Three-peats and Terrors

Monsters of the “number-y” kind were unleashed upon the world May 22nd, 2019. Powerball’s beast of a jackpot expanded to $308 million, probably inspired by sister Mega Millions. Lotto Texas, ever respectable, sprouted upward to $6.25 million. That ever respectable lottery was responsible for a few terrors of its own.

Four-Number Combination(s)

With a three-peat and a similar spread, you’d think Lotto Texas would have its fill. There was enough room for three repeating Four-Number Combinations!
