May the Pattern Streaks Be With You

Love it or hate it, Star Wars has had lasting appeal. Movies, toys, spin-offs, cartoons and more have kept the franchise in our collective conscious for at least four decades.

What does Star Wars have to do with today’s post, you ask? Aside from the title being a (late) nod to Star Wars Day, lotteries, too, have that appeal. Striking it big just by picking the six winning numbers. What’s not to love about that? Except, it’s not as easy as it sounds, and lotteries have a way of thwarting players, and the most appealing method depends on a lottery’s mood.

On May 6, 2020, we saw that Pattern streaks were very appealing to both Lotto Texas and Powerball! As their flaming hot streaks continued, their jackpots rose to $15 million and $68 million, respectively.
