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.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

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)

The repeating Four-Number Combination 9, 14, 34, and 42 was the cherry on top.

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.

Powerball

The {3-1-1-1} Pattern made its 57th appearance with winning numbers 17, 23, 26, 46, 68, and PB 20.

Out of 277 Powerball drawings, this Pattern has played in 20.6% of them. This Pattern was last seen on May 19th, 2018.

The [3-1-1-1] General Order was also last seen in the earlier-mentioned May 19th drawing. This General Order has now played in 28.1% of the 57 drawings where {3-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. When looking at all 277 drawings, this General Order has played 5.78% of the time.

Now with five appearances, the 0 3 0 1 1 1 Specific Order has played in 31.25% of the 16 drawings where the General Order was [3-1-1-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 8.77% of the 57 drawings where {3-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 1.81% of all 277 drawings. Unlike what we saw with Lotto Texas, there was no playback. 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?

Playing it “Safe” with the Most Common Patterns

Memorial Day weekend is in full swing.

The NBA Playoffs are heating up (Both Eastern and Western Conferences are going to Game 7!)

Things would’ve heated up even more the night of May 26th if either Lotto Texas or Powerball saw a jackpot winner. The jackpots now stand at $5.75 million and $60 million, respectively. But, the night stayed on the “Hot, but not blazing hot”, side. Both lotteries saw their most common Patterns. For those of you out there who love repeating Four-Number and Three-Number Combinations, the night offered up a treat or two.

Lotto Texas

With winning numbers 3, 14, 18, 35, 43, and 44, the {3-2-1} Pattern made its 809th appearance.

Four-Number Combination(s)

The lone repeating Four-Number Combination was 3, 14, 43, and 44.

This Combination had the honor of showing up in the last Lotto Texas drawing of 2014. Would you believe that that drawing fell on December 31st?

Did Powerball get any visits from New Year’s Eves past? Let’s find out.

The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern was thanks to winning numbers 1, 21, 31, 45, 49, and PB 21.

This Pattern has now played 96 times. With that said, it has played in 34.8% of the 276 Powerball drawings, and was last seen on April 25th, 2018.

The [1-1-1-2-1] General Order, with its 27th appearance, has now played in 28.125% of the 96 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Taking all 276 drawings into account, this General Order has played 9.78% of the time. We last saw the [1-1-1-2-1] General Order in the January 13th, 2018 drawing.

Now with five appearances, the 1 1 1 2 0 1 Specific Order has played in 18.5% of the 27 drawings where [1-1-1-2-1] was the General Order. This Specific Order has also played in 5.21% of the 96 drawings where the winning Pattern was {2-1-1-1-1}. Finally, when looking at all 276 drawings, this Pattern has played 1.81% of the time. The 1 1 1 2 0 1 Specific Order previously played on January 10th, 2018.

Three-Number Combination(s)

The lone repeating Three-Number Combination was 21, 31, and PB 21.

Will either the {2-1-1-1-1} or {3-2-1} Pattern end the month with a Pattern encore?

(Almost) Mirror Twins?

Another Cinco de Mayo has come and gone. Lotto Texas and Powerball were joined at the hip this time, or at least wore matching tops. And yet, it was Lotto Texas that saw much of the action Saturday night. It had five beers, a tequila, and All-You-Can-Eat Fajitas while Powerball settled for some chips/salsa and a margarita.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

The {3-2-1} Pattern played for the fifth time in a row, with winning numbers 15, 19, 24, 27, 42, 51.

Lotto Texas went to town May 5th. Source: lotterytrend.com.

This made for the 808th appearance of the Pattern. Given that there have been 1548 Lotto Texas drawings to date, this Pattern has played 52.2% of the time.

Now with 122 appearances, the 1 3 2 Specific Order has played in 15.1% of the 808 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern. This Specific Order has also played in 7.88% of all 1548 drawings. Prior to the Cinco de Mayo drawing, we last saw the 1 3 2 Specific Order on April 21st, 2018.

Similar Spread

Fifth time is the best time it seems to throw in a similar spread! The spread for Saturday night’s drawing was 04:05:03:15:09. This is similar to the spread that showed up in the March 19th, 2011 drawing. The winning numbers were 15, 24, 29, 32, 36, and 51 and the spread was 09:05:03:04:15. Notice that although the differences between numbers were the same, the orders were different.

Four-Number Combination(s)

A repeating Four-Number Combination added more pep into Lotto Texas’s step:

Lotto Texas may have been the life of the party, but there were a few interesting observations in Powerball as well.

