Texas Lotto Prizes
Texas Lotto’s generous prizes have helped it to become one of the most popular regional lottery games in the USA. The jackpot is guaranteed to be at least $5 million for every draw and increases by a minimum of $250,000 every time the prize rolls over. This has led to some huge prizes in the past and generated significant interest from players.
Texas Lotto Prizes and Odds
There are four standard Texas Lotto prize tiers with prizes awarded for matching three numbers or more. Players can add a feature called Extra! to their ticket for an additional $1, which boosts the prizes in the non-jackpot tiers and adds a $2 prize for matching just two numbers.
The Match 2 and Match 3 tiers are fixed prizes, with the larger amounts based on ticket sales and how many winners there are in that tier. Here is a breakdown of the prizes and the bonus that the Extra option brings:
|Prize Tier||Odds of Winning||Base Prize||Extra! Prize|
|Match 6 - Jackpot||1 in 25,827,165||Jackpot
(Minimum $4 Million)
|Match 5||1 in 89,678||$2,000||Base + $10,000|
|Match 4||1 in 1,526||$50||Base + $100|
|Match 3||1 in 75||$3||Base + $10|
|Match 2||1 in 9||N/A||$2|
Texas Lotto does not have a jackpot cap, meaning that it can keep rolling to huge amounts. If you are lucky enough to win the top prize, you will have the option to take it as a series of payments over a number of years, or as a reduced cash lump sum.
