Number Pastures

April 24, 2019 marked the end of the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern streak in Powerball. It also marked the end of a short break from the madness brought about by said streak and an exact spread in Lotto Texas. Although not nearly as wild as what happened last week, Wednesday night was far from a snoozer. For starters, the night had its fill of repeating Combinations of both the Three-Number and Four-Number kind.

If you love crazy-high jackpots (we know you do!), Powerball is on its way to a $166 million grand prize Saturday night. Lotto Texas kept its cool, easing upwards to $5.75 million.

The {3-2-1} Pattern is fond of encores, and the {3-1-1-1} Pattern had dipped its toes in the encore pool from time to time. Encores or no, Lotto Texas and Powerball look to finish the month on a strong note. Will someone walk away with a grand prize Saturday night, or will May start to look like “crazy-large jackpot” territory?
