It’s a Lottery Kind of Christmas

Christmas 2019 was a doubleheader lottery-wise! Lotto Texas and Powerball may not have the power to bring Peace on Earth and Goodwill To Men ™, but they had the power to bring merriment and hope. Winning millions of dollars would make an excellent gift at anytime of the year. But, as is the paradoxical nature of lotteries, Lotto Texas and Powerball brought great joy…and great sorrow. With no grand prizes claimed in either lottery, their respective jackpots rose to $14.75 million and $200 million.
