Wednesday is generally a “No big thrills” kind of day in the “real world”. For many people, it’s two more days until Friday, and hey, it’s five o’ clock somewhere, right? There’s still the matter of Wednesday night lotteries, however. On March 14, 2018, both Lotto Texas and Powerball saw their most commonly played Patterns. Lotto Texas also got an extra boost or two.
