How to Play New York Lottery’s Pick 10

A little luck and some great Pick 10 picks could win you $500,000

When it comes to the lottery game Pick 10, more numbers mean MORE chances to win.

Why? You pick 10 numbers, but the New York Lottery draws 20. This provides a better chance of winning a prize in the Pick 10 NY.

Are You A Pick 10 Winner?

Winning numbers are drawn every evening at approximately 8:30 PM EST. If you’re a Jackpocket user, you get automatically notified by email when you win.

For a Pick 10 payout of $600 and under (the threshold amount in New York), Jackpocket credits your account for the full amount. If you win more than $600, we arrange to have the ticket securely delivered to you so that you can claim your Pick 10 NY prize from the NY state lottery.

If you bought your Pick 10 ticket in person from a brick-and-mortar retailer, check the NY state lottery website for more information on how to claim your prize from a retailer or via a claim form with the New York Lottery.


Do I have to pay taxes on lottery winnings?

Federal and state taxes apply to all lottery prizes over $5,000. If you reside in New York or Yonkers, expect to pay local taxes as well. If fortune shines on you, it is recommended to contact an accountant to determine how winning will impact your taxes. 

What happens to the money I spend on lottery tickets?

Part of your lottery ticket goes into the prize levels for winnings. But that’s not all! Feel good about playing the New York Lottery knowing that a portion of the ticket cost also goes to fund education in New York. Revenue is distributed to school districts based on a school district’s size and income level. Larger school districts with lower income receive proportionally larger shares of the lottery revenue to help their schools.

Does the grand prize ever exceed $500,000?

No. The grand prize doesn’t roll over if there are no winners and will never exceed $500,000.
