LAKE JACKSON, Texas Persistence paid off for a Lake Jackson man who regularly plays the Monthly Bonus Texas Lottery scratch-off game.

Scott E. Crosson recently claimed the top prize -- $10,000 a month for the next 20 years.

I was sitting on the couch watching UT play BYU, and I pulled out my ticket and started scratching. Crosson explained. I knew immediately, as soon as I saw that dollar. I got up, grabbed my keys and went to my parents house to show them.

The store that sold the ticket T&T Grocery at 227 Old Angleton Road is now eligible for a $10,000 retailer bonus, something Crosson said they deserve.

The people at the store work hard. That s where I purchase my Lotto Texas numbers every week. If I win the big one, I want them to get something, too, he said.

Congrats, Scott!
