Christmas Pattern Spice

Here in the Northern Hemisphere, the days are getting shorter. If going to work in the dark and/or coming home in the dark isn’t enough, it’s getting colder. Thankfully, the Christmas lights, the hot drinks, and the lottery are just a few things that make us forget about the cold!

With twenty days before Christmas, there were no grand prize winners for either Lotto Texas or Powerball. December 5th saw the jackpots rise to $7.5 million and $217 million, respectively. Even though there were no Pattern encores, the lotteries spiced things up with a couple of uncommonly seen Patterns.

Lotto Texas

The {3-2-1} Pattern streak was short-lived. Instead, the {4-1-1} Pattern made its 175th appearance with winning numbers 8, 10, 13, 16, 30, and 45.

Of the 1609 Lotto Texas drawings, this Pattern has played 10.9% of the time and was last seen November 21st, 2018.

Now with 57 appearances, the 4 1 1 Specific Order has played in 32.6% of the 175 drawings where {4-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Additionally, this Specific Order has played in 3.54% of all 1609 drawings. Prior to Wednesday night, the 4 1 1 Specific Order played on July 4th, 2018.

In the aftermath of the shake-up were two repeating Four-Number Combinations!

  • 8, 10, 16, 45 (Debuted February 21st, 2009)
  • 8, 16, 30, 45 (Debuted June 23rd, 2012)

This Pattern has played in 6.65% of the 331 Powerball drawings and previously played October 27th, 2018.

The [2-3-1] General Order made its eleventh appearance and has now played in 50% of the 22 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern. When taking all 331 drawings into consideration, this General Order has played 3.32% of the time. We last saw the [2-3-1] General Order in the November 18th, 2017 drawing.

The treat of the evening was the world debut of the 2 0 3 0 0 1 Specific Order! This has now played in 9.09% of the eleven drawings where the General Order was [2-3-1]. This Specific Order has also appeared in 4.55% of the 22 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern and in 0.30% of all 331 drawings.

Three-Number Combination(s)

The lone repeating Three-Number Combination was 9, 37, and PB 11.

This Combination made its debut in the December 16th, 2017 drawing.

The only thing consistent in December so far is the rising jackpots. Still, one can’t help but wonder if either of these uncommon Patterns will make an encore Saturday night.

The Playback and Encore Side Dishes

Whether you’re in Bermuda shorts in Honolulu or wearing long johns in New York City, Lottery Binge wants to wish all our U.S. readers a Happy Thanksgiving! If you don’t fill up on turkey, at least fill up on the desserts!

Thanksgiving Eve can be one of the most frustrating days of the year. Whether trapped in traffic or rushing to the store for last-minute items, frustration levels may rival those of the big day itself! Thankfully, neither Lotto Texas nor Powerball get stuck in traffic. Nor do they need to bake in an oven for several hours.

November 21st continued the “busy-ness” of Lotto Texas and Powerball. They more than proved that repeating Four and Three-Number Combinations are just one way to generate excitement. Jackpots that rose to $6.5 million and $155 million, respectively, were another. Lotto Texas took the playback route, whereas Powerball took the Path of the Pattern Encore.

With winning numbers 17, 24, 39, 43, 45, and 53, the {4-1-1} Pattern made its 174th appearance.

Given that there have been 1605 Lotto Texas drawings, this Pattern has played 10.8% of the time.

Now with 60 appearances, the 1 1 4 Specific Order has played in 34.5% of the 174 drawings where {4-1-1} was the winning Pattern. When taking all 1605 drawings into consideration, this Specific Order has played 3.74% of the time.

Both the {4-1-1} Pattern and the 1 1 4 Specific Order previously played on November 10th, 2018!

Four-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Four-Number Combinations Wednesday night.

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

Powerball was buzzworthy in two ways. Not only did the jackpot rise to a value that ties (yes, ties) with Mega Millions, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern played for the fourth time in a row! The 118th appearance of the Pattern was thanks to winning numbers 7, 14, 23, 38, 55, and PB 18.

Of the 327 Powerball drawings, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has played in 36.1% of them.

This Specific Order has also played in 5.93% of the 118 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 2.14% of all 327 drawings. The 2 1 1 1 0 1 Specific Order previously played on a holiday! More specifically, July 4th, 2018.

Three-Number Combination(s)

No repeating Three-Number Combinations were to be found this time.

With Thanksgiving coming early this year, it’s easy to forget that there’s still another week left. The start of the Christmas shopping season being the day after doesn’t help. The grand prizes for Lotto Texas and Powerball will make excellent Christmas presents for who ever wins them! Will these grand prizes rise again Saturday night with another Lotto Texas playback or a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern five-peat in Powerball?

