BROCKPORT, N.Y. (WHEC) -- A Brockport man has become Monroe County's newest millionaire. 

Robert Jenks won $1 million on a Ruby Red X25 scratch-off ticket. 


On Thursday, Yolanda Vega from the New York Lottery presented him with the ceremonial prize check. She gave it to him at Barber's Grill & Tap Room on Main Street in Brockport, the place he bought the winning ticket.

In fact, he's been working there since 1994 and buys a lottery ticket every day. 

What is he going to do with the money?

"I'm going to take care of my family first," Jenks said. "I'm going to give my ex-wife some money, my sons are going to have some money to spend and I'm going to put some money aside for my granddaughter."

The rest, he says, is going in the bank, after he buys himself a new cell phone.
