3-2-New

Any night where a Five-Number Combination repeats in Lotto Texas is going to be a tough act to follow. After this past Saturday, it wouldn’t have been unusual for Wednesday night to have been much quieter. If by “quiet”, it meant the second appearance of an uncommonly seen Pattern in the space of 11 days in Lotto Texas, or the debut of a Specific Order in Powerball, then April 19th had a quiet night, alright.

Lotto Texas

The not-so-often-seen {3-3} Pattern made its 124th appearance, with winning numbers 3, 4, 13, 22, 23, and 32.

Winning Texas Lottery numbers

With 1439 Lotto Texas drawings to date, this Pattern has played in 8.62% of them, and was last seen in the April 8th drawing about a week-and-a-half ago.

Now with 38 appearances, the 3 3 0 Specific Order has played in 30.6% of the 124 drawings where the {3-3} Pattern has appeared. This becomes 2.64% when looking at all 1439 drawings. To see when the 3 3 0 Specific Order previously played, refer to the October 22nd, 2016 drawing.

Another big development in Lotto Texas was the repeat appearance of two Four-Number Combinations. The Combinations this time around were

  • 3, 4, 23, 32, which debuted on December 17th, 2008 and
  • 3, 4, 22, 23, which debuted on November 29th, 2014

Powerball

Powerball managed to take some of Lotto Texas’s thunder Wednesday night. The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern made an encore appearance, with winning numbers 1, 19, 37, 40, 52, and PB 15.

With 58 appearances to date, this Pattern has played in 36.02% of the 161 drawings. Recall that this Pattern previously played in this past Saturday’s drawing.

Making its 13th appearance, the [1-1-2-1-1] General Order has played in 22.4% of the 58 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 8.07% of all 161 drawings. Prior to Wednesday, the [1-1-2-1-1] General Order previously played in the April 8th drawing 11 days ago.

Perhaps the biggest development in Powerball was the debut of the 1 1 2 1 0 1 Specific Order. This Specific Order has now played in 7.69% of the 13 drawings where the [1-1-2-1-1] General Order appeared. When taking the 58 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern appeared, this becomes 1.72%, and 0.62% overall.

Will there be a major upset in one of the Saturday night drawings, or will it be a “normal” night?

They Came in Pairs

Tuesday, that day that’s one less to worry about before Friday, and of course, one of the nights when a Mega Millions drawing takes place. Speaking of which, there were no Pattern encores that night, nor did any Specific Orders make their debut. Nonetheless, there were a couple of developments that caught the attention of this blog. One such development was the appearance of two repeating Three-Number Combinations. The other development wasn’t so obvious.

The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern remained the most commonly seen Pattern, with Tuesday night’s drawing bringing the number of appearances up to 149. The winning numbers were 8, 29, 30, 43, 64, and MB 6.

Winning Mega Millions numbers.

This Pattern has played in roughly 40.8% of the 365 Mega Millions drawings, and previously played in the April 7th drawing about a week-and-a-half ago.

Having now made 44 appearances, the [1-2-1-1-1] General Order has played in 29.5% of the 149 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared. This statistic becomes 12.1% when looking at all 365 drawings. The [1-2-1-1-1] played alongside the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern in the April 7th drawing described earlier.

The 1 2 1 0 1 1 Specific Order made its 10th appearance, meaning it has now played in 22.7% of the 44 drawings where the [1-2-1-1-1] General Order has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 6.71% of the 149 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 2.74% of all 365 drawings. Date-wise, this Specific Order did not play alongside the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern and the [1-2-1-1-1] General Order. Prior to Tuesday, the last time the 1 2 1 0 1 1 Specific Order played was in the February 21st, 2017 drawing.

The repeating Three-Number Combinations of the evening were as follows:

The repeating Three-Number Combinations are in the same row (this time…)

What will Friday’s Mega Millions drawing have in store? Will there be more repeating Three-Number Combinations? Will the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern go for an encore appearance?

Golden Explosion

The night before Easter was a busy one, with Lotto Texas seeing the lion’s share of the action. There was a Pattern encore, and a repeat appearance of a Five-Number Combination. The last time such an occurrence was covered on our blog was over six months ago. Talk about uncommon!

Lotto Texas

Right off the heels of Wednesday’s drawing, the {3-2-1} Pattern made its 748th appearance in the April 15th drawing. The winning numbers were 2, 11, 36, 40, 42, and 53.

