Big Cool Down, Bigger Jackpots

Things feel more messed up these days. Some parts of the Northern Hemisphere feel more like late spring than winter or even early spring, for one. Throw in unnecessary belligerence, cold and flu (and COVID?) season, and the unshakeable feeling of being price gouged, it’s as if things are falling apart. As the human world embroils itself in contradictions, blame games, and measuring contests, the lottery world continues with a routine that has existed for many years. Wednesday night’s results were proof that big gains can be made without bluff and bluster.

February 22, 2023 was a night that showed both Lotto Texas and Powerball taking a calmer approach to jackpot gains. Putting aside the idea of Pattern streaks and dialing back on repeating Combinations pushed their respective jackpots to $47.25 million and $119 million.
