Hey hey, here we go! Check your Take 5 lottery tickets guys. Somebody in Rensselaer County could be sitting on some pretty serious money right now and they may not even know it.
If you played Take 5 from the New York State Lottery on Thursday night, your winning ticket could be worth over $20,000 dollars according to a report from News 10 ABC.
Last night's Take 5 numbers were 10,12,13, 25, and 27 and according to the NY State Lottery, two winners will split the grand prize. One winner was a quick pick sold at the Stewart's, 127 Congress St. in Troy and the other was from a convenience store in Nassau, NY.
While $21K isn't necessarily life-changing money, during a pandemic you can do a heck of a lot worse than winning a few months of bills, groceries, and still have some left over for a winter vacation.
And it's no easy feat. Smartluck.com says the odds of winning the Take 5 first prize jackpot in New York are one in 575,757.
You choose five numbers from 1 to 39 to play New York Take Five. Each game is $1 to play and drawings are held every day.
The Capital Region has had its share of big-time fistfuls of cash within the last year or so from the New York State Lottery. Back in September, there was a $23,892.50 Take 5 winner who bought the lucky ticket in Mechanicville.
A year ago in January, a scratch-off called "Make My Year" was sold at the Cumberland Farms in Glens Falls. It was a 2.5 million dollar hit for one lucky Capital Region native.

And Of course, the granddaddy of them all; back in September 2020, a 95 million dollar Powerball winning jackpot ticket was sold in Saratoga County.
