COVE, Tx - Although there was no big prize winner Saturday night, someone did win $2M from a ticket they bought at the Cove Country Store in Chambers County.

A record $1.3B jackpot is at stake in the Powerball lottery on Wednesday.

"Maybe this is the winning ticket," said Jana Blaha after purchasing her Powerball ticket. "All it takes is one ticket to win."

Blaha plays the lotto all the time, but what's special is the Cove Country Store in Chambers County where she plays.

"One other time people won big but people win scratch offs here all the time," said Donya Baygents, the clerk at the store.
