Texas Lottery Winner in Parker County Hasn’t Claimed Their Prize Yet

By  | 


The Star-Telegram reports that someone in Parker County, east of Fort Worth, is a $5.5 million Texas Lottery winner – they just don’t know it yet! No one has come forward with the ticket, which was sold at Peaster Grocery and Grill, 6321 Farm Road 920, so the winner is still out there with the numbers “5-10-16-22-26-46” printed on one lucky piece of paper. (The Peaster Grocery and Grill will also receive a bonus of $55,000 for selling the winning ticket.)

This marks the second time that someone has won such a large prize in Parker County. Back in July 2016, Roy Gibson took the cash value payout of “$4.6 million of the $6 million jackpot.”

As we recently learned when a $14.53 million Texas Lottery winner from Abilene claimed their prize months after the drawing, lottery tickets do, in fact, have an expiration date. Hopefully, the mysterious $5.5 million winner in the Parker County area comes forward soon so they can have the happiest of holidays! Who could top a winning lottery ticket as a Christmas gift for themselves?
