    Congrats on your  PB win.  Every little bit helps.

     

    According to the NY lottery, about 70% of their sales are in NYC, which explains why all the winners are down there.

     

    When it finally shows a winner in Albany County, it better be me :)

    The other county you'll see that produces a fair amount of winners is Erie.  ie Buffalo.

    I would guess that a large percentage of that remaining 30%  living in NY State other than in NYC is in Erie County.

    It's all about where the most tickets are sold, which is obviously where the most people live. I get a kick out of LP posters that complain about many PB and MM wins comming from NY.  You'll also see JP winners from Florida, Texas, and California alot. That's because those states have the largest populations.

    I hate it when I see a Take5 winner from Dutchess County. That's because I know it's gonna be a while before another one happens. 

    Here's one for you.  What age group plays the lottery the most?   Ages 45 - 64.   Of that, what age group buys the most tickets.  My guess is that it's the senior citizens.  I dont know why seniors play more, but if you look at pix of the winners, while you do see younger faces, you'll see more older faces than younger looking ones.  that woman in Rhode Island that just won the big PB JP is 81................

    About playing the lottery --  You will lose more than you win. Until you hit a jackpot.  Then everything changes!

      Below is a list of the 25 most populated counties in NY.  You can see why so many of the winners come from Kings and Queens counties.  The 4 counties around the capital region where I am do not even add up to a 1/3 of the population of Kings county.

       

      I havent seen a winner in Albany County in long time, or I missed it when scanning through the results.

       

      New York total population by county

      County                      Total Population
      Kings               total population - 2,508,820

        Edit: cleaned up the list a little more for easier reading

        Whenever I'm in or around NYC I buy a ticket or two.   It hasn't done me any good, but I always think that maybe being part of that sales pool might help.

        Remember too that NYC sees thousands of people every day that commute to their jobs in Manhattan (New York County) from New Jersey, Long Island, Connecticut, Westchester, Putnam, Dutchess, Rockland and Orange Counties.  I gotta believe there are more than a few folks in that group that buy tickets near where they work.   

        From time to time, I see a JP winner in either Albany or Schenectady Counties.  Not many in Rensselaer.  I'd say Dutchess see's one JP winner every six months.  I'm surprised Onondaga (Syracuse area) doesnt seem to produce all that many winners.  I think I've seen more Broome County winners (Binghampton) than Syracuse.

        I wonder about the distribustion of scratch off winners.  I'd guess more would be sold in NYC than anywhere else in the state, so it stands to reason more big prize scratch-off winners are located in the NYC metro area.

          I would think the Buffalo/Rochester area would produce more winners.  Also outside of NYC It seems like I see alot of Stewarts & Wegmans get a lot of winners.

            Not surprising.  Wegmans is fairly ubiquitous in western and central NY and Stewarts has over 300 locations, mostly in eastern NY.

                ok, so the person that bought the *5 matching* tickets from the same store made out as follows 

                5 x 10,423 = 52,115

                if they had ONLY bought one ticket the only 6 winners as follows

                6 winners of 104,230.00 = 17,371

                made 34,744 MORE!!

                NICE!

                  Yeah I have seen that many winners without a single QP or FP in it.

                   

                  It defnitely looks like the one person had 5 tickets and someone else might have had two tickets.

                    That's the one thing I fear the most with Take 5: hitting the jackpot only to find it's been split up multiple ways.  I'd be angry if I was the ticket buyer in Manhattan, Amityville, or Brooklyn.

                      Well Brat, while I agree with you that a Take5 jackpot being split among multiple players stinks, you might as well resign yourself to the fact that chances are very good that will happen if you are fortunate enough to win a JP.

                      The single Take5 JP winner is the exception.  Most days multiple winners are seen, and hardly ever is there not a winner from NYC or Long Island.

                      I've seen the phenomenom where many JP winning lines/combos are sold at the same store before.  It happened last year in NYC.  (Brooklyn if my memory serves me correctly.)  Saavy players do it for one reason.  It gives them a larger share of the JP.  I think it's probably more commonplace than most people realize.  I'm sure the NYS Lottery can easily see it happening every day.  We only see it when a JP is won by someone that played the same winning line repeatedly.

