Texas Lottery players will be getting a brand new game to play, starting next week.

On Sunday, Sept. 27, tickets for the new Texas Triple Chance game will go on sale at lottery retailers throughout the state. It is the Texas Lottery's first all-new draw game since All or Nothing was launched on Sept. 9, 2012.

The new game is played like a traditional lotto-style game, in which players choose seven numbers between 1 and 55. But unlike the other Texas Lottery games, there are 10 numbers drawn by the lottery, and players can win by matching any of those 10 numbers to the seven numbers they played.

Matching all seven numbers on a play wins the top prize of $100,000.

Each ticket costs $2, but that $2 actually provides three opportunities to win. In addition to the original seven numbers played (either by the player choosing their own numbers or asking for a Quick Pick), the lottery also prints two extra Quick Pick plays on the ticket. Each of the three plays on a ticket is a "chance", hence the name "Triple Chance".

A player can also purchase a multi-draw ticket, in which the same three sets of numbers on the ticket will be entered automatically into up to 12 consecutive drawings.

Aside from the top $100,000 prize, there are prizes ranging from $2 to $500 that can be won by matching as few as three numbers on a play.

The top $100,000 prize must be claimed at a Texas Lottery Claim Center with a completed Texas Lottery claim form, but any of the other prizes can be claimed at any Texas Lottery retailer. Prizes must be claimed no later than 180 days after the draw date.

Texas Triple Chance drawings are held Monday through Saturday at 10:12 pm Central Time. The winning numbers will be published on Lottery Post's Texas Lottery Results page minutes after each drawing.

Like all of the primary Texas Lottery drawings, Texas Triple Play drawings will be conducted using a traditional lotto ball machine.  The public can easily watch the drawings, since the draw studio — with its walls made of glass — is visible from the street.

The first Texas Triple Chance drawing will be on Monday, Sept. 28.

So in essence it's fancy marketing for a game where you have to buy at least 3 lines.

    i don't think so. you get a couple of bonus numbers twice when you overpay the 2.00 for this really bad payout game. why you can get 100,000.00 for 1.00 in most states cash 5 game (except texas) for picking 5 out of 35 numbers. which would you play? texans really are getting shafted in most of their games they offer. this new game offers a few more minor prizes to keep people playing, but if i were a lottery player in texas i'd move.

      It sounds similar to a 6/39 game KY had called Three Line Lotto with a rolling jackpot starting at $100,000. Players could pick 6 numbers or get a QP and got another two 6 number lines of QPs. They won the jackpot if any of the lines matched 6 numbers, prizes for matching 3 to 5 numbers on one line, prizes for matching combined 5 or more numbers on all three lines.

      The game was replaced by 5 Card Cash in 2012.

        Similar that there are three lines on a ticket, but very different in that with this new game it's just three separate plays -- you can't match numbers from different lines to form prizes.

          I like this a lot.  I wish California, (1) would use mechanical balls, and (2) allow the public to see the draws from the street.

            Texas should offer a subscription service, it would be convenient for players and raise additional revenue for the state.

            We all get a lot out of lotteries!

              The prizes are a little low for getting 5 of 7 or 6 of 7. It look like the best feature of this game is you pick 7 number but they pull 10 number , this is the up side of this game.

                What I don't like is that they force you to play 2 sets of Qick Picks for every line of numbers you choose.  For that reason, I'll be giving this game a pass.

                If I wanted to play QPs, I would ask for QPs.  Are they aftraid that self-picks will win too much? ROFL

                  Agreed.  Massachusetts offers subscription over the phone or in person for its Megabucks game.  I believe the stupid, archaic federal law circa 1961 forbids the purchase of the likes of Mega Millions, Powerball, Lucky for Life because they are multistate.  Again, I bought all mine on Cape Cod in July and so far won $12 on Lucky for Life, check came yesterday!

                    the minor prizes are too low. the top prize is too low. forcing 3 quick pik numbers on you takes away from the spirit of the lottery which should allow you to pick your own numbers if you so choose. all texas lottery players should flee before they are fleeced playing this game.

                      I play all or nothing once in a while.  The odds are better but it still is a sucky game for $2

                        Yep, the similarities end with that and drawing 10 numbers to match 7.
