There are several archetypes of New Jersey Lottery players, officials say.
North Bergen students 18-year-old Ali Said and 19-year-old Ali Najjar used their winnings from a $5 instant scratch off ticket to buy a $10 ticket. They repeated this pattern until they moved up to a $20 prize and eventually becoming a $50,000 winner.
New Jersey Lottery Instant Games players won more than $98.5 million in prizes in February, officials stated Wednesday.
