The Capital Region has had its share of big-time fistfuls of cash within the last year or so from the New York State Lottery.
Last January, a scratch-off called "Make My Year" was sold at the Cumberland Farms in Glens Falls. It was a 2.5 million dollar hit for one lucky Capital Region native.
Back in February of 2020, there was a million-dollar scratch-off winner sold at a Stewart's in Gloversville and that was from a game called "Make My Month." And Of course, the granddaddy of them all; back in September 2020, a 95 million dollar Powerball winning jackpot ticket was sold in Saratoga County.
