{2-1-1-1-1} Blocker

The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern did not, repeat, did not make a fifth consecutive appearance in the September 8th drawing. Instead, we saw a Pattern that, although has played a respectable number of times, hasn’t played nearly as often. This Pattern was also accompanied by two repeating Three-Number Combinations.

The Pattern of the evening was {3-1-1-1}. With winning numbers 4, 5, 14, 26, 73, and MB 14, this Pattern has now played 67 times.

Will the {3-1-1-1} Pattern be bold enough to make an encore in Tuesday’s drawing?

School has started up once again in our part of Lottery Trend Country. Be it heavy morning traffic or a storm brewing in the Gulf, there isn’t much that can deter Mega Millions.

The Big 400

Summer vacation’s just about over in our part of Lottery Trend Country. What better way to say “Sayonara” to summer than hitting a milestone? The night of August 18th was the 400th Mega Millions drawing. To be more specific, it was the 400th drawing with number balls 1 through 75, and Mega Balls (MBs) 1 through 15. Although we didn’t see a Pattern encore, there was a repeating Three-Number Combination.

Friday’s winning numbers were 1, 31, 34, 40, 75, and MB 6, bringing the number of appearances of the {3-1-1-1} Pattern to 65.

Will the {3-1-1-1} Pattern make an encore appearance to kick off the school year?

Breaking Up the Streak

The {3-2-1} and {2-1-1-1-1} Patterns parted ways yet again on August 12th. The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern streak in Powerball came to an end, yet the {3-2-1} Pattern made an encore in Lotto Texas. Joining the {3-2-1} Pattern were two repeating Four-Number Combinations.

Lotto Texas

With 766 appearances, the {3-2-1} Pattern continued to be the most commonly seen Pattern. Saturday night’s winning numbers were 5, 8, 16, 24, 25, and 46.

To see when the 3 2 1 Specific Order previously played, we need to go back to the June 17th, 2017 drawing.

Without “2”

After a month, heck, a whole summer’s worth of streaks for the {2-1-1-1-1} and {2-2-1-1} Patterns, the {3-1-1-1} Pattern made itself known in the August 11th drawing. Believe it or not, it was this very Pattern that broke up the streak madness last time. On Friday night, it made someone in Illinois wealthier.

Another Cool Saturday Night

Halfway through the month of July and we saw another cool down Saturday night. The biggest plays July 15th were an Australia Play in Lotto Texas and a new Specific Order in Powerball. There were no repeating Four-Number or Three-Number Combinations to speak of in Lotto Texas or Powerball, respectively.

Will next week see more Australia Plays? Will Pattern streaks be established?

The Streak is Gone

The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern didn’t go for a sixth consecutive appearance in the July 7th drawing. If it had, then it would have tied the record set last summer. What a firework show that would have been! Nevertheless, Friday night’s drawing provided its own fireworks. Although a less common Pattern played, there was more bubbling underneath the surface.

The winning numbers were 2, 9, 11, 28, 60, and MB 10, bringing the total number of appearances of the {3-1-1-1} Pattern to 63.

Seeing a Specific Order that hadn’t played in over two years wasn’t the only big draw of the evening.

Friday night’s winning numbers share a similar spread with the May 23rd, 2014 drawing. That drawing’s winning numbers were 12, 14, 21, 38, 70, and MB 15, with a spread of 02:07:17:32.

  • 11, 60, MB 10 (Debuted March 17th, 2017)

Will the {3-1-1-1} Pattern make an encore appearance Tuesday? Will there be another similar spread next week?

Combination Cannon (and Corn)

Compared to this past Wednesday, Saturday night was an explosion of numbers. Lotto Texas started the month of July with the third consecutive appearance of the {3-2-1} Pattern and a repeating Four-Number Combination that hadn’t been seen in over fifteen years. The (usually) comparatively mellow Powerball saw the debut of a Specific Order and three repeating Three-Number Combinations.

Now, about the corn. What does that have to do with today’s post? That shall be answered in a moment, but first, let’s get the July 1st analysis out of the way.

In contrast to the Lotto Texas repeating Four-Number Combination, these Combinations made their debuts very recently.

Now, the answer to today’s riddle: What does corn have to do with Lottery Binge? Well, the Fourth of July is only a few days away, and regardless of political leanings, people from coast to coast relish in fireworks, a day off from work, and barbecue. No Fourth of July cookout is complete without corn! Yes, corn! Corn on the cob roasted, or simply straight off the stalk, there’s nothing like the taste of organically grown sweet corn.

Sweet, sweet corn

The corn you see here was harvested yesterday afternoon out of my dad’s garden. No pesticides here! He let Mother Nature do the work, and she was mighty kind this year.

Getting back to the lottery side of things, will Lotto Texas continue its {3-2-1} Pattern streak? Will another Specific Order make its debut in Powerball?

Combination Summer Jam

June 21st was the official start of summer, and what better way to start the season than with not-so-commonly played Patterns? How about more repeating Four-Number and Three-Number Combinations? Just as it was on Saturday, Wednesday night had two repeating Four-Number Combinations in Lotto Texas, and one repeating Three-Number Combination in Powerball.
