Lotto Texas: “I’m Still Relevant!”

Lotto Texas has a smaller jackpot than everyone else, true. That, however, has no effect on which Pattern is thrown to the masses. Or does it?

For a while, Lotto Texas was the one on top. And, although it has come to terms with the current situation, there’s nothing like the thrill of having the highest jackpot, a feeling that both Mega Millions and Powerball take for granted.

 October 10, 2020 was a night in which Lotto Texas tried to recreate that feeling. Oh, the jackpot wasn’t going to magically boost to $50 million, but a boost, any boost, would be sufficient.  The players be gifted with another showing of the {2-2-1-1} Pattern. Additional shenanigans with repeating Four-Number Combinations helped push the jackpot to $5.75 million.

Powerball was the calm one Saturday night. Unlike the frantic nature of that “uppity” lottery, Powerball exercised poise and grace. That paid off, for the jackpot got a hefty boost to $72 million.
