The next Texas Lottery Mega Millions drawing takes place tonight, Friday, July 29, with a jackpot brewing at $1.28 billion, waiting to be won by one fortunate player.

There are many math-based tactics to play the lottery, including sticking with a set of lucky numbers, trying the odds and evens strategy, using the Quick Pick option, or even identifying the hot, cold, and overdue numbers.

Whatever your lotto strategy, you should also consider where you purchase your tickets because three local gas stations are responsible for selling three winning lottery tickets across the Sun City.

Since 2006, three El Paso gas stations have issued two Texas Lottery Mega Millions winning tickets, one Texas Lotto ticket, and one Texas Lotto Weekly Half Grand scratch-off ticket.

The first convenience store is the 7-11 on Alameda, which seems to be the luckiest so far, selling a Mega Millions ticket that won Martha Cuellar $94 million in 2006, and a Texas Lotto Weekly scratch-off ticket that won Demetrio Ponce $500 per week for 20 years in 2021.

Most recently, another winner of a Mega Millions Lotto ticket won $1 million after purchasing their ticket in northeast El Paso at a Valero gas station.

As the Texas Lottery Mega Millions jackpot grows to a whopping $530 million, local lottery fans might want to consider where to purchase their tickets by adding these three lucky locations to their game strategy.