Big Things in “Small” Lotteries

Truthfully, none of the Big Three lotteries covered in this blog (Powerball, Lotto Texas, Mega Millions) are small. Yet, even among giants, there’s a “shorty”. Lotto Texas never seems to unleash monsters or enthrall nations with powerful spells. Despite being the smallest, it has its own quirks and is more than capable of throwing punches. After all, it did have a Pattern play eight times in a row!

There was nothing that grandiose November 10th. Nevertheless, Lotto Texas still had the biggest plays of the night, and with a jackpot now at $5.75 million, its respectable image was maintained. Powerball, notorious for being a powerhouse, crossed the $100 million threshold ($106 million), and largely kept to itself.

Both the {4-1-1} Pattern and the 1 1 4 Specific Order played on October 24th, 2018.  Although the {3-2-1} Pattern streak was broken, a playback was just as dandy!

Four-Number Combination(s)

In addition to the playback, the repeating Four-Number Combination 37, 38, 40, and 54 made its second appearance.

This Combination made its debut in the June 14th, 2017 drawing.

So far, the only thing that has been consistent in November has been rising jackpots. Yet, a few of these nights have been accompanied by Pattern streaks, especially in Lotto Texas. Powerball did see its most common Pattern, and one tried and true method to stay on top is through Pattern streaks. Could Wednesday see an encore of either the {4-1-1} or {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern?

The Strengthening Spell

One down. One to go.

Powerball’s spell tightened its hold on the land October 24th. The prize rose to $750 million! Lotto Texas received a boost as well, climbing to $14.5 million. Although it may be the “runt” of the lotteries, it more than held its own.

Powerball

Powerball’s method of attack was the {3-1-1-1} Pattern encore. Fresh from this past Saturday, it proved useful enough for the spell to be cast once more. This time, the winning numbers were 3, 21, 45, 53, 56, and PB 22.

A helping of repeating Three-Number Combination never hurt, right? The Combination was 45, 53, 56, and it debuted in the March 24th, 2018 drawing.

The weekend is close at hand, and Halloween is not that far behind. Will Powerball amass more power Saturday night, or will the spell be broken?

Under a Jackpot Spell

A madness has gripped the country. There is at least one billion dollars’ worth of jackpots to be won! Mega Millions leads the pack, but Powerball is determined to catch up. The jackpot over there climbed to $430 million!

Lotto Texas has a way to go before it reaches those crazy-rich heights. Still, $12.75 million isn’t small change, either!

What Lotto Texas “lacks” in jackpot, it makes up with moxie, and by moxie, we mean “Pattern streak”. The {3-2-1} Pattern went for the three-peat with winning numbers 18, 19, 23, 31, 46, and 47, bringing the number of appearances to 836.

Now you’re probably thinking a playback happened, yes?

Well, no, but, there was something even better: the world debut of the 1 0 0 0 4 1 Specific Order! This Specific Order has now played in 25% of the four drawings where the General Order was [1-4-1] and in 14.3% of the seven drawings where {4-1-1} was the winning Pattern.

  • 4, 27, 35, and 53, which debuted November 29, 2008.

Like I said before, it’s not often that we see a Four-Number Combination repeat a short while after its debut.

 

Powerball

On the same night as Lotto Texas, Powerball’s winning numbers were 24, 61, 63, 64, 69 and PB 18.

Doldrums-B-Gone

The jackpots for Lotto Texas and Powerball inched upwards once more. Their respective jackpots are now $5.75 million and $70 million. But that’s not the focus of today’s post. Not really.

Let it be known that the night of August 22nd was the night when Lotto Texas and Powerball joined forces and cast off the yoke of the “August Doldrums”! How was this achieved? Well, the introduction alone can’t do justice to what happened.

Similar Spread

Lotto Texas also saw a similar spread. This happens when the numbers in the spreads are the same, but the orders are different. The spread for Wednesday night was 14:12:01:13:02. This is similar to the one that occurred on June 4th, 2008. That night, the winning numbers were 4, 6, 18, 19, 32, and 46, with a spread of 02:12:01:13:14.

The {4-1-1} on the Playback

Today’s post is going to start with a fun fact about July 11th. In the U.S., it’s National 7-11 Day. The “holiday” is commemorated by the convenience stores offering free small Slurpees. In lieu of these drinks, Lotto Texas and Powerball offered rising jackpots of $10.25 million and $100 million, respectively. With Powerball inching closer to “insanely large jackpot” territory (Mega Millions is already there), things got sweeter when after so many instances of coming close, a playback finally occurred.

Neither the {4-1-1} nor {3-2-1} Patterns are commonly seen. Will either of them see an encore Saturday night? Could another playback take place?

Lotto Texas and Powerball put on their own fireworks show Wednesday night. In addition to rising jackpots – $9 million and $80 million, respectively – there was the display of a Pattern encore and a fine showing of a playback.
