Marchin’ Orders

Summer is upon us in Lottery Trend Country (US). The barbeque pits are firing up, beach parties are in full swing, and some kids got a head start to summer vacation. Mega Millions kick-started summer with a repeating Three-Number Combination Friday night! Now, before I get to that, there’s a matter concerning order that must be discussed. Both the General Order and the Specific Order were last seen this past March.

The winning numbers in the May 26th drawing were 25, 26, 28, 37, 56, and MB 5.

Now with 61 appearances, the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has played in 16.2% of the 376 Mega Millions drawings. Prior to Friday, this Pattern was last seen just a couple of weeks ago in the May 12th drawing.

The [3-1-1-1] General Order made it 21st appearance, and has now played in 34.4% of the 61 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 5.59% of all drawings. This Specific Order previously played in the March 31st, 2017 drawing.

Making its fourth appearance, the 0 3 1 1 0 1 Specific Order has played in roughly 19% of the 21 drawings where the [3-1-1-1] General Order has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 6.56% of the 61 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 1.06% of all drawings. Like the [3-1-1-1] General Order, the 0 3 1 1 0 1 Specific Order previously played in the March 31st, 2017 drawing.

And now it’s time to discuss the Three-Number Combination.

The repeating Three-Number Combination of the evening was 28, 37, and 56.

This Combination made its debut in the February 7th, 2017 drawing.

Next week will mark the first anniversary of Lottery Binge, and of course, the end of May. How will Mega Millions end the month? Will there be a rare play? Will the {3-1-1-1} Pattern go for an encore appearance?

Leading Threes

Saturday night’s momentum continued into the May 24th drawings for Lotto Texas and Powerball. Both lotteries saw big plays! One such play came in the form of our dear friends the repeating Combinations. Lotto Texas saw a repeating Four-Number Combination and Powerball had a repeating Three-Number Combination.

And in both Lotto Texas and Powerball, the number three (3) was not in short supply.

Lotto Texas

The not oft-seen {3-3} Pattern played for the 125th time, with winning numbers 11, 13, 17, 48, 51, and 54.

This Pattern has now played in 8.63% of the 1449 Lotto Texas drawings, and previously played in the April 19th, 2017 drawing.

Making its 46th appearance, the 3 0 3 Specific Order has now played in 36.8% of the 125 drawings where the {3-3} Pattern has appeared, and in 3.17% of all drawings. Prior to Wednesday night’s drawing, this Specific Order was last seen in the April 8th, 2017 drawing.

The repeating Four-Number Combination of the evening was 13, 48, 51, and 54.

When looking at all 171 Powerball drawings, this statistic becomes 1.75%. This Specific Order was last seen in the early days of Lottery Binge: June 1st, 2016, to be exact.

The repeating Three-Number Combination was 28, 33, and 38.

The debut for this Combination was in the February 15th, 2017 drawing a little over three months ago.

Looks like Lotto Texas and Powerball are ready to kick it into high gear for summer. Will the lead-in to the Memorial Day weekend be a fireworks show or will things mellow out?

Ain’t No Party Like a Combo Party

Saturday nights for Lotto Texas and Powerball are usually busy, and May 20th was one of those nights. Repeating Three and Four-Number Combinations was the theme, and both lotteries got to take part. The debut dates ranged from just last month to the beginning of the millennium*!

*Or end of the millennium, depending on who you ask.

Lotto Texas

The {3-2-1} Pattern made its 751st appearance with winning numbers 8, 9, 15, 20, 38, and 39.

Winning Texas Lottery numbers. From lotterytrend.com.

This Pattern remains the most commonly seen in Lotto Texas, now appearing in 51.9% of the 1448 Lotto Texas drawings. Prior to Saturday’s drawing, the {3-2-1} Pattern was last seen a few weeks ago in the April 26th drawing.

Making its 136th appearance, the 3 1 2 Specific Order has now played in 18.1% of the 751 drawings where the {3-2-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 9.39% of all Lotto Texas drawings. This Specific Order previously played in the March 18th, 2017 drawing.

