Playback and Something Like It

The playback buzz was in the air this past Wednesday night. Its presence was certainly felt in Lotto Texas and although it grabbed a hold of Powerball, it didn’t stick the landing. The only thing these lotteries had in common February 3, 2021 was rising jackpots. These rose to $6 million and $30 million, respectively.

Lotteries Keep on Slipping into the Future

We went through hell and back, but we made it. The end of 2020 is finally here, and boy did Lotto Texas and Powerball end the year with a bang!

December 30, 2020 saw the appearance of a similar spread and rising jackpots. Lotto Texas grew to a respectable $7.25 million. Powerball’s beastly jackpot grew to $384 million.

2020: The Great and Terrible

There’s a light at the end of the tunnel. After some of the most gut-wrenching, devastating, and mind-boggling months in recent history, 2020 will be over in a matter of weeks. In the meantime, 2020 paid a visit to Lotto Texas and Powerball December 9th. This visitation was enough to edge out all the other years completely.

However, those who cheer for increasing jackpots will be happy to hear that the prizes did indeed increase! Lotto Texas grew to a respectable $5.75 million and Powerball ascended to $277 million.

Repeating Four-Number Combinations: The Aftermath

Two repeating Four-Number Combinations: one in Lotto Texas, and one in Powerball. That last mention wasn’t a typo. A Powerball’s repeating Four-Number Combination always gives birth to four repeating Three-Number Combinations. It’s a law of nature.

All that happened over the weekend. Then came November 18, 2020 and both Lotto Texas and Powerball were still picking up the pieces. They were too exhausted to deal with Pattern encores or anything fancy like an Australia Play. Only one lottery had the strength to play a repeating Four-Number Combination (three guesses who) but they both saw a jump in their jackpots. Lotto Texas grew to $8.5 million and Powerball grew to $192 million.

Will Saturday night be another restful night for Lotto Texas and Powerball, or will they be rested up enough to bring more number madness?

They Goin’ Up!

Lotto Texas and Powerball live in different worlds, and Saturday night highlighted just how different they are. The former played an uncommon Pattern while the latter stuck with one of its most common. However, there are nights when these two appear to operate on similar wavelengths.

October 17, 2020 was one of those nights. Both lotteries saw their jackpots increase. Lotto Texas stepped up to $6.25 million and Powerball ascended to $91 million.

It’ll be That Time of Year ™ soon, and Powerball appears to be getting ready before everyone else! There’s a good chance that sometime in the coming week, the prize will be at least $100 million. Will it be thanks to a {2-2-1-1} Pattern streak, or will it be due to something else?

The Grand Combination Explosion

When lotteries get into lofty positions, they’re (usually) not willing to give them up easily. Lotto Texas has had a taste of the lottery high life. What with its jackpot closer to $40 million than it ever has been in a very long time, it’s has no plans to go down so easily! And even though Powerball is no stranger to being in such a comfortable spot, it too must put up the occasional fight to prove its worth.

When you come for lotteries, you best not miss.

Except, everyone missed September 5, 2020. Both lotteries had the insane idea of lobbing at least one repeating Four-Number Combination. Lotto Texas also threw in a similar spread for good measure. Sure, the country club hall is a mess, but Lotto Texas was pleased as punch upon reaching $39 million. Powerball was content with $75 million and thought there was no way that “uppity” Lotto Texas could catch up.

The top three Combinations made their debut in the July 11th drawing mentioned earlier. Although the last Combination in the group played on that date (naturally), its debut was January 27, 2018.

But, wait! There’s one more Combination: 15, 22 and 27 debuted June 24, 2020.

As the days grow shorter, the jackpots grow larger. Lotto Texas isn’t going to go down without a fight, and Powerball is content with the gap between them. Of course, if Powerball isn’t careful, it may find itself looking at Lotto Texas from behind. On the other hand, fate may deal Lotto Texas a bad hand, leaving Powerball to gloat as the “uppity” little lottery from down South has to start all over again at $5 million. What awaits these lotteries in the week ahead?

Unshakeable Lotto Texas and Plucky Powerball

This year has been a year of discovery for Lotto Texas. Unlike Mega Millions and Powerball, this lottery is, comparatively speaking, the prim and proper one. Now and again, it indulges but pulls back when things get too hairy. Thing is, Lotto Texas hasn’t pulled back in a while. Since January, the jackpot has climbed from $5 million to over $30 million. August 15, 2020 was yet another winless night, and more money being added to the pot meant $33.25 million up for grabs in the next drawing.

August 15, 2020 was a night of opportunity for Powerball. After getting knocked off its feet earlier this week, it dusted off and hit the ground running. With the help of encores from both the Pattern and the General Order, the jackpot rose to $22 million.

Lotto Texas seems to have fully embraced this “new” self. Will this lottery continue to indulge itself, or will it begin to tone it down a notch?

The Twisted Jackpot Tale

For the longest time, Lotto Texas was the “respectable” lottery. While Mega Millions and Powerball flirted with monstrously large jackpots from time to time, Lotto Texas never dared to go that high.

Sometime over the past few months, it developed an attitude shift. We’re not sure when this change in personality occurred, but June 6, 2020 was another night that the Lotto Texas jackpot resisted a takedown. As a result, it climbed to $20.75 million.

Powerball’s reset point isn’t as high as it once was. Whether that caused a boost in Lotto Texas’s confidence remains to be seen. Regardless, a prize that bumped up to $22 million is plenty to start that (early) retirement nest egg!

Reduced-Strength Encore and a Combination Triple Offense

The weekend is a cherished time. It’s meant to be the two-day reprieve from the grinds of work and school. It’s a time to catch up, a time to hang out, and a time to rest.

Lotto Texas most certainly took the “rest” part to heart. There was indeed a {4-2} Pattern encore, but this appearance wasn’t nearly as explosive. An over-the-top play wasn’t needed to send the jackpot to $17.5 million.

Powerball kept it classy. However, underneath that class was a monster of a jackpot that underwent another growth spurt. The prize climbed to $296 million.

Two questions weigh on our minds as we head into Wednesday: Will the {4-2} Pattern be bold enough to go for a three-peat in Lotto Texas? Will the prizes in both Lotto Texas and Powerball continue to grow, or will they be reset?

“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.
