  • The New York Lottery today announced the names of area Lottery players who claimed a winning scratch-off ticket from June 3 through June 9, 2012 and received a cash prize valued at $10,000 or more. The past week's winners include:
     *   Stephen Leonardo of Rochester who won $25,000 on the Money In The Bank scratch-off game. Leonardo's winning ticket was purchased at the Tops Market at 3740 Ridge Rd W in Greece.
     *   Linda Barber of Rochester who won $15,000 on the $3,000,000 Bonanza scratch-off game. Barber's winning ticket was purchased at the Wilson Farms at 4424-4436 Lake Ave in Rochester.
    The New York Lottery continues to be North America's largest and most profitable Lottery, contributing close to $2.9 billion in fiscal year 2011-2012 to help support education in New York State. The Lottery's aid represents nearly 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.
