Take-5 players in Queens have raked in a combined $205,000 playing the lottery game in the borough this month.
The latest addition to that monthly total came on Wednesday, when the New York Lottery announced that a bodega in Ridgewood sold a winning Take-5 ticket, worth $21,447, selected during the Tuesday, April 13, drawing.
The winning ticket, purchased at Mona Grocery, located at 59-30 Myrtle Ave., is the sixth winning ticket sold by a Queens retailer this month.
Over the weekend, a Take-5 ticket worth nearly $71,000 was sold at Village Card & Gifts, a Howard Beach convenience store. About a week prior, the same shop sold a winning ticket worth $55,105, which was selected during the April 4 drawing.
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 in Jackson Heights.
Five winning numbers, selected from a field of one to 39, are drawn every night at 10:30 p.m., for the Take-5 game.
Winning ticket holders have up to one year from the date of the drawing to claim their prize.
