Two Step

Put on your cowboy boots and dance the Texas Two Step for the chance to win a jackpot that starts at $200,000 and keeps growing until someone wins! Two Step creates the most jackpot winners in Texas each year, and if you shimmy off with a prize, you will be paid in one lump-sum amount.


Playing is easy. For $1 per play, select four numbers from 1 to 35, along with a Bonus Ball from 1 to 35. Alternatively, you can mark Quick Pick to have the numbers automatically selected for you.
