A Night of Polar Opposites

The December 14th, 2016 Lotto Texas and Powerball drawings couldn’t be any more different. Lotto Texas saw a Pattern that has played a respectable amount of times. Meanwhile, Powerball saw a Pattern that plays quite often, and has been known to go back-and-forth with another Pattern in terms of the most number of times played.

Lotto Texas

Wednesday’s Lotto Texas drawing gave us the {4-2} Pattern, brought about by winning numbers 29, 35, 38, 39, 49, and 53.

Now with 154 appearances, the {4-2} Pattern has now played in approximately 11% of the 1403 Lotto Texas drawings. Prior to Wednesday, we last saw this Pattern a couple of months ago; October 8th, to be precise.

Our Lotto Texas coverage concludes with the 28th appearance of the 0 2 4 Specific Order. This Specific Order has now played in 18.2% of the 154 drawings where the {4-2} Pattern was the winning Pattern and in 2% of all Lotto Texas drawings. The 0 2 4 Specific Order previously played in the May 25th, 2016 drawing.

Powerball

Once again, the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has tied with the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern when it comes to the number of times played. The 42nd appearance of the {2-2-1-1} Pattern is thanks to winning numbers 18, 26, 37, 39, 66, and PB 15.

The {2-2-1-1} Pattern has now played in 33.6% of the 125 Powerball drawings. We last saw this Pattern about a couple of weeks ago in the December 3rd drawing.

The [2-2-1-1] General Order made its 16th appearance, and it too was last seen in the December 3rd drawing. This General Order has now appeared in 38.1% of the 42 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 1.28% of all Powerball drawings.

Finally, we come to the 0 2 2 0 1 1 Specific Order, which has now played three times. As of Wednesday’s drawing, this Specific Order has played in 18.75% of the 16 drawings where [2-2-1-1] was the General Order of the evening, 7.14% of the 42 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern played, and 1.28% of all drawings. To see when the 0 2 2 0 1 1 Specific Order previously played, we need to go back to the June 11th, 2016 drawing.

With the last (sane) weekend of Christmas shopping coming up, what gifts will Lotto Texas and Powerball leave for us on Saturday?
