The Texas Lottery sold 23.2 million scratch-off lotto tickets on the first day of sales on May 29, 1992. This became a world record for first day lottery ticket sales, with the first ticket being bought at 6 a.m by Governor Ann Richards. With the start being such a success, the entire cost of starting up the lottery was earned back after just three hours of sales.
