Encore Mischief and a Pattern Streak Derailed

November was a quieter month than October, that’s for sure! Still, the month gifted us with healthy, robust jackpots. With no grand prize winners, the jackpots for Lotto Texas and Powerball are now $7 million and $183 million, respectively. For those of you out there who love Pattern streaks, Powerball obliged with its {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern. With five consecutive appearances, a six-peat was all but certain, right?

Not quite. November 28th saw the end of that Pattern streak. Meanwhile, Lotto Texas ended the month with a Pattern encore.

Pre-Thanksgiving Flashbacks

Christmas is right around the corner. With decorations, parties, and other festivities, no wonder it’s called the most wonderful time of the year! Now, if you’re the type who thinks, “November 27th is too early to think about Christmas!” you’re not alone.

Mega Millions thought so, too. Not only that, but the jackpot over there ballooned to $190 million.

‘Tis the (Lottery) Season!

Yet another Thanksgiving holiday is coming to an end, and we’ll all be back to the daily grind of work and school soon enough. As we say goodbye to one holiday, we welcome what may be, no, is the most popular holiday. Christmas!!!

Lotto Texas and Powerball provided pre-Christmas goodies in the form of rising jackpots. With no grand prize winners November 24th, their respective prizes rose to $6.75 million and $175 million. Powerball had another goody, but we’ll get to that in a moment.

Even though we’re now ankle deep in the holiday season, there’s still one week left in November. Will the month end with a long {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern streak in Powerball? Could {3-2-1} in Lotto Texas get in on the Pattern streak action?

The 23rd Day Was for Resting

Friday is perhaps the most cherished day of the week. That, no doubt, is probably due to it being the end of the work week for many.

November 23rd wasn’t just any Friday, though. It was Black Friday! For those who thought it was still too early to think about Christmas, there was college football, movies, and leftovers. Mega Millions observed a tradition that tends to get overlooked in this helter-skelter world. Other than the grand prize climbing to a robust $172 million, this lottery opted to rest.

“Rest” has been the theme for Mega Millions this month, and Black Friday wasn’t much different. There’s only one week left in November. With the Christmas holiday season started, it’s possible that something big may be on the horizon. Could a {2-2-1-1} Pattern encore be in store Tuesday night?

The Playback and Encore Side Dishes

Whether you’re in Bermuda shorts in Honolulu or wearing long johns in New York City, Lottery Binge wants to wish all our U.S. readers a Happy Thanksgiving! If you don’t fill up on turkey, at least fill up on the desserts!

Thanksgiving Eve can be one of the most frustrating days of the year. Whether trapped in traffic or rushing to the store for last-minute items, frustration levels may rival those of the big day itself! Thankfully, neither Lotto Texas nor Powerball get stuck in traffic. Nor do they need to bake in an oven for several hours.

November 21st continued the “busy-ness” of Lotto Texas and Powerball. They more than proved that repeating Four and Three-Number Combinations are just one way to generate excitement. Jackpots that rose to $6.5 million and $155 million, respectively, were another. Lotto Texas took the playback route, whereas Powerball took the Path of the Pattern Encore.

With Thanksgiving coming early this year, it’s easy to forget that there’s still another week left. The start of the Christmas shopping season being the day after doesn’t help. The grand prizes for Lotto Texas and Powerball will make excellent Christmas presents for who ever wins them! Will these grand prizes rise again Saturday night with another Lotto Texas playback or a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern five-peat in Powerball?

The 2018 Mega Millions Pre-Thanksgiving Special

Thanksgiving is upon us!

(Remember Thanksgiving?)

When we think of this holiday, we think of turkey, potatoes, pie, football, and of course, Mega Millions! Think about that last one for a second. Mega Millions drawings take place before, and right after, Thanksgiving. It’s obviously associated with the holiday!

Mega Millions didn’t take the quiet route November 20th. An appearance of its most common Pattern, among other things, propelled the grand prize to $155 million.

November 17th belonged to Powerball, thanks to a Pattern three-peat! This helped propel the grand prize to $139 million.

Thanksgiving is fast approaching, and what better than Lotto Texas and Powerball to kick off the long weekend? Will the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern go for the “four-peat” Wednesday night, and will Lotto Texas continue to have fun with uncommonly-seen Patterns?

Playback Says “What?”

So far this month, Mega Millions has been the quiet lottery. Meanwhile, Lotto Texas and Powerball have had their fill with Pattern streaks and repeating Combinations of the Three and Four-Number kind. November 16th continued the trend, but this past Friday wasn’t too serene. Not only did the grand prize climb to $139 million, it got a boost from a little phenomenon called the playback!

When was that special day that the Pattern, General Order, and Specific Order were last seen together?

Mega Millions will probably keep to the Thanksgiving spirit and be as quiet as it has been throughout the month. Still, this lottery is known to throw in a surprise or two whenever a holiday is right around the corner. Could the {3-2-1} Pattern pull a zinger and go for an encore Tuesday night?

When (Repeating) Combinations Attack

Lotto Texas and Powerball couldn’t be any more different than Mega Millions! As Mega Millions continued its rest, the two lotteries joined forces November 14th. How, you wonder? With the power of repeating Combinations, of course! Neither lottery saw a grand prize winner, and the jackpots rose to a respectable $6 million and $124 million, respectively. As is the nature of the lottery beast, it wasn’t just repeating Combinations we found under the hood!

The momentum for Powerball and Lotto Texas continues as we head into Saturday. Could Powerball’s {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern get a Pattern streak going, and could the {3-3} Pattern in Lotto Texas do the “unthinkable” and make an encore?

 

Mega Millions’s Slow Climb Upwards

We’re halfway through November, and Mega Millions was more than happy to let Powerball and Lotto Texas vie for attention! November 13th was another quiet evening. With no grand prize winner, the jackpot rose to $122 million. A far cry from the beast we saw last month, but certainly nothing to scoff at!
