This is the game's highest jackpot in more than 10 years, with an estimated cash value of $39.8 million. The prize rolled after no ticket matched all six numbers drawn by the Texas Lottery on Saturday, September 26. 150,230 players did win lower-tier prizes, including 10 lucky winners who hit $12,224.00 each by matching five numbers and adding the Extra multiplier.
The Lone Star State favorite now exceeds the jackpots for US games Powerball ($34 million) and Mega Millions ($32 million) as well as Canada's Lotto Max (US$41.3 million). Worldwide, it sits just behind Italy's SuperEnalotto at US$49.1 million."Lotto Texas sales have been strong during recent weeks, which means more revenue for the state of Texas," said Gary Grief, executive director of the Texas Lottery Commission. "Jackpots this large generate a lot of excitement ... I hope to congratulate the biggest Lotto Texas jackpot winner in over a decade after Wednesday night’s drawing."
2020 started off with a bang for Lotto Texas when a Laredo resident hit a $17.5 million prize on January 15. That was the only jackpot win of the year so far. After eight months of rollovers, could this be the week the top prize finally goes off?
Wednesday's jackpot is the highest since a single ticket scooped $97 million on May 29, 2010. The winning ticket was purchased at 7-Eleven on Garland Road in Dallas. The amazing prize was claimed by The Bilmar Trust.
The last jackpot win over $30 million was on May 16, 2018, when a Houston player hit $30.25 million with a ticket from MJ's All Season Food Store in Houston.
The current jackpot is nearly one-third of the biggest prize in the game's history, $145 million won in the June 19, 2004 draw. The lucky ticket was purchased in El Paso and the prize was claimed by VOM Enterprises, Ltd.
