How to Play Take 5:

Go to any New York Lottery retailer, and pick up a playcard. Select 5 numbers from 1 through 39, and fill in your chosen squares as instructed on the playcard. Or save time by choosing Quick Pick and letting the computer randomly select numbers for you. Each playcard has 5 game panels, each with squares numbered 1 through 39, so you can play up to 5 times on each playcard. The minimum play is $1 for 1 game. Or you can play up to $5 on the 5-game playcard. Give your playcard to the retailer, and you'll receive a separate ticket for each playcard processed. Check your ticket(s) to verify that the numbers and the dates printed are correct. Select the number of drawings in which you wish to participate. You can play up to 7 drawings in advance - all on one ticket. That's it! Then all you have to do is wait and see if you're a winner! Watch our live TV drawings every night at 11:21 p.m. Click here to find the TV station your area and other ways to find out if you've won!

If your 5 numbers match the winning Take Five numbers drawn, then you win or share the First Prize Jackpot. Match 4 winning numbers for Second Prize, match 3 winning numbers for Third Prize, and match just 2 winning numbers for a Quick Pick Free Play, which is automatically generated by the retailer's terminal upon validation of ticket.
