If you recently bought a lottery ticket at the H-E-B in Belton, you may want to check on it. You could be $225,000 richer and not even know it.
Check Your Pockets
Our partners at News 10 report that someone out there bought a Texas Two Step ticket at the H-E-B located at 2509 North Main St. in Belton.
I hope they didn't lose it or leave it in their pants pocket during a wash, because it's now worth some serious cash!
The ticket reportedly matched all four numbers drawn - 16, 21, 26, 32 - and a bonus ball, 19.
If those are your lucky numbers, you'd better find that ticket!

Do You Play the Lottery?
Confession: I don't play the Lotto. It's one of those things I don't think about too often, plus I don't have the best luck anyway.
However, I have a friend who's only bought two scratch-off tickets in his life, and he won $500 both times. I was with him on both occasions. So...maybe I'm a good luck charm?
Nawwww. Knowing my luck, I'd somehow end up owing $200,000.
Best of luck to everyone who plays, though!
