AUSTIN, Texas (KETK)- Four Texas residents won top Texas Lottery prizes in one night on Oct. 8.
The top prizes for All or Nothing, Cash Five and the jackpot prize for Texas Two Step were each won and the total prize money summed up to $1.55 million, according to the Texas Lottery.
“The first time it happened, ironically, was on Oct. 8, 2012, so this date appears to be a lucky one for our players. We would like to congratulate this group of winners and we look forward to meeting each one of them when they claim their prize,” said Gary Grief, the executive director of the Texas Lottery.
Two winning tickets for Texas Two Step were bought. One was purchased in Kerrville and the other in Cedar Park. The winners will be splitting the $1.275 million jackpot.
The winner of All or Nothing Night bought a ticket in Grapevine, and they’re taking home $250,000. Additionally, a person bought the Cash Five winning ticket in Houston and scored a $25,000 prize.
