Of Shattered Streaks and Jackpot Beasts

Lotto Texas had some of the biggest upsets this past Saturday night. The {3-2-1} Pattern, having already played three times in a row, did not go on to a fourth appearance. With the King of Lotto Texas Patterns knocked off the throne, the prize rose to a respectable $6.5 million.

Meanwhile, Powerball found itself getting acquainted with not just a Pattern encore, but a General Order encore as well! The beast of a jackpot continued its rampage unabated. It happily welcomed a growth spurt and shot up to $325 million.

What all was responsible for the madness that took place May 25, 2019?

With May nearly done, Powerball has the jackpot momentum going for it. Wednesday will be the last drawing of the month for both lotteries and it remains to be seen if Powerball will surge onward to June or if the prize will be claimed. The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern is fond of Pattern streaks, or at least trying to establish them, so a three-peat is something we’ll need to keep an eye on.

Lotto Texas, the ever-so-quiet one, can’t be counted out. The prize is nothing to sneeze at and it’s possible that the {4-2} Pattern may well surprise us!
