The Ongoing Class Struggle of Lottery Society

Eight months, or close to it. That’s how long it’s been since someone claimed the grand prize in Lotto Texas. A lot sure has happened in eight months. One thing that didn’t change September 9, 2020 was, believe or not, the state of Lotto Texas. Having found itself, it firmly planted roots and continued to grow its jackpot. With no one picking the six numbers, the prize climbed to $40.5 million.

Powerball chuckled. Sure, Lotto Texas’s jackpot grew, but its jackpot did as well. With a jackpot that ascended to $85 million, the gap between the lotteries widened.
