Texas Rollovers Stopped by Player in Cuero

A Lotto Texas player in Cuero scooped the $36.25 million Jackpot on Saturday, May 31, 2014. The lucky winner has yet to come forward but the city is buzzing with news of the win.

"This is Cuero," said local Councilman Doyle Cruz. "There has never been a winner here in Cuero, Texas."

Saturday's jackpot was unusually large for a Lotto Texas drawing, but that's not surprising because there have been two rollovers each week since a player in League City, Texas, won the $12 million jackpot on January 1, 2014.

Saturday's US Powerball jackpot proved to be more elusive. An eleventh rollover has increased the estimated jackpot to $192 million. The next Powerball drawing is on Wednesday, May 4, at 22:59 (Eastern Time).
