A $6.25 million lottery ticket was sold at a Houston Circle K gas station on Saturday, according to Texas Lottery officials.
The winning ticket matched all six of the numbers drawn (10-14-22-28-40-44). The cash value option was selected at the time of purchase and the winner will receive $4.3 million.
The winner has yet to come forward and claim the prize.
“If you have the winning ticket, we encourage you to sign the ticket, put it in a safe place, seek financial
and legal advice, and call the Texas Lottery before coming to Austin to claim the prize. We look forward to
meeting you,” said Gary Grief, executive director of the Texas Lottery.
The winning Lotto Texas jackpot started as a $5 million prize on April 17 and rolled five times before
being hit. In addition to the jackpot-winning prize, 45,848 Lotto Texas tickets won lower-tier prizes ranging from $12,112 to $2 for the same drawing.
The jackpot for the next Lotto Texas drawing on Wednesday, May 8, will reset to $5 million.
Lotto Texas is played by picking six numbers from one to 54 and offers multimillion-dollar jackpots.
Drawings are held every Wednesday and Saturday.
