Time Running Out on $12 Million Lotto Texas Jackpot

Jun 30, 14 Time Running Out on $12 Million Lotto Texas Jackpot

June 30, 2014 – There are only a couple hours left before $12 million turns into 12 million pumpkins and a would-be multi-millionaire misses their ticket to the good life.

The Lotto Texas ticket matched all six numbers drawn in the game’s Jan. 1 drawing to win the $12 million prize.  Those winning numbers were 15, 17, 43, 45, 47, 50.

The winning ticket was sold at the South Shore Shell, located at 3390 FM 518, League City, Texas, according to a Texas Lottery press release.

Though the $12 million winner has yet to come forward, South Shore Shell has already received their part of the big win.  On March 6, the store was presented with a check for $121,385 as a bonus for selling the winning ticket.

The Texas Lottery gives winners a 180-day window beginning the day of the drawing to claim their prizes.  After 5 p.m. on the final day of the claims period, the prize money goes into state coffers to help fund the programs that Texas’ lottery supports.

If the winner does make it to the Texas Lottery claims office before 5 p.m., they’ll have a choice to make: take the full $12 million prize as an annuity, or “take the money and run” with the cash option, which is worth about $7.56 million.
