Jackpot Strong

Something extraordinary happened in the lottery world several months ago. Mega Millions, Powerball, and even Lotto Texas got in on growing massive jackpots. Recently, the Mega Millions jackpot was cut down to size and forced into an odd cycle of rising and resetting. Meanwhile, neither Lotto Texas nor Powerball faced any obstacles Saturday night, and boosted their respective jackpots to $36 million and $613 million.

Will Monday’s drawing mean more rising jackpots, or will at least one lottery be forced to reset?

If At First You Don’t Succeed…

“If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.”

We’ve all heard this saying. A bit cliché, but it drives the point home. When you fall, you got to get back up and give it another go. This saying also applies to a certain lottery that’s been stuck in a rut lately.

After watching the jackpot fall, then rise, and then fall again, Mega Millions was determined to get it rising again. And rise it did! Nothing, and no one, could stop the prize from jumping to $31 million.

Will the Mega Millions jackpot be stuck on the seesaw, or will Tuesday night be the night that the jackpot finally breaks free?

The Unrelenting Jackpot Streaks

Yes, folks, that’s jackpot streaks! In an odd twist of events, Mega Millions was forced to reset it jackpot once again this week. That left an opening for both Lotto Texas and Powerball to increase their jackpots even more Wednesday night. Lotto Texas managed to keep it classy with a jackpot that grew to $35.5 million. Meanwhile, Powerball went on a power trip on the way to $572 million.

Powerball’s jackpot may get more attention, but Lotto Texas’s prize is no small change! Will they see another rise in jackpot Saturday night, or will the reset come for them?

Slapped Back to Start

Perhaps we spoke too soon when we said that Mega Millions got out of the muck. Just as soon as the jackpot started rising, someone from Massachusetts came along and smacked it back down to $20 million!

Streaks Worth Preserving

Two kinds of streaks were present Saturday night: Pattern and jackpot. Lotto Texas, still in shock at how large the jackpot has grown, had two! Both the {3-2-1} Pattern and the $33.5 million jackpot proved that neither streak were going away anytime soon. Although Powerball didn’t see a Pattern streak, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern encore gave the jackpot a generous boost to $502 million.

While Mega Millions currently has the smallest jackpot, it won’t take much to overtake Lotto Texas for the #2 spot. There are two Lotto Texas/Powerball drawings before Tuesday. It may be that Mega Millions overtakes Lotto Texas, or even ends up having the largest jackpot! Everything now hinges on what those two lotteries have up their sleeves.

Grow, Grow, and Grow Some More

Roadblocks, setbacks, whatever you want to call them, are a fact of live. We’ve all had projects that didn’t go according to plan, or things that didn’t fall into place the way we wanted them to. For lotteries, it’s a bit more complicated. Sure, they want people to win their prizes, but not too soon. Take Lotto Texas and Powerball for example. According to them, two , three, or even four months is “too soon”.

As of the January 18, 2023 drawing, Mega Millions remained the smallest of the jackpots. Meanwhile, Lotto Texas and Powerball continued their “untouchable” jackpot streaks. As Lotto Texas, with a $33 million prize, wondered how it still had a larger jackpot than Mega Millions (for now), Powerball was pleased as punch having the largest prize at $473 million.

Stuck at the Starting Line

After taking a massive fall Friday night, Mega Millions was eager to get back in the game, so to speak. Unfortunately for this lottery, but fortunately for one New York player, that meant more bench time.

As if the title didn’t give it away, the jackpot remained at $20 million.
