Concerning Supercomputers and Playbacks

Before we get into the nitty gritty of Lotto Texas and Powerball, there’s something that needs to be addressed. There has been some chatter among other lottery sites regarding our analysis methods. “Just how are they getting it done so fast?!” they ask. They’re speculating, no, insisting, that we use a supercomputer. You’ve all probably wondered that yourselves. Inquiring minds want to know! Do we at Lottery Trend use a supercomputer?

Why, yes. Yes, we do. In fact, I think I have a picture of it somewhere.

Here it is!

Actually, we have four of these state-of-the-art supercomputers.

Now that that’s been settled, let’s take a look at the September 8, 2021 lottery bonanza, shall we? Wednesday night was favorable for both playbacks and rising jackpots! Lotto Texas and Powerball’s playbacks boosted their respective jackpots to $16 million and $409 million.
