Autumn Combo Rolls

The September 24th drawings marked the beginning of autumn for Lotto Texas and Powerball. As has been routine for the month of September thus far, any signs of a streak getting off the ground are squashed beyond the third appearance. The Patterns from Wednesday’s drawing didn’t make an encore, and it looks as if the reprieve from the {2-2-1-1}/{2-1-1-1-1} volley in Powerball was short lived. In Lotto Texas, there was a throwback to the pre-YouTube days.

Lotto Texas

Saturday’s winning Pattern was {4-1-1}, provided by 5, 26, 37, 49, 44, and 50.

With its 153rd appearance and 1380 Lotto Texas drawings to date, the {4-1-1} Pattern has played 11.1% of the time. The last time we saw this Pattern play was nearly a month ago back on August 27th.

The Specific Order of the evening was 1 1 4, making its 51st appearance. Out of the 153 drawings where the {4-1-1} Pattern played, the 1 1 4 Specific Order has played 33.3% of the time. When looking at all 1380 drawings, this Specific Order has played 3.70% of the time. Like the {4-1-1} Pattern, the 1 1 4 Specific Order previously played in the August 27th drawing.

We wrap up our Lotto Texas coverage with the second appearance of two Four-Number Combinations:

  • 26, 39, 44, and 50, which first played almost three years ago on September 28th, 2011, and
  • 5, 26, 39, and 50, which first played April 26th, 2003.

Putting things in perspective, YouTube didn’t come about until 2005, and social media was primarily in the form of chat rooms.

Powerball

The {2-2-1-1} Pattern appeared after a one-drawing hiatus. The 36th appearance was thanks to winning numbers 7, 15, 20, 29, 41, and PB 22.

Now that there have been 102 Powerball drawings, the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has now played 35.3% of the time. This Pattern previously played in the September 14th drawing.

The [1-2-2-1] General Order made its 14th appearance, its first since the August 6th, 2016 drawing. Out of the 36 drawings where {2-2-1-1} was the winning Pattern, the [1-2-2-1] General Order has played 38.9% of the time. This becomes 13.7% of the time when looking at all 102 drawings.

The 1 2 2 0 0 1 Specific Order made its first appearance since the June 15th, 2016 drawing. Having now appeared three times, and with 14 drawings where the [1-2-2-1] General Order has appeared, the 1 2 2 0 0 1 Specific Order has played 21.4% of the time. When looking at the 36 drawings in which the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has played, this becomes 8.33% and 2.94% when looking at all 102 Powerball drawings.

We saw a repeating Three-Number Combination in the form of 15, 20, and 29.

This Combination made its debut almost a year ago on October 14th, 2015.

As we look to the week ahead, will Lotto Texas have another “so last decade” throwback? Will the {2-2-1-1} and {2-1-1-1-1} Patterns in Powerball go after each other again?