The grandest part of Saturday night’s drawing was the repeat appearances of four Four-Number Combinations!

  • 15, 20, 38, 39 (Debuted April 19th, 2008)
  • 8, 15, 38, 39 (Debuted July 29th, 2009)

  • 9, 15, 20, 39 (Debuted April 8th, 2009)

Lotto Texas saw plenty of repeating Combination action. Did Powerball see just as much?

Powerball

With winning numbers 5, 22, 45, 47, 54, and PB 3, the {3-1-1-1} Pattern made its 32nd appearance.

Winning Powerball numbers. From lotterytrend-powerball.com.

This Pattern has now played in 18.8% of the 170 Powerball drawings, and was last seen in the April 29th drawing.

Now with 13 appearances, the [1-1-3-1] General Order has played in roughly 40.63% of the 32 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 7.65% of all Powerball drawings. This General Order previously played in the April 5th drawing.

The 1 1 0 3 0 1 Specific Order made its second appearance. With that said, this Specific Order has played in 15.4% of the 13 drawings where the [1-1-3-1] General Order has appeared, 6.25% of the 32 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 1.18% of all drawings. Interestingly, this Specific Order made its debut in the same April 5th drawing that the [1-1-3-1] General Order was last seen.

The repeating Three-Number Combination was 5,22,45, fresh off the heels of its debut just last month in the April 15th drawing.

Powerball may not have seen as much in the way of repeating Combinations, but it’s not often that the General Order and the Specific Order share the same “last seen” date.

With the drumbeats of summer vacation growing ever louder in Lottery Trend Country, what will the week ahead have in store? Will there be more repeating Three and Four-Number Combinations or will there be a mellowing out. Memorial Day is around the corner, after all.

The Big Playback

Looking at the title, you’re probably thinking that an Australia Play took place. Well, you’d be wrong. The May 12th drawing did present a phenomenon found with an Australia Play. But, why spoil it in the introductory paragraph?

Friday night’s winning numbers were 28, 34, 41, 42, 47, and MB 13, bringing the total number of appearances of the {3-1-1-1} Pattern to 60.

Winning Mega Millions numbers. From lotterytrend-megamillions.com.

This Pattern has now played in 16.1% of the 372 Mega Millions drawings, and was last seen in the April 11th, 2017 drawing.

Making its 18th appearance, the [1-3-1-1] General Order has played in 30% of the 60 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 4.84% of all drawings. Like the {3-1-1-1} Pattern, the [1-3-1-1] Specific Order was also last seen in the April 11th drawing.

See a pattern here?

The 0 1 3 1 0 1 Specific Order made its seventh appearance. This Specific Order has now played in approximately 38.9% of the 18 drawings where the [1-3-1-1] General Order has appeared. Moving up the chain, this Specific Order has played in approximately 11.7% of the 60 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 1.88% of all 372 drawings. Like the Pattern and the General Order of the evening, the 0 1 3 1 0 1 Specific Order previously played in the April 11th drawing.

For those of you who’ve just started checking out Lottery Binge, you can see above that the Pattern, General Order, and Specific Order all appeared together on a previous day. This is one feature of the Australia Play phenom; the main feature is that the Pattern, General Order, and the Specific Order are the same. In the case of Mega Millions, the Australia Play would consist of the {1-1-1-1-1} Pattern, the [1-1-1-1-1-1] General Order, and the 1 1 1 1 1 1 Specific Order. However, unlike what occurred on Friday night, the statistics for each would be the same. What took place isn’t common to begin with, even rarer when an Australia Play did not appear.

Will the {3-1-1-1} Pattern make an encore appearance? Will there be a bona fide Australia Play?

Number Storm

The steady rain from Wednesday night turned into a downpour Saturday. What sprouted after the rains of April 29th were big plays for both Lotto Texas and Powerball.

Lotto Texas

One of the big events in Lotto Texas was the return of the Australia Play! As is the nature of such a play, the {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order made their 194th appearance. The winning numbers were 2, 5, 25, 35, 41, and 53.

