Blazing Hot Lotteries

Summer is coming, which means rising temperatures are ahead. Although we like to kick things off with Memorial Day, the true start of the season is on the Summer Solstice, which falls on either June 20th or the 21st in the Northern Hemisphere. And yet, nature cares not about what the calendar says. Blazing hot temperatures can and have occurred before the Solstice!

It was June 16, 2021 that Lotto Texas and Powerball got caught in a heatwave. Nothing record-breaking (yet?), but like the temperatures outside, the jackpots rose. Lotto Texas’s jackpot climbed to $5.75 million, and Powerball’s ascended to $52 million.
