Lotto Texas and Powerball Ride the Encore Wave

Mardi Gras and Ash Wednesday couldn’t be any more different. The former is a day of festivities and for some, outright debauchery. In contrast, the latter is a day of repentance for Christians, especially Catholics. Priests place ash crosses on the heads of worshipers, which symbolizes the acknowledgement of sin, and the acknowledgement that from dust we came and to dust we shall return (hence, the ashes). It’s also the first day of Lent, a forty-day period of fasting (or giving up something one enjoys) that ends on Palm Sunday.  All of this concludes exactly one week before Easter.  Two days before the end of that week is referred to as the Passion of the Christ, the last twelve hours of Jesus’ Life on the day of His Crucifixion, celebrated by Christians as Good Friday.

Ash Wednesday, that is, March 2, 2022, was anything but a time of inner reflection for either Lotto Texas or Powerball. Both lotteries went wild with Pattern encores and boosted their respective jackpots to $6.75 million and $85 million.
