No one won the Lotto Texas jackpot Wednesday night so the pot continues to swell giving Texas players the game's largest prize in more than a decade.
With no jackpot-winning tickets sold for Wednesday's drawing, the game’s jackpot prize has grown to an estimated annuitized $37.5 million for Saturday drawing -- or $31.6 million with the cash value option.
The Texas Lottery said that 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.
The next drawing will be the largest jackpot since May 29, 2010 drawing when the jackpot grew to $97 million. The winner of that jackpot bought the winning ticket at a 7-Eleven on Garland Road in Dallas. 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.
Since launching in 1992, the Lotto Texas jackpot has awarded $6.48 billion in prizes.
Texas also participates in two multi-state lotteries -- Powerball and Mega Millions. The next Powerball jackpot is estimated to be worth $66 million (drawings Wednesday and Saturday) and the next Mega Millions jackpot is estimated to be worth $88 million (drawings Tuesday and Friday).
