Why are New Jersey’s lottery winners so different?
A lottery winner in New Jersey is getting a big pay boost as a result of the state’s massive lottery expansion.
John Hynes, the deputy commissioner for the state lottery office, said Friday that he expects the payout of winners will rise from $3.4 million to $3 million, based on a formula that includes a 1% increase in prize money.
The payout is for winners in the jackpot, a type of prize in which winners receive money based on how many times the jackpots are drawn.
The jackpot will increase from $4.1 million to nearly $5 million for winners of $2 million to jackpots of $10 million.
The jackpot for the $2.4 billion jackpot is up to $9.9 million.
Hynes said the jackup will take place between Sept. 3 and Oct. 9.
He didn’t say how much of the jack pot will be paid out.
He said winners in both the $1 million and $5,000 jackpot jackpots will receive the largest payment of any lottery jackpot winner.
The winners of the $10,000 and $50,000 prizes will receive about $2,000 each.
Hiversons office is working with lottery officials and local officials to make sure the jackpotties are functioning properly, he said.
Hicks said the lottery office will have a lottery inspector at each lottery site to monitor the site, and will be in contact with the local lottery boards to make changes.
