Roasted Playback & Encore Gravy

Thanksgiving Eve is undoubtedly one of the busiest days of the year. Be it braving the roads (or skies) or making that last-minute trip to the store, there’s hardly a dull moment!

Lotto Texas and Powerball were making their own Thanksgiving preparations. They spent the evening roasting up a Pattern playback, with a Pattern encore for dressing. The side dishes were repeating Four-and Three-Number Combinations, and for dessert, rising jackpots. Lotto Texas offered up a jackpot that rose to $9.75 million while Powerball’s was a prize that climbed to $110 million.
