2020: The Great and Terrible

There’s a light at the end of the tunnel. After some of the most gut-wrenching, devastating, and mind-boggling months in recent history, 2020 will be over in a matter of weeks. In the meantime, 2020 paid a visit to Lotto Texas and Powerball December 9th. This visitation was enough to edge out all the other years completely.

However, those who cheer for increasing jackpots will be happy to hear that the prizes did indeed increase! Lotto Texas grew to a respectable $5.75 million and Powerball ascended to $277 million.
