Fort Worth Texas Gas Station Sells 28 Million Dollar Lotto Ticket
The Crossroad Shell station is very appropriately named, because the local gas station became the primary crossroad in the life of one lucky lottery winner thanks to a Quick Pick ticket! The winning Lotto Texas numbers were 13-36-38-45-46-49 and nobody has claimed the prize yet, so be sure to check your own lottery tickets carefully.
"I hope it’s us, we're the only Crossroad Shell around" said Shell gas station manager Gias Uddin on Sunday. Not only does the lucky store get the prestige and news media coverage for selling a winning ticket, they also get a percentage based cash award as well so it could mean big money for the small store.
According to the Texas Lottery Commission website, a winning ticket must be claimed no later than 180 days after the draw date, which is a common timeframe among lottery establishments. A ticket is not a valid winning ticket until presented for payment which means a ticket with the correct numbers is worth the same amount as a ticket with the wrong numbers… until you remember to turn it in and collect your prize money!
