The Spread is Strong with These Two

“May the fourth be with you.”

You probably hear this at least once every May 4th. For those out of the loop, May 4th is the unofficial holiday known as Star Wars Day. Sure, this series can be celebrated any day, but if you think about it, May 4th is fitting!

While “Star Wars” fans got their geek on, Lotto Texas and Powerball were engaged in a battle in a galaxy not so far away. May 4, 2022 was a night of similar spreads, a Pattern encore, and rising jackpots. Lotto Texas ascended to $12.5 million, and Powerball propelled itself to $51 million.
