Winner winner chicken dinner! Someone in Central New York is $35,000 richer this morning after winning the lottery.

When you hear about New York Lottery winners most of the time it's people in New York City. But occasionally, there's one lucky player who hits it big in the smaller cities outside the Big Apple. Today is one of those day.

Take 5 Numbers

The numbers for the Tuesday, February 6 nightly drawing were:


One winning ticket for the nightly drawing was sold at the ADK Food and Fuel off Higby Road in Frankfort. It's a ticket worth $34,640.00.

Not a bad way to wake up and start the day. It may not be enough to channel your inner Johnny Paycheck and tell the boss to Take This Job and Shove It. But it is a nice chunk of change to buy a car, put a down payment on a house or even pay a few bills.

Congrats to the lucky Take 5 winner, whoever you are. Whatever you do with your winnings may you put it to good use.

There is no “Mega Millions sweepstake international lottery program,” no “Mega Million Jackpot Winners List,” and no “Mega Millions International Lottery.”

Only Way to Win is to Buy a Ticket

The only way to hit a lottery jackpot is to buy a ticket and match some or all of the winning numbers.

Winners never have to pay any fees to claim a real lottery prize. If you are asked to pay money, it is a scam.
