The End of the Summer High

And so, it ended.

After a five-month streak, Lotto Texas  came down from its high September 25, 2019. How fitting that this happened in the first drawing of the season! As is protocol, the prize receded to $5 million.

On the other side of the spectrum, Powerball didn’t see anyone claim the grand prize. A visit from a very uncommon Pattern sent the jackpot climbing quietly for $50 million.

So, it looks like there won’t be any crazy-large jackpots to end September. There’s still one drawing left, and Lotto Texas is still in the grip of a Pattern streak. It remains to be seen if the streak holds Saturday night. As for Powerball, a {4-1-1} encore isn’t likely, but stranger things have happened!
