Lottery Nostalgia Bombs

Next to Christmas and your birthday, summer most likely rounded out your top three of “Best Time of the Year”. Summer meant several weeks away from teachers and homework, days filled with games, swimming, popsicles, and checking out the latest movies.

One summer, you’re an eight-year-old playing video games. Flash forward twenty years and your summers are spent toiling away in the working world. Summer vacation then becomes a couple of weeks you have to time just right, provided you have at least that much time saved up. Even if you happen to be a kid at heart, those nostalgia pangs come rushing in, and summer, a wondrous time when everything was once new, is a peak time for it.

If it’s any consolation, at least you’re not a lottery. Lotteries are constantly bombarded with nostalgia, some more than others. This past Saturday night wasn’t any different! And yet, lotteries are tied to the present and future, too. The (then recent) numbers that played June 26, 2021 were responsible for the future jackpots of $6.5 million for Lotto Texas and $88 million for Powerball.

True, it’s hard to be nostalgic for something that happened a few weeks or a few years ago. How about something that happened exactly eleven years ago?!
