How does it work?

The game uses a 6/59 matrix that is players have to choose 6 main New York Lotto numbers from the guess range of 1 to 59. To hit the jackpot you will have to match all 6 winning NY Lotto numbers. The 7th number also called the bonus ball is drawn to define the second prize winner. The second prize winning combination includes 5 of the 6 main winning NY Lotto numbers and the bonus ball. To make the numbers selection process easier and save time the players may get New York Lotto numbers randomly picked by computer using the so-called “Quick Pick” option similar to the “Lucky Deep” feature used in UK National Lottery and other European lotteries such as EuroMillions. NY Lotto numbers will be automatically generated for your lottery ticket entry. In case there is no jackpot winner the grand prize will be rolled over to the next draw.
