Two lucky people in Texas have won the lottery jackpot


The Lone Star State Lottery announced that the jackpot from the Texas Two Step drawing on October 12 will be split in two, as two lucky people have matched the winning numbers.

Both people have in their hands a ticket with the numbers 4, 10, 11 and 23, which correspond to the “white balls”, in addition to the number 4, which is the “bonus ball”.

In both cases, luck smiled thanks to the machine that picked the numbers at random.
