This year’s larger than ever Mega Millions jackpot has created a new interest in lotteries. However, even with the increased media attention, many prizes still go unclaimed. It’s estimated that each year, there is $9 million unclaimed state lottery winnings.
LotteryTexts.com is a new service that helps lottery players easily see if they have the winning number combination so they can claim their prize. Once signing up, LotteryTexts.com sends free texts from lotteries around the country including Powerball winning numbers, the Multi-State Mega Millions Lottery, and the Hot Lotto Lottery.

For those hoping to win, it can be tough to keep up with all the lottery schedules and winning numbers. Take, Powerball for example. Powerball is played in 42 States, Washington D.C. and the US Virgin Islands. Winning numbers are drawn on Wednesday and Saturday evenings. The current jackpot is estimated is $70,000,000 annually, or $42,600,000 as a one-time cash payment before taxes. If unclaimed, the jackpot grows.
Finding the winning numbers can take a lot of time for those who play often, says Brandon Aldridge, a company spokesman. “Just trying to find out the winning lottery numbers and claiming your prize can be very hard work, especially if you play the lottery on a regular basis,” said Aldridge.
LotteryTexts.com texting service goes to any mobile phone (or email). It replaces outdated/mundane methods of getting lottery numbers. With tonight's Powerball drawing, many people will be hunting for the winning numbers.
In the past getting lottery information was time consuming and inconvenient. People had to check tickets to see if they won by going to the store where the tickets were purchased, watching the drawings on TV, checking the newspaper or calling phone numbers to get results.
“You can choose which lottery results to receive. We also alert you if there are any opportunities you may not be aware of such as lotteries coming up with particularly large prizes. Our goal is that you never miss lottery results again.” In addition, LotteryTexts.com keeps lottery players informed with the latest lottery news, including who won.
