All four of these Combinations made their debut March 5th, 2016. The last Combination, 3, 27, 69, is also special in that it played another time. The last time we saw it was in the June 25th, 2016 drawing.

If Saturday night was anything to go by, 2019 looks to be an interesting year in the lottery world! Will either the {2-2-1-1} Pattern or the {3-2-1} Pattern make an appearance Wednesday night? Could another Four-Number Combination rear its head in Powerball?
