A Sizzling Pattern Encore

Summer has been in gear for a few days, and already two noteworthy events took place in Lottery World June 23rd. One was that the jackpots for Lotto Texas and Powerball climbed to $7.75 million and $50 million, respectively. The other was a Pattern encore.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

Right off the heels of the June 20th drawing, the {3-2-1} Pattern made an encore appearance! Its 815th appearance was thanks to winning numbers 3, 5, 8, 19, 24, and 54.

Of the 1562 Lotto Texas drawings, this Pattern has played 52.2% of the time.

Now with 147 appearances, the 3 2 1 Specific Order has played in 18.0% of the 815 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern. When looking at all 1562 drawings, this Specific Order has played in 9.41% of them. Prior to Saturday night, the 3 2 1 Specific Order played in the June 13th, 2018 drawing.

Four-Number Combination(s)

The {3-2-1} Pattern encore flew solo, so to speak. There were no repeating Four-Number Combinations this time.

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

With winning numbers 16, 29, 43, 45, 56, and PB 25, the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has played 59 times.

Out of the 284 Powerball drawings, this Pattern has played 20.8% of the time. This Pattern previously played on June 16th, 2018.

The [1-1-3-1] General Order made its 27th appearance. This General Order has played in 45.8% of the 59 drawings where {3-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern and played alongside it in the earlier-mentioned June 16th drawing. Finally, when looking at all 284 drawings, the [1-1-3-1] General Order has played 9.51% of the time.

Now with four appearances, the 0 1 1 3 0 1 Specific Order has played in 14.8% of the 27 drawings where ]1-1-3-1] was the General Order of the evening. This Specific Order has also played in 6.78% of the 59 drawings where {3-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 1.41% of all 284 drawings. The 0 1 1 3 0 1 Specific Order was last seen on May 12th, 2018.

Three-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations this time.

Could the {3-2-1} Pattern establish a streak in Wednesday’s drawing? Could {3-1-1-1} make an encore in Powerball?

The Middling {3-1-1-1}

What better way to start a new season (summer or winter, depending on where you are) than with the “middle child” of Mega Millions Patterns? The {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared far more often than many Patterns. Yet, it’ll be a long time before it ever dreams of catching up with either the {2-1-1-1-1} or {2-2-1-1} Patterns.  This “middle child” had a lot going for it in the June 22nd drawing. One of its feats was pushing the Mega Millions jackpot to $212 million.

Given that there have been 369 Mega Millions drawings, this Pattern has played roughly 19% of the time. Prior to Friday night, the {3-1-1-1} Pattern played on May 22nd, 2018.

The [3-1-1-1] General Order made its 35th appearance and has now played in 35.7% of the 70 drawings where {3-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. This General Order has also played in 6.78% of all 369 drawings. When it comes to being joined at the hip, the [3-1-1-1] General Order would know about it! This played alongside the {3-1-1-1} Pattern in the earlier-mentioned May 22nd drawing.

Another surprise was the debut of the 3 1 0 1 0 1 Specific Order. With that said, this Specific Order has played in 4% of the 25 drawings where [3-1-1-1] was the General Order. This Specific Order has also played in 1.43% of the 70 drawings where the winning Pattern was {3-1-1-1} and in 0.27% of all 369 drawings.

Finally, there was a repeating Three-Number Combination nestled inside:

Will the {3-1-1-1} Pattern start the last week of June with an encore?

Mid-Month Breather with a Side of Uncommon Patterns

Lotto Texas and Powerball followed Mega Millions’s lead on June 16th. They took a break. This break, along with rising jackpots ($7.25 million for Lotto Texas and $151 million in Powerball), is like watching an engaging drama. The real start of summer is June 20th (or 21st), and all the biggest plays don’t—can’t—happen just yet. Give too much away, and people will tune out. Suspense must also be built, and at the same time, there should be breather periods where the audience can catch their breath.

The very uncommon {5-1} Pattern made its 56th appearance, with winning numbers 17, 41, 42, 45, 49, and 50.

The 1 0 0 1 3 1 Specific Order was last seen on October 17th, 2017.

Will either of these uncommon Patterns make an encore in Wednesday’s drawing?

The {3-2-1} Pattern Strikes Back and Return of the {3-1-1-1} Pattern

Today’s post will begin with a couple of shout-outs.

First, to the class of 2018. Whether you’re a college or high school graduate, you’ve survived at least twelve years of schooling, and now it’s time to make your mark in the world. Go forth!

This next shout-out is a special one to the teachers, parents, and students of the Houston area. When tragedy struck (and boy, did it strike), we came together and said to each other, “I got your back”. And, there were some bright spots, too. All this to say, y’all earned those three months. Take that time to chill, stay sharp, and like the old Discovery Channel motto, “Explore your world.”

“Star Wars” reference aside, the post title only tells you a little bit of what went on May 30th. In the most recent Mega Millions post, I mentioned sequels and how summers tend to be filled with them, especially these days. Love ‘em or hate ‘em, they’re a big deal. For lotteries, anyway.

Right now, the jackpots for Lotto Texas and Powerball stand at a respective $6 million and $74 million. Lotto Texas got hit by “sequelitis”. Powerball got bit by something else.

Fresh from the May 26th drawing, the {3-2-1} Pattern came back for an encore with winning numbers 8, 9, 14, 34, 42, and 44.

This Pattern has now played 810 times. Given that there have been 1555 Lotto Texas drawings, this Pattern has played in 52.1% of them.

The {3-2-1} Pattern wasn’t the only thing that made an encore! Now with 151 appearances, the 3 1 2 Specific Order has played in 18.6% of the 810 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern. This Specific Order has also played in 9.71% of all 1555 drawings.

