Lufkin person scores 2.5 million from a lottery ticket

LUFKIN -The lucky winner scratched off the wining numbers at a Texaco in Lufkin. It was a Texas lottery game ticket called "100X the cash". 

The winner claimed a third of the four prizes that are worth 2.5 Million. 100X the cash offers more than 122 million dollars in prizes. With all that money, Stacy Cohgen said she has a few ideas of what she would spend it [the money] on. 

"I would pay off a lot of bills and build a new house so we can bring more little ones into it," Cohgen said. 

The mother of two said she would pay off one bill that has been following her for the longest; student loans. 

"I've got one at [Texas] ATM so that's another debt to curve," Cohgen said. 

Those who are not frugal spenders, one can buy a few of the world's luxuries.

How about the most expensive fish? A golden tiger fish for 75 thousands dollars.
One can spend half of the 2 million on a Transformers collection or buy a bugatti with 1.45 Million.

However,  East Texans like Ashley Comer would be more generous.
