Bouncing Around and Dragging Along

October 7, 2020 was a night of contrasts to be sure! Both Lotto Texas and Powerball saw their jackpots rise, but they took vastly different approaches. Although still sore, Lotto Texas made peace with the fact that it’ll take longer to reach $47 million again and lived with a jackpot that inched up to $5.5 million. Powerball, on the other hand, was passing out repeating Three-Number Combinations like they were candy! The jackpot over there saw a huge increase from $52 million to $62 million.
