The February 9th Playback Spectacle

Momentum was ramped up Saturday night! For starters, Lotto Texas went ahead full throttle. This normally unassuming lottery appears to have developed a newfound spunk. Its affliction with Playback Fever was only tempered by its respectable $7 million grand prize.

Powerball, often seen as the grander of the two, showed a few symptoms of the Fever as well. However, a surprise Specific Order kept it from completely taking over. The prize continued climbing towards stratospheric heights, now standing at $242 million.
