It only takes one ticket to nab that win, but be honest: how many tickets do you plan on buying for your chance at the jackpot?
More importantly: what you would do when you win? Buy a home? A car? Pay off debt?
A win for anyone right now would be welcomed, with the pandemic hitting American families and businesses hard.
Personally, after donating to a few organizations I admire, I would love to purchase the Houston Astros and make every game $1 hot dog night. Everyone gets a bobblehead of their favorite player and fireworks every night when we finally get to go to a game in person.
“So far in 2020, there has only been one Lotto Texas jackpot winner, a Laredo resident that claimed a jackpot prize of $17.5 million for the drawing held on Jan. 15, 2020,” stated the press release.
Since its inception, the Texas Lotto has awarded $6.48 billion in prizes.
