Streak to Go Upward

Even though summer vacation is (almost) over, it’s still summer. Fall doesn’t arrive until September 22nd, and it’s still hot outside. Maybe not hot enough to cook eggs on the sidewalk, but chances are you’re still seeking shade or a cold drink when you’re outside. You’re still swearing under your breath (or out loud; we won’t judge) when the weatherman says it’s going to get even hotter.

Rising jackpots are nicer than 100-degree (Fahrenheit), 90% humidity days, anyway. Even better when one of those jackpots is now worth a quarter of a billion dollars!

August 11, 2021 was a good night for Lotto Texas and Powerball. Strong showings from both lotteries sent their respective jackpots to $10.75 million and $250 million.