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

Right off the heels of the May 2nd drawing, the {2-2-1-1} Pattern made an encore. Yes, that means the Patterns for both Lotto Texas and Powerball played together that night! Saturday night’s winning numbers were 14, 29, 36, 57, 61, and PB 17.

Powerball was the quiet one. Source: lotterytrend-powerball.com.

Given that this Pattern has now played 79 times, and that there have been 270 Powerball drawings, this Pattern has played in 29.3% of them.

With 24 appearances, the [1-2-2-1] General Order has played in 30.4% of the 79 drawings where {2-2-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 8.89% of all 270 drawings. This General Order was last seen on April 21st, 2018. And wouldn’t ya know it? That was the last time we saw Lotto Texas’s 1 3 2 Specific Order (before Saturday).

The “copycatting” was broken with the 1 0 2 0 2 1 Specific Order. Now with three appearances, this Specific Order has played in 12.5% of the 24 drawings where the General Order was [1-2-2-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 3.80% of the 79 drawings where {2-2-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 1.11% of all 270 drawings. We last saw the 1 0 2 0 2 1 Specific Order on July 2nd, 2016.

Three-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations in Powerball.

Could the {3-2-1} and {2-2-1-1} Patterns be joined together on Wednesday night?

Return of the Playback

For Lotto Texas, the month of April ended with a playback. And wouldn’t you know it? A playback happened again on May 2nd! Which Pattern-Specific Order pair saw this phenomenon? Well, it wasn’t the {2-2-2} Pattern/2 2 2 Specific Order. That would’ve been an Australia Play, a.k.a. “The Ultimate Playback”.

Powerball avoided the allure of not only the playback, but grand plays in general. It found normalcy to be quite alluring.

The {3-2-1} Pattern made its fourth consecutive appearance with winning numbers 1, 2, 16, 27, 36, and 38.

Given its 807th appearance, this Pattern has played in 52.2% of the 1547 drawings so far in Lotto Texas.

By the powers of deduction, that means the 3 2 1 Specific Order made an encore. Now with 144 appearances, this Specific Order has played in 17.8% of the 807 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern. This Specific Order has also played in 9.31% of all 1547 drawings.

Four-Number Combination(s)

Once again, there were no repeating Four-Number Combinations.

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

And now it’s time to talk of Powerball’s comparatively “normal” night. With winning numbers 5, 14, 31, 40, 50, and PB 6, the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has played 78 times.

A new Pattern was the “safest” play. Source: lotterytrend-powerball.com.

Given that there have been 269 Powerball drawings, this Pattern has played in 29% of them. Prior to Wednesday night, the {2-2-1-1} Pattern played on April 21st, 2018.

The [2-2-1-1] General Order, now with 30 appearances, has played in 38.5% of the 78 drawings where the winning Pattern was {2-2-1-1}. And, this General Order has played in 11.2% of all 269 drawings. The [2-2-1-1] General Order was last seen on February 14th, 2018.

Now with three appearances, the 2 0 2 1 0 1 Specific Order has played in 10% of the 30 drawings where the General Order was [2-2-1-1] and in 3.85% of the 78 drawings where {2-2-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Finally, when looking at all 269 drawings, this Pattern has played 1.12% of the time. The 2 0 2 1 0 1 Specific Order was last seen over two years ago in the February 6th, 2016 drawing.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Powerball was so normal that there were no repeating Three-Number Combinations.

Will Saturday night be a sense of déjà vu, or will other Patterns get their shot?

The {3-2-1} Pattern Takeover

There are times when Lotto Texas and Powerball are joined at the hip. Patterns that played together one night will go on to make an encore, or even establish a Pattern streak, together. April 28th was something like that. That night, the {3-2-1} Pattern reigned supreme, showing up in not just Lotto Texas, but Powerball, too. However, the Pattern meant different things in different lotteries.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

What makes the 806th appearance of the {3-2-1} Pattern is that it was a three-peat. With winning numbers 7, 12, 13, 30, 33, and 38, this Pattern has played in 52.1% of the 1546 Lotto Texas drawings.

The {3-2-1} Pattern is second-to-none in Lotto Texas, and it looks to remain this way for a long time.

Now with 143 appearances, the 3 2 1 Specific Order has played in 17.7% of the 806 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern. This Specific Order has also played in 9.25% of all 1546 drawings. And, it accompanied the {3-2-1} Pattern in this past Wednesday’s drawing. An Australia Play was not meant to be, but a playback was just as nice.

