Over the first 10 weeks of its release, Casino Millions has become Texas Lottery’s best-selling $50 scratch game in state history, with sales of over $143m to date.
The game, which carries a total prize pot of $250m, including four top prizes of $5m apiece, has overall odds of one in 3.57 of winning any game. So far, two of the four top prizes have been claimed, including one in North Texas last week.

Our players enjoy high-quality, engaging scratch ticket games with exciting prizes, and Casino Millions delivers on all aspects.
