LOTTERY WINNERS

If you bought a lottery ticket in Uniondale or New Hyde Park on Tuesday, double-check it. You might just be $34,532 richer.

The two winning tickets for Tuesday's Take 5 drawing were sold at a 7- Eleven, at 566 Jerusalem Ave., in Uniondale, and Stop & Shop, at 653 Hillside Ave. in New Hyde Park, according to a news release from the New York Lottery.

The winning numbers were 02-04-20-26-29. Tickets expire one year after drawing.
In addition to the two top prizes, 246 players from across the state each purchased $421 winning tickets by matching four out of five numbers for the drawing.

Winners can claim their tickets at any of the lottery’s customer service centers statewide, including the Long Island office at 45 South Service Rd. in Plainview.
