A Granbury resident is the most recent winner of the top prize in the Million Dollar Loteria scratch ticket game, the Texas Lottery announced on Monday.
The winner, who has chosen to remain anonymous, purchased the ticket at an Allsup’s convenience store in Cisco, about an hour-and-a-half drive west of Granbury.
They were the second person to win $1,000,000 in the Million Dollar Loteria game #2511. The scratch-off game tickets are sold in packs of 25 for $20. Each pack contains a guaranteed total prize amount of at least $100.

A previous winner claimed the game’s first $1,000,000 prize in June. That ticket was sold at an H-E-B grocery store in Houston.
Game #2511 of the Million Dollar Loteria offers 10 top prizes of $1,000,000 and 42 prizes of $20,000.
