Dorian, Dorian, Dorian. This beast of a storm has devastated The Bahamas and is making a beeline for the Carolinas. Please keep those affected and in the current path of the storm in your thoughts.

A Monster Prevention Task Force was deployed in Powerball September 4, 2019. It was nearly three weeks ago that the Powerball prize had been won. To think that the prize would be won again, and so soon, was unexpected. Thanks to some New York Charm, the jackpot reset to $40 million.

Lotto Texas continued its summer-long jackpot high with a jackpot that climbed to $19.75 million. How often do you see the Lotto Texas prize be close to half that of Powerball?

Three-Number Combination(s)

A jackpot being cut down to size didn’t make for a good mood for repeating Three-Number Combinations.

Powerball has nowhere to go but up, and Lotto Texas continues its climb upward. Both lotteries saw encores for their most common Patterns, and it’ll be interesting if either one of them goes for the three-peat Saturday. The one thing on everyone’s minds is that Lotto Texas jackpot. Will it cross the $20 million mark or will it, too, be brought back down to Earth?
