The Patterns Take It Up a Notch

June 20, 2018 was an important date, to be sure! One, it was the last official day of spring, or autumn for those of you reading from the Southern Hemisphere. Lotto Texas said “Hello” to the new season with an increase in the jackpot, now at $7.5 million. Meanwhile, Powerball had its $151 million jackpot won by a single ticket sold in Oregon.  Despite their separate paths, both lotteries saw some common Patterns.
