$5M Grand Prize Scratch-Off Sold at the Hannaford in Latham!
The New York Lottery scratch-off game called Set for Life is a $10 ticket with a grand prize payout of $5,000 a week (for life) or a one lump cashout of $5M! You can't go wrong with whichever you choose, but the hard part - as many of you know - is scratching yourself a winner.
A $5M Grand Prize winner was scratched from a ticket sold at Hannaford in Latham!
According to the Daily Voice, AOG For Change, an LLC based out of Delmar, claimed a top prize in the lottery's Set for Life scratch-off game, the NY Lottery announced last week.
The LLC had the option of $5K a week for life or a lump sum payment, and according to the Daily Voice, the LLC took the money upfront, landing them over $2.8M after taxes.
Winning happens quite a bit here in the Capital Region
Last month, a man in Albany County played "Strike it Rich" and he did just that, winning the million-dollar top prize, after paying a life-changing visit to a Cumberland Farms in Latham.
Amazing, considering that Meg Millions is played throughout 45 states as well as the District of Columbia and the US Virgin Islands, the odds against one single ticket winner are purely astronomical.
And in 2011, 7 co-workers in Albany shared a Megamillions jackpot that had a grand prize of 319 million dollars. This would without a doubt be the second-largest jackpot win in the history of the Capital Region.
