Underneath the Uncommon Pattern and Encore

With no one getting all six numbers correct in either Lotto Texas or Powerball, the jackpots have now gone up to $6.75 million and $121 million, respectively. What with a Pattern streak in Lotto Texas shattered, then that means the night was uneventful, right? Not at all! In contrast to the more obvious shows of grandiosity as of late, the excitement was subtler June 9, 2018.
