The Golden Road to Millions

The lottery is a sport of a different kind. No hours of training are necessary, and you don’t need to stick to a strict diet as you would with other sports. All you need is a few dollars, a ticket, picking six numbers, and a strategy. Pick the right ones, and you’ll soar into a (hopefully) less stressful life.

Lotteries themselves, like Lotto Texas and Powerball, take part in games of their own. A favorite of theirs is playing “Keep Away”, also known as, “How to drive players mad whilst increasing the jackpot?” On July 31, 2021, they succeeded in giving their jackpots a boost. Lotto Texas soared to $9 million, and Powerball leapt past the $200 million line to $211 million.
