TEXAS — After nine drawings resulting in no winner, the Texas Two Step Jackpot is at it largest in a decade, $2.05 million for Thursday night's drawing.

This is the largest jackpot since 2009 and third largest ever.

A man out of Crystal Lake won the $2.15 million jackpot back in 2009, purchasing the winning ticket from a Timewise in La Marque. If a player hits all four numbers and the bonus ball, it will be the biggest win since then.

Twenty-one people have won so far in 2019, including four people who won prizes of $1 million or more.

The Texas Lottery benefits state programs, including the Foundation School Fund and Fund for Veterans' Assistance.
