After a busy Tuesday, Mega Millions retreated Friday night. No Pattern encores, no crazy plays of any kind to be had. There were a couple of major developments, though. One was a single Three-Number Combination that made its first appearance five years ago. The other was yet another rise in the jackpot; it became worth $113 million.

The Playback, the Encore, and the Combination Madness

The world is currently in the grip of a pandemic. Closures and cancellations are happening left and right, work-at-home policies are being enacted, and toilet paper might as well be gold. Now is the time to plan ahead, practice good hygiene and use common sense. When others are losing their cool, don’t lose yours.

Considering all that’s happening, lotteries are the lucky ones. After all, they don’t worry themselves with illnesses or economies. Their biggest concern is their jackpots and what to do with them. Should they throw players a bone and let them win, or is it more fun to thwart them? Sure, the players will be spitting nails and gnashing their teeth, but many of them will come back and try again.

In a move that surprised (almost) no one, Lotto Texas and Powerball opted to thwart the players Wednesday night. This sent their respective jackpots to $9 million and $120 million.
