The New York Lottery announced on Monday, Dec. 13, that a top-prize winning ticket was sold for the Dec. 12 TAKE 5 midday drawing. The ticket, worth $19,197.50, was purchased at He & Jay Stationery LLC, located at 123 Einstein Loop in the Baychester section of the borough.

Take 5 players with midday and evening draws on the same ticket must check their numbers at nylottery.ny.gov to determine if they have the winning numbers for the corresponding midday or evening drawing.

TAKE 5 numbers are drawn from a field of one through 39. The drawing is televised twice daily at 2:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. A Lottery draw game prize of any amount may be claimed up to one year from the date of the drawing.

New York Lottery officials say the lottery continues to be North America’s largest and most profitable lottery, contributing $3.59 billion in fiscal year 2020-21 to help support education in New York State.
