Losing NJ Lottery Tickets Could Yield Big Bucks

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Some losing New Jersey Lottery scratch-off tickets may soon become lucrative items.

Lottery officials plan to soon roll out “Million Dollar Replay,” a program that will allow scratch-off holders to enter their losing tickets into a yearly $1 million drawing.

To take part, players will have to join the lottery’s VIP Club and have bought at least $10 in non-winning tickets.

The lottery will also hold quarterly drawings to pick 100 winners who will each get $250. And at year’s end, 15 winners will be selected for prizes ranging from $10,000 to $1 million.

It’s not yet known when the program will get under way.
