Feelin’ Those September Highs

Another September has come and gone, and the transition of seasons continues. Although the calendar says it’s fall, it still feels like summer in some places! Rising jackpots were the rule this summer and the results from September 29, 2021 showed that rule continued to hold for Lotto Texas and Powerball. The Lotto Texas jackpot eased into $20.75 million, and Powerball’s jackpot soared to $620 million.

With September ending on a high note for both Lotto Texas and Powerball, will either hit a low Saturday night?

Pump Up the Jackpots

Saturday nights are peak weekend. Everything stays open later, much to the joy of those who like to hit the town. For those who aren’t the clubbing type, millions of titles can be accessed with the right apps. Saturday nights are also when Lotto Texas and Powerball come out. The allure of winning millions of dollars is strong. After all, many social butterflies and homebodies work for someone else, and would love to throw off the shackles of the rat race!

If you played either Lotto Texas and/or Powerball September 11, 2021, then you’ve got at least another day at the ole 9 to 5. These lotteries took to tossing in a playback and boosting their jackpots. Lotto Texas graciously ascended to $16.25 million, and Powerball shot up to $416 million.

Will Monday night produce a winner for at least one lottery, or will Lotto Texas and Powerball’s jackpots continue to rise?

The Post-Labor Day Wind Down

Another Labor Day weekend has come and gone, and Mega Millions was there to start the shortened work/school week. September 7, 2021 was much different than this past Friday. The quieter night reflected how the traditional summer is over. On the other hand, the blockbuster of a jackpot went unclaimed once more, climbing to a towering $368 million.

Mega Millions Takes a Breather

Previously, on “Lottery Trend”:

  • Lotto Texas and Powerball extended their domain to Mondays, meaning three nights a week of their madness. August 23, 2021 was the first night featuring this change.
  • This shakeup made the addition of another blogger necessary. Romulun Harris will give you the rundown of these lotteries’ Monday night ventures.
  • Currently, Mega Millions still plays only on Tuesdays and Fridays.

Last week was a busy one for Mega Millions! Both drawings saw similar spreads, and how about that playback this past Friday? Exerting all that energy, not to mention all that happened earlier this week, Tuesday night was the perfect opportunity for this lottery to take a breather. The rest proved beneficial, for the jackpot grew to $288 million.

That Good Old Fashioned Pattern Charm

The start of the holiday weekend may have been the start of something else in Mega Millions. It was on July 2nd that the {3-1-1-1} Pattern was invited for drinks and fireworks. The holiday weekend has since ended, but the Pattern decided to stick around for much longer! Long enough, in fact, that a three-peat happened. With the {3-1-1-1} Pattern three-peat came a jackpot boost to $104 million.

The Mega Millions After-Holiday Pattern Encore

The Fourth of July may have come and gone, but that didn’t mean there weren’t any leftovers. Unused fireworks, ribs and wieners that weren’t eaten at the barbecue, those sorts of things, true. However, in this case, “leftovers” meant a {3-1-1-1} Pattern encore. With that encore came a jackpot that grew to $94 million.

Mega Millions’ Completely Not Over-the-Top Celebration

No Independence Day celebration is complete without fireworks! If you’re the type who can’t wait until the holiday to see them, they were more visible in the sky over the neighborhood than in Mega Millions. Given how the Fourth of July holiday is known for its bombastic display of explosions, an opportunity for a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern streak went unrealized. However, Friday night did not disappoint. A jackpot doesn’t need fanfare to jump to $82 million.

The Juneteenth Playback Special

June 19th, or Juneteenth, commemorated the end of slavery in Texas. Although the Emancipation Proclamation had been signed in 1863, it wasn’t until June 19, 1865 that Union soldiers sailed into Galveston and read the Emancipation Proclamation that slavery was abolished in Texas.  

Yet, slavery hadn’t been fully abolished in the United States. Kentucky and Delaware, both Union states, continued to practice slavery until the ratification of the 13th Amendment six months later. This is because the Emancipation Proclamation only applied to the Confederacy, of which Texas was a part of.

Today, Juneteenth commemorates the end of slavery in the United States, and as of this past Thursday, a federal holiday. Not only is Juneteenth a day of remembrance for black Americans,  but it’s also a day of celebration.

Lotto Texas and Powerball were linked to this momentous occasion this year. Lotto Texas kept it classy while the jackpot grew to $6 million. Meanwhile, Powerball took a different approach to get its jackpot up to $63 million.

Will the {3-1-1-1} Pattern come back Tuesday night, or will another Pattern be the one to officially welcome summer for Mega Millions?

Mega Millions at the Jackpot Pool

An interesting trait about the Mega Millions jackpot is how it increases in size. The first drawing that takes place after a reset is much like dipping your toe in the pool. The second drawing would be akin to either stepping back (the prize resets to $20 million) or jumping in (the prize sees another increase).

Mega Millions jumped into the pool June 15, 2021 and did so with no hesitation. With none of the players picking all six numbers, the jackpot grew to $30 million.
