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.

Lotto Texas and Powerball were truly in sync. In fact, they were so in sync that both, yes both, featured two repeating Four-Number Combinations! 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.

There may not be any big jackpots for a while, but you can count on some surprises, especially with the Holiday Season on its way. This is Romulun Harris signing off. Stay safe and stay warm.  

Pattern Streak and Jackpots Creep

When you see or hear “creep”, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Something icky or disturbing, probably. Or, you’re thinking about all the times a project deadline crept up, and you just knew that you had more time. Now, what if there existed a scenario where something creeping was a good thing? Lottery jackpots, for example, usually grow slowly and steadily, and whoever wins is rewarded handsomely.

November 12, 2022 was a good night for both Lotto Texas and Powerball. Their prizes slowly and steadily grow (crept up) to $14.25 million and $59 million, respectively. In fact, one grew with an assist from a Pattern streak.

Streaking and Rebounding

This week kicked off with a bang, didn’t it? After turning our clocks back one hour, Powerball got knocked back. In fact, we here at Lottery Binge had to wait another day for results! As we came to Wednesday, things didn’t really settle down. Lotto Texas remained in the grasp of the {3-2-1} Pattern and streaked on to $14 million. Powerball’s jackpot bounced back to $47 million, almost as if the smackdown were more of a slap.

Greetings, Lotterytrend fans! Romulun Harris here. Last night, on November 7, 2022, after traveling along the rails for over the past quarter year, Powerball’s Jackpot Express finally reached the end of the line when its jackpot worth around a record-breaking $2 billion—yes, $2 billion! —had finally been won by someone in the Golden State on the West Coast. To whoever that winner is, I wish him good luck.

Who knows when something like this will occur again? This is Romulun Harris signing off and wishing good luck to the $2 billion dollar winner!

The Saturday Night Special: Pattern Fall Back and Combination Fracas

Will Monday night be a $2 billion+ kind of night for Powerball, or will the rising jackpot train come to a stop?

And Going…

Powerball’s jackpot continued to be the elephant in the room. Its growth wasn’t hampered earlier in the week, and nothing slowed it down Wednesday night. In fact, a Pattern three-peat, and then some, pushed the prize to $1.5 billion!

“Why should Powerball have all the fun?” Lotto Texas thought. “I’m still relevant, dagnabit!”  

(Good ol’ Lotto Texas, keeping it classy)

Lotto Texas may not be as grand as Powerball, but the prize over there saw a growth spurt as well. Few would turn their nose up at an $11.5 million jackpot!

Powerball thought a three-peat and a (near) playback were sufficient for throwing its weight around.

Powerball may be the biggest, baddest lottery around, but this is just another rise-reset-rise cycle. In the meantime, the world continues to watch Powerball with bated breath, wondering if a $2 billion prize isn’t too far off. And Lotto Texas, dear, dignified Lotto Texas, will (most likely) continue onward with little fanfare.

Saintly Mega Millions

November 1st is All Saints’ Day. Primarily celebrated by Catholics, it commemorates all the saints of the church, both known and unknown. “Saintly” isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when one sees or hears “Mega Millions”. This lottery is notorious for all kinds of chicanery, not to mention the controversial nature of lotteries themselves. After all the excitement and fun of scary movies, haunted hayrides and candy binges, many people want to take it easy. So do lotteries.

Mega Millions didn’t start November with a bang, opting to go for a more dignified approach. This paid off, for the jackpot grew to $110 million.

A Great and Terrible Duo

Lotto Texas and Powerball are joined at the hip. As one lottery holds a drawing, so must the other. Their (often) different approaches to these drawings determine whether their jackpots rise or fall together or separately. As we get closer to Halloween, the jackpots continue to rise together, and one lottery is determined to have a monster of a jackpot!

On October 26, 2022, Powerball wielded the awesome power of a Pattern streak to dazzle (and confuse) the players and send the jackpot to a staggering $800 million. Lotto Texas was no slouch, either. A more measured approach boosted the jackpot to $9.5 million.
