    Gregory Harness won $1 million from a $10 ticket he purchased in July
    from Samco Food Store, located 3300 White Lane, the state lottery said
    late last week. John Gonzalez won $2 million from a $20 Instant Prize
    Crossword Scratchers ticket he purchased from Johnny’s Food Mart,
    located at 2612 Buck Owens Boulevard, on an unknown date.



    “Once a winner comes forward — which doesn’t always happen right away
    — the lottery conducts a thorough vetting process,” said Jorge De La
    Cruz, assistant deputy director of public affairs and communications at
    the state lottery. “The timeline for that can vary, depending on the
    circumstances.”



    Sam Jouda, owner of Samco Food Stores, said Harness’ win was the
    largest winning ticket one of his locations had ever sold before. He
    described Harness as a military veteran and one of his regular
    customers.



    “I drive a 1995 vehicle, so I’m probably gonna buy a new (one),”
    Harness was quoted as saying in a state lottery news release. “It makes
    life so much easier.”



    “(Harness) was super stoked,” Jouda said. “He deserved it; he needed that money.”



    Jouda said that in addition to Harness’ winnings, Samco also received
    a $5,000 bonus for selling the ticket. He said the bonus went toward
    the company as well as the employee who sold Harness the ticket.



    Jouda also said that Harness personally gave the employee who sold him the ticket a bonus of their own.



    Harness’ win has also had a positive impact on Samco’s lottery ticket
    sales as well, according to Jouda. He said that since July, they have
    sold many winners that have received payouts of $1,000 and $2,000.



    “We have increased our supply of our tickets. We are barely keeping
    them in stock right now,” Jouda said. “The lottery winnings have boosted
    our sales like crazy.”



    Johnny’s Food Mart received a bonus of $10,000 for selling the $2
    million winning ticket, according to the state lottery. However,
    management from Johnny’s Food Mart was unable to return a request for
    comment.
