At convenience stores across the state, there was a familiar clatter as lottery machines spit out tickets one after another. The $53 million jackpot is one of the largest in Texas Lotto history. The massive jackpot had even casual betters trying their luck.
"(Wednesday's) been one of the busiest days in recent memory. It's been a while since it's been up this high, so everybody's making a mad dash," said one Lubbock convenience store clerk.
