Lottery Minds Think Alike…Until They Don’t

Lotto Texas and Powerball read each other’s minds earlier this week. On Monday night, both lotteries played host to an Australia Play. Yes, two Australia Plays in one night! Come Wednesday night, Lotto Texas and Powerball took to different strategies to boost their jackpots. One stuck with the Australia Play, and the other opted for another Pattern. Both strategies proved effective, as Lotto Texas’s jackpot settled into $5.5 million, and Powerball’s bounded to $270 million.
