A Saratoga County man has won some "Jumbo Bucks."
Bryan MacPherson, 53, of Porter Corners won the $1 million jackpot on a $5 "Jumbo Bucks" scratch-off ticket he bought at a Stewart’s in Saratoga Springs.
MacPherson had been working in the area for a few weeks and always stopped in for coffee.
A big fan of scratch-off tickets - his strategy was to only buy tickets with low numbers on them.
The tickets he bought were numbered 1 and 2. When he scratched off that second ticket at work, he saw it was a winner.
MacPherson chose the one-time lump sum payment - totaling $537,440 after taxes. He plans to invest some, buy a 4-wheeler and visit St. John and a few other islands – then return to work as a builder.
