“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.

The Mega Millions Coverage Plan

It’s a new year, but some things never change. There’s always the need and the desire to earn big bucks. No worries. Mega Millions has you covered.

This past Tuesday was most likely your second or even first day back from the holidays. Already, you’re asking yourself, “Is it the weekend yet?!” No, no it’s not, but no worries. Mega Millions has you covered!

Based on the results of this past Tuesday’s drawing, Mega Millions only needed the weekend to rest up. There was a repeating Three-Number Combination, enough to shake off the lull. No one was able to match all six winning numbers; this sent the jackpot to $80 million.

General Lottery Analysis

The winning numbers for January 7th, 2020 were 25, 40, 41, 52, 56, and MB 21. This marked the 145th appearance of the {2-2-1-1} Pattern.

This Combination made its debut in the January 22nd, 2016 drawing.

Mega Millions took to heart the idea of easing back into a routine. We’ll see if Friday night brings more repeating Three-Number Combinations or a rising jackpot. A {2-2-1-1} Pattern encore wouldn’t be out of the question, either!

Weekend at Lotteries’

The first weekend of 2020 got off a quiet start in the lottery world. For instance, “sister” lottery Mega Millions went into hibernation mode this past Friday. The payoff was a larger jackpot heading into Tuesday. Now, how long that will last is anyone’s guess.

Lotto Texas and Powerball copied their “sister” and decided to take it easy. Powerball was able to exert a bit more energy though, with a couple of showings from repeating Three-Number Combinations. That was overshadowed by the jackpot rising to $258 million. Lotto Texas may have been at rest, but it wasn’t about to pass up the opportunity to send its jackpot to $16.5 million.

Mega Millions in “Party Hard, Rest Hard”

Another holiday season has come and gone. A collective groan erupts far and wide as it’s time to get back into the work/school routine. Instead of groaning, Mega Millions yawned.

The Christmas-New Year’s timeframe was a busy one for this lottery. Christmas Eve saw a whopping seven repeating Three-Number Combinations! Nothing like that happened this past Friday. The jackpot rose to $69 million and Mega Millions cocooned itself in a blanket as it took a well-earned rest.

Three-Number Combination

Part of resting up means no repeating Three-Number Combinations.

Mega Millions is off to a quiet start to the year, but does that mean the lull will continue in the foreseeable future?

The Future is {3-2-1}

Happy New Year, everyone! Some ways to start the new year include singing “Auld Lang Syne” (poorly), drinking, binge watching movies, watching the Rose Bowl, and playing lottery. Now, one of these things isn’t like the others. Having an opportunity to win millions of dollars on the very first day of a new year doesn’t happen on years that begin on Sunday, Monday, or Thursday.

New Year’s Day 2020 had two opportunities: Lotto Texas and Powerball. They kicked off the year by mostly keeping to themselves. This (mostly) quiet night saw the jackpots rise to $16.25 million in Lotto Texas and $237 million in Powerball.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

Lotto Texas began the new year the same way the old one ended: with the {3-2-1} Pattern. The Pattern encore was brought to you by 3, 4, 13, 19, 35, and 37.

January is often seen as a “lull”. The Hallowthankmas season is over and it’ll be a while yet before Valentine’s Day. Will Lotto Texas and Powerball have a quiet month, or will this be a month of Pattern streaks and snowballing jackpots?

The {4-1-1} on New Year’s Eve

New Year’s Eve is a time of reflection and a time to party. Drinks, movies, games, all these are well and good, but no celebration is complete without fireworks! Mega Millions said “Adios!” to 2019 with a fireworks display of its own by showcasing an uncommonly seen Pattern and an entourage of repeating Three-Number Combinations. As the fireworks show ended, the players were left with a jackpot that climbed to $60 million.

The Great Hallowthankmas Cool Down: Mega Millions Edition

Another Hallowthankmas season has come and gone. The Christmas decorations are coming down and everyone is getting ready for the new year. That is, unless Christmas Eve was spent bouncing off the walls and partying like no tomorrow.

Take Mega Millions for instance. It had a heyday Christmas Eve, with repeating Combinations of the Four and Three-Number kind. That {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern encore was the setup for a three-peat, so one would think. This past Friday was, all things considered, much quieter. With no grand prize winners, the jackpot rose to $55 million.

It’s a Lottery Kind of Christmas

Christmas 2019 was a doubleheader lottery-wise! Lotto Texas and Powerball may not have the power to bring Peace on Earth and Goodwill To Men ™, but they had the power to bring merriment and hope. Winning millions of dollars would make an excellent gift at anytime of the year. But, as is the paradoxical nature of lotteries, Lotto Texas and Powerball brought great joy…and great sorrow. With no grand prizes claimed in either lottery, their respective jackpots rose to $14.75 million and $200 million.
