The Bronx hit it big for the fourth time in May with the New York Lottery’s Take-5 game, with the latest jackpot ticket coming out of a south Bronx gas station.

The more recent of those two came at a value of $52,955.50 out of Elite Wine & Spirit on E. 149th Street across from Lincoln Hospital in the south Bronx on Monday, May 11.
Those winning numbers from last night were 13-20-23-32-38.
