MONTGOMERY, Texas - Someone in Baytown can now call themselves a multimillionaire.

According to the Texas Lottery Commission, a Baytown resident who elected to remain anonymous won nearly $24 after matching all six of the numbers. 

The winner bought the ticket at the Murphy USA gas station located at 18702 Highway 105 near Cape Conroe Drive.

Wednesday night’s lucky numbers were 5, 9, 26, 38, 41 and 44.

According to the Texas Lottery Commission, the winner opted to receive the cash value and will be received a total of $18,067,668.07 after taxes.
