Brentwood man wins big on scratch-off, is now $3 million richer


A thumbs up with one hand while holding a fat check worth $3 million in the other.

That was Brentwood’s Jean Paraison last month after he collected his grand prize winnings after hitting the jackpot on a New York Lotto 50X scratch-off game.

The lucky winner bought the Easy Jay Convenience located at 249-251 2nd Ave. in Brentwood.

He decided to receive a single lump sum payment, which totals to $1,840,732 after required withholdings.

According to a statement released by the New York Lottery on March 19, there are two more 50X lotto tickets worth $3 million in circulation.
