Texas LotteryTexas Lottery: Southlake gas station sells winning $19.5M Texas Lotto ticket

What would you do with $19.5 million dollars?

A Southlake, Texas, gas station sold the $19.5 million winning ticket for Saturday's Lotto Texas jackpot, according to the Texas Lottery.

The winner, who chose the random Quick Pick option, has not been identified yet.

"Today a lot of people came by" to try their luck after learning the Shell station near North Kimball Avenue and Northwest Parkway had sold the drawing's only jackpot-winning ticket, employee Temesgen Desta said.

Desta said no one at the store knows which employee sold the ticket with the winning numbers, 1, 7, 15, 35, 43, and 53.

The last Lotto Texas jackpot-winning ticket sold in North Texas was a $16 million ticket bought in Fort Worth for the Feb. 20 drawing.

I buy gas there sometimes, but never buy my tics there.

Everybody at work thought I was the winner, LOL.

I only wish.

CAN'T WIN IF YOU'RE NOT IN

              Maybe I should try buying my lottery tickets at gas stations. ;-).

              Surprised to find  two instant scratch off  tickets that were disgarded that had a $5.00 prize and a $10.00 prize.

              Guess the players were in such a hurry to get to some place that they did not realize that they had winnings that they threw away. Still don't understand it but taking a second look might prove to be an interesting strategy.

              Anyone else have similar experiences with instant scratch off tickets? Wink

                There's another thread on the forums asking what people love about Lottery Post.  You know what I love?  We have such a deep and rich membership that I post a news story about a gas station, and a member here (a great long-termer too!) knows about that station and in fact buys gas there.  That just makes me smile.  Cheers

                    Dang, that sucks.  I wish it was somebody from here I would love to see that.  But to my surprise a gas station, a Shell gas station.  I mean who knew a 19 Million ticket would have been sold there.

                      oh so close. You had a glimpse from your co-workers as to what it would be like to win. Do all Shells sell lottery tickets?  I never see lottery signs at them in Northern VA but also never go inside to ask either.

                        I rarely ever see lotto signs posted in gas stations windows, but I would assume most Shells sell lottery tickets, at least they do here in Ohio.

                            Oh so close! So will you start buying tickets there? Shell stations usually are lucky, as are Texaco stations.

                             

                            Texas Lotto wins in 3 regions - DFW, El Paso, and the Valley. I think Houston may have one it, once. This one took sooooo long to grow. The new lotto is horrible.
