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.
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.
