BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Two women split a $3.2 million jackpot for a recent drawing of the Louisiana Lottery’s Lotto, the game’s largest jackpot since 1998.

The Louisiana Lottery says each player got $1.1 million after state and federal tax withholdings after winning the Oct. 10 drawing.

The winners were 54-year-old Karen Trosclair of Church Point and 53-year-old Victoria Cochran of DeRidder.

Trosclair won her ticket at a store in Opelousas and Cochran purchased her winning ticket in DeQuincy.

The Louisiana Lottery says both stores will receive a one-time selling bonus of $16,000, or 1 percent of the split jackpot prize.
