Sweet Sixteenth’s Revenge

Today’s B-movie title is brought to you by the Lotto Texas and Powerball drawings of October 23rd, 2019.

Lotteries are well aware that humans hunt for them. Once caught, they have no choice but to give up their prizes. The humans celebrate with lavish (early) retirement parties and the lotteries reset. Capture is inevitable, “But why make it easy for them?” they think.

This is where the bag of tricks come out and the players get thwarted. The method employed Wednesday night was a callback to a very recent date. Lotto Texas ascended to $7 million and Powerball sat high and dry at $130 million up for grabs.
