Lotto Texas and Powerball’s Common Ground

Lotto Texas and Powerball can’t be any more different! One is known for having a behemoth of a prize show up on occasion while the other takes a more measured approach. On top of that, Lotto Texas has only white balls 1 through 54 and Powerball not only has white balls 1 through 69, it also has red Powerballs that range from 1 to 26. And of course, Lotto Texas is the Texas State Lottery (though others in other parts of the country can snag such a ticket) while Powerball tickets are readily available just about anywhere in the United States.

These differences were cast aside October 27, 2021. Both Lotto Texas and Powerball took to playing their most common Patterns. This worked to boost their respective jackpots to $7.75 million and $116 million.

Both the {3-2-1} Pattern and the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern are notorious for making encores, and then some. Will October in the lottery world end with at least one of these Patterns returning?
