Denton Man Wins Millions in Scratch-Off Game



    (Published Friday, May 23, 2014)

    A Denton man has won millions of dollars on a scratch-off lottery game.

    Jesse Patino claimed the first $7.5 million top prize in the $50 Texas Lottery scratch-off game "Millionaires Club."

    Patino bought the winning ticket at a Racetrac located at 601 Fort Worth Drive in Denton.

    He told NBC 5 that he was speechless by it all. NBC 5 crews stopped by the winner's apartment Thursday night, but he was not home.

    There are still two grand prize scratch off tickets available. The odds of winning $7.5 million is one in 1.2 million.

    The "Millionaires Club" was introduced in April 2014 and features more than $137 million in total prizes.
