Man wins $500K on lottery ticket at Shell station

A clerk at the Aspen Shell station confirmed Friday night that a man won a $500,000 scratch-off ticket purchased from the store.

Gabby Garcia said the man is a frequent lottery player at The Aspen Store, which is part of the Shell station. He often cashes in on $1 or $2 winning scratch-off tickets, the clerk said.

But Friday, he came running into the station shouting, “I won,” she said.

She looked at the $10 ticket and saw that it was a winner.

“All the time, he’s outside,” she said. “He comes in all the time with winning tickets.”

She said the man bought the winning ticket at sometime around 2 p.m.
