I guess that so many people don't remember that Tx had a lottery game called the Tx Million, it was only 4 numbers and had a top prize of $1 Million, it was the game that the Tx2Step replaced.

Take a look:

I wish that they still had that game besides them also having the Tx2Step.

    Hey Lantern, that's pretty cool. I don't remember that game. I moved to Tx in 1998, but I didn't start playing until 1999, and then only bought Lotto tics.

    I like Tx 2 Step, never miss a drawing.

    I do wish they would get rid of Cash 5 and replace it with a game like PA's Quinto. The payoff is better and the odds are better than Cash 5.

      When Cash 5 first started out the jackpots rolled over. They started at about $100,000 or something like that. At first the drawings were twice a week then were increased to four drawings a week. It was when the TLC changed the drawings to six times a week and reduced the number field from 39 to 37 July, 29,2002 , the jackpots no longer rolled over and they started paying for 2/5.

      10-13-1995 TX Cash 5 first drawing was held.

      11-25-96 the TLC started having four Cash 5 drawings per week.

      07-29-2002 the TLC started having TX Cash 5 drawings six times per week and reduced the number field down to 37.

        Lantern,

        Thank you so very much for this wonderful piece of information.

        This is a true gem of lotto information.

        Thank You--Thank You--Thank You.

          That game lasted for some time, but for some reason some people don't remember it.

          The Tx2Step replaced it.

          I also don't like the low payouts for the TxCash5 Jackpots, nor the low payouts for the lower prizes either.

          Yes, I might perhaps like a game like the Pa's Quinto.

          A Quinto game could be:

          A pick 1, for the very first digit and then pay $5 for it.

          A pick 2 (Pair) for the very first straight pair (first 2 digits) and pay $50.

          A pick 3 for the first 3 straight digits and pay $500.

          A pick 4 for the first 4 straight digits and pay $5 000.

          A pick 5 for all the 5 straight digits and then pay $50 000.

          Perhaps the pick 3, 4 and 5 could also have boxed prizes or at least the pick 3 and 4.

          It could be once or twice a day 5 to 6 days a week.

          Even the sum it up game could be included for the pick 3 to 4 and or 5.

            I think that maybe some states pay more on their Cash 5 jackpots than Tx.

              Thank you much!

              The Texas Million game had numbers from 0 to 99 that is 100 possible "Pairs" for each of the 4 positions.

              The 0 was really a 00, the 1 a 01, Etc, 2 digits per number, that is it had all 10 decades from 0 to 9 and of course all 10 last digits from 0 to 9 also.

              It was the only "Jackpot" game whose numbers started with 0 instead of a 1.

              ---------

              I guess that maybe the odds of winning the jackpot on that game were not so good.

              But those who won't it, if anybody did, probably didn't complain about the game's odds of winning it.
