The New York lottery officials are here to announce winners from two different areas within the New York State. According to the lottery officials, the winners are from Jamaica and West Seneca, who have won top prizes from the Take 5 game.
As always, the Take 5 game, powered by the New York lottery is here to announce more than one winner. It has always kept the tradition alive by making more than one winning announcement. This time, the officials are honoring one or two players from Jamaica, while they are honoring one player from West Seneca.
Jamaica Produces 1 or 2 Top Prize Winners
According to the officials, the Jamaica winner or winners participated in the March 4, draw for the Take 5. The draw that the Jamaica player(s) participated in took place in the evening.
The numbers that the players had to match to win the top prize money for the March 4 (evening) draw were 30-29-23-21-12. The player(s) matched all five numbers to win the top prize money of $46,417 for the March 4 draw.
This is where things become a little tricky, as there were two tickets that won the top prize. Therefore, the $46,417 prize money has been split among the players, each taking home prize money worth $23,208.50.
Surprisingly, both tickets were sold from the same store in Jamaica. As no one has shown up to claim the prize money, it can’t be said if it is one winner with two tickets or two different winners.
