Repeats! Repeats Everywhere

True to form, the October 15th Lotto Texas and Powerball drawings were full of energy. What better way to mark the halfway point of the month than the encore of Patterns that played on Wednesday? To add even more whipped cream to this sundae, there were Combinations that played for the first time in years, and a Combination that first played not too long ago.

Lotto Texas

The {4-1-1} Pattern made an encore appearance, thanks to winning numbers 2, 7, 12, 15, 24, and 47.

With 155 appearances, and 1386 Lotto Texas drawings thus far, the {4-1-1} Pattern has played 11.2% of the time.

The 4 1 1 Specific Order made its 49th appearance, and unlike the {4-1-1} Pattern did not appear in the October 12th drawing. Instead, we have to go back in the early throes of summer to find when this Specific Order previously played: June 1st, 2016. With that said, the 4 1 1 Specific Order has now played in 31.6% of the 155 drawings that have {4-1-1} as the winning Pattern. Taking all 1386 drawings into account, we’re looking at 3.54%.

Saturday’s drawing gave us two Four-Number Combinations that haven’t played in quite some time. One of them played almost ten years ago. These Combinations were:

  • 2, 7, 15, and 24, which first played on October 28th, 2006, and
  • 2, 12, 15, and 24, which first played on August 30th, 2008

Powerball

Just like Lotto Texas, the Powerball Pattern also made an encore appearance. What’s more is that this particular encore is a three-peat. The {3-1-1-1} Pattern’s three-peat was provided by winning numbers 23, 49, 57, 64, 67, and PB 20.

Making its 17th appearance, the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has played in 15.7% of the 108 Powerball drawings.

The [1-1-3-1] General Order, although not making an encore, did make a previous appearance not too long ago in the October 8th drawing. Having said that, the [1-1-3-1] General Order has played in 41.2% of the 7 drawings that {3-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. When we look at all 108 drawings, this becomes 6.48%.

The 0 1 0 1 3 1 Specific Order played for the second time ever and we have to go back a couple of months to August 10th to see when it first played. Out of the 7 drawings with [1-1-3-1] as the General Order, the 0 1 0 1 3 1 Specific Order has played 28.6% of the time. When we look at the 17 drawings that have {3-1-1-1} as the winning Pattern, this becomes 11.8%, and 1.85% when looking at all 108 drawings.

The Three-Number Combination of 23, 64, and 67 made its second appearance, and like the 0 1 0 1 3 1 Specific Order, it too played for the first time in the August 10th drawing.

As the days grow shorter and the World Series kicks it into high gear, will the {4-1-1} go for a three-peat in Lotto Texas? Will Powerball see a four-peat in {3-1-1-1}?
