The Weekend Playback with a Side of Combination Explosion

Ever since the end of April, Lotto Texas and Powerball have been fired up. Whether they’re blasting everyone with repeating Combinations or similar spreads, these lotteries don’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon! However, if we take a closer look at what happened May 7, 2022, that’s not entirely true.

One lottery saw a Combination explosion Saturday night, but the other didn’t. Both strategies paid off in the whole “Evading the players” scheme, though. Lotto Texas continued to hold strong with a jackpot of $13 million, and Powerball’s pushed onward to $59 million.