                      Sweet Million isnt pari-mutuel, but there are hardly any JP winners. (Actually SM becomes pari-mutuel if more than 5 players win a million dollars.)  As for me, I'll still play T5, and maybe I'll try the multiple lines of the same set of 5 numbers thing.  That said, I think if I do that kind of thing, I'm better off doing it in either Mega or PowerBall. (with either the PowerPlay or Megaplier option played)  Look what happened in West Virginia not too long ago.

                      About playing the lottery --  You will lose more than you win. Until you hit a jackpot.  Then everything changes!

                        I dunno about the no QP's or FP's Kap.  Maybe, maybe not.

                        Seems like too many winners for there not to be any QP's.  The person who won with 5 lines had to be a player pick, but some of the others could have been QP's. Whoever at The NYS Lottery that listed the winners on the website may have forgot to add the fact that the line was a QP.  Could have been a human error/oversight is all I'm sayin.

                          Well Brat, while I agree with you that a Take5 jackpot being split among multiple players stinks, you might as well resign yourself to the fact that chances are very good that will happen if you are fortunate enough to win a JP.

                          The single Take5 JP winner is the exception.  Most days multiple winners are seen, and hardly ever is there not a winner from NYC or Long Island.

                          I've seen the phenomenom where many JP winning lines/combos are sold at the same store before.  It happened last year in NYC.  (Brooklyn if my memory serves me correctly.)  Saavy players do it for one reason.  It gives them a larger share of the JP.  I think it's probably more commonplace than most people realize.  I'm sure the NYS Lottery can easily see it happening every day.  We only see it when a JP is won by someone that played the same winning line repeatedly.

                          Sweet Million isnt pari-mutuel, but there are hardly any JP winners. (Actually SM becomes pari-mutuel if more than 5 players win a million dollars.)  As for me, I'll still play T5, and maybe I'll try the multiple lines of the same set of 5 numbers thing.  That said, I think if I do that kind of thing, I'm better off doing it in either Mega or PowerBall. (with either the PowerPlay or Megaplier option played)  Look what happened in West Virginia not too long ago.

                          "The single Take5 JP winner is the exception.  Most days multiple winners are seen, and hardly ever is there not a winner from NYC or Long Island."

                          True, true.  Wasn't that long ago that you'd either have no winner or a single winner with multiples being rare.  You're right, though, these days there's usually two or three winners a day.

                          And the NYC/LI thing makes sense as combined they make up about 57% of the entire state's population (NYC 42.5%, LI 14.5%).

                          "Sweet Million isnt pari-mutuel, but there are hardly any JP winners."

                          Indeed.  I've gotta think it's because of either the odds or the paltry lower-tier prize structure.  As for me, I play both games.  A split T5 jackpot is better than not hitting it at all, and of course I wouldn't turn my nose up at the $1M prize from Sweet Million.

                            I dunno about the no QP's or FP's Kap.  Maybe, maybe not.

                            Seems like too many winners for there not to be any QP's.  The person who won with 5 lines had to be a player pick, but some of the others could have been QP's. Whoever at The NYS Lottery that listed the winners on the website may have forgot to add the fact that the line was a QP.  Could have been a human error/oversight is all I'm sayin.

                            NYL puts a QP or FP after the county listed if its one of those.

                              I've seen that too.   But how did that get QP/FP get there?

                              My guess is that it's not a computer program inputting either the QP or FP. I'm thinking it could be a person doing it.  If it is a person, and if he/she didnt do it, then it would appear as if they were all player picks when they weren't. 

                              It's kind of second nature for me not to believe everything I see/read on The Web.  That's due to the fact I worked in data processing for more than 30 years. (and I'm still doing it too!) Computers are great, but people program and run them. Screw ups are commonplace because people arent perfect!

                              About playing the lottery --  You will lose more than you win. Until you hit a jackpot.  Then everything changes!
