Ending the Year With Flare

Happy New Year! As the world greeted 2017 with firecrackers, fireworks, and sparklers, Lotto Texas and Powerball said goodbye to 2016 with fireworks of their own.

Lotto Texas

Lotto Texas saw an encore of the {3-2-1} Pattern in the New Year’s Eve drawing. The 734th appearance was thanks to winning numbers 2, 5, 11, 33, 39, and 51.
