Cha-ching! One Houston man will soon be clutching a fist full of loot after winning a whopping $7.5 million with a Texas Lottery scratch-off ticket.

The winning ticket was sold at All Seasons Convenience Store located in the 11100 block of N. Eldridge Pkwy. Store owners will receive a $10,000 retailer bonus.

The lucky man claimed the third of three prizes worth $7.5 million available in the Diamond Dollars game, which offers more than $142.7 million in prizes combined. Overall odds of winning any prize in Diamond Dollars are one in 2.52, including break even prizes.

We are not releasing his name because we don’t want to be responsible for the flood of the “can I get a loan” calls he is surely to get from long-lost friends and old flames. And since we are not, can WE get a loan? Just kidding, but congratulations!
