AUSTIN – An East Texas resident is $20 million dollars richer after winning the Lotto Texas Jackpot on November 2, 2016.
Byron Lee Sowell, of San Augustine, selected the cash value option at the time of purchase and will receive $14,653,943.78.
For selling the jackpot-winning ticket, San Augustine Chevron, located at 983 State Hwy. 103 West in San Augustine, is eligible to receive a $201,376.08 retailer bonus.
Sowell’s Quick Pick ticket matched all six of the numbers drawn (3-4-29-31-33-50). The claimant requested minimal publicity.
