Sturdy Jackpot Foundation

A lottery jackpot is much like a house. Over time, the foundation wears away and if not shored up, the house collapses. Winning the jackpot is like knocking the house off its foundation. Unlike actual houses, lotteries can rebuild with every reset, so long as said lotteries continue to exist.

There were no signs of collapse in either Lotto Texas or Powerball January 16, 2021. Powerball, like Mega Millions, got closer to a billion-dollar jackpot. With the players thwarted yet again, the prize grew to $730 million. Lotto Texas remained respectable and quietly rose to $5.5 million.

Repeating Three-Number Combinations were absent Saturday night.

We’re halfway through January and Powerball has yet to fall. As it goes with lotteries, such a fall is inevitable, and this one is going to be massive! Will it happen next week, or will Powerball’s jackpot become a member of the Billion Dollar Club?

Unshakeable Lottery Jackpots

January 6, 2021 favored those who live for rising jackpots. Lotto Texas, for one, was ever the trooper. Although its jackpot is nowhere near the astronomical heights of its brethren, the prize grew to a respectable $7.75 million.

Powerball was the one to look out for. Conditions over the past few months have been favorable towards jackpot growth. Said conditions continued Wednesday night as the players’ efforts to become crazy rich were thwarted yet again. This monster of a prize grew to $470 million.

Beware the Other Beast

A new year has arrived and with it came lottery drawings. How amazing it would be to start the year off by winning millions of dollars! Why, from time-to-time, the jackpot can become worth hundreds of millions of dollars, if not at least a billion!

Although the Powerball jackpot isn’t a billion dollars (yet?), nothing stopped its growth January 2, 2021. The prize grew to $410 million. Meanwhile, ever-graceful Lotto Texas ascended to $7.5 million.

Lottery Party Mix: 2020 Edition

Chex Party Mix is one of many Christmastime snacks. For those unfamiliar with Chex, it’s a cereal from the U.S. Like Rice Krispies, it appears to be more popular as the key ingredient of a snack rather than part of a complete breakfast.

Now, a party mix wouldn’t be a mix without other goodies, would it? Chex can be mixed with all sorts of things, like pretzels, marshmallows, peanuts. It’s your choice what goes into the mix!

Lotto Texas and Powerball made their own party mix December 19, 2020. One lottery saw a Pattern three-peat, and another saw a similar spread. Throw in repeating Three and Four-Number Combinations and well sir, you got yourself a lottery party mix! To make it sweeter, both Lotto Texas and Powerball received a boost in their jackpots.

The Powerball jackpot continues soaring to great heights, and the drawing before Christmas looks to be one for the ages. Question is, will it be the jackpots growing once more, or someone winning a coveted prize?

Jackpots Rise. Snow Falls

Nothing says “Winter” more than snow! Beautiful to look at, fun to play in, and looks like Christmas. But, if one isn’t careful, snow can be dangerous.

Lottery jackpots, like snow, are beautiful to look at. Who can resist winning millions of dollars and possibly retiring early? Lotteries themselves are fun to play, if played responsibly. Otherwise, a lottery can be a dangerous thing.

There wasn’t anything dangerous about either Lotto Texas or Powerball December 16, 2020. These lotteries not only embraced their most commonly played Patterns; they also embraced rising jackpots. The ever-dignified Lotto Texas saw its jackpot rise to $6.25 million. Meanwhile, Powerball relished in its climb to $304 million.

Saturday night is, without a doubt, the busiest night of the week. It’s the height of the weekend and whether it’s drinking or staying up to stream movies, it’s about letting loose. And of course, that extra energy needs to be out of your system before you start yet another work (or school) week!

The Lotto Texas and Powerball that we saw earlier in the week were absent December 12, 2020. Both lotteries were more active, and that energy boost also boosted their jackpots. Lotto Texas rose to $6 million and Powerball ascended to $287 million.

The Ghost of October 21st

What’s Christmas without at least one reference to A Christmas Carol? Whether you’ve seen the various adaptations or read it, you know about the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future. Believe it or not, this perennial Christmas classic is tied to today’s post.

Lotteries are constantly visited by the past; that’s part of their nature, and what makes Lottery Trend possible. What made December 5, 2020 interesting was the prominence of the number 21. Both Lotto Texas and Powerball were visited (haunted?) by the ghost of October 21. The visitation generated a boost to both their jackpots! Lotto Texas rose to $5.5 million and Powerball’s prize climbed to $262 million.

No Room for Pattern Encores

December has started, and the Thanksgiving leftovers are gone (or frozen). Most everyone has gone back to work and school, though with another holiday right around the corner, it’s easy to stay in a festive mood! Lotteries get in the holiday mood with Australia Plays, Pattern streaks, and playbacks, just to name a few things.

Mega Millions had the idea of starting the month with a Pattern streak. Lotto Texas and Powerball had other ideas. Pattern encores were absent, but they weren’t needed to boost the jackpots. With no one able to pick the six winning numbers in either lottery, their respective jackpots rose to $5.25 million and $243 million.

A {3-2-1} Kind of Night

3, 2, 1. These are the last numbers in a countdown. In the lottery world, they hold a special significance, for they make up a Pattern. Its presence, though, isn’t uniform. Lotto Texas is visited by this Pattern the most and doesn’t get nearly as much play in Powerball (or Mega Millions).

But, on November 21, 2020, the {3-2-1} Pattern put in double time and paid a visit to both Lotto Texas and Powerball! With that, the jackpots grew once more. Lotto Texas grew to $8.75M and Powerball crossed $200 million ($202 million).
