Saturday Belonged to the Playback

Here at Lottery Binge, we don’t just cover the winning numbers. For nearly two years, we’ve brought the scoop on Pattern streaks, and some of the madness beneath them. One such element is the playback. For our new readers, or for our readers who need a refresher, a playback occurs when the Pattern, General Order (not applicable to Lotto Texas), and Specific Order have appeared together in a previous lottery drawing. Lotto Texas delivered on Saturday night, and Powerball came close.

Lotto Texas

Now that there have been 1520 Lotto Texas drawings, this Pattern has played 11.1% of the time.

The 4 2 0 Specific Order, now with 34 appearances, has played in 20.1% of the 169 drawings where {4-2} was the winning Pattern. When looking at all 1520 drawings, this Specific Order has played 2.24% of the time.

Both the {4-2} Pattern and the 4 2 0 Specific Order previously played in the September 23rd, 2017 drawing.

Four-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Four-Number Combinations Saturday night.

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

The {3-2-1} Pattern made its 14th appearance with winning numbers 17, 21, 26, 47, 54, and PB 7. Note that unlike the {3-2-1} Pattern in Lotto Texas, this {3-2-1} Pattern is not common here.

Given that there have been 242 Powerball drawings, this Pattern has played in 5.79% of them.

With four appearances, the [3-2-1] General Order has played in 28.6% of the 14 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern. When looking at all 242 drawings, this Pattern has played 1.65% of the time.

Both the {3-2-1} Pattern and the [3-2-1] General Order were last seen in the November 29th, 2017.

What kept Powerball from seeing a playback was the debut of the 0 3 0 2 0 1 Specific Order. This Specific Order has now played in 25% of the four drawings where the [3-2-1] General Order has appeared. When looking at the 14 drawings where the {3-2-1} Pattern has appeared, this Specific Order has played 7.14% of the time. Finally, when looking at all 242 drawings, the 0 3 0 2 0 1 Specific Order has played 0.41% of the time.

Three-Number Combination(s)

The debut of a Specific Order was sufficient enough for Powerball in the “big play” department. There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations.

Will either Lotto Texas or Powerball end the month with a Pattern encore or even a playback?
