How to play on Winning Wednesdays

Players can enter their ticket details at the New Jersey Lottery website or use the mobile app to scan the draw games tickets. Entries are earned at a rate of one per dollar, with a minimum of a $1 purchase to generate an entry. For example, if you purchase a $2 Draw Game ticket, you will receive two entries. If you purchase a $10 Draw Game ticket, you will receive 10 entries. All tickets can win instant prizes, as well as be entered into a drawing with a top prize of $10,000.

Winners are immediately awarded their prize via their Players Collect 'N Win account. If you win, you'll receive a pop-up message informing you of your win. If you're lucky enough to win the $10,000 prize, the New Jersey Lottery will notify you after the drawing.