Winning Lotto Texas numbers.

This reigning Pattern has now played in 52% of the 1438 Lotto Texas drawings so far.

Making its 111th appearance, the 2 1 3 Specific Order has now played in 14.8% of the 748 drawings where the {3-2-1} Pattern has appeared. This statistic becomes 7.72% when taking all 1438 drawings into account. Prior to Saturday, this Specific Order previously played in the January 28th, 2017 drawing.

The big draw of the evening was the repeat appearance of the Five-Number Combination 2, 36, 40, 42, and 53.

Five-Number Combination highlighted in red box.

Now, the key thing to remember when dealing with a Five-Number Combination is that there are five Four-Number Combinations that repeat as well. The Combinations were as follows:

  1. ) 36, 40, 42, 53
  2. ) 2, 40, 42, 53
  3. ) 2, 36, 42, 53
  4. ) 2, 36 50, 53
  5. ) 2, 36, 40, 42
The resulting Four-Number Combinations (blue box)

All of the above Combinations made their debut in the August 28th, 2002 drawing. To put things in perspective, Wikipedia was in its infancy and cell phones were becoming more affordable. Smart phones? Forget about ‘em.

 Powerball

In contrast to Lotto Texas, Powerball didn’t see any repeating Combinations, nor did its {3-2-1} Pattern make an encore. Wouldn’t that have been something? However, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern retained its position as the most commonly seen Pattern. The 57th appearance was marked by winning numbers 5, 22, 26, 45, 61, and PB 13.

Winning Powerball numbers.

The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has played in 35.625% of the 160 Powerball drawings, and previously played in the April 8th drawing exactly one week prior.

The [1-2-1-1-1] General Order made its 15th appearance, and has now played in 26.3% of the 57 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared. When looking at all 160 drawings, this statistic becomes 9.375%. This General Order was seen two weeks prior in the April 1st drawing. No foolin’.

Last, and certainly not least, the 1 2 0 1 1 1 Specific Order made its third appearance. This Specific Order has played in 20% of the 15 drawings where the [1-2-1-1-1] General Order appeared, 5.26% of the 57 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and 1.875% of all 160 drawings. Prior to Saturday, the last time the 1 2 0 1 1 1 Specific Order was seen was in the May 7th, 2016 drawing.

Will Powerball grab a piece of the action in the week ahead, or will Lotto Texas continue to be the most active?

Rollercoaster Night

Posts that analyze Saturday night results are truly something here at Lottery Binge. There’s more to it than just two distinct lotteries having their own drawings.  Lotto Texas and Powerball have their moments when they both have blowout appearances, and others when they both keep it low-key. Sometimes, like what happened on April 8th, neither of these scenarios play out. Instead, we had one lottery where an uncommon Pattern played, and another where a very commonly played Pattern took the reins.

Lotto Texas

The not often seen {3-3} Pattern made its 123rd appearance with winning numbers 10, 11, 12, 47, 48, and 52.

Winning Texas Lottery numbers.

As there have been 1436 Lotto Texas drawings to date, this Pattern has now played approximately 9.14% of the time. Prior to Saturday, the {3-3} Pattern previously played in the February 15th, 2017 drawing.

On the Specific Order side of things, 3 0 3 made its 45th appearance. This Specific Order has now played in 36.6% of the 123 drawings where the {3-3} Pattern has appeared, and in 3.13% of all drawings. Like the {3-3} Pattern, the 3 0 3 was last seen on February 15th.

Lotto Texas also gifted us with the repeating Four-Number Combination 10, 11, 12, and 47.

The repeating Four-Number Combo is highlighted.

This Combination made its debut near the end of last year in the December 28th, 2016 drawing.

Powerball

The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern is the most commonly seen Pattern in Powerball, and held onto its reign with winning numbers 23, 36, 51, 53, 60, and PB 15.

Winning Powerball numbers.

Now with 56 appearances, this Pattern has now played in 35.4% of the 158 Powerball drawings thus far. The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern previously played in the April 1st drawing one week prior.

Next, the [1-1-2-1-1] General Order made its 12th appearance, its first since the March 29th, 2017 drawing. This General Order has played in approximately 21.4% of the 56 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 7.59% of all drawings.

