  • When Dennis Damian Anugwom’s mother Grace told him to rest after working early into Sunday morning on Mother’s Day, he did what a good son does—he obeyed her. Anugwom, of Houston, got some rest and then headed to his mother’s house to join his brothers.

    On the way, he stopped at the Shop N Go Food Store located at 6601 S. Gessner Drive in Houston and bought three $1,000,000 Cash Blast scratch-offs. “When I got the $1,000,000 Cash Blast scratch-offs. “When I got the $1,000,000 Cash Blast third ticket,” Anugwom said, “I put it in my pocket and left the store.”

    Anugwom scratched the $20 ticket in his car, and could barely believe it when he uncovered a $1 million prize. “I couldn’t breathe and I couldn’t smile even though I wanted to, so I called my mother. When she answered, I couldn’t speak to her, and then I started crying, which scared her.”

    Grace Anugwom gave the phone to Dennis’s oldest brother, Innocent, who was able to extract the story, and then burst into laughter as Dennis continued crying.

    “Your son is a millionaire,” Innocent told his mother.

    Anugwom will take his mother to visit his 9-year-old son in Jamaica as soon as possible. Later this summer,

    they plan to go to Nigeria to see Anugwom’s father, whom he

    hasn’t seen in 14 years.

  • Calvin McFadden of Sherman has been playing Cash Five® for the last four years with great success, which he attributes to a system he’s worked out. The March 31 top prize of $32,769 is the second he’s won using his plan.

    “Ever since I retired four years ago, I’ve been researching the numbers that are drawn in Cash Five,” he said. “I’ve studied the frequency of the numbers that come up, and with that, I’ve been able to choose numbers that have

    been proven winners for me.”

    McFadden says he was attracted to Cash Five because it has the best odds of all the on-line games. For him, the combination of the odds and researching the numbers has really paid off.

    “With the odds of one in 435,897 for winning the top prize and even better odds of 1 in 88 for winning $3, it’s rare that I don’t win something, even if it’s only two dollars,” he said.

    The last time McFadden won the top prize was in September 2005. He said he’s matched four-out-of-fi ve numbers on 23 tickets since he started using his system. McFadden purchased the tickets at Driggs Discount Liquor #3, located at 3000 South Woodlawn in Denison.

    promotion from March 25 through April 14, during which players who spent $10 or more on one

    San Antonio.

    One of Oviedo’s free Quick Picks matched fi ve- out-of-six numbers in the March 30 Mega Millions

    drawing!

    “I got a big birthday present from the lottery with those tickets,” said Oviedo said, who turned 62 the day he received the two free Quick Picks. “Even though the prize was on the free ticket, I still say you won’t win unless you buy a ticket.”

    “This prize will make me debt-free,” Oviedo said. “I’m also going to pay off my mortgage and buy my wife the new house we’ve been talking about for some time.”

    Oviedo also said he also plans to help care for an ailing family member, and to tithe to his church.
