New Jersey’s Pick-3 “7-7-7” Payout Sets Single-Day Record
Over $1,000,000 in prizes was awarded to Pick-3 players yesterday
TRENTON, New Jersey (Jan. 27, 2023) – Lucky 7s across the board! Last night’s Pick-3 drawing results were 7-7-7, and the Fireball number drawn was 7 as well. Now that Pick-3 awards fixed prizes, lucky players betting on number 7 set the record for the largest single-day Pick-3 payout in New Jersey Lottery history – over $1 million in prizes!
There were 2,862 tickets that won $250 each playing 7-7-7 straight based on a $0.50 wager. This is a major increase from the last time 7, 7, and 7 were drawn straight on June 28, 2022, when players only won $114.50 each based on the same $0.50 straight wager with a pari-mutuel prize structure.
This significant payout is the result of the game change that took place on November 14, 2022, which made it possible for players to win such a large amount in a single day. In fact, this is the largest single-day payout for Pick-3 in the history of the game.
“We are excited that our Pick-3 players found luck in 7-7-7 and want to congratulate all the winners on their big payouts,” said Executive Director James Carey. “We encourage all players to keep playing and trying their luck with this exciting game.”
