It's always the hole-in-the-wall convenience stores, right?
The luck in San Antonio continues: a local resident has won $1 million from a scratch-off ticket.

On Friday, the Texas Lottery confirmed that a San Antonio resident won the  payout via a Million Dollar Loteria ticket, marking the first of the five million-dollar prizes in the game.

The new millionaire, who has smartly chosen to remain anonymous, shared their excitement with Texas Lottery.

"It was unbelievable. I kept reading the ticket, I scanned it on the app, went back to the store and I was told it [the prize] needed to be claimed at the lottery headquarters," the winner said. "At that point, I knew the win was for real."

Sun Coast Foodmart, located at 6614 San Pedro Avenue, sold the winning ticket. The chances of purchasing another winning ticket in the Million Dollar Loteria game there are slim, but maybe you'll get lucky with another game.
