Watch Out for the Quiet One

We’ve all been warned at some time or another to “Beware the quiet ones.” Based on our analysis, the resident “quiet one” is Lotto Texas. Although its prizes don’t achieve the monstrous sizes we’ve seen in Mega Millions and Powerball, it presents itself in a respectable manner. After all, claiming a $12.5 million prize is nothing to be down about.

January 12th, 2019 was the night that, in an uncharacteristic moment, it was unrestrained. In fact, Lotto Texas ruled the night! There was more—far more—to Saturday night than someone winning. Describing it here in the introduction would be a grave injustice!

Keeping up with this flip-flopped scenario, Powerball was the one keeping to itself. Its prize rose to $112 million with little fanfare.

Is another repeating Five-Number Combinations on the horizon for Lotto Texas Wednesday night? Could either it or Powerball see a Pattern encore?

Far from the Madness

This past Saturday and January 9th, 2019 were worlds apart. On Saturday, we saw repeating Four-Number Combinations in both Lotto Texas and Powerball. Wednesday…was not like that. The lotteries took a subtler approach; no encores, no fireworks. Their respective grand prizes rose quietly to $12.5 million and $96 million. But, as (comparatively) quiet as things were, Wednesday night was far from boring!

If Saturday night was anything to go by, 2019 looks to be an interesting year in the lottery world! Will either the {2-2-1-1} Pattern or the {3-2-1} Pattern make an appearance Wednesday night? Could another Four-Number Combination rear its head in Powerball?

New Year’s Delicacies: Lotto Texas and Powerball Edition

Gift of the Powerball

Lotto Texas and Powerball were like the Northern and Southern Hemispheres December 26th. They were polar opposites (no pun intended)! While it’s winter in New York City, it’s summertime in Sydney.

Speaking of New York City, Powerball gifted one player from Brooklyn with $298.4 million! That brought the jackpot down to a more “respectable” $40 million. Lotto Texas, ever the classy one, saw its jackpot ease on upward to $10 million.

Here in the Northern Hemisphere, the days are getting shorter. If going to work in the dark and/or coming home in the dark isn’t enough, it’s getting colder. Thankfully, the Christmas lights, the hot drinks, and the lottery are just a few things that make us forget about the cold!

With twenty days before Christmas, there were no grand prize winners for either Lotto Texas or Powerball. December 5th saw the jackpots rise to $7.5 million and $217 million, respectively.

With no grand prize winners, Powerball rose to $200 million dollars, and Lotto Texas kept it classy with $7.25 million. In fact, it was classy Lotto Texas that saw a three-peat and then some.

The rising jackpots in Lotto Texas and Powerball are something to look out for. This may spell something monumental as we get closer to Christmas. Will the rising jackpot momentum hold Wednesday night? Could December be a month of Pattern streaks?





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.
