CORTLAND, Ohio (WYTV) – A Cortland woman is ready to get her family farming business on the fast track after she scratched a $1 million win on Fastest Road to $1 Million.
Sherry Denman chose the cash option. After mandatory state and federal taxes take 28%, she will receive $360,000.
Denman bought her ticket at Lakeside Sport Shop in Cortland. Prior to this, her biggest win was $5,000.
“When I scratched off the $1 million, I had to look at it four times before I even screamed, and I said to myself, this can’t be right,” said Denman.
The retailer scanned the ticket and confirmed the $1 million win. Sherry said she will put all of the prize back into the family business.
“We farm, so we’re going to update our farm equipment. Fir thing is a corn planter. We want to get a twelve row and get done faster,” Denman said.
Fastest Road to $1 Million is a $30 scratch off with a top prize of $40,000 a year for 25 years. As of January 13, there are 37 top prizes remaining.
