Lottery prizes valued at $601 to $999,999 may be claimed at any of the Lottery’s stand-alone Customer Service Centers located in Buffalo; Rochester; Syracuse; Schenectady; Fishkill; Manhattan; and Garden City, and within any of the Lottery’s video gaming facilities including Resorts World New York Casino at Aqueduct; Saratoga Casino & Raceway; Monticello Casino & Raceway; Tioga Downs Casino; Batavia Downs Casino; Empire City Casino at Yonkers Raceway; Hamburg Casino at the Fairgrounds; Finger Lakes Casino & Racetrack; and Vernon Downs Casino & Hotel.

The New York Lottery continues to be North America’s largest and most profitable Lottery, contributing close to $2.9 billion in fiscal year 2011-2012 to help support education in New York State. The Lottery’s aid represents nearly 15 percent of total state education funding to local school districts.

Lottery revenue is distributed to local school districts by the same statutory formula used to distribute other state aid to education. It takes into account both a school district’s size and its income level; larger, lower-income school districts receive proportionately larger shares of Lottery school funding.
