Texas Two Step’ characteristics and rules 

Playing Texas Two Step is simple: you just need to choose four numbers from 1 to 35 and an extra Bonus Ball, also from 1 to 35. The order of the numbers doesn’t matter. You can try your luck twice a week, and for every draw without a winner, the jackpot grows!

History of Texas Two Step

The first time the Texas Two Step game was held was on May 18, 2001. Since then, the draw has not changed the format of the game. 

The draw’s name comes from the traditional Texas dance, the Country-Western Two-Step, or just Texas Two Step. It is a country-western dance with different variations, well known to Texans.

This draw is carried out through two drums. From the first one four white balls will be drawn to determine the four winning numbers of the draw. Next, a red ball will be drawn from the second drum to determine the Bonus Ball number. You will be the winner if your combination of four numbers plus the Bonus Ball match those of the draw.
