A McKinney resident claimed a $17 million estimated annuitized jackpot prize for the Lotto Texas® drawing held on Aug. 16. The cash value option was selected at the time of purchase and the claimant received $9,784,117.86 before taxes.
The winning ticket with player chosen numbers matched all six of the numbers drawn (10-14-17-31-38-48). The ticket was purchased at 7-Eleven Convenience Store #35410A, located at 7650 Campbell Road, in Dallas. The claimant elected to remain anonymous.
The winner told the Texas Lottery they called their girlfriend when they saw that they won. It was the first Texas Lottery® prize the claimant won when playing Texas Lottery® games, so when they discovered they won the Lotto Texas jackpot for the Aug. 16 drawing, the winner was “overwhelmed and nervous.” With the recent Lotto Texas jackpot prize winnings, the winner plans to buy a new home and retire.
Lotto Texas is played by picking six numbers from one to 54 and offers multimillion-dollar jackpots. Drawings are held every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at 10:12 p.m. CT. For $1 more per Play, a player can select the Extra! add-on feature and win up to $10,000 more on non-jackpot prizes.
