Saturday Night Playback Special

This weekend was about celebrating a milestone in human achievement and looking forward to what the future may bring. Lotteries, you see, can’t hold countdowns, throw commemorative parties, or reminisce. Instead, they engage in playbacks.

Mega Millions got bit by the playback bug this past Friday. That bug bit at least one other lottery July 20th, 2019. Both Lotto Texas and Powerball saw their respective jackpots swell to $12.75 million and $63 million. Question is, which lottery got bit?
