Texas is surely the place to be this weekend if you love your lotto and love jackpots even more.
There will be three drawings by Texas Lottery in as many days offering some truly life changing sums of money as jackpots. First, the Texas Powerball drawing goes off tonight with a mouth watering jackpot of $170 million. If the jackpot is hit, it will reset at $20 million which is the guaranteed minimum jackpot amount. If not, it will just roll over to the next draw and continue to grow. The rules aren’t too complex to grasp is you haven’t played before and now is as good a time as any to try our your beginner’s luck. Simply choose five numbers from the first field of 59 numbers and one Powerball number from the second field of 39 numbers. Secondly, the Lotto Texas drawing will also take place today with a jackpot of $94 million. Finally, the Texas Mega Millions draw last night which had an estimated jackpot of $54 million was also not hit so it will roll over to this Tuesday, 25 May, and will now be worth about $25 million! The guaranteed minimum jackpot for Mega Millions is lower than Powerball but still mighty impressive as it starts at $12 million. This also means that there is a pretty slim chance of winning the jackpot as the odds are 1 in 175,711,536.
