A Dallas resident went into convenience store, bought a $20 scratch off lottery ticket and became the state’s newest millionaire.
The winner, who chose to remain anonymous, bought a Million Dollar Loteria ticket at Luna Mart, 2647 W. Northwest Highway in Dallas, Texas Lottery officials announced Thursday.
The $1 million prize he or she won was the last million dollar payout that had yet to be claimed on this ticket.
The odds of winning any prize on this ticket: 1 in 3.31.
More than half a dozen North Texans have cashed in lottery tickets for prizes worth $1 million or more this year, records show.
The names of those winners aren’t public because of a 2017 state law that lets Texans who claim lottery prizes worth $1 million or more remain anonymous.
The first Texas Lottery tickets were sold in 1992.
