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.

Saturday’s winning numbers were 10, 13, 22, 36, 50, and 52.

With 198 appearances each, both the {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order have played in 13.5% of the 1464 Lotto Texas drawings. Prior to the July 15th drawing, the Australia Play was last seen in the July 5th, 2017 drawing.

Powerball

With winning numbers 9, 40, 63, 64, 66, and PB 17, the {3-1-1-1} made it 37th appearance.

This Pattern has played in 19.9% of the 186 Powerball drawings, and was last seen in the July 1st, 2017 drawing.

Making its 17th appearance, the [1-1-3-1] General Order has played in 45.9% of the 37 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 9.14% of all Powerball drawings. This General Order appeared alongside the {3-1-1-1} Pattern in the July 1st drawing.

The 1 0 1 0 3 1 Specific Order made its debut, and has now played in 5.88% of the 17 drawings where the [1-1-3-1] General Order has appeared, and in 2.70% of the 37 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared. This Specific Order has played in 0.54% of all Powerball drawings.

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.

This Pattern has played in 16.2% of the 388 Mega Millions drawings, and was last seen in the June 13th, 2017 drawing.

Making its 22nd appearance, the [3-1-1-1] General Order has played in 34.9% of the 63 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 5.67% of all 388 drawings. Prior to Friday night, this General Order was last seen in the May 26th, 2017 drawing.

Now with two appearances, the 3 1 0 1 0 1 Specific Order has played in approximately 9.09% of the 22 drawings where the [3-1-1-1] General Order has appeared, and in 3.17% of the 63 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 0.52% of all 388 drawings. The 3 1 0 1 0 1 Specific Order made its debut in the May 22nd, 2015 drawing.

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. The spread from Friday night was 07:02:17:32. Note that while the difference between numbers was the same in both drawings, the order was different.

Another big draw was the repeat appearances of two Three-Number Combinations. The Combinations were

  • 2, 9, 11 (Debuted June 2nd, 2015)
  • 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.

Lotto Texas

The 759th appearance of the {3-2-1} Pattern was brought about by winning numbers 8, 29, 30, 36, 47, and 52.

This Pattern has played in 52% of the 1460 Lotto Texas drawings.

The 1 3 2 Specific Order made its 115th appearance, and has played in 15.2% of the 759 drawings where the {3-2-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 7.88% of all 1460 drawings. Prior to Saturday, this Specific Order was last seen in the June 7th, 2017 drawing.

The Four-Number Combination of the evening was 29, 30, 36, and 47; it made its debut in the February 20th, 2002 drawing.

Fun fact: February 20th, 2002 was a Palindrome Day.

Powerball

Powerball’s {3-1-1-1} Pattern made its 36th appearance with winning numbers 19, 42, 45, 48, 53, and PB 16.

This Pattern has played in 19.8% of the 182 Powerball drawings, and was last seen in the June 21st, 2017 drawing.

Making its sixteenth appearance, the [1-1-3-1] General Order has played in 44.4% of the 36 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 8.79% of all 182 drawings. Like the {3-1-1-1} Pattern, this General Order previously played in the June 21st drawing.

The 0 1 1 3 0 1 Specific Order made its world debut, and has now played in 6.25% of the sixteen drawings where the [1-1-3-1] General Order has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 2.78% of the 36 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 0.55% of all 182 drawings.

Powerball’s trio of repeating Three-Number Combinations were the following:

  • 19, 42, 48 (Debuted October 29th, 2016)
  • 48, 53, PB 16 (Debuted March 15th, 2017)
  • 45, 48, PB 16 (Debuted March 25th, 2017)

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.

Lotto Texas

Wednesday’s winning numbers were 10, 16, 24, 25, 31, and 36, bringing the total number of appearances of the {4-2} Pattern to 165.

Will there be more repeating Four-Number and Three-Number Combinations on Saturday?

Holy {3-1-1-1}!

The night of June 13th was a change of pace. As the title points out, there was no {2-2-1-1} Pattern encore. Instead, an uncommonly-seen Pattern got its time to shine, and there were two repeating Three-Number Combinations.

The 62nd appearance of the {3-1-1-1} Pattern was made possible by winning numbers 27, 51, 62, 68, 75, and MB 8.

Will there be a {3-1-1-1} Pattern encore in Friday night’s drawing?

Stumbling Upon a Three-Peat and (Repeating) Combinations

June 7th was a busy night for both Lotto Texas and Powerball. Lotto Texas saw a trio of Four-Number Combinations and Powerball saw one repeating Three-Number Combination. Right off the heels of Tuesday’s Mega Millions drawing, the three-peat bug had spread. The question now is, which lottery saw a Pattern three-peat?

Lotto Texas

As it turns out, Lotto Texas saw a three-peat of the {3-2-1} Pattern. The winning numbers this time around were 16, 25, 26, 33, 37, and 43.

This Pattern has now made 754 appearances, and has played in 51.9% of the 1453 Lotto Texas drawings. Recall that the {3-2-1} Pattern was last seen in the June 3rd drawing and earlier still on May 31st.

Making its 114th appearance, the 1 3 2 Specific Order has played in 15.1% of the 754 drawings where the {3-2-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 7.85% of all drawings. This Specific Order was last seen in the April 22nd, 2017 drawing.

Did Powerball also see a Pattern three-peat?

Powerball

Unlike the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern in “sister” Mega Millions, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern did not make a three-peat appearance, or “four-peat”, actually. Instead, Powerball saw the 34th appearance of the {3-1-1-1} Pattern. The winning numbers were 5, 21, 57, 66, 69, and PB 13.

This Pattern has played in 19.4% of the 175 drawings, and was last seen in the May 24th drawing a few weeks ago.

Now with fourteen appearances, the [1-1-3-1] General Order has played in 41.2% of the 34 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 8% of all Powerball drawings. This General Order previously played in the May 20th drawing.

Next up is the 1 1 0 0 3 1 Specific Order, making its second-ever appearance. This Specific Order has played in approximately 14.3% of the 14 drawings where the [1-1-3-1] General Order has appeared, 5.88% of the 34 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 1.14% of all 175 drawings. The 1 1 0 0 3 1 Specific Order made its debut in the September 21st, 2016 drawing.

What will Saturday’s drawing have in store? Will the {3-2-1} Pattern be daring and go for a fourth consecutive appearance? Will a Specific Order make its debut?

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.

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.

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.

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?
