Winning Lotto Ticket Sold in Lakeport

A Lakeport convenience store just outside of Longview is a confirmed lucky lotto dealer.

Joining the East Texas store in selling the winning tickets are Terrell, Austin, Pearland, and Sherman.

The Stop and Shop at Estes Parkway will cash in on the good fortune as well, not 70-million, but 250-thousand for selling the winning number combination.

Four of the five tickets were bought yesterday.

Lottery officials report more than $10.3 million dollars in ticket sales occurred before 5 pm.

Texans weren't the only ones taking their chances on lotto dreams, clerks say lotto tickets were bought by people from neighboring states and even Mexico.

The Stop and Shop is still in the dark about who purchased the winning lotto numbers.