Winning Texas Lottery numbers. From lotterytrend.com.

Prior to Saturday night, the last time an Australia Play came about was in the February 22nd, 2017 drawing. The Australia Play has now appeared in 13.5% of 1442 Lotto Texas drawings.

Saturday’s Australia Play also harbored two repeating Four-Number Combinations. These were

  • 2, 35, 41, 53 (Debuted August 6th, 2011) and
  • 2, 25, 35, 41 (Debuted July 5th, 2014)

The {3-1-1-1} Pattern made an encore appearance, with winning numbers 22, 23, 24, 45, 62, and PB 5.

Now with 31 appearances, this Pattern has played in 18.9% of the 164 Powerball drawings.

The [3-1-1-1] General Order made its eighth appearance, and has played in 25.8% of the 31 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared. This General Order has also played in 4.88% of all 164 drawings. The [3-1-1-1] had previously played in the January 11th, 2017 drawing.

Getting into specifics, the 0 3 0 1 1 1 Specific Order made its third appearance. This Specific Order has played in 37.5% of the 8 drawings where the [3-1-1-1] General Order appeared, 9.68% of the 31 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 1.83% of all Powerball drawings. Prior to Saturday, the 0 3 0 1 1 1 Specific Order previously played in the November 19th, 2016 drawing.

Last, but certainly not least, a Three-Number Combination made a repeat appearance! The Combination was 22, 45, and PB 5.

This Combination made its debut in the November 14th, 2015 drawing.

With April behind us and with May on the way, will a trend of big plays be established for Lotto Texas and Powerball?

April Showers

“April showers bring May flowers,” so the saying goes. One can assume that said showers are of steady rains, not sprinkles or deluges of Biblical proportions. The April 26th drawings for Lotto Texas and Powerball were just like those proverbial showers. There were no major upsets, and the biggest play of the evening wasn’t obvious, at least on the surface.

Lotto Texas

Lotto Texas had the biggest draw of the evening, with the encore appearance of the {3-2-1} Pattern. Its 750th appearance was thanks to winning numbers 9, 25, 30, 40, 45, and 53.

Winning Texas Lottery numbers. From lotterytrend.com.

This Pattern has now played in 52.05% of the 1441 Lotto Texas drawings, and remains the most commonly seen Pattern. Recall that the {3-2-1} Pattern was just seen this past Saturday.

The Specific Order of the evening was 1 2 3. Now with 137 appearances, this Specific Order has played in 18.3% of the 750 drawings where the {3-2-1} Pattern has appeared. When looking at all 1441 drawings, this statistic becomes 9.51%. The 1 2 3 Specific Order was last seen in the December 3rd, 2016 drawing.

There were no repeating Four-Number, or Five-Number Combinations on Wednesday night.

Powerball

Powerball saw an uncommon Pattern in the form of {3-1-1-1}. Winning numbers 1, 15, 18, 26, 51, and PB 26 brought the number of appearances up to 30.

Winning Powerball numbers. From lotterytrend-powerball.com.

This Pattern has now played in 18.4% of the 163 Powerball drawings, and previously played in the April 5th, 2017 drawing.

The [1-3-1-1] General Order made its 11th appearance, its first since the March 4th, 2017 drawing. This General Order has played in approximately 36.67% of the 30 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 6.75% of all 163 drawings.

With only two appearances, the 1 3 0 1 0 1 Specific Order has now played in 18.2% of the eleven drawings where the [1-3-1-1] General Order has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in approximately 6.667% of the 30 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} has appeared, and in 1.23% of all drawings. The 1 3 0 1 0 1 Specific Order made its debut in the November 12th, 2016 drawing.

The thing about showers is that the grey skies give way to sunlight and fields with flowers abloom. With the last drawings of the month for Lotto Texas and Powerball taking place on Saturday, will the flowers bloom early?

Marchin’, Marchin’

April 11th was mostly quiet. No new Specific Order made a debut, and neither the Pattern nor General Order were rare sights. These three did share one thing in common: they were all previously seen at the end of this past March. There was something in the Mega Millions drawing that kept the night from being completely quiet and that was the repeat appearances of three Three-Number Combinations!