Finally, the 0 1 1 2 1 1 Specific Order made its second-ever appearance. This Specific Order has now played in 16.67% of the 12 drawings where the [1-1-2-1-1] General Order has appeared. Continuing onward, we see that this Specific Order has also played in 3.57% of the 56 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 1.27% of all Powerball drawings. The 0 1 1 2 1 1 Specific Order made its debut in the November 5th, 2016 drawing.

Looking to the week ahead, will any Pattern streaks be established, or will even rarer Patterns appear?

 

Put on Repeat

Mega Millions, a Friday night ritual for millions of people. Lotteries and rituals are similar in that repetition is king. Now and then, a Specific Order will make its debut in Mega Millions, but that doesn’t happen often. How repetitious was the April 7th drawing? For starters, Tuesday’s winning Pattern made an encore appearance, and there was a repeating Three-Number Combination.

The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern made its 148th appearance, with winning numbers 30, 33, 43, 47, 69, and MB 15.

Winning Mega Millions numbers

This Pattern has played in 40.9% of the 362 drawings Mega Millions has had to date.

Moving on, the [1-2-1-1-1] General Order made its 43rd appearance, its first since the March 10th, 2017 drawing. With that said, this General Order has now played in approximately 29.1% of the 148 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 11.9% of all Mega Millions drawings.

The 0 1 2 1 1 1 Specific Order made its 7th appearance, and like the [1-2-1-1-1] General Order, it also previously played in the March 10th drawing. This Specific Order has now played in 16.3% of the 43 drawings where the [1-2-1-1-1] General Order has appeared, 4.73% of the 148 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and 1.93% of all drawings.

Our Mega Millions analysis concludes with the appearance of the repeating Three-Number Combination 30. 69, and MB 15.

The red box highlights the repeating Three-Number Combination.

This Combination made its debut in the December 23rd, 2016 drawing.

With Easter around the corner, what kind of eggs will Mega Millions leave?

Back to Life, Back to Lottery Trend

Hey there, Lottery Binge readers! Lottery Meister (a.k.a. “Freyja Harris”) here, back from vacation. First, I’d like to thank my guest blogger Romulun for holding down the fort while I was in Japan. He’ll continue to be a part of the Lottery Trend team as our lotterytrend-megamillions.com analyst. Before I talk about my Japan adventure, let’s recap what went down in the April 4th, 2017 Mega Millions drawing.

Mega Millions

The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern made its 147th appearance Tuesday night with winning numbers 13, 24, 34, 35, 55, and MB 9.

Winning Mega Millions numbers.

There have now been 361 Mega Millions drawings, and the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has played in 40.7% of them. Prior to Tuesday, we last saw this Pattern not too long ago in the March 24th drawing.

The [1-1-2-1-1] General Order made its 34th appearance, its first since the February 24th, 2017 drawing. This General Order has now played in 23.1% of the 147 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared. The [1-1-2-1-1] General Order has also played in 9.42% of all 361 drawings.

Next in our recap is the 1 1 2 1 0 1 Specific Order, which made its 11th appearance. This Specific Order has now played in 32.4% of the 34 drawings where the [1-1-2-1-1] General Order appeared, 7.48% of the 147 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern appeared, and 3.05% of all Mega Millions drawings. To see when the 1 1 2 1 0 1 Specific Order previously played, we need to go back near the beginning of the year, January 10th, 2017 to be precise.

Our Mega Millions analysis concludes with the repeat appearance of the Three-Number Combination 13, 35, and MB 9.

Repeating Three-Number Combination highlighted in red box.

This Combination debuted in the August 28th, 2015 drawing.

And now, I’m going to take some time to talk about my trip.

On March 19th, I left on a 14-hour flight from Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston bound for Narita in Tokyo.

Just before leaving Houston.

There were two purposes to my trip: to partake in the sights and to see my cousin, who is currently stationed at Kadena Air Base in Okinawa. Our first week was in Tokyo, and our second week was in Okinawa.

Tokyo

I met up with my cousin at Narita and we made our way to the Granbell Hotel Shinjuku via rail, subway, and taxi. Our rooms were small, but the most important thing was that they were clean! The shower had hot water every day and the beds were comfortable.

Tiny room, comfortable bed!

In addition to walking, the subway/rail system was our main method of transportation. Tokyo was the first time either of us had ever used a subway but we got the hang of it. Whenever we got lost or turned around, there were always people available to help us.

