Elida Cerda is playing it cool.
She and her husband Ramon Perez own the Express Business Services convenience store inside the McAllen bus station.
The couple sold a Texas Lottery ticket worth $6 million dollars.
"We're really excited, Cerda said on Thursday. I just don't want to show you how excited I am. I was jumping for joy this morning."
The winning lottery numbers 4-21-24-40-43-48 were picked on Wednesday night.
Nobody has come forward to claim the prize but Texas Lottery Commission officials confirmed the winning ticket was sold at their store.
"Since we have a lot of travelers we don't know if it's somebody local or somebody from Mexico, Perez said.
Regardless, Cerda and Perez two are already working out the numbers in their heads.
"We get one percent of the jackpot which comes out to $60,000 dollars, Perez said.
Signs are now posted at the store and people are making their way over to the Express Business Services store.
The new customers are hoping to be as lucky as the person walking around with a multi-million dollar ticket in their pocket.
Cerda and Perez said it TMs not the first prize to come out of here.
The couple sold $5,000 and $35,000 dollar winners.
