Tonight's night's Lotto Texas jackpot is 42-point-75-million dollars.
Texas Lottery officials say it's the biggest jackpot prize in North America, and the third-largest in the world.
The biggest previous jackpot was a 97-million-dollar prize a Dallas resident won in 2010.
An executive with the Texas Lottery reminds the public to play responsibly, which is to say, don't spend the mortgage payment on lottery tickets.
