The Great Lottery Jackpot Takedown

It’s over. After a summer of growth, it came to an end Saturday night. On October 2, 2021, the jackpot was finally won…in Lotto Texas. By the hands of a single player in Houston, the prize was reset to $5 million.

Meanwhile, Powerball continued to hold strong. As if having a jackpot grow to $670 million wasn’t enough, a repeating Four-Number Combination made itself at home!

Lotto Texas

Will the Powerball jackpot hit the reset button in the week ahead?

Jackpots Firmly Rooted

As some things change, others remain the same. Even though summer has transitioned to fall well, the Lotto Texas and Powerball jackpots just won’t fall. In fact, the thrill of high jackpots just makes these lotteries even more unwilling to give in! At least, that’s what Saturday night suggested.

Neither Lotto Texas nor Powerball were willing to go down September 25, 2021. A Pattern streak and a Pattern encore were on tap, and there was a repeating Four-Number Combination somewhere. Once the dust settled, Lotto Texas’s jackpot climbed to $19.25 million (it could just taste the $20 million mark). Meanwhile, Powerball, monster that it is, grew to $545 million.

Small Pattern, Big Impressions

Time flies, doesn’t it? September 22, 2021 was the start of fall. Speaking of fall, a massive jackpot has fallen: Mega Millions! Tuesday night, the last night of the summer, was when the beastly jackpot was brought down. Meanwhile, the jackpots in Lotto Texas and Powerball only went one way. Up.

Lotto Texas was besides itself with a jackpot that rose to $18.75 million. However, it must be said that Powerball’s crossing over the half-billion-dollar mark was a showstopper. The prize there climbed to a dizzying $523 million!

The Big Prize Summer

The summer season is almost over, and you can already see and feel the changes! Days continue to get shorter, pumpkin spice latte is back on the menu, and football dominates the weekend schedule.

These lotteries formed an alliance sometime in June. Since then, players have tried and failed to win the grand prize. The Lotto Texas-Powerball alliance held strong September 18, 2021, as players failed yet again. Their respective jackpots were pushed to $17.5 million and $472 million.

Mega Millions’ Smashing September Start

Even though September 21st is the official last day of summer, Labor Day is considered the traditional end of the season.

Whether you and/or your kids have been in class for several weeks or have yet to start, a three-day weekend is always welcome.

Fireworks aren’t often associated with Labor Day celebrations, but Mega Millions put on a show! This lottery got things rolling with an uncommonly seen Pattern.
