If you win any prize less than $600, your

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

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).
