Houston Produces Yet Another Lottery Winner
So do we all need to just start going to Houston to buy our lottery tickets? It seems so.
Texas Lottery has announced that another person from Houston has become a millionaire.
Lotto Texas was the winning device. May 4th a ticket worth $6.25 million was sold at the Circle K 2741477.
The winning numbers on May 4th were 10-14-22-28-40-44. If the winner chooses the cash option then they will receive $4,309,883.85. At this point, no one has claimed the prize, but since you 180 days to make a claim, there's no hurry. Feel free to contact an accountant and a lawyer.
Gary Grief, executive director of the Texas Lottery says...
"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."
In addition to the jackpot-winning prize, 45,848 Lotto Texas tickets, including those with the Extra! add-on feature 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.
