Texas Lottery Games and Drawing Schedule
Lotto Texas is Texas Lottery’s original jackpot game. The rules are simple: Just pick 6 numbers from 54, and match as many as you can. Match all 6 and win the jackpot, which typically reaches multimillion dollar levels. Drawings are on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 10:12 PM Central Time.
The Texas Two Step is easy and fun to play. Pick 4 numbers and an extra bonus ball, and try your luck at the $200,000 rolling jackpot. Drawings are on Mondays and Thursdays at 10:12 PM Central Time.
In All or Nothing, players can win up to $250,000 by matching all 12 numbers from a pool of 24. You can also win the same prize if you match none of the numbers. Smaller prizes ranging from $2 to $500 are also up for grabs. Drawings are held 4 times a day, 6 days a week.
The Texas Lottery’s Pick 3 game lets players pick 3 single-digit numbers from 0 to 9. Winners can take home the top prize of $500 by matching all 3 numbers. Drawings are held 4 times a day, from Mondays to Saturdays.
One of the more complicated games offered by the Texas Lottery, Daily 4 involves picking 4 single-digit numbers from 0 to 9. Numbers picked may be repeated, and the odds of winning are determined by a player’s chosen combination. Players also have the option to pick how they play – whether by matching the numbers in the same order as the draw, or in any order they appear – potentially winning up to $5000. Draws are held 4 times a day, from Mondays to Saturdays.
Take home up to $25,000 cash if you match 5 of 5 numbers in Texas Lottery’s Cash Five game. All you have to do is choose your combination from a pool of 35 numbers. Drawings take place from Mondays to Saturdays at precisely 10:12 PM Central Time.
