The Reigning Combination Affliction

Last time we saw our dear friends Lotto Texas and Powerball, there were mutterings of a conspiracy amongst them. Both lotteries took it upon themselves to bombard everyone with repeating Combinations aplenty. Based off what happened April 30, 2022, the word “conspiracy” caught one lottery off-guard. In contrast to earlier in the week, this lottery took it down a notch. Meanwhile, the other lottery didn’t care a whit, further delving into the madness. Both Lotto Texas and Powerball saw their respective jackpots climb to $11.25 million and $27 million.
