Two-Way Triple Combination Punch

Spring is in full swing and COVID-19 vaccinations are under way. As humans continued to embrace warmer weather and a slow return to “normalcy”, Lotto Texas and Powerball couldn’t be any happier themselves. In fact, both lotteries had the audacity to go crazy on repeating Four and Three-Number Combinations, respectively. The biggest takeaway of April 14, 2021 was the rising jackpots. Lotto Texas’s jackpot held strong with $10.5 million, and Powerball’s ascended to $79 million.

Are either the Lotto Texas Australia Play or Powerball’s {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern on tap to make an encore Saturday night?

1001 Lottery Nights

This post is a tale about Lotto Texas and Powerball, two lotteries that couldn’t be any more different. Lotto Texas is the quieter, statelier lottery. Its prizes are often kept in a respectable range. Powerball is brash, in-your-face, and sometimes resorts to extreme measures to get attention.

Yet, despite these differences, both lotteries had one thing in common this past Saturday night: rising jackpots. March 6, 2021 saw the prize in Lotto Texas rise to $6.75 million, and Powerball jumped up to $155 million.

February 27th was only a week ago, but it had a lingering effect on both lotteries. Another tale awaits Lotto Texas and Powerball Wednesday night. One must wonder if either one will see a Pattern encore.

The End-of-Month Combination Special: February 2021 Edition

Another February has come and gone. Lotto Texas and Powerball had the joint honor of bidding the month farewell in the February 27, 2021 drawing. Based on our analysis, it was anything but quiet!

Fired Up Lotteries

February 13, 2021 was a bitterly cold night for so many people in Lottery Trend Country. Lotto Texas and Powerball, being lotteries and all, were immune and kept on trucking!

Radiance of Rising Jackpots

The year is young, and the lotteries aren’t taking any prisoners! January 13, 2021 saw one lottery pick itself back up and another continuing to taunt us. Plucky Lotto Texas went for an Australia Play encore, and the jackpot bounced to $5.25 million. Powerball strutted around like a peacock, pleased as punch that its jackpot grew to $640 million.

How the Prize was Won

The first full week of 2021 has been one for the history books, to put it mildly. Lottery-wise, hundreds of millions of dollars are now up for grabs in both Mega Millions and Powerball. Meanwhile, Lotto Texas continues to retain its dignity. And, on January 9, 2021, we saw the first lottery win of the year!

The lottery win, of course, was in Lotto Texas. Come on, now. If you won $7.75 million, would you turn it down? Anyway, with its prize won, the jackpot was reset to $5 million. Powerball crossed over into the ultra-rich territory. As the jackpot evaded players yet again, it grew to $550 million.

Lotto Texas

Stick By Your Australia Play

World War I, also known as The Great War, ended November 11, 1918. This day came to be known as Veterans’ Day in the United States, and Remembrance Day across the Commonwealth nations of Canada, New Zealand, and Australia. November 11, 2020 happened to fall on a lottery day this year. Lotto Texas and Powerball kept it classy. The rowdiest play, if it could be called that, was an encore for an Australia Play. With no one picking the six winning numbers for either Lotto Texas or Powerball, their respective jackpots grew to $8 million and $168 million.

Will Saturday night be filled with Pattern repeats or will other Patterns have their play?

The Australia Play Double Date

Without a doubt, Saturday is the most popular day of the week and if not, it’s pretty high up there. For most people, it means the very end of the week. It’s time to unwind, and after a week that seemed long and drawn out, we couldn’t be any more grateful for this day.

Lotto Texas and Powerball were certainly grateful for November 7, 2020! Both lotteries made it their business to partake in the art of the Australia Play this past Saturday night. With that came a bounce in the jackpots to $7.75 million and $158 million, respectively.

Three-Number Combinations  

After a long week, there wasn’t enough energy to put up repeating Three-Number Combinations.

Will at least one of these Australia Plays make an encore Wednesday night, or will Lotto Texas and Powerball have other plans?

Lotto Texas and the Boomerang Effect

This year has been crazy (in more ways than one) and things got crazier in the lottery world. It was on October 28, 2020, that Lotto Texas saw the return of the Australia Play! This special playback sent the prize leaping to $7 million.

Powerball came close to a playback but no go. The prize there also saw an increase; it jumped to $127 million.

Will Pattern repeats be how October ends for Lotto Texas and Powerball?

Different Flavors of Playback

The theme for October 24, 2020 was “Playback”. For the uninitiated or those who need a refresher, a playback occurs when either of the following conditions are met:

  1. An Australia Play: The Pattern, General Order, and Specific Order are the same, at least for Mega Millions and Powerball. For Lotto Texas, it would apply only to Pattern and Specific Order (no General Order).
  2. The Pattern, General Order, and Specific Order played on the same date. Like the Australia Play, the General Order is not applicable to Lotto Texas.

Saturday night saw both kinds of playback and was a boon for both Lotto Texas and Powerball! The intrepid players were thrown off their game and the prizes grew to $6.75 million and $116 million, respectively.

By the power of double playback action, Lotto Texas and Powerball are heading into the last week of October with plenty of momentum. Will it power them on to make even more jackpot gains?
