Underage Gambling: "Not 18 Yet? No Bet."
LOTTERY IS NOT CHILD'S PLAY!
New Jersey State Lottery Law was written after voters approved amending the New Jersey Constitution to allow for the establishment of the New Jersey Lottery. One of the provisions written into the law set an age restriction on lottery play in the State.
STATE LOTTERY LAW N.J.S.A. 5:9-1 et seq.Section 5:9-15 of the Lottery statute states:
"No ticket or share shall be sold to any persons under the age of 18, but this shall not be deemed to prohibit the purchase of a ticket or share for the purpose of making a gift by a person 18 years of age or older to a person less than that age. Any licensee who knowingly sells or offers to sell a lottery ticket or share to any person under the age of 18 is a disorderly person."

- Don't involve your underage children in your Lottery and other gaming activities.
- Set a Responsible Play example for your children.
- It's the Law. Must be 18 or older to buy a lottery ticket.
