The Fight for Dominance

Today’s title isn’t something you’d expect for a Lottery Binge post. But you see, things haven’t been exactly “normal” in the lottery world these past few weeks. We had a lottery that’s known for its respectability (rhymes with “Potto Lexus”) become the one with the largest jackpot. In fact, this past Saturday saw its jackpot rise (again!) to $21.25 million. Powerball, determined to not have its jackpot won so easily, pulled itself back up. With no one able to pick all six numbers, the jackpot rose to $22 million.

A playback wasn’t the only tool in the Lotto Texas arsenal. There were also two repeating Four-Number Combinations, one of which played twice before!

With Powerball on top, it appears that the “rightful” order has been restored. As we head into another week of lottery madness, will Powerball get past $22 million this time? Will the Lotto Texas jackpot keep climbing?
