For a “company” that makes billions a year they should invest some money into this app
Crashes, constantly have to log back in, numbers don’t get posted timely. Now, the new scanner doesn’t work. If the lottery had any competition they’d be out of business. Poorly run just like any other govt “business” since they can’t get fired for doing a crappy job. Guess how many companies who make 1.5 billion dollars a year have apps that don’t work? Answer? 1. NJ Lottery!!! The other companies pay people to fix the apps or go out of business! Also, where’s the Cash4Life and Powerball numbers after a drawing? Why does it take until next morning to see them? I can get live updates on a Turkish women’s soccer game on a crappy sports bet app but they can’t update numbers on 1 billion dollar jackpots in a timely manner?

Error issues all the time
This app needs some serious TLC. Sometimes the app works perfectly but most of the time it does not and it’s very frustrating. The app sometimes closes on its own for no reason, the scanner option freezes or doesn’t scan, and once you click on a game for the info, you have to go all the way back to the home page in order to access the next game. If the freezing, not loading and closing out for no reason was addressed, this app would be a 5 star and have more options than any other NJ lottery app!

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.

Scanner seems more sensitive but it does work
Thought I had a scanner issue but it turned out the tickets were the issue. The barcodes weren’t printed fully. It would have been nice if the app gave an error message instead of just hanging there… One suggestion, let us reorder our “favorites.” The tickets are listed in the order you create them. Also, everyone complains about contacting support. WHY ISN’T THERE A REAL SUPPORT LINK in the app to report problems? We shouldn’t have to report issues in a review.

A royal pain in the backside
Every time I use this app, I have to keep drumming my finger on what I want to click on before it finally responds. I thought maybe it was my phone but every other app on my phone has no such issues. It makes the app difficult to use at best. In a future update, can we put the menu somewhere other than way up in the very corner? I suspect that this may be part of the problem. The corners are where the issue manifests itself most of the time.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Have Same Question ….. Anybody Reading/Listening
The recent update has made it worst and is not fit for any stars but am forced to give 1 star for submitting this review.. It does not recognize the official tickets, when scanned or manually enteeed for the Collect n Win. If the Organization is not interested in the ‘Collect n Win’ program, they could have saved money by stopping the ads for it rather than creating a program to discourage the players.

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.

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.

Scanner no longer works
I’ve had this app for a while, and the scanner used to work like a charm. However, for the past year, no matter what I do delete the app reinstall it the scanner does not work. Extremely frustrating as it is the main reason I downloaded it. I cannot check tickets nor can I, enter two second chance drawings.

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…

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 🤷🏻‍♂️🙄

Show scanned numbers
Since there are numerous posts about scanner issues, it would be a great feature to show the actual numbers that were scanned. I personally don’t trust this feature to work as advertised.

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.

Second Chance Club and Collect & win don’t register
The app is only useful if you want to check your ticket to see if you are a winner. The Collect and win and Second chance club will not register your tickets. Skip the app and go to your local lottery store to check your tickets. This app is useless.

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.

App is garbage
When I first downloaded a few years ago worked ok. Progressively has gotten worse. Mobile menu doesn’t work and scanner doesn’t work. Typical I guess of state agencies that don’t have funds to do properly or they stink at actually testing their stuff on different devices.

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.
