Saturday Leftovers and then Some

Leftovers don’t have to be cold and tasteless. Sometimes when they’re reheated and a little extra kick is added, they taste even better!

April 10, 2018 was a night much like this past Saturday’s. For one, the prizes for Lotto Texas and Powerball rose once more, now at $15.75 million and $101 million, respectively. Not only that, but both Patterns made an encore and one was part of a playback package!

Could the Australia Play start a Pattern streak in Lotto Texas? Will the jackpots in both lotteries continue to ascend?
