Tyler, TX Resident Has To Split Rare Texas Lottery Jackpot Win
Something Must Be In The Water Because Another East Texans Has Won Cash With The Texas Lottery.
Its starting to become an almost weekly occurrence now that we're announcing another Texas Lottery winner from the East Texas area. In less than a month's time, we've received news that 3 people from our area have won cash but unfortunately for the latest winner they will have to split their winnings with NINE other people.
10 Texas Two-Step jackpot winning tickets were sold in Nine Different Cities.
According to The Texas Lottery, Thursday, April 6, 2023 will go down as a lucky one for Texas Two Step players across the Lone Star State, as 10 jackpot winning tickets were sold for the game’s advertised jackpot worth $1.55 million, which will be split among the 10 jackpot winners.
Prior to Thursday night, there had been only one other time in the game’s 22-year history that 10 jackpot-winning tickets were sold for a single Texas Two Step drawing. For the Aug. 10, 2006 drawing, 10 jackpot winning tickets, all self-picked numbers, were sold for the advertised $700,000 jackpot prize.
One Winning Ticket Was Sold In Tyler.
Winning tickets were also sold in Carrollton, Cedar Park, Duncanville, Fort Worth, Houston (2), Lubbock, San Angelo, and San Antonio. A quick check of the math and the winners will each receive roughly $100,000 each before taxes so while they won't be a millionaire, I'm sure they can catch up on a few bills and look forward to a fun summer.
