The Devilishly Delicious Delirium of a Double Encore

There are no words to describe what happened the night of June 3, 2020. Powerball’s jackpot was brought down to size by a lone winner from West Virginia. This, along with encores from both Lotto Texas’s Pattern and Specific Order, caused a disturbance the likes of which had never been seen before. Because the Lotto Texas jackpot rose to $19.5 million and the Powerball jackpot reset to $20 million, there is now only a $500,000 difference between them!

Four-Number Combinations

There were no repeating Four-Number Combinations Wednesday night. Perhaps having a jackpot that’s almost just as much as Powerball’s was too much for Lotto Texas, exciting thought it was.

Even after what happened this past Wednesday night, it isn’t likely that Lotto Texas’s jackpot will surpass Powerball’s. Getting back to the present, it appears that both lotteries played their most commonly seen Patterns. Will Saturday night produce encores for either the {3-2-1} Pattern or the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern?
