Pushing Ever Upward

Lotteries are resilient beasts. Little if anything can stop them and their jackpots grow wherever there’s an open space. Only having at least one player choose all six winning numbers acts as a wall to uncontrollable growth.

April 25, 2020 was a testament to that resilient nature. With no grand prize winners, the jackpots naturally continued their climb. Lotto Texas, ever dignified, rose to $13.25 million. Meanwhile, Powerball rose to $43 million.
