One lucky Houstonian is now a millionaire after scratching their way into wealth earlier this week.
The winner – whose identity was not released – bought the Texas Lottery scratch-off game “200X” inside the Timewise Food Store in the 10900 block of Fry Road, according to the Texas Lottery Commission.
The $1 million cash-out is one of four grand prizes offered by the “200X” scratch off. Three $1 million prizes still remain.
