Syracuse (WSYR-TV) -- A 24-year-old recent LeMoyne college graduate is the latest to hit it big playing the scratch off game “Cashword.”
Ian Hennessy bought the winning ticket at a store in Gloversville, just outside of Utica.
Hennessey says the million bucks won’t change his life, but it will certainly make it a little easier.
“I’m going to pay off my student loans, possibly put some towards our house which would be nice, maybe buy a hunting camp; me and my dad enjoy the outdoors so we'll look forward to doing that,” Hennessey said.
