About New York Lotto

New York Lotto is one of the biggest lottery games in America, offering a great combination of huge jackpots with the better odds of a state lottery game.

New York Lotto gives you millions of reasons to play twice a week. All it takes is a dollar and a dream. You never know, the next big lotto winner could be you!

How to Play

For each ticket, pick six numbers from 1 through 59.
Or, have your computer select the numbers for you by clicking the Fill Blanks with Quick Picks button.
With our online system you can choose the number of tickets to play in increments of 10.
You can play the same numbers for more than one drawing. To play up to 52 consecutive drawings, choose the number of drawings in the selection box when you place your order.

Drawings are held Wednesday and Saturday nights at 11:21 p.m. Eastern Time, and the results are displayed on NYLotteryOnline.com minutes after the drawing takes place. You can place an order until 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time on the day of the draw.

Prize Payments
Following each drawing, we will automatically check each ticket played at NYLotteryOnline.com to determine the winning tickets. All players will be notified by e-mail of the drawing results, as well as any prize(s) they have won. The notification e-mails are normally sent by 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time the morning after the drawing.

If you win any prize less than $600, your prize is instantly credited to your NYLotteryOnline.com online account. You may then choose to use the funds in your online account towards a future purchase at NYLotteryOnline.com or any of our affiliated online lottery sites, or you may choose to withdraw your funds. For example, if you win a $100 prize, your online account will be credited the entire $100 prize, and you may use that $100 credit towards purchases at Mega Millions Online, Powerball Online, Florida Lottery Online, New York Lottery Online, Euro Millions Online, El Gordo Online, UK Lottery Online, or any of our other services. Or, you may request that we send you the $100.

Because New York requires that the Cash Option/Annuity Option is selected at the time lottery tickets are purchased, we purchase all tickets with the Cash Option. The Cash Option payout is each jackpot ticket winner's portion of the prize pool that is available immediately for investment (approximately half of the advertised jackpot amount).
