New York Lotto

New York Lotto takes place every Wednesday and Saturday. The jackpot starts at $2 million and increases by $300,000 each time it isn't won, with no cap on the how much it can reach. As a result, the largest payout was $90 million in January 1991, which was shared between nine people. The single largest win on New York Lotto was $65 million won by one ticket holder in Sunnyside, NY in June 2007.
