There was more, far more, to the October 13, 2020 drawing than what the numbers showed. So much in fact that the introduction to today’s post wouldn’t be enough. What happened that was so grand? Well, for starters, it was grand enough that the jackpot grew to $77 million.

Three-Number Combinations

Naturally, a repeating Four-Number Combination birthed four repeating Three-Number Combinations. Only three of these four debuted in the August 14th drawing mentioned earlier:

  • 11, 44, 45 (Debuted March 17, 2015)
  • 11, 44, 46
  • 44, 45, 46
