Big Things Don't Have to Happen in Big Places

This past Friday night, a winning $3 million Mega Millions ticket was sold at a convenience store in Houston. No surprise there, big-time winning tickets are sold quite often in huge metros like Dallas, Austin, San Antonio, and Houston.

Last night, the Powerball game produced a $1 million winner thanks to a store in a tiny Texas town that probably doesn't ring a bell.

Ever heard of Moore, Texas?

It's located just off Interstate 35, about 40 miles southwest of San Antonio. The population of Moore is 93, down from over 600 residents in 2000.

The town sits at the crossroads of I-35 and State Highway 57, and by now, you should know that when two big highways intersect each other, somebody is going to build a travel center there.

That travel center is called Road Ranger, and someone recently walked into that store and bought a quick pick for Saturday's Powerball game. The ticket matched five numbers, but not the bonus Powerball number.

That's worth a $1 million payout. It could have been a $2 million payout, but the winner did not pay the extra dollar for the Power Play multiplier.

Powerball Jackpot Continues to Grow

The winning ticket sold in Moore was the only ticket nationwide that matched all five non-Powerball numbers, and no one matched all six numbers, so that means the jackpot for the next Powerball drawing will be worth an estimated $131 million.

That drawing will take place on Monday night.

The next Mega Millions drawing will be held on Tuesday, May 28. That jackpot is now up to $489 million.
