The Golden Lottery Spectacle

After two weeks of triumph, defeat, and spectacle, the Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo have come to an end. With the flame extinguished, it’s back to life in the “new normal”. That is until next year, when Beijing hosts the 2022 Winter Olympic Games and Paris hosts the Summer 2024 games. Hopefully by next summer the crowds will return!

Meanwhile, the lotteries put on a grand display of their own. August 7, 2021 was when the {3-2-1} Pattern showed off for the third time in Lotto Texas, and an Australia Play ruled Powerball. More importantly, both lotteries saw a boon in their jackpots. Lotto Texas hit the $10 million checkpoint, and Powerball ascended to $241 million.
