The Exact Art of a Spread

November was the month repeating Combinations reigned supreme. As the month concluded, one would have expected either Lotto Texas or Powerball to take it down a notch. Instead, one of the lotteries opted for an exact spread, and there were more repeating Combinations! Additionally, the jackpots climbed once more, with Lotto Texas growing to $18.75 million and Powerball $81 million.

Recuperation

In the lead-up to Thanksgiving, both Lotto Texas and Powerball went crazy for repeating Combinations. The day before Thanksgiving had a record 17 repeating Combinations! Saturday night was much different. The lotteries figured that too many Combinations in such a short amount of time wasn’t going to be good for them in the long run. Instead, they spent the night too tired (and stuffed) to do much of anything. However, there was just enough energy to keep the players from claiming the jackpots. Lotto Texas held strong at $17.25 million, and the Powerball prize pushed onward to $56 million.

What with people heading home and bracing for another work/school week, perhaps it’s fitting that neither Lotto Texas nor Powerball went crazy with the repeating Combinations. We are, of course, now in the Christmas season. Inquiring minds want to know what shenanigans these lotteries will be up to in the coming weeks. Are more nights with a glut of repeating Combinations on tap, or will they have something else up their sleeves?

With a beast of a jackpot and the momentum of repeating Three-Number Combinations, Mega Millions is heading into the Christmas season full speed ahead! How long will the jackpot growth and the repeating Combination feast continue?

The Stuffening

Thanksgiving in the US has the misfortune of being overshadowed by both Halloween and Christmas. Right after the scares and candy come the Christmas decorations, the songs, the sales, we could go on. Given how pervasive Christmas is, no one would blame you if you didn’t know, or forgot*, that American Thanksgiving is in November. Perhaps Lotto Texas and Powerball can help with that.

*To our US readers: Be honest. How many of you have forgotten at least once about Thanksgiving?

Ever since this past weekend, both lotteries have engorged themselves on repeating Combinations. On Saturday, Powerball saw two repeating Four-Number Combinations, a rarity for this lottery, and Lotto Texas was the talk of the town Monday night with a repeating Five-Number Combination. The night of November 23, 2022 was a feast of Combinations!

Another repeating Five-Number Combination was spotted in Lotto Texas, and Powerball helped itself once again to two repeating Four-Number Combinations! Amidst the madness, the Lotto Texas jackpot grew to $16.75 million, and Powerball’s jackpot grew to $48 million.

Lotto Texas and Powerball’s Quadruple Knockout

Somehow, the phrase, “What the <insert favorite expletive> was that?!” doesn’t come close to describing what happened Saturday night.

Unfortunately for Powerball, that played a part in the jackpot resetting to $20 million. Meanwhile, Lotto Texas seamlessly incorporated its repeating Four-Number Combinations as the jackpot rose to $15.75 million.

With the Powerball jackpot now at $20 million, Lotto Texas isn’t that far behind. (US) Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and there’s no telling what these two are cooking up. On the one hand, things may be quieter, what with the upcoming holiday. On the other hand, Christmas is coming up! We’ll just have to watch and see, won’t we?

A Searing Hot Three-peat

Summer is a distant memory, and winter has decided to pay an early visit. Like Mother Nature, Mega Millions continues with its routine, caring not what mere mortals think. Given how cold it’s been lately, this lottery thought, “Let’s heat things up a bit”. A closer look at the November 18, 2022 results shows that “a bit” is an understatement!

Mega Millions continued to hold the title of “Largest Jackpot”. A Pattern three-peat made the jump to $259 million possible.
