The Encore Zone

The past, good or bad, isn’t forgotten that easily. If it were, then we wouldn’t hold grudges and reboots, love ‘em or hate ‘em, wouldn’t be around every corner! But, what about something more recent? It’s too early to be reminiscent of what happened over the weekend, but it looks like both Lotto Texas and Powerball caught a case of nostalgia!

July 10th was generous to Pattern streak and encore lovers. Another carryover was a lack of grand prize winners. Lotto Texas rose to a respectable $11 million while Powerball climbed to $194 million.

Looks like Streak Fever may be in the air. Both lotteries played their most common Patterns, and both are notorious for Pattern streaks! Powerball doesn’t have one yet, so we’ll need to see if a Pattern three-peat happens Saturday night. As for Lotto Texas, will its Pattern streak continue?
