CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS — The Texas Lottery Commission announced it is going to be easier for players to purchase lotto tickets.

That's because Texas will have the first-in-the-nation opportunity to get Powerball® and Mega Millions® tickets printed on cash register receipt paper, referred to as receipt ticket while visiting the Business Centers of participating Texas H-E-B stores.

The new receipt tickets can be purchased at any H-E-B Business Center cash register.

Quick Pick numbers are printed on the receipt, along with a lottery barcode, and are valid for the next available Powerball or Mega Millions drawing.

“Texas continues to break ground with ‘in-lane’ lottery solutions that provide our players direct access to the games they love in the most convenient ways possible,” said Gary Grief, executive director of the Texas Lottery. “These tickets look different than any other that the Texas Lottery has ever produced, as they are the first lottery tickets ever printed on cash register receipt paper rather than on lottery rollstock by a dedicated lottery terminal."

Players will notice a lottery barcode at the bottom of the ticket, which can be scanned using the Texas Lottery App to check the winning status.
