An Oswego County woman turned a $5 investment in a New York Lottery instant game ticket into a big win.
Lottery officials say Barbara Krupke of Pulaski bought a $5 "25X The Cash" ticket at Kenney Drugs in Pulaski and discovered she was a winner - of $1 million dollars. Krupke says she wasn't sure she actually saw what she saw, and took the ticket back in the store and asked the clerk if it really was a big winner.
Krupke received a souvenir check in a presentation by lottery officials at Kinney Drugs. She chose the lump sum payout option, and will receive $502,968 after taxes.
