TRENTON, N.J. — The New Jersey Lottery is launching a new game that will mostly be featured at bars, restaurants and bowling alleys.

Quick Draw is a keno-style game in which numbers are electronically drawn and displayed on TV screens at 400 retail locations. Drawings are held every five minutes.

Players can purchase a Quick Draw play for a $1 minimum up to a $10 maximum. Prizes range from $1 up to $1,000,000 depending on the purchase amount.

Players select from 1 to 10 numbers out of a pool of 80 numbers. The odds and potential prizes are determined by the quantity of spots selected. Players win by matching some or all of their numbers to the 20 numbers drawn.

Players may select their own numbers or let the machine pick.
