New Jersey LotteryNew Jersey Lottery: N.J. woman wins $4M Pick 6 lottery jackpot with loose change she found around the houseRating:

A New Jersey woman won a $4 million Pick 6 lottery drawing after buying two tickets with loose change she found scattered about her Morris County home.

Wanda M., of Roxbury, watched the April 29th drawing on television and showed up the next day at New Jersey Lottery headquarters in Lawrence with her son and daughter to claim her jackpot, officials said.

Wanda bought a pair of $1 quick pick tickets at Valero, a gas station on Route 46 in Netcong. She said she yelled out, "we won the big one!," when her daughter showed up a short time time later.

The two then immediately went to the gas station to get the lucky ticket validated.

The winning numbers from the April 29, 2019 Pick 6 drawing were: 10, 18, 23, 24, 32, and 40. The XTRA number was 4.

The Pick 6 jackpot has now been won three times this year. Stanley McKelvin won $4.5 million with a ticket bought at BuyRite Liquor on Harrison Avenue in Kearny for the Feb. 25 drawing.

In January, a park ranger, Judith Smith of Bayonne and her children, William Kenneth Lee Smith and Sarah Jude Smith, claimed a $29.5 million prize they won in the Dec. 17 drawing. That ticket was purchased at Eddy's Wine & Liquors on Avenue C in Bayonne.

The odds of a $1 Pick 6 ticket matching six numbers are 13,983,816 to 1.

Was telling my Mesa, AZ LP friend that every time a NJ Borgata trip comes up, somebody wins the lottery in NJ!!

Congratulations to the lucky lady, QP the way to go.

Noticed it is up to $2.2 million, not bad change.  You watch both MM & PB will get won too before the 24th---happens every visit there.  Maybe will just stick with their Cash 4 Life, better payout than Lucky 4 Life, but @ this point in my life IDC!

    Congratulations to Wanda M., of Roxbury, NJ.  Her lucky loose change was found at the correct time. "You Never Know"

      Four million American dollars before taxes will come in handy!

          This makes me wonder how many players will be buying their tickets with coins tomorrow!

          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any. So many systems, so many theories, so few jackpot winners.

          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

              Just to think, Wanda could have rustled up the loose change for a six-pack - but instead, she made the right choice, and it paid off big time. This calls for an intergalactic celebration...

                Lottery tickets can be funny sometimes. Spend $100 and wind up barely winning anything, spend $1-2 and you get a few million dollars back.

                  Maybe she didn't like the Surgeon General's warning on a pack of smokes and figured the 1-800 Gambler warning was the lesser of two evils.

                    I Agree!Green laughI like your way of thinking Theox- 

                     I am wagering $4.00 to win Power Ball or Mega Millions. $4.00 each game. I am expecting a return of tens of millions of dollars.

                     I play Advance Play and buy five weeks worth of playing. 
                    $80.00 total for both MM & PB.

                    Lep Good Luck to all LP Members and staff!

                      Weird, isn't it? It's almost as if it's completely random and totally unpredictable.

                        Dang, 9,000,000 residents in that state and probably almost all over 18 are winners.

                        Hope your hitter comes soon so that you are no longer the “odd man out.”

                          jjtheprince14, I'm going to keep your thoughts in the back of my mind on the 24th when I take the Jitney from Borgata to Bally's and or the boardwalk where they sell NJ lottery tickets...how about an outsider winning there?
