That feeling when you try a new lottery game for the first time...and you HIT THE JACKPOT.🤯
Jackpocket’s $652,643 Jersey Cash 5 winner knows all about it. This born and bred New Jerseyan usually sticks to Powerball and Mega Millions. When he saw how high the September 12th jackpot had climbed, he decided to try Jersey Cash 5 for the first time.
He said he was thinking about his lottery-loving mom, who passed away in July. "I was playing for her."
When our player got a "Congrats, you Won Big!" email from Jackpocket, he said he checked and double-checked his ticket four times. Finally, he told his wife they had won 6-figures.
"I'll use the money to help out my family," he said.
This winner purchased a few Jersey Cash 5 tickets using the Jackpocket app as a treat for herself on Mother's Day. Later that night, she checked the results on her phone and jolted awake as she saw she had 1 of 2 winning tickets for the 5/9 drawing - winning a prize of $466,957! pic.twitter.com/ucqvcAVxxI— New Jersey Lottery (@NJLottery) September 19, 2021
