Anybody listening?
After digging in the app to find a way to contact the app developers to report that the Powerball Double Play red ball no longer shows on screen, I got the old Microsoft answer. “Delete the app, reboot your phone, and reload the app.” I’ve tried that twice and it does not solve the problem. I see others have reported the same issue. Curious if the developers even read these reviews. Probably not when the app has less than three stars.

A good, but absolutely awful app to have
This app is almost a necessary evil if you play the NJ lottery in any way. For a while now, the licensing for whatever scanning software the app uses to scan scratch off tickets has expired and I guess nobody cares enough to keep the app usable for lottery customers. There isn’t a way in the app to manually enter the ticket information either) at least I haven’t located a way in the app). Honestly it’s a blessing in disguise. If the state of NJ doesn’t care enough to fix a problem with their app, then maybe I don’t need to be contributing any more money towards the NJ lottery…it’s just a thought. But like everything else government related, fixes move at slower than a glacial pace.

iPhone 14 Auto Focus
The auto focus on the camera to scan tickets doesn’t work on the iPhone 14 Pro and also the 3 lines at the top right of the screen doesn’t work when I click it. I have to touch below and to the right to get to the menu. Can these be fixed? Everything else is great!

App should not have been released. It’s a disaster!
After downloading the new app the problems began. The second chance replay scanner is slow, then you have to look at your entries to see if your ticket was accepted. The collect and win section is a complete waste of time. Aside from the scanner being slow, the tickets are scanned incorrectly. For example, a two dollar ticket may scan for 6 symbols instead of two, and a ten dollar ticket may scan for 2 symbols instead of 10 symbols. I am tempted to delete my vip account instead of trying to navigate this horrible app.

Difficult to Enter Multiple Tickets
Please make it easier to enter multiple tickets without having to go through extra steps! I’ve still been using the old app to enter Collect N Win tickets because I can quickly scan a series of tickets by clicking twice rather than having to backtrack with each entry in order to scan again.

UPDATE: Downloaded the new app. It still doesn’t work. In addition, the website doesn’t work most of the time. It’s almost like they’re trying to force you to use the app but this app is garbage. I have no choice but to go to the store to check my tickets. It’s becoming too much of a hassle to play. This app stopped working almost immediately. Initially, it worked fine. Unfortunately, I got constant error messages every time I attempted to use it thereafter. Quite frankly, this app doesn’t deserve the one star. Don’t waste your time downloading it.

May 13 update - Was the tickets this time
Wasn’t the app’s problem this time. The printer where I got the tickets was bad and left out part of the barcode. The app is pretty good when everything works. Still, WHY ISN’T THERE A REAL SUPPORT LINK in the app or the App Store to report problems? We shouldn’t have to report issues in a review or by phone.

The update is horrible, go back to what it was before.
Like my father used to say, if it’s not broken, don’t fix it. The update, with the new format, and then continuous updates with the same format is horrible. Go back to the way that it was, where you would swipe up and down, vertical, to see each game and dollar, amount and numbers, makes no sense to swipe across from left to right. Please revamp the app, so it’s clear, concise and easy to read and see.

Don’t waste your space
I downloaded this app about a year ago, and when I tried to scan the scratch off ticket, it gave me an error message period so I deleted the app and got some scratch offs recently and re-downloaded the app with the same problem. Despite all the negative reviews on different site the New Jersey lottery doesn’t seem feel that this is important enough to fix so the app still doesn’t work. It’s a piece of crap don’t even bother.

New update is horrible
It was so much easier when you were able to see the drawings up and down. I find it very tedious to see which games I want to play when swiping left to right. Not to mention the scanning. After each scan you have to close and it brings you back to the main menu so if you have multiple scans you need to hit the scan button and then the button to trigger the scan. The previous version was so much more efficient.

No usability testing perhaps
Added another tap each time to scan a ticket. Doing second chance scanning is horrible as well, I will still use the separate VIP app for that. Scanning tickets there is way easier. It looks nicer but if weren’t for the scanner, I wouldn’t even use the app, and now that is harder to use.

Feature Request
When you scan a ticket, it would be nice to have the ticket numbers displayed back. There are lots of issues with scanning and many times errors are reported. I don’t trust this and feedback of the scanned numbers would be terrific.

Please fix the scanner. Dies every 2nd or 3rd time scanning. And PLEASE fix the grammar. It’s not “$130 millions” - it’s “$130 million”. After today’s update the scanner appears to be working - thank you! The new ticket scanner is really awful. Only takes first ticket scanned then you get the invalid message. I hope you’re working on this!!!!

Version 9.7.1 scanner doesn’t work
I’ve always liked the basic capabilities of this app, but as of version 9.7.1, the scanner for tickets to see if you won or loss no longer works. I’ve tried this across multiple devices and the cameras never scans so you don’t know if you want or lost.

Payout info???
I was really enjoying the convenience of the app until the most recent update. Why in the world would get rid of the payout info for the games? Isn’t that one of the key pieces of info. I hope you’ll bring it back. Otherwise may as well use google.

Another terrible app with no developer support
No support, and no one cares. Leave it to the state of NJ to develop such a terrible app which accomplishes almost nothing. Want to check your tickets? Too bad. Feel like scanning for the “second chance” drawing? Oh well. The developers who made this app spent 30 minutes and then stopped caring, and it shows…

Missing numbers blocked by buttons
I’ve contacted NJ lottery twice about this. On the Mega and Powerball eslip six numbers are blocked by buttons. You can only play up to number 64. It goes to 70. This app is so New Jersey.

The NJ Lottery scanner works every so often! When it does work you may or may not be able to scan 1-3 tickets that’s it! There was a time when you could scan 30-40 tickets accurately with no problem but now forget it! I’m stunned that the developers of this App can not make this work! Unbelievable 🤷🏻‍♂️🙄

Expired sdk license error on ticket scan
Update your licenses! I can’t scan tickets due to expired sdk license. As someone else said, works after a restart. For my purposes, this app rates a 4 or 5 otherwise but you get 3 since you’re mismanaging your backend.

For the past few days the ticket scanner isn’t working. We updated our apps, it worked last night but isn’t working this morning. Are there plans to correct this issue? Otherwise had been using the app over a year and we loved it.

Terrible app zero stars
It does not scan tickets. You set up deadlines for second chance drawings but we can’t scan any tickets to enter. You should put a hold on contests until you get the app fixed. It’s causing an unfair advantage. How do we know the app is scanning and producing correct results when it’s barley working. Someone needs to fix this ASAP.

I don’t know who’s in charge but somebody needs to stay up on the winning tickets! Sometimes you say where tickets are won, sometimes you don’t. Do better! Y’all got too much money coming through there to not have somebody updating where the winning tickets were sold.

Worst app.
You can tell this app is probably made and ran by the state of NJ because like the useless state government it works about 10% of the time. If you are from NJ and have ever had to deal with any state employees then you would understand the level of useless-ness this is. Surprised I don’t have to pay for this app like everything else in this state.

Makes absolutely no sense why you released an update that caused this app to be non-functional! It was working perfectly fine until I updated it. Since the update, I am not able to scan tickets to check them or to enter them in the second chance drawing. PLEASE GET IT TOGETHER!!!!!

This is the worst update ever. You can’t check your tickets anymore and you can’t even download your tickets to the million dollar replay. Doesn’t Apple check this before approving it if there are any issues and bugs? Horrible app!!

Ticket scanner is worthless
The only reason to have this app is to scan your ticket. And since the last update it doesn’t work. It won’t focus on the barcode. It’s blurry and won’t scan.
