Memphis Celebrates New Half-Millionaire with Tennessee Cash Lottery Win at Holmes Express Grill & MarketSource: Google Street View

Memphis is buzzing with excitement as a new half-millionaire is among its residents. A Tennessee Cash lottery ticket sold at Holmes Express Grill & Market won a whopping $540,000 from Wednesday's drawing. The lucky ticket, sold at the small market located at 5982 East Holmes Road, matched all five numbers plus the Cash Ball, WREG reported.

This notable win has shaken up the local convenience store scene with Holmes Express Grill & Market joining the ranks of recent lucky vendors as the past two months saw two more big payout tickets sold at an Exxon on Canada Road in Shelby County, one of those tickets was a Tennessee Cash prize of $470,000 while another made a Powerball player $100,000 richer.

For those feeling lucky, the Tennessee-only drawing-style game continues, and the anticipation is building with the next draw on Friday—tickets retail for a mere buck with the Quick Cash option available for an additional dollar, as Action News 5 detailed in their coverage of the story.

The recent Memphis winner, who has not yet come forward, could be looking to join the ranks of new vehicle owners as other winners might have, considering a co-worker could potentially pull up in something shiny and new soon if the recent win trend continues and judging by the past wins reported in Shelby county, there's a good chance they will, FOX13 Memphis shared.
