The winning ticket with the player’s chosen numbers matched all six of the numbers drawn, which were 10, 14, 17, 31, 38, and 48.

The cash value option was selected at the time of purchase and the claimant will receive $9,784,117.86 before taxes, according to the release. The winner has 180 days from the draw date to claim the prize.

In addition to the jackpot-winning prize, 49,789 Lotto Texas tickets won lower-tier prizes ranging from $2 to $11,040 in the same drawing.
