Pick-4 “1956” Payout Sets Single-Day Record

January 1, 2023 | Lottery Sales

Over $1,000,000 in prizes was awarded to Pick-4 players yesterday

TRENTON, NJ (December 29, 2022) – The New Jersey Lottery is excited to announce that Pick-4 players in the state have won over $1 million in a single day for the first time ever. The winning numbers for the evening drawing on December 28th were 1, 9, 5, and 6, awarding the majority of the $1,023,210 in prizes won yesterday.

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-4 in the history of the game.

There were 267 tickets that won $2,500 each playing 1956 straight based on a $0.50 wager. This is a major increase from the last time 1, 9, 5, and 6 were drawn straight on October 16, 2016, when players only won $842 each based on the same $0.50 straight wager.

“We are thrilled to see Pick-4 players in New Jersey experiencing such success 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.”
