Who needs a $1,200 federal stimulus check when you could pocket $19,713 from the state?
That’s the exact amount some lucky duck just won by playing TAKE-5 through the New York State Lottery, officials announced today.
The winning ticket was sold at West Babylon Card & Gift, known locally as the 50% Card Store, in the Lidle shopping center.
This was for the June 10 drawing.
Winning tickets were also sold in Staten Island and West Hempstead.
