The Primetime Combination Smash

As the countdown to Super Bowl LVI (56 for those unacquainted with Roman numerals) continued, another game took place Saturday night. Lotto Texas and Powerball changed up their game plans once again, resulting in yet another personality swap! Lotto Texas returned to its ever-graceful self, and with that came a jackpot that rose to $9.5 million. Meanwhile, Powerball’s devil-may-care attitude with repeating Three-Number Combinations pushed the jackpot to $183 million.
