Why the New York Lottery’s numbers are a big deal

A huge lottery jackpot was announced in the United States Thursday, raising the number of winners to 13,928, the largest ever for a state lottery in terms of winners and a number that’s more than double the number in a single day in November 2016.

The total of winners was $1.27 billion, with $1 billion going to states and $900 million going to the winner’s home state of New York.

The number of states receiving the jackpot is $3.2 billion, up from $2.8 billion in 2016.

That’s up from the $3 billion total for the first three months of 2017.
