The New Jersey Lottery is happy to announce a new multi-millionaire in Essex County. One ticket matched all six numbers drawn for the Monday, July 11, Pick-6, with Double Play drawing.
The winning ticket will claim the $17.3 million annuity jackpot.
The winning ticket was sold at the 7-Eleven store #36089 at 490 Valley Street in Maplewood. The lucky retailer will receive a $10,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
The winning numbers for the Monday, July 11 drawing were 06, 07, 12, 14, 34 and 45.
The jackpot will reset to $2 million for the next drawing that will be held on Thursday, July 14.
Pick-6 was updated in April of this year. It now offers better odds with a decrease in the matrix from the previous 1-49 pool of numbers to 1-46, resulting in improved overall chances of winning.
The price of the new Pick-6 base game increased to $2 per play. For an extra $1, the add-on feature Double Play® gives players the chance to win up to $250,000 and other prizes in an additional drawing, held immediately after the regular Pick 6 drawing using the same numbers and multiplier from a player's Pick-6 ticket!
In addition to the jackpot winner, the drawing produced seven winners matching five out of the six white balls drawn.
Four of those seven winners took home $4,576 each. The other three winners had the 2X multiplier making their tickets each worth $9,152. An additional 10,704 players took home $95,442 in prizes.
The Multiplier is randomly computer-generated for each ticket at the time of purchase and is included in the base price of a wager.
