The Playback and Encore Side Dishes

Whether you’re in Bermuda shorts in Honolulu or wearing long johns in New York City, Lottery Binge wants to wish all our U.S. readers a Happy Thanksgiving! If you don’t fill up on turkey, at least fill up on the desserts!

Thanksgiving Eve can be one of the most frustrating days of the year. Whether trapped in traffic or rushing to the store for last-minute items, frustration levels may rival those of the big day itself! Thankfully, neither Lotto Texas nor Powerball get stuck in traffic. Nor do they need to bake in an oven for several hours.

November 21st continued the “busy-ness” of Lotto Texas and Powerball. They more than proved that repeating Four and Three-Number Combinations are just one way to generate excitement. Jackpots that rose to $6.5 million and $155 million, respectively, were another. Lotto Texas took the playback route, whereas Powerball took the Path of the Pattern Encore.
