The Aussie Bounce and Playback Pounce

May 29th played host to Lotto Texas and Powerball’s last drawings for the month. As thrilling as it would have been to see the Powerball jackpot beast be toppled, it wasn’t meant to be. One could argue that what happened Wednesday night was just as exciting, if not more. Sure, the prizes in Lotto Texas and Powerball respectively climbed to $6.75 million and $350 million, but how often do you see playbacks join forces to thwart the players?

The double playback action has Lotto Texas and Powerball fired up for June. On one hand, we all want to win, especially that crazy-high jackpot. On the other hand, we’re all asking in the back of our minds “How high can Powerball go?”

Will Lotto Texas and Powerball continue to run on their momentum or will at least one of them start June with their sails deflated?
