CHADWICKS, N.Y. – A Chadwicks woman has opted for a lump sum payment after winning $1 million on a scratch-off ticket.

Melanie Flynn won on a Golden 8s scratch-off ticket she purchased at the Mirabito on Oneida Street in Chadwicks.

“I started screaming when I realized we won the jackpot,” she said.

The one-time lump sum payment totaled $550,876 after withholdings.

She says some of the money will be used to pay bills, and some will be shared with family.

“The money will make everyday life easier,” she said.  “We’ll use some of it to pay off the mortgage and help our family.”

Flynn is the 18th person to claim a prize totaling $1 million or more so far this year, according to the New York State Lottery.
