SCHENECTADY, NY — The New York Lottery today announced Candi Maestri of Fulton won $25,000 on the Lottery’s Cash Multiplier instant game. Maestri’s winning ticket was purchased at the Lakeland Mini Mart at 915 State Fair Blvd in Syracuse.

Lottery prizes valued at $601 to $999,999 may be claimed at any of the Lottery’s seven stand-alone Customer Service Centers located in Buffalo; Rochester; Syracuse; Schenectady; Fishkill; Manhattan; and Garden City, and within any of the Lottery’s eight gaming facilities including 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 over $3 billion in fiscal year 2010-2011 to help support education in New York State. The Lottery’s aid represents over 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.
