The New York Lottery today announced the name of a Lewiston Powerball player who won $10,000 in the drawing held on June 18. The winner, William Wysocki, purchased the winning ticket at the A Plus Mini-mart at 890 Center St., in the Village of Lewiston.
The New York Lottery continues to be North America's largest and most profitable Lottery, contributing more than $3 billion in fiscal year 2010-11 to help support education in New York state. The Lottery's aid represents more than 15 percent of total state education funding to local school districts.
Lottery revenue is distributed to local school districts by the same statutory formula used to distribute other state aid to education. It takes into account both a school district's size and its income level; larger, lower-income school districts receive proportionately larger shares of Lottery school funding.
