Jumble Spoiler – 07/22/20

Powerball, Mega Millions: How much states spend on lottery tickets ...

Visual Description:  Convenience store speculation.

UNEEV  =  VENUE,  FEYBE  =  BEEFY,  INCIOC  =  ICONIC,  SNIVHA  =  VANISH   —   Giving us:  UEBYCCANH

Clue/Question:  She didn’t plan on purchasing a lottery ticket, but did it – – –

Florida Lottery Player Wins $1 Million Prize Jackpot!

Answer: BUY CHANCE

(Excellent stinky pun, using one of the boy’s more reliable Jumble homophones.  Jeff likes to portray himself as this Indie, hip kind of guy, always sporting the Wilco tee shirts.  But, in reality, he’s secretly a big NSYNC fan.  He just loves *By Buy Bye*!  He’ll try to say that they’re Sydney’s favorite boy band, from her kiddie days, but I just think he has a little thing for Lance Bass.  LOL!

All of today’s clue words were reliable old re-runs.  Three of the jumbles came up as new for me, but we’ve most definitely seen “snivha” before.  No stumpers for me today.  The answer letter layout was a fine nine letter jumble.  It was cryptic enough.  The quotation marks in the final answer slots were the big give away.

Nice convenience store cartoon.  Stereotypical looking clerk.  Great attention to detail, with the wall of SODA and WATER, the bags and canisters of chips, the lottery machine and the security camera.  That Jumble Jackpot is really up there!  Ya know, word-on-the-street has it that Hoyt is actually a big Backstreet Boys fan too!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
