$250,000 worth of lottery tickets could be in the house this Christmas

On Sunday, Dec. 12, the New Jersey Lottery is offering two lucky winners a shot at $250,000 by matching two of the 488 winning lottery numbers drawn on Dec. 7, 2018.

The New Jersey players will have the option of choosing three of the winning numbers plus an additional one from a list of 13 possible numbers drawn on Dec. 7 or a combination of two of the winning numbers plus a number from the 13 numbers drawn.

Each player will have the option of picking a different number between the two winning numbers drawn on Dec. 7 or ordering the combination of the winning numbers drawn on Dec. 7 (sold in a single prize.)

The two winners will be selected at random on Dec. 21, 2019. The prize is non-transferable and payable in cash.

One option of any combination of winning numbers will not be enough to win the jackpot, and the two winners must elect the optional third number at the time of the draw.

Winners must be present at the New Jersey Lottery to claim the prizes. Winning tickets should be presented at local Lottery outlets or, if an online option is available, at the Lottery’s web site.
