December 12, 2015
New Jersey Lottery players across the state won more than $97 million playing instant games in November. Of that, 51 players claimed top-prize winning tickets with annuity values of nearly $8.6 million.
 
The largest instant ticket prize was claimed this month was by Ramkrishn Patel, 32, from Kearny in Hudson County. He claimed the $5,000,000 Cash Extravaganza game top annuity prize of $5,000,000. Mr. Patel said that he is an occasional player and purchased this game once before. His lucky location is Varsity Liquors & Deli, 203 Davis Ave., Kearny. The retailer will receive a $30,000 bonus commission for selling this winning ticket.
 
Tyrone M., 56, from East Newark in Hudson County played the $3 Win for Life!
game winning $5,000 a month for life. He purchased his lucky ticket at F & R Convenience, 12 Kearny Ave., Kearny. The retailer will receive a $30,000 bonus commission for selling this winning ticket.
 
Rathang Joshi, 24, was visiting his father who works at Zackria Fuel, LLC. Gas station’s retail store. While there, he purchased two 50X Money tickets with the second ticket providing a life changing million dollar win. Rathang said that he will pay off his student loans and complete his aerospace engineering studies.
 
“Congratulations to Ramkrishn, Tyrone, Rathang, and all of the thousands of instant ticket prizewinners throughout the state this month,” said Carole Hedinger, New Jersey Lottery executive director. “Everyone’s a winner with the Lottery because game revenue supports vital educational programs and institutions, tuition aid grants, school nutrition programs, veterans’ homes, and other beneficiaries across the state.” A minimum of 30 percent of game revenue is contributed to the state on behalf of these recipients.
 
In addition, the more than 7,200 New Jersey Lottery retailers benefit from selling the Lottery games by earning commissions and bonuses. Retailers receive a bonus commission of 2.5% of the top prize, not to exceed $30,000, when they sell a winning instant ticket. They receive 5% on all other ticket sales plus other bonuses.
 
Retailers also receive benefits from the strong brand recognition created by Lottery advertising and marketing support. Displaying the Lottery brand is a valuable asset that may increase store traffic, attract new customers and keep regular players as consistent customers.
