There is still no Lotto Texas winner despite 72 drawings which means going into the next draw taking place on Wednesday 23rd September the jackpot stands at an incredible $44 million.
Rarely does an in-state lottery game boast this amount of jackpot. The amount on offer this week has certainly increased the popularity of the game with ticket sales at an all-time high.
Gary Grief, Executive Director of the Texas Lottery Commission said in a press release.
"Saturday night's Lotto Texas jackpot is the largest lottery prize available on the continent and can only be won by a Texas Lottery player.
We're hopeful that at least one player wins the biggest jackpot the game has seen in more than a decade this weekend.
As excitement continues to grow during this jackpot run, we want to remind our players to play responsibly," Grief said. "It only takes one ticket to win."
The rise of technology has also led to an increase in online ticket sales for Lotto Texas. It has never been easier to have fun playing global lottery games from almost anywhere in the world at theLotter.com.
Playing online is exactly the same as playing at an official retailer. Pick your lucky numbers from any mobile device or computer, purchase your ticket and if you win you keep all your prize!
Past winning Lotto Texas players to have struck a life-changing prize include a $97 million jackpot prize won in May 2010, a $30.25 million prize won by a Houston resident in May 2018 and a whopping $145 million won in June 2004.
