The Texas Lottery Commission says someone who bought a ticket at a Houston-area convenience store is the winner of the $144 million Mega Millions jackpot.
Commission Deputy Executive Director Gary Grief says the winner of Friday's multistate lottery prize has yet to come forward and claim the haul.
The commission said in a statement Monday that the ticket was sold at a Short Stop market in Katy, 26 miles from Houston, and that store is eligible for a $1 million retailer bonus.
Texas has also started selling tickets for the multistate, big-jackpot Powerball lottery. The first Powerball drawing for which Texas tickets will be eligible will take place Wednesday night with an estimated jackpot of $107 million.
