From the NY State Lottery Commission:
The New York Lottery recently announced that a Batavia Take Five player won $32,994. Lori Siedlecki purchased the winning ticket at the Wilson Farms store at 355 W. Main St. in the City of Batavia.
The New York Lottery continues to be North America's largest and most profitable Lottery, earning more than $39.3 billion in education support statewide since its founding more than 40 years ago.
It contributed nearly $2.67 billion in fiscal year 2009-2010 to help support education in New York State, which was more than 12 percent of total state education funding to local school districts.
Lottery revenue is distributed to local school districts by the same statutory formula used to distribute other state aid to education. It takes into account both a school district's size and its income level; larger, lower-income school districts receive proportionately larger shares of lottery school funding.
