It never fails I read a story like this and I think to myself "why is it that I never win the lottery?" It's a valid question with a valid answer. I seem to never play the lottery. I kick myself every time I see a big winner.

Heck, I know a few lottery winners. I have one friend who won $900,000 in Pick Three. I have a friend who his whole family won nearly $74 million dollars in Mega Millions. So I know these winners are out there.

This money has changed their lives. Now another family gets to see how the money can help or hurt them. A lottery winning was just claimed in Borger, TX, for a million dollars. This one was on a scratch-off.

The winning game was the Millon Dollar Crossword. There were four million dollar top prizes. This is the final one to be claimed. The winner came from Borger.

Now the thing is that if you win the lottery you can choose to be anonymous. Which is the way that this winner chose according to the Texas Lottery. I get it. When something like this comes out you have friends and family you haven't talked with in forever wanting to reconnect.

So being anonymous is the way to go. The winning ticket was sold at the Allsups #102041, located at 416 W. Wilson St. So if you want to figure out who it is you may be able to. Start calling all of your friends and family in Borger.

If you have people that won't answer your call or refuse to call you back, maybe you have your answer. Congratulations to the Borger winner who has a million reasons to celebrate right now. Please be smart with your money.
