Utica, NY (WIBX) – A Utica man has beat the odds and hit the jackpot by purchasing a scratch-off ticket from the New York State Lottery.

Hung Tran is the first Oneida County resident to win one million dollars through the new 20X The Money instant scrath-off ticket.

Christy Calicchia of the New York State Lottery says although Tran’s odds were high, he emerged the winner and should feel very lucky.

He was presented a check for one million dollars today at the Vernon-Downs Casino and Hotel.

Tran says he plans to use his winnings to send money to his family and enjoy a nice long retirement.
