The Lottery Mid-Week Double Encore Chiller

It’s that time of year again! All the pumpkin spice-themed food and accessories, not to mention actual pumpkins, candy sales, and decorations mean one thing: Halloween is upon us. Now, lotteries don’t go bump in the night or suck your blood, but they can and do have the power to scare. After all, the prospect of winning millions of dollars is both exciting and terrifying, isn’t it? Want to know what else is terrifying? When lotteries don’t let anyone take off with their jackpots, especially if you don’t know how they did it. How a lottery dashes dreams of overnight riches changes up; fun to keep the players on their toes, after all.

October 20, 2021 meant rising jackpots for both Lotto Texas and Powerball. Through the power of a double encore and an assist from repeating Three and Four-Number Combinations, their respective jackpots climbed to $7 million and $86 million.
