One Belton resident became an instant millionaire after claiming a $1 million prize from a scratch ticket game.

The ticket was purchased at LC Sarah Mart, on 608 E. Central Ave., in Belton. The claimant took home a second-tier prize from the Texas Lottery scratch ticket game 'Instant Millionaire'.
