Everyone who plays the lottery in the state of Texas has to be a little bit of a dreamer, including myself. While I don’t play often when the jackpot gets to a huge amount, I am more likely to spend a few dollars and pick up a ticket. We are all well aware that when we purchase that ticket the odds aren’t very good that we actually win, but as you know you can’t win if you don’t play. 

Well in some cases here in the state of Texas there are people that actually win the lottery and they were owed the millions of dollars, but the problem is that they don’t know about it. According to MySanAntonio, there has been over $330 million dollar's worth of lottery winnings that have been unclaimed since 2007.
