It may not be the multimillions of Mega Millions and Powerball. But, chances are whoever bought the ticket with the winning numbers for Sunday night’s Take 5 drawing couldn’t care less.
The lone top-prize ticket, sold at Jericho Grocery & Convenience on East Jericho Turnpike in Huntington is worth a cool $54,385, according to the New York Lottery. The ticket matched the five winning numbers — 6, 10, 12, 20 and 32 — from the field of numbers from 1 to 39 drawn Sunday at 11:21 p.m., lottery officials said.
The ticket was the second jackpot winner sold on Long Island — and the second in Suffolk County — so far in August.
The other winner was for Saturday’s Take 5 drawing and was sold in Jamesport. That pot was split among four winners, however, according to the New York Lottery website.
For the Sunday night draw, 193 tickets had 4 of 5 correct numbers. Those were good for $422.50 each. Another 6,660 tickets had 3 of 5 correct numbers and were good for $20 each. The lottery website said an additional 69,959 tickets had 2 of 5 correct numbers and were good for one free ticket.
