The Growths That Keep on Growing

Mega Millions got slapped with a reset Friday night. That left the lottery world with two large jackpots. After January 14, 2023, two large jackpots were still present. In fact, both Lotto Texas and Powerball’s jackpots dwarfed the Mega Millions one! Lotto Texas and Powerball’s respective jackpots grew to $31.25 million and $416 million.  

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

Lotto Texas maintained its large (for Lotto Texas) jackpot thanks to a {3-2-1} Pattern encore. With winning numbers 7, 25, 35, 37, 49 and 52, this Pattern has now played 1115 times.

Three-Number Combinations

There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations.

Of course, Lotto Texas and Powerball’s jackpots will have their date with the reset slap. Will Monday night buy them more time, or will that be the night when they come tumbling down?

The 13th Night was a Very Lucky Night

Whoever said Friday the 13th was unlucky? Sure, it was unlucky for Mega Millions, but who cares what it thinks? That jackpot was stirring up trouble and besides, someone was bound to take it down eventually. For one grand prize winner in Maine, and several million-dollar winners across the land, January 13, 2023 was a most lucky night indeed! Naturally, Mega Millions retreated, and the jackpot reset to $20 million.

General Lottery Analysis

The Pattern that put an end to the jackpot’s rampage was the {3-1-1-1} Pattern. With winning numbers 30, 43, 45, 46, 61 and MB 14, this Pattern has now played 159 times.

As Mega Millions licks its wounds, what Pattern will surface in Tuesday night’s drawing?

The Jackpot Takedown That Never Was

Mega Millions, Lotto Texas, and Powerball don’t have much in common. One thing they do have in common lately is how difficult it has been for anyone to claim their jackpots. Currently, one jackpot is worth over one billion dollars, and there’s another lottery that may be crazy enough to go for it. Meanwhile, the other lottery has  a much smaller, though just as powerful prize. Millions is millions, after all. In fact, Lotto Texas and Powerball  have much in common these days!

January 11, 2023 was a night that highlighted those commonalities. Of course, Lotto Texas and Powerball’s jackpots went unclaimed, and respectively rose to $30.75 million and $404 million. However, a funny thing happened on the way to rising jackpots.

Lotto Texas

The {3-2-1} Pattern made its 1114th appearance with winning numbers 4, 16, 33, 41, 52 and 53.

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

Powerball looked over Lotto Texas’s shoulder and thought playing the {3-2-1} Pattern was a bright idea. This Pattern made its 53rd appearance with 4, 8, 46, 47, 48 and PB 5.

Both the {3-2-1} Pattern and the [2-3-1] General Order were last seen December 3, 2022.

A {3-2-1} Pattern playback was close, but it wasn’t meant to be. Instead, Powerball decided to introduce the 2 0 0 3 0 1 Specific Order to the world! This Specific Order has now played in 4% of the 25 drawings where the General Order was [2-3-1]. The 2 0 0 3 0 1 Specific Order has played in 1.89% of the 53 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern and in 0.12% of all 832 drawings.

Does Saturday night mean more rising jackpots, or will at least one lottery be forced to reset?

The Power of Dogged Persistence

Either there’s a new bug going around the lottery world, or the lotteries share the same New Year’s resolution. What we’re referring to is the persistence of rising jackpots. Since the last few months of 2022, Mega Millions, Lotto Texas, and Powerball’s prizes kept rising. Mega Millions crossed the $1 billion threshold Friday, and although Lotto Texas and Powerball’s jackpots weren’t nearly as large, the hype was there all the same.

Neither the Lotto Texas nor Powerball jackpots could be brought down Saturday night. Nothing truly out of the ordinary was needed to boost their respective jackpots to $29.25 million and $340 million.

Mega Millions’ Billion-Dollar Song

Some of the best songs take a while to write. Mega Millions has been working on one since mid-October. Nearly three months later, that hard work paid off.

On January 6, 2023, the jackpot made it over the $1 billion mark! Players tried valiantly, but all failed to stop the jackpot from rising to $1.1 billion.

Three-Number Combinations

Mega Millions thought, “Repeating Three-Number Combinations? Who needs those when the jackpot is over a billion dollars? Besides, the playback was plenty.”

Does next week mean the jackpot will continue to rise, or will it sing its swan song?

They Just Keep Hangin’ On

A new year means new beginnings, right? Well, yes and no. “Yes” from the angle of starting a new hobby or kicking a bad habit, but those are easier said than done. Old habits are hard to break, and procrastinating is ever so tempting! For Lotto Texas and Powerball, 2023 has meant one thing so far: Let those jackpots rise.

Leaving off from last year, these lotteries’ jackpots continued to gain momentum Monday night. The night of January 4, 2023 told a similar story. No one could stop the Lotto Texas jackpot from rising to $28.75 million and Powerball’s rising to $325 million.

Only three days into the new year, and Mega Millions already made a grand entrance! Since October, many have tried and failed to claim the jackpot. Some came close, but in the game of lottery, “Almost doesn’t count.” Another night with no grand prize winner brought the jackpot up to $940 million.
