Welcome to Lotto Power Hour! For the next 60 minutes, all three Curbed Network New York City sites—that's us, Curbed NY, and Eater NY—will be focusing obsessively on the New York City lottery. Because after all, if there's one thing that brings people to bodegas, it's Lotto tickets.
As part of Lotto Power Hour, we'll be scratching off a new ticket every ten minutes and announcing the results on the site. At the hour's end, we'll give our entire winnings to one lucky reader. How to win: Suggest an idea for a scratch-off game in the comments. Whoever has the best idea gets the haul, be it $1 or $100.
