Also, there were 2,241 fourth-prize winners, matching four numbers for $28.00 each, and there were 57,938 fifth-prize winners, matching three numbers for $1.00 each.

That's not a bad jackpot size. I wonder how high it will get.

    That's just fantastic. Wouldn't it be great if it paid 50%? Just imagine, $6 for 3 numbers in NY Lotto. It would be possible with just a 50% payout.

    But back to the jackpot, for the odds you can't do much better. After taxes the cash option would be about $15 million, compare that the the odds of about one 1 in 22 million.
