SAN ANTONIO – The Lotto Texas jackpot is an estimated $44 million after another night with no big winner.
It is currently the largest jackpot in North America and the third-largest jackpot in the world, according to LotteryPost.com.
The winning numbers for Saturday were 3-5-28-31-36-46 and a total of 31 people hit five numbers out of six but nobody was able to nab the jackpot prize.
A total of 143,021 people won prizes ranging from $2 to $12,735.
The current jackpot remains the largest prize for the game in over 10 years since the May 29, 2010 drawing which had an advertised $97 million jackpot, according to lottery officials, who said the winning ticket for that drawing was sold at a 7-Eleven in Dallas located at 8902 Garland Road.
So far this year, only one person has won a Lotto Texas jackpot and that was a Laredo resident who claimed $17.5 million for the drawing on Jan. 15.

Ticket sales are not available during the draw break, from 10:02 - 10:15 p.m. on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
