Lotto Texas and Powerball’s Attention-Grabbing Patterns

The biggest story of Lottery Binge this summer has been Mega Millions. This lottery’s grand prize has soared into the stratosphere and is close to half a billion, yes billion dollars! Even though Mega Millions has had the lion’s share of buzzworthy news, Lotto Texas and Powerball are not down for the count. After July 21st, Powerball is feeling the urge to rise, and its jackpot is now $147 million. Lotto Texas isn’t likely to see a prize that large anytime soon ($12.25 million ain’t too shabby), but it had its own way of generating buzz—throwing a rarely-played Pattern into the ring.
