The winning ticket was the fifth sold in the borough in the past month and the second sold at Village Card & Gifts since April 4.

On April 9, two prize-winning tickets, both worth nearly $13,000, were sold in Queens – one at Resorts World Casino in South Ozone Park and the other at Enjoy Convenience Store, located at 76-15 37th Ave., in Jackson Heights.

Three days before, a Take-5 ticket, worth $32,113, was sold a Bayside convenience store and selected for the April 6 drawing.

Two days before that, a winning ticket worth $55,105 was sold at Village Card & Gifts and selected during the April 4 drawing.

Winning ticket holders have up to one year from the date of the drawing to claim their prize.
