DALLAS (KDAF) — It sure is fun winning in sports, but have you ever tried your hand at winning millions of dollars? We don’t have first-hand experience, but just the thought of watching that bank account increase by a couple of million is otherworldly.
How much Texas barbecue, Tex-Mex, or chili could a person buy with, say, $5 million? Well, we don’t know who it was but an East Texas resident has recently claimed a $5M top prize ticket from the scratch ticket game, $200,000,000 Cash Blowout, the Texas Lottery reports.
“A Gilmer resident claimed a top prize winning ticket worth $5 million in the Texas Lottery®
