Lotteries on the Edge of Spring

At long last, winter is starting to wind down. The tug of war between warmer and colder weather will continue for a little while, but warmth will prevail. The days will get longer, the flowers will bloom, and then the countdown to summer will begin. Before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s focus on the present, or in this case, the recent past!

According to the calendar, March 19, 2022 was the last day of winter this year, and Lotto Texas and Powerball had the honor of hosting the last drawings of the season. One lottery had a run-in with a playback, and the other came close. Playback or no, Lotto Texas and Powerball saw their respective jackpots grow to $6.5 million and $156 million.
