A Copycat and a Roaring Sheep

Lotto Texas and Powerball had the honor of closing out March, and what it a month it was! The biggest event was of course the six consecutive appearances of the {3-2-1} Pattern in Lotto Texas. The streak came to an end March 31st. And although one streak ended, another may be in the works.
