A Denton County resident won a huge jackpot last week, taking home $16.25 million from the Jan. 1 Lotto Texas drawing.
The Texas Lottery said a person from Highland Village bought their winning Quick Pick ticket at RaceTrack on Justin Road in Flower Mound.
The player, who asked to remain anonymous, selected the cash value option worth an estimated $12,660,841.60 before taxes or an estimated $9.5 million after taxes.
The next Lotto Texas drawing will be held on Jan. 12. The estimated jackpot prize for the drawing is expected to be $6 million.
