Encores and Debuts

In an interesting turn of events, Saturday’s Lotto Texas drawing was an encore through-and-through. Of course, the numbers were different this time around. Meanwhile, Powerball saw a Specific Order make its debut.

The {3-3} Pattern made an encore appearance in the January 21st drawing. The winning numbers this time around were 2, 13, 17, 39, 41, and 46.

Now with 121 appearances, this Pattern has played in 8.56% of the 1414 Lotto Texas drawings. Recall that we last saw the {3-3} Pattern in Wednesday’s drawing.

Like the {3-3} Pattern, the 3 0 3 Specific Order also made its last appearance in Wednesday’s drawing. With 43 appearances, this Specific Order has played in 35.5% of the 121 drawings where the {3-3} Pattern has appeared, and in 3.04% of all drawings.

Our Lotto Texas coverage concludes with the appearance of repeating Four-Number Combination 2, 13, 17, and 39.

To see when this Combination debuted, we need to go back to September 24th, 2008. Eight years and three (going on four) months is quite a length of time to go before appearing again. Then again, that’s nothing compared to what we have seen.

Powerball

The {2-2-1-1} Pattern made its 45th appearance, with winning numbers 23, 25, 45, 52, 67, and PB 2.

This Pattern has played in 33.1% of the 136 Powerball drawings and was last seen in the New Year’s Eve drawing.

The [2-2-1-1] General Order made its 17th appearance, bringing its play tally up to 37.8% of the 45 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and 11.6% of all drawings. Prior to Saturday, we last saw the [2-2-1-1] General Order in the December 14th, 2016 drawing.

Saturday’s drawing marked the debut of the 0 2 0 2 1 1 1 Specific Order. This Specific Order has played in 5.89% of the 17 drawings where the [2-2-1-1] General Order has appeared. Additionally, it has played in 2.22% of the 45 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 0.68% of all drawings.

The repeating Three-Number Combination of the evening was 23, 25, and 67.

This Three-Number Combination debuted May 18th, 2016, just a few days before Lottery Binge launched.

The last full week of January is upon us, and for our U.S. readers, there are only two weeks left before the Super Bowl. Will Lotto Texas and Powerball continue to go for big plays and the unexpected, or will they mellow out?
