A San Antonio resident became a millionaire overnight after getting lucky with a scratch-off ticket.

The winner — who has smartly chosen to stay anonymous — got lucky with a Texas Lottery game called Instant Millionaire. The scratch-off ticket was the 15th out of 40 winning tickets that have a prize of $1 million, according to KENS 5.

In total, the Instant Millionaire game offers $519 million in prizes, including 10 winning tickets of $2.5 million each.

Reports indicate that the ticket was purchased at Zara Food Mart at 3620 South Zarzamora.
