Kangaroos and Cheese

Such an odd name for a Lottery Binge post, but what happened on March 27, 2019 was odd. In a good way.

Lotto Texas continued its frolic through “double digit millions” country. Thanks to an Australia Play, it hopped towards a $12.75 million jackpot.

Along the way, the $768.4 million (formerly $750 million) prize in Powerball got kicked over, and a Wisconsinite walked away with the golden ticket! Powerball has since settled down to $40 million.

For the curious: a bit on Wisconsin cheese.

With the crazy-large Powerball jackpot claimed, it appears that March may go out like a lamb. Still, $40 million is nothing to sneeze at, and Lotto Texas is going strong. We’ll have to wait until Saturday’s drawing to see if either Pattern makes an encore.
