Going In for the Encore

One thing about the weekend is that Friday night is just the practice round, right? Friday nights are party nights, sure, but not like Saturday nights. After all, that’s the true heart of the weekend, isn’t it?

Well, it turned out not to be the case this time in Lottery World.

February 9th and 10th were far different beasts. For those of you who follow Mega Millions, you were certainly in for a treat this past Friday. As for Lotto Texas and Powerball? Saturday night was much quieter. The big events of the evening were a Pattern encore and a repeating Combination.
