VideoVideo: VIDEO: Reviewing (and winning!) Texas Lottery scratch-offsRating:

But how much did we win?

By Kate Northrop

MARTINSVILLE, NJ — In an exciting partnership with the Texas Lottery, Lottery Post today released its latest video that gives you a taste of what kinds of games players can try out in the Lone Star State.

Those who've watched our previous videos might remember the video we released a few months ago about a huge, oversized scratch-off ticket from the New Jersey Lottery.

For this video, the Texas Lottery sent us a unique sampling of some of the instant games that are currently available so we could try our hand at scratching them off and review them for players looking to buy their next ticket.

WATCH: Reviewing Texas Lottery Scratch-Offs (+ Nice Wins!)

The games we reviewed feature a range of different price points, designs, prize offerings, and second-chance promotions, so you can see a variety of what the Lottery has to offer. But the exciting question — did we win anything? You'll have to watch and find out!

Check out our full review and hear our thoughts by visiting Lottery Post's official YouTube channel, and be sure to tell us your favorite ticket in the comments. We gave you our thoughts, but we can't wait to hear yours.

I'll be in Austin in December. I will try out a few. Great review by the way.

    Very good video Kate. The best thing about your scratch-off reviews is that you always mix in good, useful information as you are busy scratching. The  New Jersey and Texas tickets look very good, my states needs to pick up the pace. Loved the gigantic 'Break the Bank" ticket.

      Nice of the Texas lottery to send some tickets to play.   This great PR for their lottery and will watch your video shortly!

        Kate, checkout Fredericksburg, which is a neat town in the Hill Country. Lots of shops and place to eat, and has a Pacific War museum. It's a couple hours west of Austin

        BTW, you can cash in your winning tix at any store in Texas that sells lottery. Doesn't have to be in Austin.

          It doesn't appear that you can mail in winning tickets?  Surprised me; had mailed scratch tickets back to Massachusetts, Rhode Island and California with no issues.

            You can mail in winning tx. She just mentioned going to Tx.

            I wouldn't fly half way across the country just to cash in $40 worth of lottery tix.

              Yes, you can absolutely mail in winning tickets. We put a little note in the video description on YouTube regarding claim methods to clarify. I also wouldn't book a flight just to collect a small amount, but I am hoping to save the claim for a potential trip in the future. Feels more authentic to me that way Smiley That's just me!

                Thanks for the great video.

                I think those scratching tools are pretty cool. When will they be available? I don't always carry change so I sometimes have to improvise a ticket scratching tool.

                    Nice review, Kate, thanks!

                    I get down to Texarkana every wonst in a while.

                    Maybe I'll take some of them Texas bushwackers' money back to Tennessee next time. 

                                     Merry Christmas!                                

                    (I don't say "Happy Holiday" for the 4th of July and I ain't sayin' it for Christmas either)

                      That's pretty cool and I look forward to getting one.

                      I splurged on some scratch offs this weekend and had some fun.

                      Bought $70 worth of scratch offs and won $70 back! Not what I'd hoped, but not bad.

                      I bought 2 $10 scratch offs and 10 $5 scratch offs.

                      Broke even, but had fun!
