Albuquerque resident Christopher Henderson won the $255,000 jackpot in Tuesday’s Roadrunner Cash® drawing, matching the winning numbers of 5, 15, 18, 30 and 33 — numbers he replayed from an older quick-pick ticket, the New Mexico Lottery announced.

It was Henderson’s third win playing Roadrunner Cash.

He won a $217,000 jackpot in October 2010, playing a blend of his favorite numbers and numbers generated by the lottery’s gaming system.

In December 1999, he won a $15,000 jackpot, the lottery said in a news release.

The odds of winning just one Roadrunner Cash jackpot are approximately 1 in 435,000, according to the release.

The 52-year-old Henderson bought his winning ticket at the Corner Store at 7940 Ladera Drive NW in Albuquerque, the lottery said. The store had previously sold 25 large prize-winning lottery tickets, including Henderson’s $217,000 prize in 2010.

For selling a jackpot-winning ticket, the store is eligible for a $1,000 lottery bonus.
