September in Passing

Lotto Texas and Powerball paid their respects to September as we enter the second (full) week of October. Both lotteries saw Patterns, not to mention their respective Specific Order and General Order, play last month. The October 8th drawings also gave us a surprise or two, not to mention a reprieve.

Lotto Texas

Saturday’s drawing saw the {4-2} Pattern, making its first appearance since the September 17th drawing. The winning numbers were 7, 15, 44, 52, 53, and 54.

With 153 appearances, and 1384 Lotto Texas drawings to date, the {4-2} Pattern has now played 11.1% of the time.

The 2 0 4 Specific Order made its 19th appearance, the first since the September 14th drawing. Out of the 153 drawings that have {4-2} as the winning Pattern, the 2 0 4 Specific Order has played 12.4% of the time. When we look at all 1384 drawings, this becomes 1.37%.

We also saw not one, but two Four-Number Combinations make an encore appearance:

  • 15, 52, 53, and 54, which first played May 30th, 2012, and
  • 7, 44, 53, and 54 which first played November 21st, 2015.

The Pattern Tango between {2-1-1-1-1} and {2-2-1-1} did not take place last night. Instead, we got to see another Pattern get a chance to play. That lucky Pattern was {3-1-1-1}. The winning numbers were thanks to 3, 54, 61, 64, 68, and PB 9.

Saturday’s drawing marked the 15th appearance of the {3-1-1-1} Pattern, its first since September 21st. Out of the 106 Powerball drawings, the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has now played 14.2% of the time.

The [1-1-3-1] General Order made its 6th appearance, and it too previously played in the September 21st drawing. Percentage wise, it comes in at 40% of the 15 drawings where {3-1-1-1} is the winning Pattern, and 5.66% of all drawings.

The 1 0 0 3 1 1 Specific Order made its world debut. With that said, the 1 0 0 3 1 1 Specific Order has occurred in 16.67% of the 6 drawings that have [1-1-3-1] as the General Order of the evening. When looking at the 15 drawings that have {3-1-1-1} as the winning Pattern, this becomes 6.667%, and 0.94% when looking at all 106 drawings.

We saw the Three-Number Combination 3, 61, and 64 make an encore appearance last night. The first time we saw it was earlier this year in the January 16th drawing.

As we look ahead to next week, will we continue to see Patterns that don’t get much airtime, or will the Pattern Tango resume? Will we see debuts of new Specific Orders?
