No Room for Pattern Encores

December has started, and the Thanksgiving leftovers are gone (or frozen). Most everyone has gone back to work and school, though with another holiday right around the corner, it’s easy to stay in a festive mood! Lotteries get in the holiday mood with Australia Plays, Pattern streaks, and playbacks, just to name a few things.

Mega Millions had the idea of starting the month with a Pattern streak. Lotto Texas and Powerball had other ideas. Pattern encores were absent, but they weren’t needed to boost the jackpots. With no one able to pick the six winning numbers in either lottery, their respective jackpots rose to $5.25 million and $243 million.
