Required retailers to install special 'double-wide' bins

By Todd Northrop

To honor its 50 years in operation, the New Jersey Lottery Monday released literally its biggest instant game ever: the Super 50 Scratch-Off.

At a full 8 inches wide and 12 inches tall, the new game is more than double the size of any prior scratch-off ticket in the state. It's so big, the game is housed in special "double-wide" bin available at most of the state's 7000 Lottery retailers.

"Jersey Lottery players love Scratch-Offs, and this is the ultimate BIG game. It offers players an incredible 50 chances to win, making it the perfect way to celebrate 50 years of the New Jersey Lottery," said James Carey, the Lottery's Executive Director.

Selling for $10, the tree-hating ticket offers players the opportunity to scratch their way around the ticket, looking to uncover money bags, multipliers, $50 bonus spots, and a top prize of $500,000.

The release of the Super 50 ticket is the latest in the Lottery's year-long 50th Anniversary celebration that began in January with special Kickoff Events in Bridgewater and Atlantic City.

A total of 9,681,750 tickets were printed for the game, with the following number prizes available to win:

  • $500,000 (5 available)
  • $10,000 (32 available)
  • $5,000 (64 available)

That does not sound the least bit exciting to me.  So the physical size of the ticket is bigger...Yawn.

Awhile back, I suggested a scratcher to the Michigan lottery for its upcomming 50th and I'll just say that I suggested a lot more exciting prizes than what they have had in the previous 50 years and leave it at that in hopes that they actually use my suggestion. (BTW I also pointed out how they could do it based on past tickets).

    Don't play scratchers per se, but right on time for our flight to Borgata very soon...look out slot machines and NJ Lottery.

    Todd, if you read this, can you buy lottery tickets with a credit card?

      You might be able to use a debit card at some retailers, but not a credit card.  I would plan for cash.

       

      Check the State Lottery Report Card
      What grade did your lottery earn?
