Someone who bought a lottery ticket in Mineral Wells has 11.5 million reasons to smile this morning.
One lottery ticket buyer, who bought their ticket at the Kwik Stop on S.E. 22nd Ave., won $11.5 million playing the Texas Lotto quick pick. The winner picked all six numbers – in Wednesday night’s drawing.
The winning numbers were 8, 21, 32, 35, 45 and 52. The Mineral Wells Index says Imran Bhutto is the store’s owner and operator.
Players’ odds of picking all six numbers are 1 in 25,827,165, according to the lottery commission. But, until the money is claimed at the Texas Lottery Commission in Austin, the winner won’t be known.
The store will receive about a half a million dollars from the Texas Lottery Commission for selling the ticket, Bhutto said. The winner has 180 days to claim the prize money. The winner also has a cash value option.
