New Jersey’s Pick-6 is changing. What does this mean for my Autoplay?

The New Jersey Lottery is updating the game rules for Pick-6 starting April 5, 2022. 

Here’s what is changing:

  • XTRA: Multipliers are now added automatically. All plays will get a random XTRA value: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 10. 
  • Numbers: The new numbers are from 1 to 46. 
  • Price: Plays go up from $1 to $2 - but remember, XTRA is now included.
  • Double Play: The new add-on feature (“Double Play”) won’t be available on Jackpocket right away but is an option when playing Pick-6 at a lottery retailer. 

If you have an Autoplay set for Pick-6, here’s what will change for you:

Players with a Quick Pick Autoplay

Starting with the April 7th drawing, your Quick Picks will be randomly generated from the new pool of numbers 1 to 46. 

Players with a Pick Your Own Numbers Autoplay

If your Autoplay numbers contain 47, 48, or 49, you’ll need to select new numbers before 9pm on Monday, April 4th. After that, Pick-6 Autoplays with unavailable numbers will be deleted—but you can always set up a new one!

All players with Pick-6 Autoplays

Take note: the price per play will now be $2 and will automatically include XTRA.

The new Pick-6 will start drawing on Thursday, April 7th, 2022. 

You can update, pause, or delete your Pick-6 Autoplay by opening the Jackpocket app and tapping “Autoplay” at the bottom of the main play screen.
