NEWBURGH, NY (PIX11) — The New York lottery shared some disappointing news Monday; after mistakenly saying Sunday that a lucky lottery player in New York was set to take home nearly three quarters of a million dollars, officials said the ticket was actually worth far less.
The second-prize winning ticket for the New York LOTTO is worth $313,715. It was sold for Saturday’s drawing at Smokes For Less on North Plank Road in Newburgh, officials said.
The winning numbers for the Saturday New York LOTTO drawing were: 23-25-39-47-51-52, with a bonus number of 30. The winning ticket matched five of the six numbers and the bonus number.
Players need match six numbers drawn from a field of one to 59 to win the LOTTO jackpot. New York LOTTO drawings are televised at around 11:20 p.m. every Wednesday and Saturday.
Winners have up to one year from the date of the drawing to claim their prize.
Other winners in New York this weekend won $50,000 each. Someone also won a little more than $20,000.
Lottery players interested in trying to win really big can turn to the next Powerball drawing. The jackpot will be worth an estimated $1 billion.
