NJ Lottery Powerball – Powerball NJ

The New Jersey Lottery is 1 of 47 US State Lotteries & District Lotteries that offer the Powerball game – in this case the NJ Lottery Powerball – as part of its overall portfolio of lottery games.

Powerball is a Multi-State USA Lottery that is run & syndicated across the USA by the Multi State Lottery Association – MUSLand is one of the largest lottery games in the world having produced a record jackpot of an incredible US$ 1.58 BILLION in January 2016. This huge amount is the largest lottery jackpot ever won to date in the history of jackpot lottery games across the world and dwarfed the already huge US$ 656 MILLION record that was created by Mega Millions in March 2012.

The very first Powerball draw took place on April 22nd 1992 with 16 USA Lottery companies – who were all members of the MUSL – taking part after the game changed its format and name from Lotto America which had originally started on February 13th 1988.

The New Jersey Powerball began its first operations back on January 31st 2010 when the Mega Millions consortium – of which the NJ Lottery is a member – entered into a cross-selling agreement with the MUSL – allowing the sales of Powerball in Mega Millions States and Mega Millions in Powerball States.

NJ Powerball How it Works

The NJ Lottery Powerball works in the same way as the Powerball game works in all the States and Districts in the US that offer the game.

Jackpots start off at US$ 40 Million and ROLLOVER after each draw when the top prize is not won – increasing in size by at least US$ 10 Million each time making for some huge jackpot figures.

6 numbers are drawn in total for the New Jersey Powerball game from 2 separate drawing machines – firstly 5 numbers are drawn from 59 white balls are and then 1 number (the Powerball) is drawn from 35 red balls.

Draws for the NJ Lottery Powerball take place twice every week on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 10.59pm EST and you will be able to check the New Jersey Lottery results soon after the draw.

There is also a Powerball prize multiplier facility available when playing that dramatically increases the size of a Powerball win and is called Powerball POWERPLAY...


The Powerball POWERPLAY option is a fixed prize multiplier and will automatically increase the Powerball win to at least double the original amount – and is there to give players of the NJ Powerball a chance to increase their winnings on all levels of the prize structure apart from the NJ Lottery Powerball jackpot itself.

With Powerball POWER PLAY – you are very easily able to multiply your winnings on these levels by 2x,, 3x or 4x – greatly increasing the amount you will walk away with.

As a good example – a Powerball non-jackpot 2nd prize win of US$ 1 Million will be immediately doubled to US$ 2 Million when playing the NJ Lottery Powerball using this Powerball POWERPLAY facility.
