The Texas Lottery website has an all-new address and design. The site is now located at TexasLottery.com - it was previously TXLottery.org. However, any bookmarks or links to the old address will still work because visitors will be automatically redirected to the new site.
The new site launched with the heading "Luck's new address" and offers a redesign powered by updated technology, giving the site improved ease of navigation whether on a desktop, phone or other device.
"In redesigning the Texas Lottery website, our team focused on creating a streamlined, user-friendly experience for our players while making our website address easier to recognize," said Gary Grief, the Lottery's executive director.
"We are thrilled with the new design and layout of texaslottery.com and we will continue to keep up with technological advances so that we can maintain a visually appealing, convenient, and enjoyable experience for our website visitors."
What's changed from TXLottery.org
Here are a few of the changes that players will notice on the improved TexasLottery.com:
- More space on the homepage devoted to exciting new games
- A brand-new Player Area with useful resources
But don't worry, not everything has changed - Lottery fans can still find all the same features on the new website that they previously enjoyed on TXLottery, including the option to:
- Check your lottery tickets for winning numbers
- Search the Scratch Ticket Locator
- Watch a drawing webcast
- Make an in-person prize claim appointment
Unclaimed Texas Lottery Prizes
There are some high-dollar prizes out there that have not been claimed and are set to expire soon - could you be a TX Lottery winner?
- $7.75 million Lotto Texas jackpot expires July 8 at 5:00 PM CT. The winning Quick Pick ticket matched all six numbers in the January 9 drawing - 3, 11, 23, 35, 41, and 54. The ticket was purchased at Fuel Zone at 6301 FM 1960 W. in Humble. The ticket holder chose the cash option at purchase, which is $6,197,606.84 before withholdings. Check your Lotto Texas ticket to find out if you're the lucky winner, then call the Lottery at 800-375-6886 to make a booking to claim at its Austin headquarters
- $1 million Powerball prize expires July 12 at 5:00 PM CT. The ticket matched the five white ball numbers in the January 13, 2021 drawing - 4, 19, 23, 25, and 49, only missing the Powerball, 14. It was sold at ALTX Management at 3630 Interstate 35 S. in Waco
Gary Grief advised players to "take another look at their tickets, check the numbers again and if your numbers match, sign the back of the ticket and contact us to request an appointment to claim your prize."
TX Lottery draw game winners have 180 days from the draw date to come forward and cash their ticket. Some military personnel may be eligible for an extended claim period. Unclaimed winnings are returned to the state to fund programs authorized by the Texas Legislature.
Another more recent big prize that hasn't been claimed yet is a Lotto Texas ticket valued at $18.75 million that hit the jackpot in the June 2, 2021 draw. The lucky ticket matched all six numbers, 22, 33, 44, 45, 47 and 54 and was sold by Xpress Food & Fuel at 800 E. Parker Road in Plano.
"We look forward to meeting our newest Lotto Texas jackpot winner," said Mr. Grief. "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 to schedule an appointment to claim the prize."
One prize that has been claimed in the nick of time, a month before expiration, is a $5 million ticket sold at QuikTrip #963, at 1750 Wilmeth Road in McKinney. The winner, a local resident, has opted to stay anonymous.
