The Ghost of December 11th

Quick! What comes to mind when you see December 18th, other than “There’s only one week until Christmas”? Hopefully you’ve at least started your Christmas prep by now! If you haven’t, well, best get to it.

While (some of) you were tempting fate, Lotto Texas and Powerball prepared by boosting their jackpots to $13.5 million and $171 million, respectively. This past Wednesday was almost exactly like December 11th, save for the numbers that played of course. One of these lotteries saw a playback, while the other came close. Which one saw what?
