Two Lotteries Come Sailing in on Christmas Eve

And so, we’ve finally arrived. Merry Christmas, everyone! Stay warm and be kind to one another. For anyone reading from the Southern Hemisphere, stay cool, stay hydrated, and be kind to one another.

Remember back when you were a kid and your parents told you to eat your vegetables before dessert? Strangely, Christmas Eve is somewhat like that. Christmas is the holiday of holidays, religious connotations aside. To ease our minds off the desire to open presents early, Christmas specials and movies seem to do the trick. Even better if those are marathons! This year, those who were looking for other Christmas entertainment took part in either Lotto Texas or Powerball, hoping for extremely good fortunes before Christmas. The problem is that these lotteries didn’t want to share.

Christmas Eve 2022 would be a night of two lotteries doing all they could to prevent their prizes from being won. No grand plays were needed to send the Lotto Texas jackpot to $24.5 million and Powerball’s to $201 million.
