On Familiar Ground

Compared to what we’ve seen for the past few drawings, Lotto Texas and Powerball saw a cool-down on November 5th. How much of a cool-down? Let’s just say that what we saw was *very* common, Pattern-wise, at least.

Lotto Texas

The {3-2-1} Pattern made an encore appearance Saturday, bringing its total number of appearances to 725.The winning numbers were 4, 27, 30, 48, 47, and 49.

Out of the 1392 Lotto Texas drawings to date, the {3-2-1} Pattern has played 52.1% of the time, and holds the title of Most Commonly Played Pattern with no competition. Recall that we last saw this Pattern in Wednesday’s drawing.

The 1 2 3 Specific Order made its 135th appearance, its first since the October 19th, 2016 drawing. This Specific Order has played in 18.6% of the 725 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern. When we look at all 1392 drawings, this becomes 9.70% of the time.

Powerball

The {2-1-1-1-1} made its 40th appearance, its first since the October 22nd, 2016 drawing. This was thanks to winning numbers 21, 30, 50, 51, 69, and PB 8.

This Pattern has played in 35.1% of the 114 drawings and has once again reclaimed the title of Most Commonly Played Pattern in Powerball.  Whether this is just the rumblings of another Powerball Pattern Tango is anyone’s guess.

Moving on to the General Order, we saw [1-1-2-1-1] make its ninth appearance, the first since the September 17th, 2016 drawing. The [1-1-2-1-1] General Order has played in 22.5% of the 40 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. This becomes 7.89% of the time when we take all 114 drawings into account.

The most stand-out feature of the evening was the debut of the 0 1 1 2 1 1 Specific Order. This Specific Order has now played in 11.1% of the drawings where [1-1-2-1-1] was the General Order of the evening. When looking at the 40 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the Pattern, the 0 1 1 2 1 1 Specific Order has played 2.5% of the time. Finally, when looking at all 114 drawings, this becomes 0.88% of the time.

As we walk into another week bound for the history books, will Lotto Texas or Powerball break any records? Will the Powerball Pattern Tango resurface once again?
