Lottery Party Mix: 2020 Edition

Chex Party Mix is one of many Christmastime snacks. For those unfamiliar with Chex, it’s a cereal from the U.S. Like Rice Krispies, it appears to be more popular as the key ingredient of a snack rather than part of a complete breakfast.

Now, a party mix wouldn’t be a mix without other goodies, would it? Chex can be mixed with all sorts of things, like pretzels, marshmallows, peanuts. It’s your choice what goes into the mix!

Lotto Texas and Powerball made their own party mix December 19, 2020. One lottery saw a Pattern three-peat, and another saw a similar spread. Throw in repeating Three and Four-Number Combinations and well sir, you got yourself a lottery party mix! To make it sweeter, both Lotto Texas and Powerball received a boost in their jackpots. The respective prizes increased to $6.5 million and $321 million.
