After 48 drawings, a quick pick ticket puchased in Alvin, Tx won the $76 million jackpot Wednesday.

The game is a ripoff.

    This game does take ages to crawl up to a nice jackpot prize. Then it wins quite fast.

    They need to beef up the Texas Lotto to get some speed going. However, when Texas Lotto has higher jackpot than Mega Million, I play it. Knowing the odds are much better.

        It' kinda like Ohio Classic Lotto in Ohio.  Even though OCL is a 6/49 game with better odds, it took over a year for its last big jackpot to build up to $36M+ and won.  Its jackpot only increases $100-$200K after each drawing, but once it exceeds the starting jackpot of MegaMillions, players start to take interest and it can climb a little faster.
