The Pattern Streak Double Strikedown

Lotto Texas and Powerball have acted like a playground clique these days. They play together, so it’s expected that they’ll copy each other, or even be in sync with each other now and again. Lately, both lotteries have been in the grip of streaks with their most common Patterns.

On May 9, 2020, the Pattern streaks came to an end. Both the {3-2-1} Pattern and the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern streaks were struck down with Australia Plays. That is, the Pattern, General Order (applicable to Powerball only) and the Specific Order were the same. This interesting turn of events kept the jackpots climbing. Lotto Texas rose to $15.25 million and Powerball rose to $77 million.

The Pattern streaks may be over, but the prizes continue their march ever upward. Will the jackpots continue to climb, or will at least one of them be struck down next week?
