SCHENECTADY — A Niskayuna woman won the $1 million jackpot on the Lady Luck 7 scratch-off ticket.
Patricia Stanton, who was introduced in a press conference on Tuesday, won her prize on a ticket she purchased on Mother’s Day at Stewart’s, 1218 Troy-Schenectady Road in Latham.
“I was with my mom and we stopped at Stewart’s after getting our nails done,” Stanton said. “I bought a couple of the Lady Luck 7 tickets and told my mom to pick one. Hers was a $10 winner and mine ended up being the jackpot winner.”
Stanton chose to receive her prize in 20 annual payments of $50,000, for an annual net check of $33,590 after required withholdings.
She said she will use the money to take care of her family and pay for her daughter’s college education.