First in the Lottery Binge Mega Millions analysis is the {3-1-1-1} Pattern, making its 59th appearance. The winning numbers were 19, 34, 35, 38 49, and MB 8.

Winning Mega Millions numbers

This Pattern has now played in approximately 16.3% of the 363 Mega Millions drawings. We last saw this Pattern in the March 31st drawing.

The [1-3-1-1] General Order made its 17th appearance, its first since the March 28th drawing. With that said, this General Order has played in 28.8% of the 59 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has played. This General Order has also played in 4.68% of all drawings.

Next is the 0 1 3 1 0 1 Specific Order, making its sixth appearance. This means that it has now played in 35.3% of the 17 drawings where the [1-3-1-1] General Order has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 10.2% of the 59 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 1.65% of all Mega Millions drawings thus far. Like the [1-3-1-1] General Order, the 0 1 3 1 0 1 Specific Order previously played on March 28th.

And now for The Big Reveal. These were the Three-Number Combinations that made a repeat performance:

19, 34, 38 (Debuted March 22nd, 2016)

34, 49, MB 8 (Debuted May 31st, 2016)

19, 38, MB 8 (Debuted November 24th, 2015)

In the red boxes are the repeating Three-Number Combinations

The next Mega Millions drawing is on Good Friday. What type of fish will Mega Millions serve up?

No Foolin’

April is now in full swing and another Wednesday has come and gone. The results from Lotto Texas and Powerball showed that April 5th was far from a quiet night. Lotto Texas saw most of the excitement, but don’t count Powerball out!

Lotto Texas

The {3-2-1} Pattern made an encore appearance, with winning numbers 8, 20, 21, 26, 51, and 52.

Winning Texas Lottery numbers.

With 746 appearances, this Pattern continues to leave all other Lotto Texas Patterns in the dust. As of Wednesday, it has played in roughly 52% of the 1435 drawings. Recall that the {3-2-1} Pattern previously played in Saturday’s drawing.

The 1 3 2 Specific Order made its 111th appearance. Like the {3-2-1} Pattern, this Specific Order was also last seen this past Saturday. With that said, the 1 3 2 Specific Order has now played in 14.9% of the 746 drawings where the {3-2-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 7.74% of all Lotto Texas drawings.

Although there were no repeating Four-Number Combinations, we saw not one, but two similar spreads in Wednesday’s drawing. One of these similar spreads was 05:01:01:12:25, and the winning numbers for the night of April 4th, 2007 were 8, 13, 14, 15, 27, and 52. Another similar spread came in the form of 05:12:01:01:25 on February 16th, 2008. The winning numbers were 9, 14, 26, 27, 28, and 53. Given that the winning numbers from Wednesday night were 8, 20, 21, 26, 51, and 52, the spread was 12:01:05:25:01.  As is the nature of similar spreads, the differences between numbers in these drawings were the same, but the orders were different.

What antics did Powerball get up to?

Powerball

Compared to Lotto Texas, Powerball was much calmer. There were no similar spreads, nor were there repeating Three-Number Combinations. Even so, that didn’t stop the debut of a new Specific Order.

Wednesday’s drawing marked the 29th appearance of the {3-1-1-1} Pattern, with winning numbers 8, 20, 46, 53, 54, and PB 13.

Winning Powerball numbers.

This Pattern has now played in 18.5% of the 157 Powerball drawings and was last seen in the March 4th drawing, which was a little more than a month ago.

Next, the [1-1-3-1] General Order made its 12th appearance, its first since the February 15th, 2017 drawing. This General Order has now played in 41.4% of the 29 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 7.64% of all drawings.

Our Lottery Trend analysis/recap for Powerball concludes with the debut of the 1 1 0 3 0 1 Specific Order. This has now played in 8.33% of the 12 drawings where the [1-1-3-1] General Order has appeared, 3.45% of the 29 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 0.64% of all drawings.

