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?

Lotto Texas & Powerball - Expiring July 2021

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.
