• $500 winner on May 27

  • $100,000 winner on May 30

  • $200,000 winner on February 5

  • $30,000 winner on May 17

  • $30,000 winner on April 29

That's a pretty nice haul of payouts over a short period of time. If I were to tell you that those five winners all purchased their winning scratch-off tickets in Houston or Austin, it wouldn't be a big deal.

Something is Going on in Jasper, Texas

Those five jackpot payouts happened at five different convenience stores in Jasper. It's a decent-sized town of over 7,000 residents, but scoring five big-time winners like that definitely bucks the odds.
