New York Lotto

New York has many lottos, one of which is simply called the New York Lotto. Or just the lotto to the locals of New York. Unfortunately though, the New York lotto has been in slow decline for many years now since the introduction of many newer lottos into New York. This being said though, the New York lotto is still a great lotto that has a lot to offer anyone wanting to win some money playing lottos.

The New York lotto ticket costs only $1 to buy in New York. Of course, you will pay slightly more for the ticket if you purchase it through one of the many online lotto vendors are those companies need to make a profit too. For your $1 purchase you will pick 6 numbers from a selection of 59 numbers. Then you must pick a bonus number too.

When the draw is made you will have to match all 6 of your numbers plus the bonus number to win the Jackpot. The draw is made every Wednesday and Saturday, offering all players two amazing chances of winning every single week. Unfortunately though, it is because it is drawn on a Wednesday and a Saturday that the popularity of the New York Lotto is in decline. This is because the PowerBall lotto is also drawn every Wednesday and Saturday and it offers much larger prizes than the New York Lotto does.

The ticket for the PowerBall is also the same price as that of the New York Lotto so many of the people playing the lotto will choose to play the PowerBall over the New York lotto instead of just playing both.

With this said though, the New York lotto is still certainly a lotto that is worth playing for everyone who enjoys playing the lotto. The starting jackpot for the New York lotto is still a massive sum of $2 million, which would still be wonderful to win. It just does not seem that large when compared to the other lottos on offer.

In 2012 the rollover amount also changed down from $500,000 to only $300,000. This was brought about due to the decline in popularity of the New York Lotto because people where favouring the PowerBall instead.

However, if you are wanting to play lottos online, adding the New York Lotto to your repertoire of games will still be a good decision as the amount of money available to be won is still large. So get involved.
