7-11 in Lubbock Receives Jackpot Earnings

The 7-11 on the corner of 98th Street and Indiana Avenue dubbed "the luckiest store in town" finally received their share of the $36-million prize. 

Friday, The Texas Lottery Commission visited the store at 98th and Indiana, to present management with a check for $362,000. That is exactly 1% of the jackpot won by a pool of Lubbock women two months ago.

District Manager, Ryan Suttles, says five employees will also receive an undisclosed amount. The rest will go into a general fund.  "I had my zero in the wrong place when I was calculating (how much this store would get.)  I was happy with $36,000. When I did the math, it was even better," Suttles said.

You may also remember, a seventh woman, Betty Domingo, is suing the six winners for not splitting the money with her. She claims, she has always been a part of the pool.  But that day, she did not pitch in her own money to buy a ticket.

The suit will be decided in a Lubbock District Court.  A date has not been set.
