New Jersey Pick 6 Payout and Mechanics

Pick 6 has very straightforward rules. To play, simply choose 6 numbers from 1 to 49. If you match all 6, you take home the jackpot!

You can also play the same numbers for up to 26 consecutive drawings by choosing the multi-draw option.

Pick 6 tickets are priced at $1 per play.

For an extra cost of $1, players can use the optional XTRA game mode to increase any non-jackpot prizes they might win. If you match at 3 or more numbers, your non-jackpot prize will be multiplied by the XTRA number, which can go from 2 to 5.

You also unlock another prize tier with XTRA: Match 2 numbers and you win $2.

New Jersey Pick 6 Prize Claiming

When purchasing Pick 6 tickets, players must already select how they want to be paid in the event that they win the jackpot. If an option is not selected, the prize will default to an annuity scheme. When claiming the prize however, a player can change their selection to the lump sum option, but the reverse is not the possible.

To claim prizes of $599.50 and below, winners can go directly to their ticket retailer. On the other hand, prizes of $600 and above will require the winner to fill out a New Jersey Lottery Claim Form and submit this to the New Jersey Lottery headquarters – either by mail or personal appearance.

Finally, keep in mind that prizes over $5,000 will be subject to federal taxes, which will be deducted directly from the prize amount.
