A Streak of Playbacks

Lotto Texas is like the wimpy kid going up against the larger kids in a competition. He may not be the biggest, the strongest, or the fastest, but he can use his wits and come out on top. Compared to Powerball and Mega Millions, Lotto Texas has a “wimpy” jackpot – $90 million and $306 million, respectively, vs. $9.5 million*. Yet, Lotto Texas can generate its own hype. July 7th saw the fourth drawing in a row where a playback happened. That is, both the Pattern and Specific Order played together on a previous date. Interestingly, Powerball hasn’t had one in a while, although it did come close.

*$9.5 million is nothing to sneeze at.
