Anyone who knows me or follows me knows from time to time I like to partake in the NJ Lottery. It’s so fun to me and I always envision all the fun things I can do if I won some extra cash. So when Blog Meets Brand reached out to me and said they would give me $15 to try out NJ Lottery’s new play and win game Fast Play game I was all about it.
Fast Play is NJ Lottery’s new instant win game that can be purchased at the lotto terminal, however unlike drawing games you don’t wait for results, you know instantly. There’s no scratching required either like other instant games. You ask for one of the many different games they have such as Bling Bling Bucks ($5 each) or Red Hot Numbers ($1 each) and the ticket is printed for you.
Off I went to my favorite Quick Chek to purchase my tickets. You however can go to any store that sells NJ Lotto tickets such as 7-11 or your neighborhood bodega. If the store has a lottery then you can play there.
My Quick Chek had this Fast Play display which made buying tickets even easier! All I did was look at the different games available and pull the little slip for the ones I wanted. With new games coming out in the new few months these may change or others added to this list.
As you see each game has it’s own little ticket. I then went up to the lotto terminal and handed these slips over to the attendant who then ran them through the machine. How easy is that? No numbers to tell her, no fumbling with names.
Just like that I had my tickets and was ready to see if I won. Depending on the game you choose the tickets are printed differently and instructions on how to win are printed clearly on them. However finding out if you won is easy too. If you’re not sure if your ticket is a winner most lotto terminals have a little green scanner where you can check your tickets at.
Woo! One of my tickets won $7!! I thought it was a winner but wasn’t sure. When I scanned it that’s the message I got. This is so convenient for me since I can be a bit on the shy side sometimes (yes I have a hard time speaking to people at times, can you believe it?), with this I know for sure I won without having to ask anyone.
I then just gave my winning ticket to the attendant and received my cash. All in all it took about 5 minutes for me to purchase and check my tickets. It doesn’t get any easier and faster than that.
Overall I had fun playing the Fast Play games. They’re different from the games I’m used to playing, but different is good. Bling Bling Bucks is my favorite right now, but I’m excited to see what new games are introduced in the future.
Do you like playing any lottery games? If so what’s the most you’ve won. If you play the Fast Play games let me know how your experience went and how much you won. Good luck everyone!
