Sturdy Jackpot Chains

A chain is no stronger than its weakest link, as they say. Looking at the results of August 8, 2020, the chains of Lotto Texas and Powerball held strong. So strong, in fact, that not one player could break the chains and free the jackpots. Lotto Texas, still on its high, settled on $31.25 million and Powerball climbed to $169 million.
