Summer Spread & Summer Streak

Whether the summers really are getting longer and hotter or it’s just you, air conditioning is a blessing. All you need to do is turn down the thermostat, plop on the couch, and let the cool air blow. That is, unless the air conditioner breaks down and you’re dripping in sweat. You may then be tempted to take off some or even all your clothes and walk around just to feel a breeze. Thankfully, lotteries don’t engage in that kind of streak. Interestingly, things get hotter in the lottery world whenever there’s a streak. A Pattern streak, that is!

July 16, 2022 was the night that Powerball’s {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern got into streak mode. Entering “streak mode” unleashed a bombardment of repeating Three-Number Combinations and helped push the jackpot to a robust $89 million. Meanwhile, Lotto Texas took to a different approach. Ever the classy one, this lottery switched out Patterns, which pushed the jackpot to $7.25 million.
