BOLTON LANDING - A Warren County contractor won't need to spend the winter working outside.

That's because he just became a millionaire.

Jason Lamb was presented with a $3,000,000 check Friday.

Lamb won the top prize on a New York Lottery scratch off ticket he bought at the Bolton Landing Stewarts shop.

He was about to head to work when he realized he was a winner.

"Well, I didn't believe it. I jumped around in my truck and then went straight home. I told my mom and she's like, Jay, stop messing around with me and go back to work. So, you know how moms are."

And Lamb plans to take care of his mother with his winnings.

He says he also may take a trip to Hawaii to visit his brother who is stationed in the military there.
