The NYS Gaming Commission Division of the Lottery said it will provide additional information regarding when tickets may be cashed at New York Lottery Customer Service Centers and video lottery facilities.
Lottery officials added that the $5,538 payment was recouped automatically via a Lottery account for uncashed tickets. There is no impact on aid to education or taxpayer funds.
Payout information for the May 10 drawing will be posted on the NY Lottery website.
