Sturdy Jackpot Foundation

A lottery jackpot is much like a house. Over time, the foundation wears away and if not shored up, the house collapses. Winning the jackpot is like knocking the house off its foundation. Unlike actual houses, lotteries can rebuild with every reset, so long as said lotteries continue to exist.

There were no signs of collapse in either Lotto Texas or Powerball January 16, 2021. Powerball, like Mega Millions, got closer to a billion-dollar jackpot. With the players thwarted yet again, the prize grew to $730 million. Lotto Texas remained respectable and quietly rose to $5.5 million.

Three-Number Combinations  

Repeating Three-Number Combinations were absent Saturday night.

We’re halfway through January and Powerball has yet to fall. As it goes with lotteries, such a fall is inevitable, and this one is going to be massive! Will it happen next week, or will Powerball’s jackpot become a member of the Billion Dollar Club?

Lottery Party Mix: 2020 Edition

Chex Party Mix is one of many Christmastime snacks. For those unfamiliar with Chex, it’s a cereal from the U.S. Like Rice Krispies, it appears to be more popular as the key ingredient of a snack rather than part of a complete breakfast.

Now, a party mix wouldn’t be a mix without other goodies, would it? Chex can be mixed with all sorts of things, like pretzels, marshmallows, peanuts. It’s your choice what goes into the mix!

Lotto Texas and Powerball made their own party mix December 19, 2020. One lottery saw a Pattern three-peat, and another saw a similar spread. Throw in repeating Three and Four-Number Combinations and well sir, you got yourself a lottery party mix! To make it sweeter, both Lotto Texas and Powerball received a boost in their jackpots. The respective prizes increased to $6.5 million and $321 million.

Similar Spread

The spread for this past Saturday’s numbers was 05:02:09:09. This is in fact similar to the spread from October 14, 2015. That night, the winning numbers were 15, 20, 29, 31, 40 and PB1; their spread was 05:09:02:09. Notice how that even though the differences between numbers were the same, the orders were different.

Three-Number Combinations

The Powerball jackpot continues soaring to great heights, and the drawing before Christmas looks to be one for the ages. Question is, will it be the jackpots growing once more, or someone winning a coveted prize?

Saturday Night Boost

Saturday night is, without a doubt, the busiest night of the week. It’s the height of the weekend and whether it’s drinking or staying up to stream movies, it’s about letting loose. And of course, that extra energy needs to be out of your system before you start yet another work (or school) week!

The Lotto Texas and Powerball that we saw earlier in the week were absent December 12, 2020. Both lotteries were more active, and that energy boost also boosted their jackpots. Lotto Texas rose to $6 million and Powerball ascended to $287 million.

Happy Thanksgiving to all our U.S. readers. Stay safe and use good judgement!

Many of us have “those relatives”. They seem to only come by during the holiday season, gifting you and the family with something cool or hoarding the pie. Or you’ve only met them once or twice when you were a little kid and don’t see them again until several years later (if ever).  

The Patterns that played in both Lotto Texas and Powerball on November 25, 2020 were much like those relatives. These rarely seen Patterns had their say and boy did they have a lot to say! So much, in fact, that the jackpot climbed to $9 million in Lotto Texas and $216 million in Powerball.

A {3-2-1} Kind of Night

3, 2, 1. These are the last numbers in a countdown. In the lottery world, they hold a special significance, for they make up a Pattern. Its presence, though, isn’t uniform. Lotto Texas is visited by this Pattern the most and doesn’t get nearly as much play in Powerball (or Mega Millions).

But, on November 21, 2020, the {3-2-1} Pattern put in double time and paid a visit to both Lotto Texas and Powerball! With that, the jackpots grew once more. Lotto Texas grew to $8.75M and Powerball crossed $200 million ($202 million).

The Trendy Repeating Four-Number Combination

The repeating Four-Number Combination is no stranger to Lotto Texas. Where things get messy is when such a Combination appears in either Mega Millions or Powerball. Last weekend saw Powerball catch the bug and on November 20, 2020, it spread to Mega Millions. With the repeating Four-Number Combination came a quartet of repeating Three-Number Combinations (naturally speaking) and a prize that jumped to $200 million.

This was in addition to a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern encore!

The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern encore was made possible by winning numbers 26, 33, 45, 61, 68 and MB 17. This Pattern has now played 273 times.

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?

Revenge of the Repeating Four-Number Combinations

Today’s Lottery Binge is brought to you by repeating Four-Number Combinations. Oh sure, they tend to happen in Lotto Texas, but what happens if at least one Four-Number Combination is spotted in Powerball? You get bombarded, that’s what!

That’s not all that happened November 14, 2020, either. No one was able to match the six magic numbers in either Lotto Texas or Powerball. Naturally, their respective jackpots climbed to $8.25 million and $179 million.

Will Powerball continue to pal around with repeating Four-Number Combinations in the week ahead?

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.
