Of Resets and Risings

“Rise-reset-rise” can be thought of as a lottery’s circle of life. Jackpots rise, reset, and rise again, with the length of time between the initial rise and the inevitable reset varying. This cycle has existed for as long as there have been lotteries and will continue until they are no more.

The cycle was on display March 5, 2022. After a few of weeks of seeing a slow and steady jackpot increase, Lotto Texas was forced to reset, starting over at $5 million. Meanwhile, Powerball escaped the call to reset for now; its jackpot continued onward to $90 million.
