On Tuesday, a Columbia County woman became the New York State Lottery's newest Lottery millionaire. Pamela Miles of Ancramdale won her $1 million jackpot prize on a Holiday Lucky X50 scratch-off ticket.

Miles purchased her winning ticket at J’s Millerton Market/Gulf Express on Route 44 in Millerton, Dutchess County. Miles opted to receive her prize as a one-time lump sum payment totaling $671,800 after required withholdings.

“I plan to use the money to pay off my bills, go on a vacation and put some into savings,” Miles told the New York Lottery.

A Westchester County woman also recently won $1 million from the New York Lottery. Just before the New Year, Cheryl Murray of Mamaroneck won her $1 million jackpot prize on a Triple Stars scratch-off ticket.

The winning ticket was purchased at the SK Variety on Mamaroneck Avenue in Mamaroneck. Murray decided to receive her prize in 20 annual installments of $50,000 before withholdings. She will receive a net check totaling $33,590 annually and $671,800 after her 20 installments.

“Winning the Lottery is a little scary to be honest,” Murray said to the New York Lottery. "I plan to use the money to pay off bills."
