Texas Lottery has lots of scratch-offs, some are quick and others take longer.   If you are in a hurry go with the quick ones.  If you want to work a little for the money you spent scratch-offs like Bingo and Crossword are the way to go.  It takes some time to scratch off the numbers or letters to create a word or make a bingo.

When you get that winning ticket you celebrate.  Most of the time you don't win anything, but there is that moment you win your money back or you get to put $100 in your pocket.

But what if you won the jackpot?

That's exactly what happened to a Pampa resident.  They were playing the $1,000,000 Crossword and they scratched off all the words they needed to put 1 million dollars in their pocket.  They were Crosswording their way to the bank.

Congratulations to whoever won the big bucks in Pampa.  You may choose to remain anonymous, but people will eventually find out.  Enjoy your money!

Where the Cast of 'Yellowstone' Would Be From If They Lived in TEXAS

Suppose the characters of 'Yellowstone' were all Texas natives..What town do you think they'd be from?

Well, Therese from Crown B Ranch took a stab at this fun "what if" game and the results are hilarious.

Agree or disagree, you have to admit that this is one heck of a fun debate to have with fellow Yellowstone fans.
