How to Play and Win Texas Lotto
When buying your Texas Lotto tickets you need to select six numbers from 1 to 54 or allow the terminal to pick a line at random by using the Quick Pick option. You must match at least three numbers to win a prize on a standard game.
You can also pay a further $1 to add Extra! to your ticket which boosts all non-jackpot prizes and creates an additional winning tier, allowing you to claim $2 for matching just two of the winning numbers.
The jackpot starts at $4 million and is won by matching all six numbers. The top prize will roll until someone wins, meaning that it can often reach massive totals.
