$9 Million Lotto Texas Jackpot Won in El Paso
If you bought a Lotto Texas ticket in El Paso for the November 28 draw, check your numbers - you could be the game's newest multimillionaire! The lucky ticket won the $9 million jackpot when it matched all six numbers drawn: 9, 13, 17, 20, 26 and 28. The ticket was sold at 7-Eleven #606, located at 1733 Brown St.
The winner has 180 days from the draw date to claim the prize, although no one has come forward yet. The ticket-holder chose the cash value option when purchasing, so they will collect a one-time lump sum payout of $7,637,969.88 before taxes.
"We look forward to meeting the latest Lotto Texas jackpot winner," said Gary Grief, executive director of the Texas Lottery. "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."
The Lotto Texas jackpot had been rolling since it was last won on September 30, when an anonymous Seguin resident won the $47 million top prize, which they took as a cash option of $39,767,339.23.
