Check out the Lottery Post Lottery Jackpots page, and you'll see that New York Lotto has the highest jackpot in the world right now!

The great part about playing NY Lotto at NY Lottery online is that you get 10 tickets for $10.  (As opposed to most lottos, which are 5 tickets for $10.)

          Who cares when the jackpot is $40 mil??  Prize return means zip, nada when the jackpot is big.

            I agree. And big jackpots are exactly what NY Lotto was designed to generate. The overall prize pool may only be 40% (as we've all been told), but out of that 75% goes to the jackpot. That's 30% of all sales going to the jackpot. So the jackpot payout is about on par with the rest of the nation (FL Lotto pays 31.5% of sales to the jackpot). That's yet another reason the other payouts are so bad. But most players don't care about that, they're only after the big kahuna.

              I think it's more a statement about powerball and megamillions that a 40 million pot is higher. People that claim jackpots aren't important aren't looking at the sales figures.
