March Comes Roaring In

March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb, or so it’s said. The March 1st drawings for Lotto Texas and Powerball lived up to that saying. They came roaring in with repeating Four-Number and Three-Number Combinations, respectively, and both lotteries saw their most commonly played Patterns. Powerball’s most commonly seen Pattern got an extra boost with a three-peat appearance.

Wednesday’s winning numbers were 3, 24, 33, 34, 45, and 51. With 740 appearances, the {3-2-1} Pattern remained second-to-none.

The 1 3 2 Specific Order made its 109th appearance, and has now played in 14.7% of the 740 drawings where the {3-2-1} Pattern has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 7.65% of all drawings. Interestingly, the 1 3 2 Specific Order previously played exactly one month prior in the February 1st drawing.

The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern continues to reign supreme after its three-peat appearance. This time around, the winning numbers were 10, 16, 40, 52, 55, and PB 17.

The [1-1-1-2-1] General Order made its 19th appearance, and has now played in 37.3% of the 51 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 12.9% of all drawings. This General Order, like the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern, was last seen in the February 25th drawing.

Making its second-ever appearance, the 1 1 1 2 0 1 Specific Order has now played in 10.5% of the 19 drawings where the [1-1-1-2-1] General Order has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 3.92% of the 51 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 1.36% of all drawings. The 1 1 1 2 0 1 Specific Order made its debut in the October 22nd, 2016 drawing.

The repeating Three-Number Combination of the evening was 40, 52, and PB 17.

The Combination 40-52-PB 17 is highlighted in the red box.

We first saw this Combination in the June 22nd, 2016 drawing.

Will Lotto Texas see three more Four-Number Combinations repeat on Saturday? Will Powerball’s {2-1-1-1-1} go in for a fourth consecutive appearance?
