The Circle of Rising Jackpots

Lottery jackpots have their own cycle. They rise, get claimed, then reset, and the cycle repeats ad infinitum. This summer has seen one lottery’s jackpot get claimed twice and another that has kept rising full steam ahead. Surprisingly, it has been Powerball with the claimed prizes, and Lotto Texas flirting with unleashing a beast!

That trend continued August 24th, 2019. Now, $18 million doesn’t seem that much compared to either Mega Millions or Powerball (both reset at $40 million) but (a) this is the largest that Lotto Texas has been in a while and (b) you wouldn’t really turn down that money if you won it (be honest!). Powerball’s jackpot rose graciously to $60 million.

August is winding down. That means full-on school mode and hopefully cooler temperatures on the horizon. Will Lotto Texas and Powerball follow suit with a cool down, or will the jackpot rise continue?
