One Brockport man is probably thinking about a million things tonight. That’s because he won a million dollar jackpot off a scratch off ticket.

Ronald Nau bought the 20X the Cash $5 ticket last month. He said he purchased it at Wegmans on Mount Read Boulevard, only because he was in a rush. He says he typically would have bought five, $1 tickets, but says there were too many people in line.

Ronald Nau said, “First, I was in denial because I didn’t believe it. Then total elation. It is tremendous.”

He plans to take a lump sum payment of more than $555,000. He said he plans to invest some and pay off some bills.
