Jackpot Growth, So it Goes

They say it’s always the ones you least expect. For as long as we’ve done Lottery Binge, the current behavior in Lotto Texas is something for sure. Never have we seen such determination from a lottery known to bow out gracefully long before the jackpot reaches as high as it has become lately! Lotto Texas, often overshadowed by Powerball and Mega Million, continues to have a jackpot that’s “in their league”, so to speak.

Rather than opt for a Pattern encore, Lotto Texas took to playing a less common Pattern Saturday night. This paid off handsomely, for the jackpot grew to $54.5 million. Meanwhile, Powerball’s nifty handling of an Australia Play boosted the jackpot over there to $86 million.
