Lotto Fever Takes Over Texas

For the first time in Texas Lotto history, the jackpot is in the triple digits.

It's billboards displaying the estimated $100 million jackpot for the Lotto Texas on Saturday that had people flocking to the nearest convenient store. The largest prize since Texas adopted a lottery has Lubbock in a Lotto Texas fever.

"All it takes is one and I got two," said Emilio Guzman.

Tickets that Emilio Guzman hopes will score him the $100 million prize.

"I haven't won nothing yet, but there's always a first time," he says.

Carmen, assistant manager at Buddy's Convenience Store, has reason to hustle customers into buying tickets. If someone purchases a winning ticket at Buddy's, 25% of the win goes to employees.

"We're just trying to push that ticket," she says.

But Carmen says the best part about her job is meeting the customers.

"It's interesting, you meet a lot of different people," she adds.

But with the same hope of winning the big jackpot.

"If I'm not lucky, I want somebody here in Lubbock to be," says a long-time Buddy's customer.

The chance that you'll actually purchase that winning ticket is about 1 in 47 million. So good luck.
