Revenge of the First of July

July 1st, obviously, is the first day of July. This year, it took on another meaning in the lottery world. It was on July 8, 2020, that it came back with a vengeance in both Lotto Texas and Powerball. In fact, it completely overtook the former. The end result was a jackpot boost to $25.5 million and $79 million, respectively.
