TRENTON — Someone won the New Jersey Lottery Pick-6 on 7/11 with a ticket purchased at 7-Eleven.
Monday’s $17.3million jackpot was won through a ticket sold at a 7-Eleven store in Maplewood in Essex County, next to a Shell station at the intersection of Valley Street and Parker Ave.
The winning numbers for the Monday July 11 draw were: 06, 07, 12, 14, 34 and 45. So there was a 7, but not an 11.
The 7-Eleven store will receive a $10,000 bonus as the retailer who sold the winning ticket.
The jackpot resets to $2 million for the next draw on Thursday.
The Pick-6 lottery had not been won since January.
The rules of the game were updated in April to offer better odds of winning, reducing the number pool from 49 to 46. But the price of the game was increased to $2, with an additional feature for an extra dollar for a chance to win $250,000 and other prizes in an additional draw.
Pick-6 was the New Jersey Lottery’s big-jackpot game after its introduction in 1980, but was eclipsed by multi-state games introduced in 1999 and 2010.
In fiscal 2020, the Lottery’s $3.2 billion in revenue included $55 million in Pick-6 sales. The biggest source of revenue, by far, was scratch games with $1.95 billion in sales.
