The Texas Lottery made a huge impact when it sold 23.2 million scratch-off lotto tickets on the first day of sales way back on May 29, 1992. The TX lottery became so popular that thousands of people attended lottery kick-off celebrations in various cities the night before tickets went on sale.

The first-ever lottery ticket was sold at Polk’s Feed Store in Oak Hill, and the sale of 23.2 million tickets set a world record for first-day lottery ticket sales. Moreover, the cost of starting up the lottery was quickly earned back in just after three hours of sales.

Since 1992, roughly $23 billion was generated for the Lone Star State, which included over $17 billion sent to the Foundation School Fund. Also, more than $39 million since 2010 was donated to the Texas Veterans Commission, which benefits the Fund for Veterans’ Assistance.

The TX Lottery has more than 17,000 retail partners across the state. These retailers can earn as much as 5% commission on gross lottery sales, including bonuses of up to $1 million for selling specific top prize tickets. They can also earn extra compensation based on specified sales performance goals through the Retail Incentive Program. In fact, retailers received about $237 million in bonuses and commissions in 2014. It was the largest amount earned by retailers in the history of Texas Lottery.

Players who win the TX Lottery come from all walks of life. One notable winner was Thomas Henderson who won a $28 million jackpot in March 2000. He was a former linebacker for the Dallas Cowboys, played in three Superbowls, and won one in the 1978 Pro Bowl. Unfortunately, Henderson fell on difficult times and lost most of his fortune because of alcohol and drug problems. However, he was able to get a lucky break when he won the massive lottery jackpot.

Games Available

The TX Lottery has a wide selection of games that are suited for almost everyone. These games include daily lottos and huge jackpot weekly games that are all available in the state. Some exclusive games that are exclusive to the state’s lottery players are Texas Two Step, Pick 3, Midday Pick 3, Midday 4, Daily 4, and Cash 5. Texas Mega Millions and Texas Powerball are also available. Texas Mega Millions became playable in December 2003 while Texas Powerball tickets went on sale in January 2010.

How to play

Playing Lotto Texas is super easy. All you have to do is to get a Lotto Texas playslip and choose six numbers from 1 to 54, or if you want to play faster, you can mark the Quick Pick box. The terminal will then select your six numbers for you. You can also ask your lottery retailer for a Quick Pick and the terminal will randomly generate all your numbers.

There is also a new Extra! add-on feature that gives you a chance to boost your non-jackpot prizes up to $10,000. This feature costs only an extra $1 for each play.

Also, there is a multi-draw option where you can play the same sets of numbers for more than one draw. Just mark the “Multi-Draw” box to play up to ten consecutive draws.

Lotto Texas draws occur every Wednesday and Saturday evening at around 10:12 p.m. CT. You won’t be able to buy tickets during the draw break from 10:02 to 10:15 p.m. CT.

Tickets can’t be purchased via mail, phone, or over the internet. You can only buy them through authorised retailers in the state. Draw game winning tickets are valid for 180 days from the draw date. Likewise, scratch card tickets are valid for 180 days from the closing date of the game.

Claiming your prize

To find out if you’ve won, you can check the Texas Lottery website for results of the latest drawings that will be posted on the homepage. You can also check winning numbers by watching live or reading many daily newspapers.

It is important for all players to sign the back of their tickets to protect it from being claimed by other people. You may claim prizes up to $599 at any licensed Texas Lottery retailer. Tickets will be validated before receiving payment for the prize.

You can claim prizes up to $2,500,000 at any Texas Lottery Claim Center along with a completed Texas Lottery claim form. Alternatively, you can also claim your prize by mail. Just send your signed ticket and completed claim form to the Texas Lottery Commission.
