Monstrous and Mischievous Jackpots

The “January lull”, for the most part, didn’t exist for Lotto Texas and Powerball this year. A month that saw a repeating Five-Number Combination and a similar spread saw more madness Saturday night with a Pattern three-peat. Not only was there a three-peat to contend with, a not-so-common Pattern wanted in on the action and one lottery’s (*cough*Powerball’s*cough*) monstrous jackpot grew ever larger to $394 million. Lotto Texas, normally the “classy” one, kept up its mischievous streak with a prize that grew to $5.75 million.

Three-Number Combination(s)

A towering jackpot was all Powerball needed to make its presence known.

Powerball goes forward with a monster jackpot and a potential Pattern streak. Will either of these hold going into Wednesday night?

Encore and Hops

Today’s title means one of two things. Either Lottery Binge has decided to venture into the world of craft beer brewing (and should quit before even getting started) or there was an Australia Play and a Pattern encore. We’re going to go with the latter.

This past Wednesday night was also good for fans of repeating Four-Number and Three-Number Combinations. As busy as the night was, there were no grand prize winners in either lottery. Lotto Texas’s jackpot climbed to $5.5 million while Powerball waltzed into $373 million.

Will a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern three-peat in Powerball send its jackpot to $400 million or close to it? Could Lotto Texas see an Australia Play encore?

One Jackpot Falls. Another Stands

The ride of a jackpot high has to end sometime, and on January 15th, 2020, that time came for one lottery. Lotto Texas came into the new year riding on the high of its increasing jackpot. With the $17.5 million prize now won, the jackpot reset itself to $5 million. The Powerball jackpot stood firm, rising to $321 million.

Part of a Balanced Lottery Diet

One week ago, Mega Millions found itself in the grip of a lull. That Friday night was your “standard” drawing. No encores or other big plays to speak of, and no repeating Three-Number Combinations.

Oh, what a difference a week makes!

We’re not sure what got into Mega Millions this past Friday night, but it decided to indulge in a diet rich in repeating Three-Number Combinations. This was in addition to a {2-2-1-1} Pattern encore. With no one able to match all six numbers, the jackpot rose to $91 million.

The Combination you see above made its debut in the May 29th, 2015 drawing. If you recall, the last time we saw a repeating Four-Number Combination in Mega Millions was Christmas Eve 2019. How often do we get to witness two repeating Four-Number Combinations within the span of a few weeks?

Three-Number Combinations

Naturally, this repeating Four-Number Combination spawned four repeating Three-Number Combinations:

  • 27, 49, 66
  • 27, 49, MB 2
  • 27, 66, MB 2
  • 49, 66, MB 2

These Combinations debuted in the May 29th drawing mentioned earlier.

Four repeating Three-Number Combinations would be a good place to stop, but Mega Millions had another idea. Why stop at just four when it could have four more?

Will Mega Million continue to include massive helpings of repeating Three-Number Combinations next week?

“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.

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.

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.

Will the jackpots for Lotto Texas and Powerball continue their rise through the Christmas season?

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.
