Utica Woman Wins One Million Dollars on Scratch off Lottery Ticket
Imagine buying a scratch off lottery ticket and winning one million dollars. What would you do? How would you react? What would you buy first? Hard to picture isn't it. Not for a Utica woman who hit the jackpot.
The stay at home mom bought the ticket at the Genesee Street Price Chopper, using the money she had from returning her recyclables. She'll be presented with her check from The New York Lottery this morning at the store she purchased her ticket at.
This isn't the first time someone has hit the jackpot in our area. A Richfield Springs couple scratched off a million in January 2011.
