Lucky lotto player snags $34,000 TAKE 5 ticket in Buffalo

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A lucky New York Lottery player picked up a TAKE 5 ticket and will soon have an extra $34,000 after matching all five numbers.

A Grand Island customer of Buffalo’s Carl’s Lotto Market on Dick Road in Buffalo picked the right ticket before the Feb. 6 drawing, joining nearly 100,000 other winners — although that customer hit the jackpot.

Most TAKE 5 players won small prizes, but the grand prize will be issued for $34,434.

The lucky winner can claim the winning prize at any of the Lottery Customer Service Centers across New York, including Buffalo’s center on Genesee Street. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
