From Playbacks to A Combination Blowout

Blowout. Now, there’s a term not often associated with Easter. Sure, there’s the egg hunts and the marshmallow Peeps, but compared to Christmas and even Mardi Gras, Easter is the software programmer who mainly keeps to himself. However, the reserved nature of the holiday itself may have no bearing on what happens the night before. This is certainly true of those who pay no mind to human conventions, like lotteries.

Lotto Texas and Powerball certainly paid no mind to the fact that April 16, 2022 was the day before Easter. In fact, Saturday night’s results were a blowout compared to what we saw earlier this week! Another playback in Lotto Texas propelled the jackpot to $9.5 million. Although Powerball didn’t see a playback, the use of a repeating Four-Number Combination, to devastating effect, sent the jackpot soaring to $348 million.

Three-Number Combinations

Naturally, when one cuts open a repeating Four-Number Combination, four repeating Three-Number Combinations fall out:

  • 15, 21, 32
  • 15, 21, 65
  • 21, 32, 65
  • 15, 32, 65

All the above debuted in the earlier-mentioned November 3, 2018 drawing. Repeating Three-Number Combination 15, 21, 32 was also last seen February 17, 2021.

Powerball loved repeating Three-Number Combinations so much, why not three more?

Are more playbacks in store for Lotto Texas, and will Powerball’s jackpot remain a beast in the week ahead?
