That Plucky {4-2} Pattern

The lottery momentum continued the night of February 11th. For as long as Lottery Binge has been online, this is the second time we’ve seen the {4-2} Pattern appear not once, not twice, but three times in a row. Powerball on the other hand simmered down a bit.

The {4-2} Pattern three-peat on Saturday night was thanks to winning numbers 24, 25, 26, 29, 41, and 53.

This Pattern has now appeared 160 times, and has played in 11.3% of the 1420 Lotto Texas drawings. Recall that the {4-2} Pattern was last seen in Wednesday’s drawing.

The 0 4 2 Specific Order made its 31st appearance, the first since the September 17th, 2016 drawing. As of Saturday’s drawing, this Specific Order has now played in 19.375% of the 160 drawings where the {4-2} Pattern has appeared, and 2.18% of all drawings.

One observation we’ve made is that with the past two consecutive appearances of the {4-2} Pattern, there’ve been at least one repeating Four-Number Combination. Saturday night was no exception. The Four-Number Combination 24, 25, 29, and 41 made its second appearance, after having debuted in the November 19th, 2014 drawing.

It’s not often that we see the {4-2} Pattern make a three-peat appearance.

Powerball

Powerball’s {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern retained its lead as the most commonly seen Pattern. The 48th appearance was represented by winning numbers 5, 9, 17, 37, 64, and PB 2.