Four-Number Combination(s)

In fact, the playback was so nice that there were no repeating Four-Number Combinations.

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

One way the {3-2-1} Pattern in Powerball differs from that in Lotto Texas is by statistics. Although this Pattern is the most commonly seen in Lotto Texas, it’s one of the least commonly seen in Powerball. Saturday night saw the 19th appearance of this Pattern with winning numbers 20, 22, 28, 45, 50, and PB 8.

{3-2-1} Pattern the Second. Source: lotterytrend-powerball.com.

Given that there have been 268 Powerball drawings, the {3-2-1} Pattern has played in 7.09% of them. This {3-2-1} Pattern was last seen on April 18th, 2018. It’s tied with the {1-1-1-1-1-1} Pattern in terms of the number of appearances.

With nine appearances, the [3-2-1] General Order has played in 47.4% of the 19 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern and in 3.36% of all 268 drawings. Prior to Saturday night, this General Order accompanied the {3-2-1} Pattern in the April 18th drawing mentioned earlier.

Note that Lottery Trend doesn’t analyze General Orders for Lotto Texas.

Now with three appearances, the 0 3 0 2 0 1 Specific Order has played in 33.3% of the nine drawings where [3-2-1] was the General Order. This Specific Order has also played in 15.8% of the 19 drawings where the winning Pattern was {3-2-1}. Finally, when looking at all 268 drawings, this Specific Order has played 1.12% of the time. The 0 3 0 2 0 1 Specific Order was last seen on February 3rd, 2018.

Three-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations this time.

May is going to be a big month, what with the school year winding down and the NBA playoffs. Can Lotto Texas and Powerball keep up? Could these {3-2-1} Patterns show up together again Wednesday night?

With Their Patterns Combined

It’s Captain Lottery!

Okay, maybe not.

Lotto Texas and Powerball may not join forces to save the world, but they do provide entertainment every Wednesday (and Saturday) night without fail. Although this is a biweekly routine, anyone who plays the lottery enough (and has been following this blog!) knows that what happens is never routine. Some nights are bursting with a crazy explosion of Pattern streaks, repeating Combinations, or a mixture of the two, while others see nary a spark. April 25th fell somewhere in the middle, sliding more towards the “crazy explosion” side. Both lotteries saw their most commonly seen Patterns, and there was some encore action.

Don’t worry; you don’t need to binge on blog archives to know which Pattern saw the encore.

The {3-2-1} Pattern’s secret to staying on top is by establishing Pattern streaks, or at least making an encore. Right off the heels of this past Saturday night, this Pattern made its 805th appearance with winning numbers 2, 5, 12, 26, 31, and 43.

Four-Number Combination(s)

Lotto Texas decided a {3-2-1} Pattern encore was sufficient. Therefore, no repeating Four-Number Combinations.

Powerball

With winning numbers 17, 18, 39, 56, 64 and PB 12, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has played 95 times.

This Specific Order has also played in 5.26% of the 95 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 1.87% of all 267 drawings. Prior to Wednesday night, the 0 2 1 1 1 1 Specific Order played in the October 25th, 2017 drawing. That was exactly six months ago.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Powerball saw two repeating Three-Number Combinations:

Lotto Texas and Powerball will see their last drawings for April this Saturday. As the month winds down and the summer countdowns start, will either the {3-2-1} or {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern show up again? Could there even be playback action?

Fighting the Freeze

Things are starting to warm up in Houston and other parts of the U.S. Whether or not we’re going to board the weather roller coaster again anytime soon is best left to the professionals. Meanwhile, we can say that both Lotto Texas and Powerball were determined to heat things up April 21st. “Quiet” was not the word of the evening!

Four-Number Combination(s)

Repeating Four-Number Combinations are a fail-safe way to spice it up. There were three of them this time:

  • 17, 24, 49, 53 (Debuted April 23rd, 2016)
  • 17, 24, 28, 49 (Debuted November 7th, 2007)
  • 20, 24, 28, 49 (Debuted November 11th, 2009)

You could say Lotto Texas and Powerball were joined at the hip Saturday night.

With its 23rd appearance, the [1-2-2-1] General Order has played in 29.9% of the 77 drawings where the winning Pattern was {2-2-1-1} and in 8.66% of all 266 drawings. This General Order was seen alongside the {2-2-1-1} Pattern in the earlier-mentioned April 7th drawing.

