Some jackpots are in excess of five million US dollars. If this is not a motivation for consumers to bet, I don’t know what is.

The New York lottery is one of the biggest lotteries in the US and was started in 1967. It is governed by the New York state gaming commission to ensure that rules and regulations are adhered to. Part of the lottery winnings goes to the state as donations. New York lotteries are subject Federal and state taxes. Currently, there are two major lotteries: jackpot games and daily games. The jackpot games are leading with a few rolling over the jackpot after they were no jackpot winners. Over three billion dollars go to education from the New York lottery every year.
The mega millions jackpot was sixty-seven million in the past week while the next week the jackpot will be seventy-six million US dollars. The highest winner of the previous draw was $2,500 out of the sixty million jackpot. That’s a sizeable bonus mostly because there hasn’t been a jackpot winner in a while so the jackpot is rolled over. Powerball has a jackpot of fifty million for this week up from the forty million jackpots last week. The highest winners were 22 players who won $100 each out of forty million. New York Lotto has a jackpot of five million nine hundred thousand US dollars while last week’s jackpot was five million six hundred thousand only.
These are the major jackpot games in New York lottery with nothing less than five million dollars. I wish those who try their hand good luck, a lot is at stake. On the daily lotteries, Pick10 has a jackpot of five hundred thousand dollars which has not changed since yesterday. The other daily lotteries like Midday Numbers and Numbers have winning draw of $500 on a daily basis. Midday Win 4 and Win 4 winners get $5,000 on a daily basis.
