Tonight’s Lotto Texas jackpot is expected to exceed $93 million, with a cash value of $60.2 million. The last time the Lotto jackpot was won was on October 21, 2009, nearly 7 months ago! That $76 million jackpot was the largest in Texas Lottery history, until the current jackpot, rolled to $77 million on April 14, 2010
A single ticket sold in Los Angeles, California matched all 6 Mega Millions numbers to win the grand prize of $266 million. The couple, Gilbert and Jackie Cisneros got the winning ticket when Gilbert stopped to pickup some dinner and bought 10 tickets at the restaurant, just before Tuesday evening’s drawing. Gilbert, who was recently laid off from his job and wife Jackie an editor at the local NBC TV station have not yet decide on whether to take the $266 million paid over 25 years or the all cash prize of $165 million (before taxes), but she’s decided to keep working at NBC. Congrats Gilbert and Jackie.
