The End-of-April Encore Doubleheader

In yesterday’s blog post, we analyzed the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern encore in Mega Millions, and the resulting aftermath. Apparently, the urge to end the month with an encore, and with the most commonly seen Pattern no less, was contagious! Not only did Lotto Texas and Powerball end April with Pattern encores, one such encore was a three-peat! With no grand prize winners to be had, the jackpot for Lotto Texas rose to $13.75 million. Powerball, now used to its “slimmer” state, saw its jackpot rise to $51 million.
