According to reports, a man from Porter had a big win from a scratch-off lottery game. Melvin Gehrels won $2.5 million from the $500 million Blockbuster scratch-off game.
Additional reports indicate that Gehrels purchased the winning ticket from The Olee’s Quickie Picky store. He claimed his prize last week at the Texas Lottery headquarters in Austin. Because the winning ticket was purchased at the Quickie Picky, the store is now eligible for a $10,000 bonus for selling that winning ticket.
