This announcement comes on the heels of a $3M Digital Scratch winner in Colorado in December
JERSEY CITY, N.J., Jan. 24, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Lotto.com, the nation’s first online lottery platform to digitally deliver draw games and scratch tickets, is celebrating another monumental customer win with their first-to-market and innovative Digital Scratch ticket offering. The $1 Million top prize was won from the fan-favorite $1,000,000 Gold Rush scratch game in Texas on Monday, January 15th.
The winning customer, Deborah C., who is currently facing financial challenges and residing in a remote country area, initially came across Lotto.com via a Facebook advertisement. Her interest was immediately sparked by the convenient online experience. Deborah first began playing draw games and ultimately ordered her winning scratch ticket. “I forgot I had even ordered it,” said Deborah, “I got an email saying my ticket was ready to scratch, and I couldn’t believe I had won!” In speaking with the Lotto.com team, Deborah shared that she has been speaking with her sister about dream cars, dream vacations and they may even go on a vacation to celebrate the winnings.
“We’re thrilled to kick off 2024 with another big Texas win on Lotto.com, especially with our Digital Scratch tickets, the first in the industry!” said Thomas Metzger, CEO of Lotto.com Inc. “We’ve currently delivered over $43 Million in prizes to our customers and look forward to many more big wins in the future.”

The poker community and poker fans around the world are invited to join us in a heartfelt celebration of the remarkable life and enduring legacy of Doyle “Texas Dolly” Brunson. This special event will take place on July 2 at noon in the Jubilee Theater at Horseshoe Las Vegas.
Doyle Brunson made an indelible impact on the game of poker. From his early days as a fearless player roaming the Texas gambling circuit to his reign as a dominant force in the Las Vegas cash game scene, Doyle left his mark on the poker world.
Not only did he conquer the high-stakes cash game scene, but Doyle played a pivotal role in the growth and popularity of tournament poker shepherding in a new wave of poker fans. His support for the World Series of Poker® and the World Poker Tour® helped elevate these events to their current global prominence.
Beyond his achievements as a player, Doyle Brunson revolutionized how the game of poker is taught. His iconic books, including “Super/System,” “Super/System II,” and “The Godfather of Poker,” became authoritative resources in poker instruction and continue to inspire generations of players.
The celebration of Doyle Brunson’s life is organized by his management company, Poker Royalty, LLC, in conjunction with the World Series of Poker®, The World Poker Tour®, and PokerGO®. The event promises to be a moving tribute, featuring cherished memories and heartfelt remarks from Doyle’s closest friends and family. Renowned poker legends such as Jack Binion, Lyle Berman, Dewey Tomko, Billy Baxter, Eric Drache, Phil Hellmuth, and Daniel Negreanu will be among those sharing their reflections on Doyle’s extraordinary legacy.
This event is free of charge and open to the public. Doors to the Jubilee Theater will open at 11:30 a.m. and seating will be first come, first served. Join us as we honor the life of a true poker icon and celebrate Doyle Brunson’s lasting impact on the game we love.
Success for Efforts to Bring Mobile Sports Betting and Resort Casinos to Texas
The campaigns to bring resort casinos and mobile sports betting to the southern American state of Texas have been given significant boosts via news that a trio of associated legislative efforts have made it beyond the committee stage.
The Texas House of Representatives’ 13-member State Affairs Committee recently voted to advance House Joint Resolution (HJR) 155 and its enabling House Bill (HB) 2843 to the floor of the Texas State Capitol for a full vote. The successful passage of these proposals from Republican legislators Charlie Geren and John Kuempel respectively could see casino gaming brought to a limited number of destination resorts across ‘The Lone Star State’ including two for the area around the city of Dallas.
These two measures are now destined to be put to a vote before the 150 members of the Texas House of Representatives in hopes of being able to organize and hold a referendum on an associated constitutional amendment for as soon as November 7. Should residents of the giant state subsequently support this plebiscite and Texas would be permitted to license as many as eight Las Vegas-style resort casinos featuring high-class entertainment complexes, restaurants and gaming floors in addition to four or five-star hotels, convention facilities and retail elements.
Adding to this and the members of the State Affairs Committee have similarly approved a proposal from local Republican legislator Jeff Leach that is seeking permission to bring mobile sports betting to Texas. This measure is now destined to go for a vote before the full Texas House of Representatives and calls for individual operators to pay a 10% betting revenues tax after stumping up a $500,000 licensing fee.
The pro-casino Texas Destination Resort Alliance lobby group applauded the former moves and explained that millions of Texans currently travel to casinos in neighboring states such as Louisiana and Oklahoma where they annually spend an estimated $5 billion. The group’s spokesperson, Matt Hirsch, furthermore asserted that bringing such gambling-friendly facilities to cities such as Dallas, Houston and San Antonio would engender massive economic growth, create thousands of jobs and allow the jurisdiction to collect billions of dollars in tax that could be used to support a range of public safety, infrastructure and education programs.
“The efforts to bring destination resorts to Texas made significant progress with today’s vote,” Hirsch said. “Texans have made it clear that they want destination resorts in Texas and we are now one step closer to ultimately allowing them to decide on this issue. Our members thank and applaud the State Affairs Committee members for advancing Representative Geren’s and Representative Kuempel’s legislation.”
