Mambos with Combos and the Australia Play Returns to Powerball

While the June 21st drawing may have seemed a bit underwhelming, the week went out with a bang. Both Lotto Texas and Powerball saw rarely played Combinations and Powerball saw yet another Australia Play.

Lotto Texas

The winning numbers for June 25th, 2016 for Lotto Texas were 8, 15, 17, 40, 42, and 46.

These numbers played in a {3-3} Pattern, which in fact last played on May 28th, 2016. The {3-3} Pattern has now played 114 times in the 1354 drawings, bringing it up to 8.42%. Given the {3-3} Pattern, the Specific Orders that are possible are

0 3 3

3 0 3

3 3 0

The June 24th Lotto Texas drawing saw the 3 0 3 Specific Order play, and it too previously appeared on May 28th, 2016. With that said, the 3 0 3 Specific Order has now played 38 times out of 114 drawings, or 33% of the time in which the {3-3} Pattern has played.

June 25th saw a Four-Number Combination in the form of 17, 40, 42, and 46.

Powerball

These numbers played in a {1-1-1-1-1-1} Pattern, which in fact played exactly one week ago on June 18th, 2016! This Pattern has now appeared in 8 out of 76 Powerball drawings, bringing it up to 10.52%. Given the {1-1-1-1-1-1} Pattern, the only possible General Order is [1-1-1-1-1-1] and the Specific Order is 1 1 1 1 1 1. Logically, the General Order and the Specific Order also appeared in the June 18th Powerball drawing. Just like Australia is both a country and a continent, the {1-1-1-1-1-1} Pattern is also a Specific Order. For those of you who have just started to check out our fair blog, we like to call such plays Australia Plays.

We also saw a Three-Number Combination in the form of 3, 27, and 69.

Looking at the week ahead, will Lotto Texas and Powerball bring more surprises in the form of rarely-seen Combinations? Will Powerball see an Australia Play Saturday three-peat?
