New York State Lottery – Hey, You Never Know!


It's okay to dream big, especially when it comes to hitting the lottery because "Hey, You Never Know!" New York has the highest lottery ticket sales in the country, and this all began with The New York Lottery starting in 1967. The New York Lottery was started as an effort to provide revenue for public schools and it began with the slogan of "Your Chance of a Lifetime to Help Education." In the 2014-2015 fiscal year, the New York Lottery contributed $3.11 billion to help support education in New York State – about 14% of the total state education funding to public school districts. In the 47 year history of the lottery in New York, it has contributed $54.7 billion to state education, and has also paid out billions to lucky lottery players.

Quick Guide to NY Lottery Jackpot & Daily Games

Powerball
Draw days: Wednesdays and Saturdays
Draw time: 11:00 p.m.

Powerball has the highest winning potential of all of the New York Lottery games, and only costs $2 to play.  Players pick five numbers between 1 and 69, and one Powerball number from 1 to 26, or they may choose Quick Pick and have the computer pick for them at the time of purchase. For each Powerball draw, 50% of the sales for that draw are used for prize money, and of that amount, the first prize winner will win 68%, and the remaining prize money will be allocated amongst the other eight prize levels. The chances of winning a prize in the Powerball are 1 in 39, but the chances of winning the grand prize are 1 in 292,201,338.


Mega Millions
Draw days:  Tuesdays and Fridays
Draw time: 11:00 p.m.

Mega Millions, much like Powerball, requires the player to pick five numbers between 1 and 75, and a number between 1 and 15 for the Mega Ball number.  It costs $1 to play.  Like with the Power Ball, 50% of the sales for the draw are used as prize money, the first prize winner will receive 63% of that money, and those in the other eight prize levels will win smaller amounts.  The chances of winning a prize are 1 in 14.71, but the chances of winning the jackpot are 1 in 258,890,850.


New York Lotto
Draw days:  Wednesdays and Saturdays
Draw time: 11:21 p.m.

In the New York Lotto game, six winning numbers and a bonus number chosen between the numbers 1 and 59 are drawn in a $1 play.  40% of the sales of New York Lotto cards are allocated for prize money. The odds of winning the New York Lotto are 1 in 46.02


Take 5
Draw day: Nightly
Draw time: 11:21 p.m.

Players can wager between $1 and $5 per game card, and choose five numbers from 1 to 39.  Take 5 has better odds of winning, with 1 in 8.77 receiving a prize, but the maximum payout is much lower than the other games, at $57,575.70.


Numbers and Win 4
Draw day: Twice daily
Draw time: Midday: 12:20 p.m. - 12:30 p.m., Evening: 7:30 p.m. - 7:40 p.m.

Numbers features three sets of balls, numbered 1 through 9 that are drawn twice daily.  Prizes vary each day.  Win 4 is played like Numbers, but instead uses 4 machines.  These games only award players who have the winning number in the exact order.   The odds of having the matching Numbers are 1 in 1,000, and payoff for $1 play is $500, and the odds of having the matching Win 4 is 1 in 10,000, and thus the $1 game can have a $5,000 payoff.


Instant Scratch-Off Games
The New York Lottery offers over 50 different instant scratch-off games, which range in price from $1 and $30. Lottery retailers can dispense prizes of up to $600, but larger winnings must be collected from New York Lottery officials.


Responsible Gaming
If you believe that you or someone you know suffers from problem gambling or a gambling addiction, there are resources to help you to quit.  If your gambling disrupts any major area of your life because of increased preoccupation with gambling, a need to increase your bets frequently, or restlessness or irritability when attempting to stop gambling, you may be experiencing problem gambling. At Gamblers Anonymous, you can speak with someone over the phone on its Long Island hotline at 855-222-5542, or find a meeting near you using their online GA meeting map. The National Council on Problem Gambling also offers a 24-hour confidential national hotline at 1-800-522-4700.
