Lotto Texas and Powerball Go Stir Crazy

As toilet paper remains in limited supply and people discover basic hygiene (Seriously, y’all, wash your hands), Lotto Texas and Powerball are kicking back. They’re above such worries like soap and viruses, since they don’t get sick and all. Even if they can lord it over humans that they’re immune to every disease ever, there is one thing that not even a poised lottery like Lotto Texas is immune to: Going nuts.

Both lotteries thought “Throwing things to a wall and see what sticks” was a fun way to pass the time Wednesday night. Based on our analysis, a lot of things got stuck! During the cleanup process, a couple of jackpot hikes were salvaged. Lotto Texas climbed to $9.5 million while Powerball struck gold at $140 million.

How Does a Lottery Show Its Love?

It’s a riddle for the ages, much like “Why did the chicken cross the road?” and “Why is a raven like a writing desk?”

How does a lottery show its love?

If you were Lotto Texas, then you showed your love for the {3-2-1} Pattern by sticking with it once again. You also wanted to spread the love and send the jackpot upward to $7.5 million. Powerball moved on to another Pattern and sent its jackpot to $70 million.

Spreading Lottery-Brand Madness

We’ve all been told (or should have been told) to never judge a book by its cover. That piece of advice must always be considered when performing lottery analysis. On the surface, both Lotto Texas and Powerball’s six numbers are unassuming. After all, they’re just numbers.

Well, this past Saturday saw a monstrous jackpot grow even larger, a Pattern encore, and a similar spread. The jackpot climbed to $5.25 million in Lotto Texas and $343 million in Powerball. Just numbers, indeed!

Going into next week, we’ll need to keep an eye out for Powerball. That beast of a jackpot will get toppled sometime, but will it be Wednesday night, and with a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern encore? Meanwhile, the {4-1-1} Pattern isn’t known to make three-peats in Lotto Texas, but nothing seems too out of the ordinary for these lotteries!  

The World According to Lotto Texas (and Powerball)

Lotto Texas dominated the lottery landscape August 28th, 2019. The winless streak continued as the prize climbed to $18.25 million. What made this lottery stand out Wednesday night was that it had

  • An encore
  • A playback
  • A similar spread
  • A repeating Five-Number Combination
  • Seven repeating Four-Number Combinations

Seriously, it was like Lotto Texas had this checklist of “Awesome Ways to End the Month” and had a field day!

Powerball had its own brand of insanity. A Specific Order debut and a couple of  repeating Three-Number Combinations may seem like small potatoes, but that was enough to propel the grand prize to $70 million.

Lotto Texas and Powerball will have the joint honor of playing the last day of August. Will the lead-up to September be just as wild as Wednesday, or will the month end on a quieter note?

August Sweeps

August isn’t so boring after all. For Lotto Texas especially, it’s been one hell of a ride! Nothing could bring it down and the aftermath was a jackpot that leapt upwards to $17.25 million.

Now, Lotto Texas wasn’t the only one wild and out August 21st, 2019. Powerball gained the courage to do something quite daring. This risk paid off for it, as players failed to pick all six winning numbers. The prize climbed to $50 million as a result.

Looks like neither Lotto Texas nor Powerball could wait until the weekend to unleash the fireworks! Speaking of, will this level of madness show up again Saturday night, or will they take a breather?

For the Love of Spread

This August has been anything but boring in the lottery world. Sometime during the summer, Lotto Texas developed a love of shenanigans. This normally peaceful lottery has partaken in a love of similar spreads and playbacks. It even let the {3-3} Pattern have a taste of “the encores”! The shenanigans continued August 10th, 2019 with more similar spread action and a prize that climbed to $15.75 million.

In a surprising turn of events, Powerball has taken the role of the chaste lottery. Even so, it too has kept players at bay. The prize grew to $138 million.

The Playback Blowtorch

It was a scorcher Wednesday night, and we don’t just mean a heat wave! August 7th, 2019 was the night both Lotto Texas and Powerball saw a playback. Additionally, one of these lotteries was also neck-deep in encores. The intensity of this blowtorch kept players away from the grand prizes. These rose to $15.25 million for Lotto Texas and $128 million for Powerball.

Will Powerball start August with a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern encore, and will Lotto Texas continue its jackpot climb?

Three-peats and Terrors

Monsters of the “number-y” kind were unleashed upon the world May 22nd, 2019. Powerball’s beast of a jackpot expanded to $308 million, probably inspired by sister Mega Millions. Lotto Texas, ever respectable, sprouted upward to $6.25 million. That ever respectable lottery was responsible for a few terrors of its own.

Exactly What It Spreads

Lottery Binge has been gracing the Internet for almost three years. We’ve covered playbacks, Pattern streaks, monster-sized jackpots, similar spreads, and so much more. You can rarely go wrong expecting at least one of the lotteries to see a rise in their jackpots. For instance, Lotto Texas and Powerball will be going into Saturday night with $5.25 million and $136 million, respectively. There just isn’t anything new to cover. Just variations of what we’ve seen before, right?

Wrong!

April 17th, 2019 was a night like no other. For the first time ever, we’re covering a little something called

THE EXACT SPREAD!

Exact Spread

It was Lotto Texas. Yes, the (often) reserved Lotto Texas that saw the exact spread.

Now, you’ve all heard of the similar spread. For those who haven’t, or need a refresher, a similar spread is what happens when the difference between the numbers in two drawings are the same, but orders of said numbers are different. With an exact spread, both the differences between the numbers in two drawings and the orders of said numbers are the same!

Wednesday night’s numbers had a spread of 01:07:02:12:01.

On April 21st, 2012, the winning numbers were 23, 24, 31, 33, 45, and 46. The spread that night was 01:07:02:12:01. To think that it was almost seven years ago!

Four-Number Combination(s)

There were also two repeating Four-Number Combinations:

  • 7, 17, 29, 30 (Debuted November 12th, 2011)
  • 7, 15, 17, 29 (Debuted April 16th, 2014)

Lotto Texas may never see its jackpot rise to the heights seen in Powerball, but it more than makes up for it with its own wild plays. Speaking of Powerball, a Pattern streak is under way.

Powerball

Three-Number Combination(s)

Of course, who needs a playback when there’s at least one repeating Three-Number Combination, right? The lone Combination, 15, 66, and PB 15, made its debut August 26th, 2017.

A holiday weekend is coming up, so it’s possible that Powerball’s Pattern streak may hold. Of course, it could also slip away. Still, there are decent-sized jackpots up for grabs Saturday night.

(C’mon. You wouldn’t turn your nose up at $5.25 million!)

Will Saturday night be hopping mad, or will everything stew in silence?
