Lottery numbers dating back to 1988
While the biggest New York Lottery jackpots have come from the bigger multi-state games (Mega Millions and Powerball), there are plenty more single state lotteries that are certainly not to be sniffed at.
Currently there are eight other lotteries in New York: New York Lotto, Midday Numbers, Midday Win 4, Numbers, Take 5, Win 4, Pick 10, Sweet Million.
The lottery was closed by the state after the agency in charge of announcing winning tickets did so with tickets that state lottery officials knew hadn't been sold.
Apart from that controversy, the history of the New York Lottery has been without any major incidents, other than a large number of huge jackpots.
In fact, none do as the New York Lottery is the largest and most profitable lottery in North America with more than billion going to education in the state every year.
The NY Lottery was also one of the pioneers of government-run lotteries in the U.
The winning numbers were generated automatically by the NY lottery number picker after Mike Barth, who bought the ticket, lost his place in the queue after stepping out to buy a candy bar.
The only time during this period that the New York lottery has not been in action was following a scandal in the 1970s.
Huge jackpots and a great variety of lotto style and instant games make it easy to see why NY lottery tickets are in such high demand.
And as the lottery itself says: "Hey, you never know".
