A Texas resident is now a whole lot richer after claiming a life-changing lottery prize. The resident from Pearland claimed a $17.75 million jackpot prize for the Lotto Texas drawing held on June 1, according to the Texas Lottery. The claimant selected the cash value option and will receive $11,938,006.94 before taxes.
The claimant, who chose to remain anonymous, matched all six numbers drawn (4-12-13-26-39-54). The winning ticket was purchased at Murphy USA at 3200 Dixie Farm Road in Pearland, Texas.
The next Lotto Texas drawing will be held Wednesday (June 8) and the jackpot is an estimated annuitized $5.5 million.
Earlier this week, a resident from Fort Worth claimed a $1 million Powerball prize, according to the Texas Lottery. The winning ticket was sold at Grandview Fast Stop at 1002 E. Criner Street in Grandview. The second-tier Quick Pick ticket matched all five white ball numbers (12-18-20-39-61), but not the red Powerball number (10) in the drawing on April 25.
So far in June, four lottery prizes have been claimed by Texas residents. A San Antonio resident won $3 million on a scratch-off and an Arlington resident won $1 million from a Powerball drawing.
