Encores! Encores Everywhere!

With no grand prize winner for either Lotto Texas or Powerball, their respective jackpots are now $15.25 million and $223 million. Although Powerball has officially joined the Mile-High Jackpot Club, the biggest draw of the evening was in the Patterns. Pattern-wise, August 4th was just like August 1st for both lotteries. In fact, Lotto Texas saw a three-peat and then some!

An Encore and Crazy-Large Jackpot Fever

Slow and Steady (Pattern) Ends the Month

What a month it was! From holidays to a jackpot that was worth over half a billion dollars, July was festive. What with those Back to School ads and the calendar, July 31st means only a few weeks left of summer. For Mega Millions, it meant another night of recuperation. Even without a big show, $50 million does go a long way.

The biggest event of the evening was the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern encore. With winning numbers 12, 15, 35, 64, 69, and MB 9, this Pattern has now played 167 times.

Could Mega Millions stir up a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern three-peat Friday night, or will it continue to chill out?

Coming Down From a (Jackpot) High

Mega Millions came back down to Earth in the July 27th drawing. With no grand prize winner, the jackpot inched up to $45 million. This (understandably) quiet night saw an appearance from the lottery’s most commonly seen Pattern.

Lotto Texas and Powerball’s Attention-Grabbing Patterns

The biggest story of Lottery Binge this summer has been Mega Millions. This lottery’s grand prize has soared into the stratosphere and is close to half a billion, yes billion dollars! Even though Mega Millions has had the lion’s share of buzzworthy news, Lotto Texas and Powerball are not down for the count. After July 21st, Powerball is feeling the urge to rise, and its jackpot is now $147 million. Lotto Texas isn’t likely to see a prize that large anytime soon ($12.25 million ain’t too shabby), but it had its own way of generating buzz—throwing a rarely-played Pattern into the ring.
