A shout out to a work colleague who gave me the idea for today’s post title!

To all you readers who didn’t know if I had a day job, you do now…

There are only two months left in the year. You know what that means, right? We’re talking about a mishmash of decorations, turkey vs. ham (turducken, even), looking for the best deals on gifts, and wondering if you’ve made it on the “Nice List”.

That’s right. It’s HallowThankmas time!

Lotto Texas and Powerball got into the holiday spirit. They took advantage of Halloween Eve, bounding about and keeping the players at arm’s length. This paid off, as the lotteries made like ghosts when the players got too close. The prizes rose to $7.5 million and $150 million, respectively.

There may not have been monster jackpots abound this Halloween, but there’s the rest of the holiday season! That’s more opportunities for Australia plays, encores, and yes, jackpot hikes. Will Lotto Texas and Powerball ride a winless streak into the new year?
