Of Lotteries and Their Need for Attention

Ah, Lotto Texas. This lottery has a reputation for being the calm and collected one. Prizes aren’t nearly as large as the ones for Powerball or Mega Millions, but they’re certainly nothing to turn your nose up at! Earlier this year, Lotto Texas had a nearly five-month long streak where the prize climbed to nearly $24 million.

The October 12, 2019 drawing showed signs that this lottery isn’t so above it all in the attention seeking department. A three-peat bumped the jackpot up to $6.25 million. Meanwhile, Powerball rose quietly to $100 million.
