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!

Saturday night’s results may be the opening for an active week. We’ll need to keep an eye out for a potential {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern three-peat in Powerball. We’ll also know if Lotto Texas can continue on its jackpot high or if it will be brought down to size.

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.

The Persuasive Power of Combinations

A different trend has taken hold in the lottery world. Mega Millions has been following it for a while, and Lotto Texas and Powerball came into the fold this past Saturday night. We’ve come to expect Pattern streaks and other wild plays to send the jackpots higher. As we approach a new decade (depending on who you ask), the lotteries appear to be testing out a new strategy: embracing repeating Four- and Three-Number Combinations!

Why not? Bombarding the players with repeating Combinations is a subtle approach to boosting the jackpots’ worth. In fact, unboxing these Combinations was all that was needed to send Lotto Texas’s prize to $13 million and Powerball’s to $160 million.

Speaking of, the presence of a repeating Four-Number Combination wasn’t all that Lotto Texas and Powerball had in common.

With 2.5 weeks left before Christmas, there’s plenty of time for Pattern streaks to get established and for jackpots to enter crazy-high territory (like Mega Millions). Will Powerball’s {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern have a streak for the ages, or will another Pattern block its chances of a three-peat Wednesday night? Will Lotto Texas’s {4-2} Pattern do something “uncharacteristic” and go for the encore?

Roasted Playback & Encore Gravy

Thanksgiving Eve is undoubtedly one of the busiest days of the year. Be it braving the roads (or skies) or making that last-minute trip to the store, there’s hardly a dull moment!

Lotto Texas and Powerball were making their own Thanksgiving preparations. They spent the evening roasting up a Pattern playback, with a Pattern encore for dressing. The side dishes were repeating Four-and Three-Number Combinations, and for dessert, rising jackpots. Lotto Texas offered up a jackpot that rose to $9.75 million while Powerball’s was a prize that climbed to $110 million.

Lotto Texas and Powerball Fall Back

After gorging yourself on Halloween candy and jumping onto a holiday sale, what better way to sleep it off than with setting the clock back one hour? If you’re reading this blog from either the U.S. or Canada, you most likely set your clock back one hour this weekend, making the already early sunsets come even earlier.

Lotto Texas and Powerball also “fell back” November 2nd, 2019. Neither lottery had any big plays in their arsenals. Perhaps this was the opening one Powerball player needed as he (or she) became the sole winner of $150 million! Naturally, the jackpot reset to $40 million.

There was nothing wonky about either Lotto Texas or Powerball this past Saturday. The lotteries kept players on their toes, and away from the grand prizes, once again.

It looks like October is off to a quiet start but that doesn’t mean the month will stay that way. This was the month that produced beastly jackpots after all!

A Lotto-Tight Fist

An unexpected character evolution has taken hold in the lottery world over the past few months. Lotto Texas, generally the meek, unassuming lottery, has gotten a taste of crazy jackpot fever, relatively speaking. There were no grand prize winners September 7th, 2019, and this pushed the jackpot over the $20 million mark ($20.5 million, in fact)!

Powerball’s jackpot hasn’t received the “nurturing” Lotto Texas has. These past few months have seen the prize reset three times. Not so Saturday night. With no grand prize winner, the jackpot now stands at $50 million.
