Spreading Saturday Cheer

Both Lotto Texas and Powerball had the honor of ringing in December. Yes, folks, we’re in the home stretch, and soon we’ll be seeing 2021 in the rear-view mirror! Ironically, lotteries help propel our dreams for the future by drawing heavily on the past.

December 1, 2021 was a night that resembled this past Saturday. Both Patterns featured that night returned Wednesday, and one lottery saw a similar spread. By drawing from the recent past, the future jackpots for Lotto Texas and Powerball rose to $11.5 million and $278 million, respectively.

Similar Spread

Wednesday night’s numbers had a spread of 03:04:14:06:08. A spread that was much like this took place in what, in lottery terms, may as well be the distant past. On May 16, 2001, the spread was 04:14:03:06:08, produced by winning numbers 15, 19, 33, 36, 42 and 50. Whether it was twenty weeks ago or twenty years ago, a similar spread will feature differences in numbers that are the same yet in different orders. Of course, the numbers played those nights are likely to be different as well.
