Return of the Playback

For Lotto Texas, the month of April ended with a playback. And wouldn’t you know it? A playback happened again on May 2nd! Which Pattern-Specific Order pair saw this phenomenon? Well, it wasn’t the {2-2-2} Pattern/2 2 2 Specific Order. That would’ve been an Australia Play, a.k.a. “The Ultimate Playback”.

Powerball avoided the allure of not only the playback, but grand plays in general. It found normalcy to be quite alluring.
