September 30, 2016, 10:08 am ET

The Texas Lottery announced that it has achieved $5.068 billion in sales for fiscal year 2016, breaking the sales record it set just last fiscal year and resulting in a total contribution of $1.392 billion to Texas, the single largest annual transfer of revenue to the state.

How a retired NC potter won the lottery 111 times

September 29, 2016, 5:02 pm ET

One of the most prolific winners in North Carolina lottery history wants you to know two things: he doesn't cheat and he understands the games better than anyone.

Through late last year, no one had more big wins than retired potter Phil Morgan, who won 111 times and collected more than $500,000, an Observer data analysis found.

But that record comes with an asterisk. Most wins were for the Pick 4 game. If you play the same number combination multiple times on one drawing, and it hits, each ticket is counted as a winner.

The odds are 1 in 10,000 for picking the numbers in the exact order. Between August and October 2011, Morgan did that 73 times for $365,000.

New Zealand man wins $1M lottery after someone cut him in line

September 29, 2016, 9:34 am ET

A patient New Zealand Lotto player bagged a cool $1 million, all thanks to a pushy patron who decided to cut him in line.

The Tauranga winner of last week's $1 million Wednesday Lotto draw has put his win down to "good karma".

The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, bought his lucky ticket from Pak N Save Papamoa on his way home from work.

"I was waiting in line at the Lotto shop and another customer nipped in front of me," explained the winner in a written statement from Lotto New Zealand.

"I wasn't in any hurry, so I just let them go ahead and didn't say anything. I guess good karma pays off — if that hadn't happened, they might have had the winning ticket not me."
