There Be No Fools

In times like these, we could all use a good laugh. Whether it’s sitcoms or jokes, cartoons or pranks, we’d go nuts if we never stopped to laugh at the absurdities of “real life”.

Lotto Texas and Powerball got in a laugh or two Wednesday night. Neither of them showered us with Pattern encores, but there was a repeating Combination of the Three or Four-Number kind somewhere. Even though the lotteries were taking it easy for the most part, they had enough energy to boost the jackpot to $10.5 million in Lotto Texas and $180 million in Powerball.

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.

The Playback, the Encore, and the Combination Madness

The world is currently in the grip of a pandemic. Closures and cancellations are happening left and right, work-at-home policies are being enacted, and toilet paper might as well be gold. Now is the time to plan ahead, practice good hygiene and use common sense. When others are losing their cool, don’t lose yours.

Considering all that’s happening, lotteries are the lucky ones. After all, they don’t worry themselves with illnesses or economies. Their biggest concern is their jackpots and what to do with them. Should they throw players a bone and let them win, or is it more fun to thwart them? Sure, the players will be spitting nails and gnashing their teeth, but many of them will come back and try again.

In a move that surprised (almost) no one, Lotto Texas and Powerball opted to thwart the players Wednesday night. This sent their respective jackpots to $9 million and $120 million.

Change of Seasons, Change of Patterns

Seasons have a set time when they appear and a set time when they leave. They cycle through the year, and even when one season “intrudes” on another, they generally respect each other.

Lotteries are much less cordial. Patterns and wild plays come and go as they please. An occasional Pattern streak may occur, but the order of things is “madness”.

Wednesday night saw one Pattern stick by its lottery and another went for something different. Both choices sent the jackpots upward. Lotto Texas settled into a nice $8.5 million and Powerball reached the $100 million benchmark.

No, it’s not time to spring forward; that’s next weekend.

What took place this weekend was a little thing called “Leap Day”. An extra day in February meant more time for Lotto Texas and Powerball to simultaneously offer riches and frustrate players. If the results of February 29th, 2020 are anything to go by, the lotteries did just that!
