According to the Texas Lottery, the Texas Two-Step game is renowned for “Making the most jackpot winners in Texas each year,” and in 2024, it continues to fulfill this promise. This year, 17 players have already hit the Texas Two-Step jackpot, which typically ranges from the base amount of $200,000 to slightly over $1 million. Players must match all four standard numbers plus the bonus ball to win the jackpot.

The odds of winning the Texas Two-Step jackpot are approximately 1 in 1,832,000. While these odds are slim, they are significantly better than the 1 in 300,000,000 odds of winning the Powerball or Mega Millions jackpots.
