AUSTIN – An Abilene trustee claimed a $14.25 million Lotto Texas jackpot Tuesday, just two days before the ticket was set to expire Thursday.
The winning ticket was purchased from an H-E-B store at 1345 Barrow St. in Abilene.
The cash value option was chosen at the time of purchase and the claimant will receive one lump sum payment of $10,072,040.86.
“On behalf of the Texas Lottery, I want to congratulate the AHSODESKA Trust on their luck and good fortune,” said Gary Grief, executive director of the Texas Lottery.
The winning ticket matched all six of the numbers drawn for the June 17 drawing. The winning numbers drawn were 3-4-6-23-34-54. For selling the winning ticket, the H-E-B store was presented with a retailer bonus check for $142,696.06.
The trustee reportedly requested minimal publicity.
A ticket holder forfeits any claim to a prize for a draw game after the expiration of the 180th day following the draw date, according to the Texas Lottery. The deadline may be extended for a period of time for certain "eligible" military personnel.
Texas lottery said unclaimed prizes revert back to the state for programs authorized by the Texas Legislature.
