Upcoming Change in Announcements for Prizes: NJ Lottery
TRENTON, NJ (Sept. 29, 2023) – Due to personnel changes, the NJ Lottery will be changing the timing of prize announcements in press releases for some games. Announcements for jackpots and prizes of $1,000,000 or more will still be made as soon as possible, but non-jackpot prizes under $1,000,000 will now be combined into one weekly wrap-up press release. The weekly press release will list the game, prize value, and selling retailer location of those prizes.
Jackpot rollover announcements will be reduced below certain thresholds, and the summation of smaller prizes will no longer be available.
The first weekly prize wrap-up press release will be issued next Monday, October 2. Please reach out to PublicInfo@lottery.nj.gov with any press-related inquiries or concerns.
