New Jersey State Lottery numbers
The majority of states operate official lotteries, games of chance in which players pay a fee to choose a series of numbers (or play scratch-off tickets) for the opportunity to win cash prizes. Typically, states name an official beneficiary of lottery revenue, typically education programs. In New Jersey, for example, lottery net proceeds are legally required to be used for state institutions including higher education and senior citizen programs.

Types of Lottery Allowed
The most common form of state lotteries are scratch off cards and choosing a series of numbers. The New Jersey State Lottery holds both of these types of lotteries. Scratch-off cards give the player the opportunity to get their winnings immediately. The numbers lottery is held twice a week in New Jersey. Players choose a sequence of up to six numbers, and get a payout depending on how the numbers they chose correspond to the drawn numbers. However, although the lottery is a form of gambling, New Jersey does not allow lotteries to be conducted by machines. These machines can be anything that uses video, mechanical, or electrical technology to take a coin, token, or other form of payment, and gives an immediate payout if the player wins.
