$1 Million Lottery Goes to Fort Worth Man

A $2 investment in Weekly Grand scratch-off lottery gives a huge return to a Fort Worth (North Central Texas) man. George L. West ended up the game with the top prize, weekly $1,000 for 20 years. The winner ended up choosing the lump sum cash. As per Texas Lottery Commission officials, he walked away with an amount of $828,089.60. He asked for minimal publicity.

Moreover, it was among the top five prizes offered in the Weekly Grand game. West purchased the winning ticket from No. 7 Food Mart, 1201 Country Club Lane, east Fort Worth. Thus, the concerned store is now also eligible to get $10,000 as the ticket selling bonus.

Above all, it has been a long time any Tarrant County resident claimed a big prize in Texas Lottery. Johnny Denton (from Fort Worth) was the last considerable winner. He scooped $2.5 million in April. With 1 in 3.95 as the odds of winning, the scratch off game offers more than $49 million in overall prizes. A new Texas law is likely to be published in September. It will ask the $1 million (or more) winners to remain anonymous.

The Texas Lottery has generated $25 billion in revenue for the state, $19 billion for Texas public education, and $66 million for Texas veterans. The Lottery group has given out more than $50 billion as prize money since it began selling tickets in 1992.
