In November 1969, the New Jersey voters approved the establishment of the State Lottery as part of the general election. The State Lottery is committed to providing revenue-generating entertainment products to help protect the retirement benefits of those who serve our communities, including New Jersey's, police officers, firefighters, teachers, and other public employees. Since its establishment, the New Jersey Lottery has awarded more than $42 billion in prizes and over $28 billion to the State.
Pick 6 XTRA was launched on May 9, 1980, as one of the first of its kind in the US. The format of the game underwent changes almost thrice. Until 2000, Pick 6 also drew a five-digit bonus number whose Exact Match entered the player into a special drawing where the top prize was $50,000 yearly in 20 installments, with no cash option. It was on January 15, 2015, that Pick 6 added XTRA feature to its game structure that multiplies the non-jackpot winnings. Since its creation, Pick 6 has been producing a considerable number of lottery winners and is fulfilling the dreams of many.
