The {4-1-1} on the Playback

Today’s post is going to start with a fun fact about July 11th. In the U.S., it’s National 7-11 Day. The “holiday” is commemorated by the convenience stores offering free small Slurpees. In lieu of these drinks, Lotto Texas and Powerball offered rising jackpots of $10.25 million and $100 million, respectively. With Powerball inching closer to “insanely large jackpot” territory (Mega Millions is already there), things got sweeter when after so many instances of coming close, a playback finally occurred.

Neither the {4-1-1} nor {3-2-1} Patterns are commonly seen. Will either of them see an encore Saturday night? Could another playback take place?
