Belton Store to Receive Bonus Check from Texas Lottery
A store in Belton is getting a nice bonus on Tuesday.
The Texas Lottery announced that it will present a ceremonial retailer bonus check, on Tuesday, to Longhorn Drive-in Grocery.
The store is at 2218 Holland Drive in Belton, and it'll receive a check for $160,000.
This is the store that sold the $16 million jackpot-winning ticket for the Lotto Texas drawing held back on August 11th.
I've always wondered how this works. If you buy a ticket, then win the lottery, do you tip the person who sold you the ticket? Turns out that the store gets a bonus check for doing its job. Does the owner then tip the employees that sold the ticket?
I get the feeling that the employees might get the shaft on this. Personally, if I were to win a take-home of around $10 million, I'd definitely toss the clerk the max cash gift you can give, which is 14 or 15 thousand.
