A winning lotto ticket worth 12 million dollars turned into a pumpkin Monday (6/30) night.

State lottery officials say no one claimed the jackpot from the New Year's Day Lotto Texas drawing.

That means the unclaimed millions go into a fund that supports Texas public schools.

In Virgina a 1 million dollar Lotto ticket also expired. Unclaimed lottery winnings go to the state Literary Fund, which is used for public school projects and teacher retirement.