Looking ahead to Saturday, will another Specific Order make its debut? Will the {3-2-1} Pattern in Lotto Texas go for a three-peat appearance?

A Really Big Surprise–And it’s not an April Fools’ Joke!

Happy April everyone! This is guest blogger, Romulun Harris, once again giving you the latest lottery updates!  And have I got a very good surprise for all you! But first, the details.

Last night on March 31, 2017, as the month came to a close, the Megamillions jackpot was won, courtesy of the winning numbers 17, 24, 27, 32, 58 and MB 10.

Once again, the {3-1-1-1} Pattern played, in its 58th appearance. Currently, it has played in 16.11% of all 360 drawings. The {3-1-1-1} Pattern last played on March 28, 2017.

The [3-1-1-1] General Order made its 20th appearance. Currently, it has appeared in 34.48% of 58 drawings associated with the {3-1-1-1} Pattern and 5.56% of all 360 drawings. The [3-1-1-1] General Order last played on March 14, 2017.

The 0 3 1 1 0 1 Specific Order made its 3rd appearance. Currently, it has appeared in exactly 15% of 20 drawings associated with the [3-1-1-1] General Order, 5.17% of 58 drawings associated with the {3-1-1-1} Pattern, and 1.39% of all 360 drawings. Like the [3-1-1-1] General Order, the 0 3 1 1 0 1 Specific Order last played on March 14, 2017.

 

There were three repeats in Three-Number Combinations. The Combinations comprised the numbers:

  • 17, 24, and 27—which debuted on May 17, 2016.
  • 17, 24, and MB 10—which debuted on June 24, 2014.
  • 27, 58, and MB 10—which debuted on St. Patrick’s Day.

 

And now, the surprise you’ve been waiting for!

3/31/17: 17, 24, 27, 32, 58, MB 10      3/14/17: 16, 23, 28, 33, 59, MB 13.

Look at how close the digits are! This is why at Lottery Trend, we do what we do!

 

Well, looks like we had an early Easter surprise! A March 14, 2017 drawing and last night’s drawing with digits that are very close to each other! But that is the purpose of Specific Orders—a concept created by Mary Semiene Harris, the Architect of Lottery Trend: to help readers/users winnow down their choice of numbers. Generally, drawings that play according to the same Specific Order will be closer in numbers than drawings with different Specific Orders. Until next time, this is guest blogger, Romulun Harris, signing off.

Three-Num Combo Surprise!

Hello again, Lottery Trend Fans! This is guest blogger, Romulun Harris, once again giving you the latest lottery updates!  This time in Megamillions, something special happened in the Three-Number Combinations section. And now for the details.

Last night on March 28, 2017, the winning numbers in Megamillions were 30, 33, 35, 37, 46, and MB 10.

The {3-1-1-1} Pattern made its 57th appearance and, currently, has appeared in 15.88% of all 359 drawings. The pattern last played on March 14, 2017, two weeks prior to last night.

The [1-3-1-1] General Order made its 16th appearance. Currently, it has appeared in 28.07% of 57 drawings associated with the {3-1-1-1} Pattern and 4.46% of all 359 drawings. The [1-3-1-1] General Order last played on September 9, 2016.

The 0 1 3 1 0 1 Specific Order made its 5th appearance. Currently, it has appeared in 31.25% of 16 drawings associated with the [1-3-1-1] General Order, 8.77% of 57 drawings associated with the {3-1-1-1} Pattern, and 1.39% of all 359 drawings. The 0 1 3 1 0 1 Specific Order last played on July 1, 2016.

 

This time, there were two Three-Number Combinations that repeated, one combination even making its third appearance.

The first Three-Number Combination comprised the numbers 33, 46, and MB 10. It made its debut on July 31, 2015.

The second Three-Number Combination comprised the numbers 30, 35, and MB 10. It made its debut on March 21, 2014 and appeared for the second time on July 11, 2014.

 

Surprising, wasn’t it? A Three-Number Combination that appears twice in the same year and then doesn’t play again until three years later. Well, stay tuned for more surprises. Until then, this is guest blogger, Romulun Harris, signing off.
