Things got strange as lady luck cashed in at the New Jersey lottery this week as 7-7-7 balls were drawn, with 7 being the “fireball” number also.
It’s the first time since last June that 7-7-7 was drawn. Over one million dollars in prizes were awarded, but the 2,862 tickets that played 7-7-7 each won just $250.

The drawing also set the record for the largest single-day Pick-3 payout in New Jersey Lottery history.
“This significant payout is the result of the game change that took place on November 14, 2022, which made it possible for players to win such a large amount in a single day. In fact, this is the largest single day payout for Pick-3 in the history of the game,” the New Jersey Lottery Commission said today.
“We are excited that our Pick-3 players found luck in 7-7-7 and want to congratulate all the winners on their big payouts,” said Executive Director James Carey. “We encourage all players to keep playing and trying their luck with this exciting game.”
