The House Bill 54 for the establishment of the Texas State Lottery was introduced on July 11, 1991. The amendment to the Texas constitution was approved by the voters of Texas on November 5, 1991, authorizing lottery sales in Texas. The first game introduced by the lottery was a scratch-off game called Lone Star Millions, and its first ticket was sold to then-Governor Ann Richards on May 29, 1992. It was on April 23, 2013, the House voted not to recommission the Lottery Texas Commission, which would probably end the lottery in Texas. Later that day, the House reversed the course with a new vote on the bill.
Lotto Texas is the first in-house drawing game offered by the Texas Lottery with sales beginning on November 7, 1992. The first drawing for the game was held on November 14, 1992, with the first jackpot won on November 28, 1992. Since the game’s inception, it has been producing innumerable lottery winners!
