The Future is {3-2-1}

Happy New Year, everyone! Some ways to start the new year include singing “Auld Lang Syne” (poorly), drinking, binge watching movies, watching the Rose Bowl, and playing lottery. Now, one of these things isn’t like the others. Having an opportunity to win millions of dollars on the very first day of a new year doesn’t happen on years that begin on Sunday, Monday, or Thursday.

New Year’s Day 2020 had two opportunities: Lotto Texas and Powerball. They kicked off the year by mostly keeping to themselves. This (mostly) quiet night saw the jackpots rise to $16.25 million in Lotto Texas and $237 million in Powerball.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

Lotto Texas began the new year the same way the old one ended: with the {3-2-1} Pattern. The Pattern encore was brought to you by 3, 4, 13, 19, 35, and 37.

Four-Number Combination(s)

Lotto Texas only had enough energy for the {3-2-1} Pattern encore, thus, no repeating Four-Number Combinations.

This Combination debuted October 17, 2015.

January is often seen as a “lull”. The Hallowthankmas season is over and it’ll be a while yet before Valentine’s Day. Will Lotto Texas and Powerball have a quiet month, or will this be a month of Pattern streaks and snowballing jackpots?
