CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Correction:
A previous version of this article stated that the odds of winning "$200,000,000 Cash Blowout" is 1 in 3.38, but that is not correct. The overall odds of winning any prize in the game are 1 in 3.38, including break-even prizes.

An Aransas Pass resident has won the top prize for the Texas Lottery game "$200,000,000 Cash Blowout".

Texas Lottery officials said the winning $5 million ticket was bought at Pittman's Qwik Mart on McArdle Road for $50.

"This was the first of four top prizes worth $5 million to be claimed in this game. $200,000,000 Cash Blowout! offers more than $225 million in total prizes," said Texas Lottery officials.

According to officials, the overall odds of winning any prize in the game are 1 in 3.38, including break-even prizes.

Pittman's Qwik Mart has had several big winners at the store, including a $16 million Lotto Texas winner back in 1993. Last year the store paid out $3 .4 million to several winners.

The claimant has chosen to remain anonymous, officials say.
