Strange and Remarkable 23

On the surface, 23 doesn’t look like a remarkable number. There are 24 hours in a day, not 23. The answer to Life, the Universe and Everything is not 23 (it’s 42), and 23 is so, so…so odd!

Why then is today’s post about 23? That’s the number of times the {3-2-1} Pattern has played in Mega Millions. This Pattern may not play often in this lottery, but when it showed up this past Tuesday, it made an impact. The grand prize went unclaimed yet again and rose to $130 million.

It’s not likely that the {3-2-1} Pattern will make an encore in Mega Millions. Still, there’s the matter of the growing jackpot. Will Friday night’s results make the jackpot grow again?

“Wild Wednesday” with Lotto Texas and Powerball

Lull? What lull?

Lotto Texas, known for its chastity and civility (compared to Mega Millions and Powerball anyway) was anything but chaste or civil! When it came to wild and unruly, this lottery reigned supreme. This uncharacteristic behavior sent the jackpot to an even $17 million.

Powerball didn’t act foolish, and perhaps it didn’t need to. The massive jackpot, which rose to $277 million, helped this lottery preserve the appearance of dignity.

The Future is {3-2-1}

Happy New Year, everyone! Some ways to start the new year include singing “Auld Lang Syne” (poorly), drinking, binge watching movies, watching the Rose Bowl, and playing lottery. Now, one of these things isn’t like the others. Having an opportunity to win millions of dollars on the very first day of a new year doesn’t happen on years that begin on Sunday, Monday, or Thursday.

New Year’s Day 2020 had two opportunities: Lotto Texas and Powerball. They kicked off the year by mostly keeping to themselves. This (mostly) quiet night saw the jackpots rise to $16.25 million in Lotto Texas and $237 million in Powerball.

Lotto Texas

Lotto Texas began the new year the same way the old one ended: with the {3-2-1} Pattern. The Pattern encore was brought to you by 3, 4, 13, 19, 35, and 37.

End-of-Year Lottery Bundle

Another year has come and gone! As a token of appreciation, Lotto Texas and Powerball offered another opportunity to win millions, enough for that tropical getaway. Repeating Four-Number Combinations were thrown in with Lotto Texas at no additional charge. Thing is, no one could claim the grand prize in either lottery this past Saturday. The jackpots rose once again: $15.5 million in Lotto Texas and $220 million in Powerball.

Pattern Encores for Solstice

This past Saturday marked the Winter Solstice in our part of the world. Not cold enough for a parka (very rarely does it ever get that cold in Houston) but cold enough for a jacket, hot cocoa, and of course, playing the lottery!

Lotto Texas and Powerball had the honor of showing up for Solstice this year. They must have read each other’s minds because both of them saw encores for their most common Patterns! That, and said encores boosted their respective lottery’s jackpot to $14.25 million and $183 million.

Quick! What comes to mind when you see December 18th, other than “There’s only one week until Christmas”? Hopefully you’ve at least started your Christmas prep by now! If you haven’t, well, best get to it.

While (some of) you were tempting fate, Lotto Texas and Powerball prepared by boosting their jackpots to $13.5 million and $171 million, respectively. This past Wednesday was almost exactly like December 11th, save for the numbers that played of course. One of these lotteries saw a playback, while the other came close. Which one saw what?

Snowballing into Millions

When braving the crowds of Christmas shoppers, you need to keep your wits about you and stand strong. When you want to create larger jackpots, you throw snowballs at the players. By “snowballs”, we mean repeating Four-Number and Three-Number Combinations.

Lotto Texas and Powerball were full of energy, and pummeled players with those earlier-mentioned snowballs. Powerball had so much energy that it piled on a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern three-peat! That was enough to send the prize to $150 million. Lotto Texas saw nothing in terms of Pattern encores, but its jackpot soared to $12.25 million.

Lotto Texas and Powerball in “Playback and a Half”

The pumpkin-flavored goodies have been pushed aside for peppermint. Strange yet enticing light displays offer brightness as the days continue to grow shorter or in some cases, disappear. Stores are packed with people looking for those special gifts, or the equipment to make the gifts. Truly we are in the Christmas season, the “mas” in “Hallowthankmas”!

Lotto Texas and Powerball aren’t able to shop for gifts, but they can offer them. Twice a week they have the power to grant at least one person with the gift of (early) retirement. Should no one win the ultimate prize, well, the gift gets ever grander.

Speaking of “grand”, Lotto Texas had the mind to offer up a playback this past Wednesday. The fact that it was also an encore makes it even grander! This was enough to push the jackpot to $11 million. Powerball saw no such encore, but the prize did rise to $130 million.

Post-Thanksgiving Lottery Blues

November 30th, 2019 was quiet on the Lotto Texas and Powerball front. Save for a Pattern three-peat in Powerball, these lotteries decided to rest up. Just as well.

For our U.S. readers, this past Saturday was either (a) a day of resting up or (b) wanting to get a leg up on the mad dash home. Another Thanksgiving weekend has come and gone. Monday means it’s back to work, back to school, and Cyber Monday deals. Some of these travelers, we’re sure, made an appointment with Lotto Texas and/or Powerball sometime Saturday. Why sit in the traffic jams or deal with airport security if you could win enough money to have your own private jet?

Traffic jams and airport security will have to be endured for a bit longer. With none of the jackpots claimed, they rose to $10.25 million for Lotto Texas and $120 million for Powerball.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Powerball didn’t want to contemplate repeating Three-Number Combinations.

Seeing as it was the Thanksgiving holiday and all, Lotto Texas and Powerball thought a break was well-deserved. It remains to be seen if this break is short-lived. The {3-2-1} Pattern resurfaced in Lotto Texas and we’ll need to keep an eye out for another Pattern streak. As for Powerball, the {2-2-1-1} Pattern appears to be gearing up for a streak; will it play again Wednesday night?

These desserts were baked and served by Lotto Texas and Powerball this past Saturday.

The Pattern streak held strong in Lotto Texas, helping to propel its jackpot to $9.25 million. Although there was no Pattern streak for Powerball, its prize climbed to $100 million.
