With grace and poise, this lottery boosted the prize to $53 million. Meanwhile, Powerball’s efforts to go all out were rewarded with a prize that grew to $45 million.

Naturally, that repeating Four-Number Combination had four repeating Three-Number Combinations tucked away:

  • 61, 69, PB 4

All four of the above Combinations debuted in the earlier-mentioned July 15th drawing. However, these weren’t the only Combinations that played. Repeating Three-Number Combination 43, 61 and 69 debuted March 10, 2018 and was last seen August 29, 2022.

Powerball may have the smallest jackpot for now, but it won’t be long before it overtakes Lotto Texas. Perhaps Powerball will see another jackpot boost Saturday night. Or Lotto Texas will be forced to reset. Either way, Powerball comes out on top. We’ll just have to see which one takes shape!
