CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Somebody is about to start their New Year off with a literal bonus.
Prescott Meat Market — located at 4414 Prescott St. — sold a winning scratch-off lottery ticket, with a max prize of $250,000.
The winner is a regular at Prescott and has been buying the same lottery tickets for "a long time."
"It surprised us for the New Year, I don't remember the last we sold this big," manager Peter Patel said. "It's good for him (the winner) and his family, they are blessed in this New Year."
Visitors and locals alike are welcome to try their luck at Prescott Meat Market, open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.
"It's great," Corpus Christi native Larry Ransom said. "I wish it had been me."
