SCHENECTADY, N.Y. - Two Capital Region residents are being presented with their prizes won from scratch-off tickets from the New York Lottery on Thursday.

The New York Lottery is says James Marx, a factory foreman from Schenectady, was presented with an early birthday - a check for $5 million, won from a "Set For Life" scratch-off ticket at a Scotia Stewart's Shop.

Robert Daniels, a retired Honeywell machine operator from Troy, was also presented with a big check on Thursday, a $1 million prize check won from a "20X the Cash" scratch-off ticket.

The two recent Capital Region winners are the first statewide to have the choice to take their prize as an annuity or a lump sum thanks to a new jackpot payment option.
