CLIFTON PARK, NY — A self-employed cleaning lady will receive $50,000 a year for the next 20 years after hitting the jackpot on a scratch-off lottery ticket, according to the Daily Gazette.
Pamela Fitch of Mechanicville, NY, had asked for a different ticket, but decided to keep the Big Bucks ticket the clerk handed to her anyways, the story stated.
Fitch said she plans to save the money, an estimated $34,075 a year after taxes, and will continue to work as a house cleaner, the story noted.
Fitch told reporters: "My horoscope said I was going to win the lottery so I just went with it."
Fitch scratched the winning ticket on December 26, but was unable to verify it was a winner until the Lottery office in Schenectady, NY, opened after the holiday weekend, the story added.
