How the Prize was Won

The first full week of 2021 has been one for the history books, to put it mildly. Lottery-wise, hundreds of millions of dollars are now up for grabs in both Mega Millions and Powerball. Meanwhile, Lotto Texas continues to retain its dignity. And, on January 9, 2021, we saw the first lottery win of the year!

The lottery win, of course, was in Lotto Texas. Come on, now. If you won $7.75 million, would you turn it down? Anyway, with its prize won, the jackpot was reset to $5 million. Powerball crossed over into the ultra-rich territory. As the jackpot evaded players yet again, it grew to $550 million.
