Huge Texas Lottery jackpotFriday May 28th 2010
When you have the big multi state lottery games such as MegaMillions and PowerBall it can sometimes mean that individual state games are somewhat forgotten This is a shame as some of them are of course much easier to win and do often have attractive jackpots which are sometimes higher than the bigger lottery games. The huge Texas Lottery jackpot that is up for grabs this weekend is much higher than the MegaMillions this week and just typical of how these smaller games can climb, but sadly can go unnoticed.
The Texas Lottery game Lotto Texas is currently standing at a massive $97 million and with the MegaMillions recently having a winner on just $64 million, the Lotto Texas is looking very impressive at the moment. Of course it can’t compete with the current PowerBall jackpot of $220 million but will certainly be popular with those lottery players who prefer to buy lottery tickets for the games that are easier to win.
Lotto Texas is one of the simplest games to play that there is. Players simply pick six numbers from 54 and need to match all of those numbers to win the jackpot. However, the Texas lottery allocates prizes to those players who match as little as three numbers in a draw. The odds of winning a prize in Lotto Texas are one in 71 and draws for this game take place on Wednesdays and Saturdays and each game will cost $1 to play.
So if you are looking for an easier alternative to the PowerBall this weekend, then Lotto Texas could be the game for you.
