A construction consultant from Middlesex County, New Jersey got the best weekend surprise when he found out that he was a brand new Jersey Cash 5 JACKPOT winner.

Around 11:30 that night, his phone beeped and lit up. A new text, email, and notification from Jackpocket all waited for him on his phone showing the same message – “You won big!” He called some family members to the couch and opened the email with them at this side to see the good news first-hand..

Not only did Jerry C. get an automatic notification from Jackpocket (natch), but our CEO couldn’t resist giving him a congratulatory call the next morning.

“I never really played the lottery much before the Jackpocket app,” Jerry said. “I love that I don’t need to worry about checking my tickets. I’ve been telling my friends that the app is the best thing ever.”

He told the NJ lottery that a fortune cookie had actually precicted his lottery windfall: “The fortune cookie called it two days early – ‘You will win big.'”

The fortune cookie called it two days early – ‘You will win big.”

And just like that. Jerry is the biggest NJ winner in Jackpocket history! His win comes just three months after Jersey Cash 5 launched in the app, along with other New Jersey daily games. Here’s to many more!

Jersey Cash 5 lottery ticket worth $1.7M sold at liquor store

A jackpot-winning Jersey Cash 5 lottery ticket worth $1,669,143 was sold for Friday’s drawing a liquor store in Essex County.

The lucky ticket matching all five numbers was bought at Tremont Liquors on Sanford Street in East Orange, New Jersey Lottery officials said Monday.

Friday’s winning numbers were: 20, 24, 30, 31, and 45 with an XTRA number of 3.

No one hit the jackpot Saturday or Sunday, pushing Monday’s top prize to an estimated $264,000. Friday’s jackpot climbed to nearly $1.7 million after eight daily drawings were held without a top prize winner.
