If You Won Lotto Texas on November 26, 2014
The TLC adopted a new rule effective April 23, 2006 & April 14, 2013.
It guarantees that the winner receives the greater of either
40.47% of "roll" sales OR the amount needed to invest
that will give a return of the amount advertised - called the
"investment cost." (CVO) The highest amount shown below is
how much they SHOULD invest for you (if annual pay) - If
CVO, should pay you - less taxes (25%). The 11/26/14 jackpot
is advertised at $7.75 million and is the 12th drawing in the roll.
(April 14, 2013 - New Lotto Texas Rule)

From ROLL Sales: $5,422,795
Est Cost To Fund Jackpot: $5,365,921

Taking the greater of the two figures above ...
After Minimum Taxes (CVO): $4,067,096
Short to Fund Jackpot: -0-

Cost based on TX rate/factor - 30 Years: 1.4443%
(Will owe more in taxes at end of year.
)


Ticket Sales For This Draw (11/26/14): $1,088,372
(Free tickets this draw: $0 not deducted)
Allocated to pay the jackpot winner from
just the Nov 26 drawing: $440,464

("Draw Sales" - Represents how many
tickets were sold for the 11/26/14 draw.
To guarantee a winner, they need to sell
the vast majority of the 25.8 million
combinations and then it is still ify.)

"Roll" Sales (12 draws): $13,399,543
"Roll" sales is how much they've sold for all draws
since the Oct 18, 2014 draw. The winners share
of sales is carried forward until there is a winner
and is kept in the "prize pool." The winner is
entitled to receive at least 40.47% of roll sales
which essentially means, all that is in the
jackpot prize pool. More info below ...

Schools

The schools do NOT see ADDITIONAL money as a result of lottery sales.
Whatever the lottery contributes to the School Foundation Fund just lessens the
amount the state has to take from the General Revenue Fund to place into the
school fund. Lottery money is not IN ADDITION to the budgeted amounts.

education, click here then click on "Watch this story."

Important Tidbits

The amount you see advertised, "$15 Million" represents the approximate amount one would collect AFTER the money you actually won was invested for 25 years. The "$15 Million" includes the interest earned from your actual winnings which is 40.47% of roll sales. It's just like being a commissioned sales person.

If you chose Cash Value Option, the amount shown above is the exact amount you have coming ... less taxes. I hope you marked CVO on your playslip.

If you chose Annual Pay, the amount shown above is how much the TLC should invest for you minus your first payment. The Texas Lottery buys securities that are backed by the US government called "zero's/strips." You are "suppose" to receive ALL of the earnings from your investment. At the time you collect your prize in Austin, before signing ANY papers, I strongly urge you to request copies of the actual investments made on your behalf. Those papers will include your "CUSIP" numbers and then you will be able to track the earnings through the U. S. Treasury. You should also obtain the rate to verify the return. How to do this is shown on the same page with the zero's/strips and CUSIP numbers - it's the last section on the page.

Advise to Players/Winners

1. Do NOT buy lottery tickets online. They are NOT legal. There are some sites that are selling Texas tickets for $2 apiece. Don’t fall prey to this for SEVERAL reasons ... #1 - You don’t know for sure that the site will really buy you a ticket - they could just pocket your money; #2 - Lottery tickets sell for $1 apiece and its against the law to pay more than that for a ticket - if you were to win - the TLC would not validate [pay] the ticket; #3 - only licensed retailers can make a profit - of .05 cents - for selling lottery tickets; #4 - It is against the law to use a credit card for purchasing lottery products.

2. Mark your playslip CVO (cash value option) - Do NOT choose Annual Pay. Then there will be no doubt that you will receive all that you really won which is in essence, 40.47% of total sales in the ROLL - Update - In Nov 2005, Texas changed its rule. They now guarantee the greater of either the "investment cost" or the amount in the prize pool.

Unlike most other states, Texas does not allow players to choose which way they want to receive their winnings after they won - Texas makes players choose annual pay or cash value option at the time the ticket is purchased. The TLC claims it has something to do with the IRS. But a quick call to the IRS asking which option players should take will result in the answer being CASH VALUE OPTION.

3. Should you actually win - don’t do anything for 30 days - calm down first. In the meantime, hire a lawyer and an accountant to help you understand investments and finance. Don’t tell anyone that you’ve won and buy excessive insurance. Put your signed winning ticket in a bank box - borrow maybe $50,000 to just blow - get it out of your system.
