AUSTIN – Odessa resident Reymundo Arredondo traveled to Texas Lottery® headquarters in Austin yesterday to claim the $3,942,945.76 cash value of Saturday’s estimated annuitized $6.25 million Lotto Texas® jackpot. Arredondo’s ticket was the only one to match all six numbers drawn – 7, 15, 26, 31, 51 and 54.

Overall odds of winning any Lotto Texas prize are one in 71.1, and odds of winning the jackpot prize are one in 25,827,165.
For selling the winning ticket, the Kent Kwik #216, located at 4117 Andrews Highway in Odessa, is eligible for a retailer bonus of $62,500.
