Saturday Night Boomerang

As August begins to fade into September, the summer holidays are over, or will be soon enough. With another summer coming and going, there are a couple of things that won’t fade away on a schedule. Jackpots! Then again, why should they? Jackpots aren’t affected all that much by human affairs, unless of course you consider adding another day their lotteries have drawings.

Nevertheless, the week ended the way it started. August 28, 2021 featured a playback for one lottery and a Pattern three-peat for the other, which only fed into their ever-growing jackpots. As Lotto Texas and Powerball psyched themselves up for September (there’s still one more August drawing to go), their respective jackpots grew to $13.25 million and $332 million.

Will Monday’s drawing solidify a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern streak in Powerball, and will the jackpots rise into September?
