Congratulations to a local El Paso man who won a pretty good chunk of change with a scratch off lottery ticket.

The single Weekly Half Grand ticket was purchased at the Corner Store located at 5600 Doniphan Drive in west El Paso by Benjamin Ray Bustamante. Bustamante has stepped forward to claim the top prize winning ticket which holds a value of receiving $500 a week for 20 years. The winner opted for the cash value which totals to a one-time payment of about $397,532.58.

According to the Texas Lottery, the odds of winning any cash prize including break-even prizes for the Weekly Half Grand are one in 4.62.

We congratulate Mr. Bustamante and hope that these winnings are nothing but a blessing for him and his family.
