Lotto Texas and Powerball Flee the Heat

You know it’s summer, or close to it, when it’s so hot outside you need to lower the car windows to let all the heat escape! When it’s that hot, the best remedies tend to be a dip in the pool, grabbing a snow cone or two, or staying put, giving glory to the wonders of air conditioning.

June 8th was so hot that Lotto Texas and Powerball didn’t exert themselves much. However, “taking it easy” did not mean “lazy” with these two! Both lotteries played their most-common Patterns. This “safe” play sent the grand prizes to $7.5 million and $66 million, respectively.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Powerball took a page out of this past Wednesday’s drawing and took a break from the repeating Three-Number Combinations.

Given that both Lotto Texas and Powerball saw their most common Patterns, we’ll have to see if Wednesday will feature an encore from either one. After all, part of how the {3-2-1} and {2-1-1-1-1} Patterns became so common in their respective lotteries is due to Pattern streaks! Encores are the steppingstone.
