A Pattern’s Icy Grip

In the nearly two years Lottery Binge has been online, one of our favorite things to cover is the Pattern streak. These occur when a Pattern has played at least three consecutive times. Three or four consecutive appearances seems to be the norm, but there have been cases of five or even six appearances.

Although the biggest ones we’ve covered occurred during the summers of 2016 and 2017, February 21st reminded us that these streaks can happen at any time.

Lotto Texas

With winning numbers 9, 15, 17, 35, 49, and 44, the {3-2-1} Pattern made its 795th appearance.

Not a bad way to get over the weekly hump

Will Saturday night be big, or will there be a slump?

Going In for the Encore

One thing about the weekend is that Friday night is just the practice round, right? Friday nights are party nights, sure, but not like Saturday nights. After all, that’s the true heart of the weekend, isn’t it?

Well, it turned out not to be the case this time in Lottery World.

February 9th and 10th were far different beasts. For those of you who follow Mega Millions, you were certainly in for a treat this past Friday. As for Lotto Texas and Powerball? Saturday night was much quieter. The big events of the evening were a Pattern encore and a repeating Combination.

Pre-Super Bowl Playbacks

Ah, the Super Bowl. The teams, the commercials, the over-the-top halftime shows, truly (pigskin) football is the real American pastime. As Lottery Trend Country was getting ready for the Super Bowl, things were not quiet on the lottery front. The theme for February 3rd was “Playback”, and both Lotto Texas and Powerball delivered the goods.

Saturday Belonged to the Playback

Here at Lottery Binge, we don’t just cover the winning numbers. For nearly two years, we’ve brought the scoop on Pattern streaks, and some of the madness beneath them. One such element is the playback. For our new readers, or for our readers who need a refresher, a playback occurs when the Pattern, General Order (not applicable to Lotto Texas), and Specific Order have appeared together in a previous lottery drawing. Lotto Texas delivered on Saturday night, and Powerball came close.

Both the {3-2-1} Pattern and the [3-2-1] General Order were last seen in the November 29th, 2017.

What kept Powerball from seeing a playback was the debut of the 0 3 0 2 0 1 Specific Order. This Specific Order has now played in 25% of the four drawings where the [3-2-1] General Order has appeared. When looking at the 14 drawings where the {3-2-1} Pattern has appeared, this Specific Order has played 7.14% of the time.

Saturday Means “Encore”

A lot can change in a week! In our January 6th post, we covered a crazy large Powerball jackpot. Although jackpots for both Lotto Texas and Powerball were at “normal” levels January 13th, other noteworthy things took place that night. One of these things was a Pattern encore.
