Invasion of the Repeating Four-Number Combinations

For those who don’t partake in Halloween, October 30th is just another day. For everyone else, it’s a “last call” for preparations. Hopefully, you didn’t put off finding a costume or buying candy! Or perhaps costumes and candy aren’t your thing. You prefer watching scary moves or doing the scaring yourself.

Lotto Texas and Powerball aren’t into the haunting business. No spooky noises or jump scares for these two! Instead, they took a similar approach this past Saturday night. October 30, 2021 saw not only a playback for one lottery, but both lotteries saw a repeating Four-Number Combination. Well, that and rising jackpots. Lotto Texas’s jackpot ascended to $8 million, and Powerball’s rested at a comfortable $123 million.
