Whether you win or not, the New York lottery is a fun way to support education in the state. In fact, the lottery has generated more than $10 billion in gross sales since its inception. Despite its popularity, the lottery has faced criticism in the past. Some of the critics’ complaints are that the lottery hasn’t been innovative enough. Other critics have pointed out that New York’s taxes on lottery winnings are some of the highest in the country. Those who purchase lottery tickets must pay an additional 3.876 percent to the state and an additional 24 percent to the federal government. The taxes also apply to winnings of more than $5,000.