Four-Number Combination(s)

This Combination made its debut in a summer long past. It was the July 21st, 2007 drawing. Ten years may seem like nothing to (older) humans, but it is a long time for lotteries.

The 0 3 0 1 1 1 Specific Order previously played on April 11th, 2018.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Repeating Three-Number Combinations were absent.

Will Lotto Texas and Powerball greet June with Pattern streaks/encores, or will other Patterns take the spotlight?

The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern Streak Blocker

Some things seemed inevitable May 22nd. The Rockets were sure to lose against the Warriors (hint: they didn’t), and the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern was going to make a fifth consecutive appearance. After all, this Pattern is comfortable with “five-peats”, if you will. “Six-peats”, even. But, the streak was blocked (and the jackpot climbed). Which Pattern knocked the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern off its perch? And were there any repeating Three-Number Combinations?

General Lottery Analysis

The Pattern of the evening was {3-1-1-1}. With winning numbers 16, 17, 21, 36, 48, and MB 9, this Pattern has now played 69 times.

The [3-1-1-1] General Order, with 24 appearances, has played in 34.8% of the 69 drawings where {3-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. This General Order has also appeared in 6.67% of all 360 drawings. Prior to Tuesday night, this General Order played on February 23rd, 2018.

Now with five appearances, the 0 3 1 1 0 1 Specific Order has played in 20.8% of the 24 drawings where the General Order was [3-1-1-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 7.25% of the 69 drawings where {3-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Finally, when looking at all 360 drawings, this Specific Order has played 1.39% of the time. We last saw the 0 3 1 1 0 1 Specific Order on June 16th, 2017. This was reconfigured from the 0 4 1 0 0 1 Specific Order seen that night.

Three Number Combination(s)

What good is a streak smasher without repeating Three-Number Combinations, right? There were in fact three of them:

  • 16, 17, 36 (Debuted June 9th, 2015)
  • 16, 17, 48 (Debuted April 26th, 2016)
  • 17, 21, 36 (Debuted March 27th, 2015)
A cluster and a single. All repeating Three-Number Combinations. Source: lotterytrend-megamillions.com.

Will the {3-1-1-1} Pattern make an encore Friday night, or will the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern try to re-establish a streak?

The Biggest Draw of the Night

Lotto Texas and Powerball are worlds apart, and May 19th proved the point. The Texas lottery had a quiet night, what with there being no jackpot winner. But, the Pattern there was like a boomerang. You’ve tossed it, and you think it’s gone, but it comes right back.

As for Powerball, Saturday night was truly that lottery’s time to shine. A player in New Jersey is now $315 million richer, and five players in Florida, Texas, Minnesota, and New York will have $1 million more. Of course, that wasn’t all Powerball had to offer. We’ll get to that momentarily.

Lotto Texas

With winning numbers 1, 12, 22, 31, 39, and 46, the {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order made their 217th appearance.

Given that there have been 1552 Lotto Texas drawings, this special play has occurred 14% of the time. For our long-time readers, the last time we saw an Australia Play was on May 12th, 2018.  This lottery has certainly become fond of Australia lately! With the notoriously hot and brutal Texas summer rearing its head soon, a trip Down Under may not be such a bad idea. Winter’s a comin’ down there.

Four-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Four-Number Combinations bounding across the numbers plain.

The numbers that gave five people the option to quit their day jobs were 3, 6, 9, 17, 56, and PB 25.

Summer is almost upon us. Will we continue to see these wild and crazy plays in the week ahead?

Pre-Mother’s Day Saturday Encore

Today’s post is going to start with a tribute.

Be they called “mothers”, “las madres”, or just plain “Moms”, without them we wouldn’t be. They nurtured us, comforted us, fussed at us (when we needed it!), and made sure we became functioning members of society. Mothers aren’t perfect, but dang if they don’t try. Even when the kids have grown up and have lives of their own, mothers are like artists: they feel their work is never done! As annoying as it may seem, we’ll end up missing that fussing and “worrisomeness” when their time comes.

And, in the spirit of Mother’s Day, May 12th was a quiet night for Lotto Texas and Powerball. The only rowdiness was a Pattern encore and a repeating Three-Number Combination.

Will either Powerball or Lotto Texas see Pattern encores on Wednesday, or will other Patterns take the reins?

 

Hot Wednesday

Contrasts! That’s been the theme of the month so far. Mega Millions has been much calmer as of late, with Lotto Texas and Powerball tag-teaming as they spice things up. These lotteries joined forces once again on April 11th. They helped us escape the mid-week doldrums with an Australia Play and  repeating Three and Four-Number Combinations.

Will Lotto Texas and Powerball continue to keep things heated for Saturday night?

Winter Comeback

Apparently, in some parts of Lottery Trend Country, and our northern neighbor, winter has yet to die. For those of us snapping pictures of loved ones in fields of bluebonnets, snow on the ground in April seems so…alien. Since we here at Lottery Binge have no bluebonnet photos of our own to share, we’re going to talk about another flower. A flower that doesn’t need water or soil. Just a hearty dose of analysis.

For starters, the April 3rd Mega Millions drawing didn’t see an Australia Play encore. That certainly would’ve warmed things up! Instead, to celebrate the theme of winter’s, pardon the lame pun, icy hold, Tuesday night’s Pattern was a visit to winters past.

The Big 800

What a night! Lotto Texas reigned supreme March 24th with the {3-2-1} Pattern. All the myriad ways in which this was achieved will be revealed shortly. After all, we can’t forget about Powerball! There were rumblings of a playback there. Although one never materialized, we got another surprise.
