According to CBS 6 News, there were three top prize winners in the Take 5 drawing, so all verified winners will each grab a piece of the 60,000 top prize.  One of the winners according to the source bought their ticket at the Stewart's Shop located at 120 Nott Terrace in Schenectady.

The winning #'s from last night's drawing were: 3 7 8 14 15
The Jackpot split 3 ways paid out $20,704 per winner.

The other two winners came from Holbrook, New York and Belmont, New York.

While 20K isn't necessarily life-changing money, during a pandemic you can do a heck of a lot worse than winning what amounts to a down payment on a new home, or a new car perhaps.

And it's no easy feat. Lottery USA says the odds of winning the Take 5 first prize jackpot in New York are one in 575,757.  A few weeks ago, someone in Albany County scored 60K as the top prize winner in Take 5.

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.
