LARGEST LOTTO TEXAS JACKPOT SINCE 2010 UP FOR GRABS TOMORROW
Texas Lottery players have a chance to win the game's largest prize in more than 10 years. With no jackpot-winning tickets sold for the August 29, 2020 drawing, the game’s jackpot prize has grown to an estimated $36.75 million for the Sept. 2, 2020 drawing - making the largest jackpot since May 29, 2010 drawing when the game boasted an advertised $97 million jackpot prize. Wednesday night’s jackpot currently stands as the 5th largest lottery prize up for grabs. Gary Grief, executive director of the Texas Lottery Commission said the following:
“I look forward to congratulating the biggest Lotto Texas winner since 2010. As growing jackpots tend to generate much excitement, we want to remind our players to play responsibly. It only takes one ticket to win.”
The winning ticket for the May 29, 2010 Lotto Texas drawing was sold at 7-Eleven Convenience Store #21972, located at 8902 Garland Road, in Dallas, and was claimed by The Bilmar Trust. The last time the game had a jackpot winner of more than $30 million was for the May 16, 2018 drawing when an advertised $30.25 million prize was claimed by a Houston resident, who purchased the winning ticket at MJ’s All Season Food Store in Houston. The largest Lotto Texas jackpot in game history was an advertised $145 million prize for the June 19, 2004 drawing, which was sold in El Paso and claimed by VOM Enterprises, Ltd. Since launching in 1992, the Lotto Texas jackpot has awarded $6.48 billion in prizes. So far in 2020, there has only been one Lotto Texas jackpot winner, a Laredo resident that claimed a jackpot prize of $17.5 million for the drawing held on Jan. 15, 2020.
Make sure you get your tickets and best of luck to you all!
