The Saturday Night Double Encore Madness

To everyone reading from the U.S. or Canada: Did you remember to spring forward?

(not applicable in Hawaii or Arizona)

Spring is on the horizon! The days are getting longer, Spring Break is here, and the wind is starting to pick up (perfect kite-flying weather!). With the transitioning of seasons, that means storms are brewing. And it just so happens that lotteries have their own storms. Rather than being the victims of such, they generate them.

Lotto Texas and Powerball got caught up in a whirlwind of their own making. March 13, 2021 was a night of not one, but two Pattern encores! Those encores granted a boost to their jackpots in the week ahead. Lotto Texas rose to $7.25 million, and Powerball climbed to $184 million.
