Lotto Texas and Powerball in “Playback and a Half”

The pumpkin-flavored goodies have been pushed aside for peppermint. Strange yet enticing light displays offer brightness as the days continue to grow shorter or in some cases, disappear. Stores are packed with people looking for those special gifts, or the equipment to make the gifts. Truly we are in the Christmas season, the “mas” in “Hallowthankmas”!

Lotto Texas and Powerball aren’t able to shop for gifts, but they can offer them. Twice a week they have the power to grant at least one person with the gift of (early) retirement. Should no one win the ultimate prize, well, the gift gets ever grander.

Speaking of “grand”, Lotto Texas had the mind to offer up a playback this past Wednesday. The fact that it was also an encore makes it even grander! This was enough to push the jackpot to $11 million. Powerball saw no such encore, but the prize did rise to $130 million.
