I have charted the division of the prize monies since July 1, 2000 for Lotto Texas -
Texas Lotto. They are grouped together in consecutive draws until there was a
Lotto Texas jackpot winner. You can also see who won, how much they
were paid and who sold the winning ticket.

When there is no Lotto Texas jackpot winner, his percentage of sales,
40.47% of sales, is "carried over." When someone finally wins Lotto Texas,
add the carryover from each drawing in the roll and this is how much he
receives UNLESS the "investment cost" (cost to fund the Texas Lotto jackpot
which is based on the current factor - interest rate) is greater than the amount
in the "prize pool." The TLC guarantees the greater of the two figures.

I keep the amount due a Lotto Texas winner current at all times.
Click here to see exactly how much you should collect if you win Lotto Texas.

Lotto Texas Prize Pool
50% of sales is how much the TLC is suppose
to return to players by way of prizes.


Prize Structure for Lotto Texas
(Effective 4-23-06 - From total sales)
and
(Effective 4-14-13 - From total sales)
6 of 6 winners divide - 40.47%
5 of 6 winners divide - 2.23%
4 of 6 winners divide - 3.28%
*3 of 6 winners - 4.02% is allocated to pay winners


States Share from Lotto Texas sales - 50% of total sales

*3 of 6 Lotto Texas winners receive a guaranteed prize of $3. It is for
this reason that we have no guarantee that we will really receive 50% of sales.

Unclaimed Prize Monies
Note: Keep in mind when reviewing the amounts held in winning
tickets that many players NEVER claim their prizes. Those funds go into
the "Unclaimed Prize Fund" and the money is not returned to players.

Why Aren't Lotto Texas Jackpots Increasing More?

Lotto Texas - Brief History
Lotto Texas began in Nov 1992. The matrix was 6/50.
The Texas Lottery added four balls (6/54) to the Lotto Texas on July 19, 2000.
The Texas Lottery changed the matrix again on May 7, 2003 - 5/44 and 1/44 - 88 balls.
The Texas Lottery changed the matrix again on April 23, 2006 back to 6/54, however,
they reduced the low tier prize amounts and lowered the prize pool to 50% of sales
The Texas Lottery added EXTRA to Lotto Texas on April 14, 2013. The matrix
and prize allocations remained the same. The add on game - with a cost of $1 -
increased the low tier prize amounts IF a player paid the extra dollar to play it.


When the TLC changed Lotto Texas on May 7, 2003, they lowered the
players percentage of sales from 55% to 52%. Then when they went
back to the matrix of 6/54 on April 23, 2006, they again lowered the
players percentage of sales from 52% to 50% with NO guarantee
that we'll actually see 50% of sales returned to players in way of prizes.
