The Big Combination Spectacle

It’s that time of year again! Summer isn’t just a time of hot weather and long vacations. It’s full of spectacle, too. Big budget movies and televised talent shows (live, even!) beat reruns for sure. With no winners for either Lotto Texas or Powerball May 23rd, and with smaller jackpots to boot, a quiet night would’ve been expected. Of course, these lotteries had other plans. The biggest spectacle of the evening was with the repeating Combinations, especially those of the Three-Number persuasion.

Its debut was sometime this decade. Nothing special right? Well, this Combination has played not once, but twice before. After making its debut March 22nd, 2017, it previously played not too long ago. This was back on March 10th, 2018.
