The One Where a Playback Happened

This past year has been a host of the unexpected at Lottery Trend headquarters:

And yet, there’s one phenomenon that outshines them all: the playback. Playbacks occur when the Pattern, General Order (Powerball and Mega Millions only), and Specific Order played together on a previous date. Unlike the Pattern associated with an Australia Play, a “Playback Pattern” can have more than one associated General Order (if applicable) and Specific Order.

Wednesday night saw at least one playback.
