Pampa Resident Hits the Jackpot: Texas Lottery Scratch-off Turns into $1 Million Win
When you stop into a convenience store and buy a drink, get some gas, and decide to buy a few scratch-offs, you hope that it will pay off.
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.
The winning ticket was purchased at Kelly's Chevron. The winner chose to remain anonymous.
According to the Texas Lottery, this was the seventh of eight top prizes worth $1 million to be claimed in this game. $1,000,000 Crossword offers more than $289.2 million in total prizes. Overall odds of winning any prize in the game are one in 3.41, including break-even prizes.
Congratulations to whoever won the big bucks in Pampa. You may choose to remain anonymous, but people will eventually find out. Enjoy your money!
