Australia Play: The Lottery Saga

The Australia Play was a hit this past week! Lotto Texas embraced it Wednesday night, and although it left the Australia Play for a more “popular” Pattern Saturday night, this unique play took root in Powerball. The trade-off was a boost to both lotteries’ jackpots, with Lotto Texas rising to $6.5 million and Powerball rising to $53 million.
