During the New York Lotto draw, the game selects six numbers plus one bonus ball number. These numbers are between 1 and 59. The player selects six numbers on their play ticket. These can be purchased both online and in-person at physical retailers. There are different draws and games available to players with varying prizes.
The odds of winning the jackpot are calculated to be just over 45 million to 1. The odds of winning the smallest prize is 1 in 96. The latter is higher than other lotteries but they have a draw that includes fewer numbers, so the chances of a smaller prize are higher with them.
Any prize that is worth $600 or less can be collected from the retailer where the ticket was bought. Anything over this will need to be collected from one of the claim centers. More information about their locations can be found on the lottery’s website.
