Some lotteries limit the number of times the jackpot can roll over. Other lotteries have no such limit and will continue to roll over until one lucky player successfully matches all the required numbers to win the jackpot.

This happened when the New Jersey Pick 6 rollover ended this week after nearly three months of rolling over the prize a whopping 23 times. But it's nowhere near the record for long rollovers as you'll read.

Before this draw ended the drought on Monday, no one had hit a Pick 6 jackpot since Dec. 29, 2014 when a 67-year-old Cape May County man won a $9.1 million jackpot.

Pick 6 have a history of long rollovers. The previous one was more than four months long, starting Aug. 25 2014, and rolled over 34 times in the twice-weekly game.
