Encores! Encores Everywhere!

With no grand prize winner for either Lotto Texas or Powerball, their respective jackpots are now $15.25 million and $223 million. Although Powerball has officially joined the Mile-High Jackpot Club, the biggest draw of the evening was in the Patterns. Pattern-wise, August 4th was just like August 1st for both lotteries. In fact, Lotto Texas saw a three-peat and then some!

Three-Number Combination(s)

Powerball didn’t see any repeating Three-Number Combinations.

Will the {3-2-1} Pattern/3 1 2 Specific Order play together again in Wednesday’s Lotto Texas drawing? Could Powerball see a three-peat with the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern?