Alas, a playback was not meant to be. Now with three appearances, the 0 0 1 2 2 1 Specific Order has played in 13% of the 23 drawings where the General Order was [1-2-2-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 3.90% of the 77 drawings where {2-2-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Finally, when looking at all 266 drawings, this General Order has played 1.13% of the time. We last saw the 0 0 1 2 2 1 Specific Order in the October 18th, 2017 drawing.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Along for the ride were three repeating Three-Number Combinations:

  • 40, 69, PB 19 (Debuted January 23rd, 2016)

Will either the {3-2-1} Pattern or the {2-2-1-1} Pattern be bold enough to establish a Pattern streak to end the month?

The Midweek Playback

The lottery world is a lot like the “real” one these days. Just as it’s been snow one day and warmth the next, it’s chilly Mega Millions followed by a joint effort by Lotto Texas and Powerball to warm things up. April 18th brought us the ultimate playback and the debut of a Specific Order.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

Lotto Texas is hoppin’ mad for Australia Plays these days! It was just last week, April 11th to be precise, that we last saw one. With winning numbers 10, 14, 27, 32, 45, and 49, both the {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order have played 214 times.

The 3 2 0 0 0 1 Specific Order made its debut and has now played in 12.5% of the eight drawings where the [3-2-1] was the General Order. This Specific Order has also played in 5.56% of the 18 drawings where the winning Pattern was {3-2-1}. Finally, when looking at all 265 drawings, this Specific Order has played 0.38% of the time.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Even though Lotto Texas/Powerball nights have had more activity than Mega Millions these days, Powerball didn’t see any repeating Three-Number Combinations, either.

Will Lotto Texas and Powerball continue to warm things up Saturday night? Will it be a night of encores and repeating Three and Four-Number Combinations?

A Change in Programming

April 14th was a night like no other. At least, not like any other we’ve seen in a while. There were a couple of commonalities between Lotto Texas and Powerball. One was that both lotteries saw one of their least commonly-seen Patterns.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

With winning numbers 1, 2, 5, 29, 35, and 36, the {3-3} Pattern made its 130th appearance.

Given that there have been 1542 Lotto Texas drawings, this Pattern has played in 8.43% of them, and was last seen on February 28th, 2018.

Now with 39 appearances, the 3 3 0 Specific Order has played in 30% of the 130 drawings where {3-3} was the winning Pattern. This Specific Order has also played in 2.53% of all 1542 drawings. Prior to Saturday night, we last saw this Specific Order on April 19th, 2017.

Four-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Four-Number Combinations this time.

Powerball

The {3-2-1} Pattern made its 17th appearance with winning numbers 17, 19, 26, 61, 62, and PB 15.

Powerball’s {3-2-1} Pattern is not very common. Source: lotterytrend-powerball.com.

This Pattern has played in 6.44% of the 264 Powerball drawings, and was last seen on March 10th, 2018.

Note that unlike the {3-2-1} Pattern in Lotto Texas, this version is one of the least-commonly played in Powerball.

With seven appearances, the [3-2-1] General Order has played in 41.2% of the 17 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern. This General Order has also played in 2.65% of all 264 drawings. We last saw the [3-2-1] General Order alongside the {3-2-1} Pattern in the earlier-mentioned March 10th drawing.

The 0 3 0 0 2 1 Specific Order made its second-ever appearance, meaning that this Specific Order has played in 28.6% of the seven drawings where the General Order of the evening was [3-2-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 11.8% of the 17 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern. Finally, when looking at all 264 drawings, this Specific Order has played 0.76% of the time. The 0 3 0 0 2 1 Specific Order made its debut in the November 29th, 2017 drawing.

Three-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations.

For the past few months, at least one of the lotteries would have a repeating Combination bonanza, either of the Three-Number kind for Powerball, or the Four-Number kind for Lotto Texas. This is the first time since January 27th, 2018 that there were no repeating Four-Number or Three-Number Combinations.

Will either the {3-3} Pattern or the (Powerball) {3-2-1} Pattern make an encore appearance Wednesday night?

Getting Back on the Bike

What makes riding a bike wonderful, aside from the exercise, is that you never forget how to ride one. Something similar happened on April 7th. The {3-2-1} Pattern of Lotto Texas fame saw a Pattern encore. Powerball didn’t see one, but there were some rumblings amongst the Combinations.

Given that here have been 1540 Lotto Texas drawings, this Pattern has played in 52.1% of them. Could it be that this Pattern is trying to re-establish a Pattern streak?
