Echoes Through the (Lottery) Void

Ever have those moments where it feels like you’re shouting into a void? That feeling when the only people who hear you are actually your own echoes?

There were echoes and both Lotto Texas and Powerball this past Wednesday. One lottery’s echoes reflected back on the Christmas/New Year’s timeframe, or thereabouts, and its jackpot rose to $6 million. The other had a monstrous jackpot that was slain by an intrepid player from Florida with the combined powers of a Pattern streak and a playback. Naturally, its jackpot reset to $40 million.

Even with the Powerball jackpot claimed, February doesn’t look to be starting off quietly. The Super Bowl is this weekend: a perfect opportunity for the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern streak to hold up! Will there also be room for another playback (or two)?
