The New Jersey Lottery has just introduced Fast Play, a new series of quick play games. Fast Play games are printed from the New Jersey Lottery terminal at your local lottery retailer. There is no selecting numbers, waiting for a drawing, or scratching required – Fast Play tickets print out ready for you to look over and determine if you are a winner.
Fast Play games will be changed every few months to keep things exciting. Right now Fast Play has 4 exciting ticket options at 3 different price points:
- Fast Cash- $1, win up to $500, overall odds 1 in 4
- Red Hot Numbers- $1, win up to $1,000, overall odds 1 in 3.9
- Slots of Fun- $2 win up to $5,000 overall odds 1 in 3.8
- Bling Bling Bucks- $5, win up to $25,000, overall odds 1 in 3.2
and I hear that a $10 Fast Play game is in the works as well!
I couldn't wait to get my hands on the new Fast Play tickets – the day I first heard about them I went right over to my local Quick Chek and asked the cashier for 2 Bling Bling Bucks, 1 Slots of Fun, 1 Red Hot Numbers, and 2 Fast Cash tickets. Six tickets total for just $15*. I told myself I had to wait until I got home to look over the tickets, but to tell you the truth, it was all but killing me not to look at them right there in the parking lot!
I made it back home and sat down to review my tickets. I started with the Fast Cash tickets. To win Fast Cash I needed to match 3 of my “winning symbols” in any vertical, horizontal or diagonal line to win the prize for that line. No luck here… onto the next game!
To win Red Hot Numbers I would have to match at least 3 of my numbers to the “hot numbers” but unfortunately I only matched 1 number. No worries though, I still have 3 more tickets!
Slots of Fun time! I must say, the title of this ticket is my favorite – love the play on words. Ok, so in this game the object is to match 3 winning symbols on a single slot reel or match 2 winning symbols and one crown for a double win. No luck on this one… I hope the $5 tickets bring me some luck!
Time for my $5 Bling Bling Bucks games. To win this game I must match 3 like prize amounts inside the giant diamond ring. There is also an opportunity to win up to 2 bonus games on each ticket. To win the bonus game you must get 2 matching prize amounts. Hooray! I got lucky on not one but BOTH Bling Bling Bucks tickets! I won $5 on each – one win from the regular game and the other from a bonus game.
Although I didn't win back my $15 investment, I did win $10. And I bet you can guess what I will be doing with my $10 winnings — that's right, Fast Play tickets, I am coming for you! But seriously, with these odds of winning and the easy nature of Fast Play, who wouldn't want to play? With no waiting or scratching required, Fast Play is really the fastest and easiest way to play and win!
