Springtime Lotto Rush

What a month it’s been so far! Since March started, we have yet to see anyone win the grand prize in either Lotto Texas or Powerball. And, after what happened March 13th, both prizes eluded lotto players all over.

Lotto Texas had a rowdy night, what with its Pattern encore and $10.25 million prize. Powerball, meanwhile, continued onward with its jackpot high, with a prize now at a staggering $495 million!

Powerball will most certainly get past that half-billion-dollar threshold going into Saturday’s drawing. Lotto Texas kept its momentum going with a {4-2} Pattern encore and although a {4-2} Pattern three-peat isn’t likely, stranger things have happened. Will anyone walk away with either of the grand prizes or will the lotteries continue their jackpot highs?
