Night of the Living “3”

June 12th, 2019 was taken over by the number 3! The little guy made himself at home in both Lotto Texas and Powerball, whether by showing up alone, as part of another number, or by other means. Means that were tied to a Combination, perhaps?

The invasion left both lotteries without a grand prize winner. Their respective jackpots rose to $7.75 million and $79 million.
