Fast Play Progressive

Fast Play Progressive is New Jersey’s fastest way to play, with the chance to win a progressive jackpot that starts at $10,000 and rolls over until someone hits it!

Players have a choice of a variety of quick play style games that all contribute towards ONE jackpot. The games are printed on demand from the Lottery terminal, so you can play anytime.

There’s a price point for everyone, ranging from $1 to $10. Top prizes for each game are a proportional amount of the current jackpot, so the price point you choose determines the share of the jackpot you could win:

Fast Play Progressive FAQs

Here are the answers to some questions players often have:

  • What is a progressive jackpot? It’s the top prize for all Fast Play games, that increases every time someone buys a ticket and the jackpot isn’t won – so it keeps growing until someone wins it.
  • How do you know what the current jackpot is worth? The estimated amount is printed on all tickets and shown in stores.
  • Can I still claim prizes from older Fast Play games? Fast Play Progressive was previously known as Fast Play. If you purchased a winning ticket before the start of Fast Play Progressive, you can still claim the prize within one year of the date you bought the ticket.
