Spending a quick two bucks turned into a million dollars for a Mineola resident! Stopping in get her Powerball Lottery ticket at the Super Sak #4 on WSW Loop 323 in Tyler turned out to be a great thing for Gloria Tuck of Mineola.

Gloria won one million dollars from that Powerball Lottery drawing and was one ball away from winning the Powerball jackpot valued at $164 million during the drawing on December 12, 2015! Her five numbers matched the lottery numbers of 2 - 14 - 19 - 30 - 62 that came up but was short of the Powerball, which was 22 for that drawing. Of course most of us know now that that jackpot kept growing to be worth $1.5 billion dollars!

Congratulations Gloria, East Texas' latest lottery millionaire!

The current Powerball lottery jackpot is growing again! Tomorrow night's drawing (Wednesday, January 27, 2016) is estimated to be worth a whopping $75 million!
