We have a winner! You know what they say...you can't win if you don't play, Well, someone from Odessa did play and apparently did win $4 Million from the Million Mega Million from the Texas Lottery. It was the January 18th drawing of the Mega Milion.

According to yourbasin.com.... 

THE WINNING TICKET WAS BOUGHT AT SPANISH SHIELD SPIRITS IN ODESSA

The ticket was bought at the Spanish Shield Spirits located at 4750 West University in Odessa. How cool is that? How many times do we see on TV or in the NEWS that the winning tickets was sold to the Lottery? Most of the time, it's in a city or community that isn't yours. Well, this time it happened here in the Permian Basin.

THE BIG WIN WAS WORTH 347 MILLION

Apparently, the numbers came close to winning the BIG JACKPOT which was worth 347 million.

THE TICKET WAS CLAIMED!

What's really cool about this is that the winning ticket was claimed and turned in. How many times do we hear that the winning ticket was sold but no one has turned it in? NOT the case here, they have claimed the ticket and now wait for the official verification from the Texas lottery!

CONGRATS TO SOMEONE FROM OUR HOMETOWN

I think it's awesome that someone from our hometown won the money. We always hear about winners from around the state but to have one from here in the Permian Basin basin is sweet!  The next Mega Millions is Sunday! Guess, I need to go buy my ticket! GOOD LUCK to us all!
