DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - You might want to check your Lotto Texas ticket. A Circle K along 16222 Wallisville Road in Houston sold a $6.25 million dollar winning Lotto ticket on Saturday. 

The winning ticket matched all six of the numbers drawn: 10-14-22-28-40-44. The person chose the cash value option when they bought the ticket. So they'll receive $4,309,883.85 million dollars. But, that person has not come forward.

The Texas Lottery says the winner has 180 days from the draw date to claim that prize.

"If you have the winning ticket, we encourage you to sign the ticket, put it in a safe place, seek financial and legal advice, and call the Texas Lottery before coming to Austin to claim the prize. We look forward to meeting you," said Gary Grief, executive director of the Texas Lottery.

The winning Lotto Texas jackpot started as a $5 million prize on April 17 and rolled five times before being hit. In addition to the jackpot-winning prize, 45,848 Lotto Texas tickets, including those with the Extra! add-on feature, won lower-tier prizes ranging from $12,112 to $2 for the same drawing.

The jackpot for the next Lotto Texas drawing on Wednesday, May 8, will reset to $5 million.

Lotto Texas is played by picking six numbers from one to 54 and offers multimillion-dollar jackpots. Drawings are held every Wednesday and Saturday at 10:12 p.m. CT. For $1 more per play, a player can select the Extra! add-on feature and win up to $10,000 more on non-jackpot prizes.
