The Closing Jackpot Gap

Not much separates the value of the Powerball and Lotto Texas jackpots. Currently, Mega Millions has the most clout, and although they both have a way to go before reaching that height, a race to be Number Two may be underway soon.

On August 22, 2020, the gap between “established” Powerball and “new money” Lotto Texas narrowed. With neither lottery seeing a grand prize winner, their jackpots increased. Lotto Texas ascended to $34.75 million and Powerball ascended to $37 million.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Powerball, flustered by that “uppity” Lotto Texas, had no repeating Three-Number Combinations to accompany it.

At least one of these things will happen Wednesday night: Lotto Texas continues to close in on Powerball, or Lotto Texas takes the Number Two spot as Powerball resets. Perhaps in their bout of social climbing, they take each other down? Powerball would certainly be Number Two then, what with Lotto Texas’s reset value being $5 million, while it would sit comfortably at $20 million. We’ll just have to wait until Wednesday night and see!