One aspect I truly liked about Tokyo was how the parks and the shrines provided sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of the city. I found Ikebukuro and Ueno to be more laid back than Shinjuku and Akihabara! Ueno Park is where we found a lone cherry tree in full bloom. The other trees in the park either hadn’t sprouted yet, or were in the middle of such. I can only imagine what the park looks like now!

Getting an early start to cherry blossom season.

For our readers who have never been to Tokyo, here are some tips:

  • Buy either (a) a PASMO card or (b) a ticket that grants you access on the Toei and Tokyo Metro subways/trains. Which option you choose is based on the number of days you’re spending in Tokyo. Since we only stayed for five days, we spent ¥1000 each day, or roughly $9.
    1. The subways stop running at midnight.
    2. If you must catch the subway during rush hour, try to aim for a car that has fewer people.
  • If you plan to visit other parts of Japan, buy a JR Rail Pass. We didn’t need one since we stayed in Tokyo the first week. Also, the JR Pass is useless in Okinawa.
  • There will be a lot of walking and standing. Strengthen those legs and don’t forget to stretch before leaving your hotel room!
  • If you visit in winter/early spring, wear layers. The high rises create wind tunnels, and it will feel at least 5 degrees (Fahrenheit) colder.
  • The Sony Building in Ginza is in the process of being replaced by a park, which shall be named Sony Park.
  • Some vending machines will have soda or water in them, while others will have beer, coffee, tea, or even cigarettes. Vending machines are also on just about every corner.
Who said you had to visit New York City?

Okinawa

For the second week, we flew from Narita to Naha and bunked at Kadena Air Base.

As a guest, I needed a pass to show that I belonged on site, and my cousin served as my escort whenever we were on base. Off-base, we partook in the wonders of steak ramen (Stripe) and Coco Curry House.

Shuri Castle provided an interesting lesson on the history of the Ryukyu Kingdom (Okinawa is part of the Ryukyu Islands). One of the most breathtaking sites from the castle was looking out and seeing a bit of the East China Sea. We got a close-up when we went to the Sunabe sea wall.

Low tide and seaweed

Houston is notorious for its hot and muggy summers, and I got word from my cousin that the summers in Kadena are worse. The mountains block any breeze from the sea from reaching inland. I can only imagine how popular the Sunabe sea wall and the beaches are in the summer months!

Kokusai Dori is a strip full of stores and off-beat shops. One such shop allows you to pet owls and, if you pay a little extra, get to hold one!

The first of many owls. This one is stuffed!

The Southeast Botanical Gardens had a variety of plants and animals, and provided a sense of serenity.

When my cousin wasn’t showing me around Okinawa, we’d binge-watch Game of Thrones. Prior to my trip, I had read the first three books, but never watched the show. Let’s just say I’m hooked on the show, and I need to watch seasons 5 and 6 before the next season starts!

Okinawa in general is more laid back than Tokyo, and seeing people drive just about everywhere reminded me of home. Speaking of home, March 30th was when I had bid sayonara to Japan. There were a couple of things I was going to miss:

One of the best sodas ever.
  • Melon Fanta (pictured)– I had my first taste of it from a 500 mL bottle I bought at a 7-11 in Tokyo. The result? I started ordering it with just about every meal. It goes great with steak ramen! This drink isn’t available Stateside.
  • Kit Kats – Yes, Kit Kats are available in the States, but Japanese Kit Kats have a special je n’ais se quoi about them. They come in a variety of flavors, some of which are specific to a region. The beni-imo, or purple sweet potato flavor, is exclusive to Okinawa. Other flavors I had were matcha green tea and wasabi flavor.

Fun fact: “Kit Kat” sounds a lot like きっと 勝つ (kitto katsu), which translated means “You’ll surely win”.  It’s not uncommon for students to eat them before a test. I wouldn’t be at all shocked if some of our Japanese readers munch on a Kit Kat or two before picking numbers!

On the flight back to Houston.

To our readers in Japan, and to all of the nice people who helped us navigate the subways and the restaurants, I have this to say: ありがとう ございます。

Once Again–No Combination Repeats, But Two Reigning Patterns Return!

Well, Lottery Trend Fans, this is guest blogger, Romulun Harris, about to give his last post for a while. To begin, the reigning patterns in both Lotto Texas and Powerball made their return. And now the details.
