A Justin resident could be the state' s newest millionaire, thanks the Texas Two Step.

The Denton County resident, who chose to remain anonymous — bought the ticket at Super Saver Foods on West First Street in Justin and cashed out $1,025,007 in winnings.

The winning numbers were 8, 9, 34, 35 and the bonus ball was 21.

The odds of winning this jackpot prize was 1 in 1.8 million, according to the Texas Lottery.

In the Texas Two Step, jackpots start at $200,000 and grow each time there is no winner. Drawings are Monday and Thursday nights at 10:12.

This is the latest North Texas big lottery win.

It's not that you're not lucky, just that you haven't been lucky... yet. Take a trip down memory lane and watch the Texas Lottery's very first drawing on November 14, 1992.

Last week, a player who chose to remain anonymous won $3 million from the $750 Million Winner's Circle scratch-off game. The ticket was bought at the QuickTrip at 3201 Golden Triangle Blvd.

Earlier that week, it was announced that a Haltom City resident had won the $5 Set for Life scratch-off game, taking the cash value and walking away with $1,999,446.80. That ticket was sold at the 4 Star Quick Pantry #2, 1325 Beach St. in Fort Worth.

A Little Elm resident in Denton County last month claimed the $1 million top prize in the $100 Million Texas Riches scratch-off game.

A week before that, a Fort Worth resident claimed a $1 million jackpot from the $1,000,000 Big Money scratch-off.

And in February, a Burleson resident claimed $1 million in the $100 Million Texas Riches scratch-off.

All the winners chose to remain anonymous, which is allowed under a new state law.
