El Paso Has a New Powerball Millionaire
No one won the estimated $950 million Powerball jackpot Saturday night, but that doesn't mean there weren't some big money winners, including one in El Paso.
One lucky El Pasoan -- or New Mexican, or Juarense -- became an instant millionaire Saturday night.
The ticket, which matched all five numbers but not the Powerball number, was sold at the 7/11 located on Gateway East and Lomaland. The other million dollar tickets were sold in Austin, and Cove, a small town just east of Houston.
According to the Texas Lottery website, two of the three million dollar ticket holders bought the Powerplay option, which means those tickets are worth $2 million. There is no word at this time if the ticket bought in El Paso is one of those.
