Thousands of lottery tickets sold at a Texas convenience store on Sunday have helped raise more than $300 million to help pay for Hurricane Harvey relief efforts, the US Department of Homeland Security said.
The lottery was a joint venture between the city of Austin and the city’s liquor and lottery commission, which had previously held the event at its downtown headquarters.
The Texas Lottery, which operates in 20 states, said more than 6,000 tickets were sold during the event, which was held at a downtown store in the Austin area.
The winning numbers were 7, 8, 9, and 10.
The winning numbers for the winning tickets were 713, 724, 726, 731, 736, and 737.
More:The $300m haul included more than 4,300,000 lottery tickets, the department said in a statement.
“These lottery sales were the largest lottery sale in Texas history,” the department added.
“This sale has provided significant relief to Texans and helped pay for the construction of FEMA-funded infrastructure and relief efforts.”
