Winning a million dollars in a scratch-off game is a life-altering event that comes with its own set of thrills and responsibilities. The excitement of scratching off that winning ticket to reveal a million-dollar prize is unmatched.

And for a couple of folks here in East Texas, they have been experiencing that excitement first hand as the Texas Lottery revealed another big winner!.

The owners of the business that sold the winning ticket located at 2300 Gilmer Road, in Longview will also receive a nice "bonus" for selling the winning ticket as well.

Financial experts often advise winners to take time to plan and consult professionals who can help manage the newfound wealth. This includes speaking to a financial advisor, accountant, and lawyer to navigate the tax implications and create a long-term financial strategy.

Which is why we don't blame the claimant for choosing to remain anonymous.

Congratulations to the new winner and you may want to keep your eyes open for these tickets that have big prizes remaining below!
