A Corona deli sold a winning lottery ticket worth over $30,000 on Tuesday, Sept. 8, the New York Lottery announced on Wednesday.

The winning Take-5 ticket, worth $30,281.50, was purchased at G S Deli and Grocery Inc, located at 41-36 Junction Blvd. The ticket holder, who has one year to claim the cash prize, wasn’t the only person in New York City to select the winning numbers on Tuesday.

A lottery player in the Bronx selected the same five numbers and will also be awarded $30,281.50, according to the New York Lottery.

The Take-5 drawing is televised every night at 11:21 p.m. Players select five numbers from a pool of one to 39.

Queens has continued to have a hot hand in the lottery game.

A lottery ticket worth over $63,000 was purchased in College Point and was selected as the winning ticket for the Sept. 3 Take-5 drawing.  Just a few days earlier, a winning ticket worth over $31,000 was purchased at a Richmond Hill deli and selected for the Aug. 29 drawing.
