A Night of Wednesdays Past

First, we would like to wish our U.S. readers a Happy Thanksgiving. May the pigskin fly and the turkey be bountiful.

Some things rest for no man, and lottery drawings are some of those things. Lotto Texas and Powerball flipped the script November 22nd. There weren’t any Pattern encores, but, each lottery’s Pattern was last seen on a previous Wednesday in November. There was another switch-up, but you’ll have to keep reading to find out what it was.

Lotto Texas

Lotto Texas contributed to the holiday spirit with the not-so-commonly seen {4-1-1} Pattern. With winning numbers, 7, 22, 24, 33, 34, and 50, this Pattern has now played 166 times.

As we barrel ahead to the Christmas shopping season, will there be any Pattern encores or other switch-ups Saturday night?

Encore at the Halfway Point

November 15th was an important day. It marked the halfway point of the month, and a reminder that (U.S.) Thanksgiving is right around the corner. To all you U.S. readers, don’t panic! You’ve got about a week left to make plans. Lottery-wise, Lotto Texas had all the fun.

It was nearly four years ago when this Combination made its debut. More specifically, it was the December 11th, 2013 drawing.

Powerball

The 0 1 1 3 0 1 Specific Order made its debut this past summer, in the July 1st, 2017 drawing.

Three-Number Combination(s)

The repeating Three-Number Combination lull continued Wednesday night.

Will the {4-1-1-1} Pattern go for a three-peat on Saturday? Will Powerball see a repeating Three-Number Combination?

 

Something New for Saturday

Veteran’s Day/Remembrance Day is a time to remember the veterans of wars past and present. Perhaps it was fitting that neither Lotto Texas nor Powerball saw Pattern encores November 11th. One Lottery saw its most common Pattern. The other Pattern, while not nearly so common, has had decent showings.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

With winning numbers 16, 19, 21, 22, 36, and 53, the {4-1-1} Pattern made its 164th appearance.

Four-Number Combination(s)

For the first time since November 1st, there were no repeating Four-Number Combinations.

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

The winning numbers were 4, 6, 16, 30, 56, and PB 18. This brought the number of appearances of the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern to 81.

The 2 1 1 1 0 1 Specific Order made its fourth appearance, and has now played in 21.1% of the 19 drawings where the [2-1-1-1-1] General Order appeared.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Just as it was Wednesday night, there were no repeating Three-Number Combinations.

Will either Pattern go for an encore this coming Wednesday?

Playback & Encore

After a Four-Number Combination appeared in Powerball this past weekend, anything right after would pale in comparison, right? Even though the night of October 11th wasn’t as explosive, there were still some big plays. The {3-2-1} Pattern streak was shattered in Lotto Texas. Meanwhile, Powerball saw a Pattern encore. And then some.

Will either the {4-1-1} or {3-1-1-1} Patterns make another appearance Saturday night?

A Big Playback and a World Debut

Summer has come and gone for Lotto Texas and Powerball. Although there were no encores, nor repeating Four-Number or Three-Number Combinations, there were a couple of interesting plays September 20th.

Lotto Texas

With winning numbers 7, 12, 13, 15, 19, and 37, the {4-1-1} Pattern made its 162nd appearance in Lotto Texas.

To date, there have been 1483 drawings, and this Pattern has played in 10.9% of them.

Now with 52 appearances, the 4 1 1 Specific Order has played in 32.1% of the 162 drawings where the {4-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 3.51% of all 1483 drawings.

What made Wednesday night’s Lotto Texas drawing interesting was that both the {4-1-1} Pattern and the 4 1 1 Specific Order were seen together earlier this month! More specifically, on September 2nd, 2017.

Powerball

Wednesday night’s winning numbers for Powerball were 39, 48, 53, 67, 68, and PB 26, marking the 61st appearance of the {2-2-1-1} Pattern.

This Specific Order has also played in 1.64% of the 61 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 0.49% of all 205 drawings.

Will Lotto Texas and Powerball welcome fall with big plays of their own Saturday night, or will they welcome the season with little fanfare?

The 4-1-1 on Major Plays

There were no encores for either Lotto Texas or Powerball the night of September 16th. Yet, it was far from a quiet night. Although Lotto Texas saw a repeating Four-Number Combination, it was Powerball that saw the biggest play of the evening. One of the biggest was the appearance of a Pattern so rare that it had only played twice before, and made one player $133 million richer.

Lotto Texas

With winning numbers 4, 9, 18, 36, 40, and 41, the {3-2-1} Pattern made its 772nd appearance.

This Combination made its debut in the August 6th, 2016 drawing. Compared to most repeating Four-Number Combinations we’ve discussed, this one is recent.

Powerball

For the third time ever, the {4-1-1} Pattern played in Powerball! The winning numbers were 17, 18, 24, 25, 31, and PB 24.

This Pattern has now played in 1.47% of the 204 Powerball drawings. We last saw this Pattern over a year ago. More specifically, the August 17th, 2016 drawing.

With its second appearance, the [4-1-1] General Order has played in 67% of the three drawings where the {4-1-1} Pattern has played, and in 0.98% of all 204 drawings. This General Order made its debut in the April 13th, 2016 drawing.

Making its world debut in Powerball was the 0 4 1 0 0 1 Specific Order. This Specific Order has now played in 50% of the two drawings where the [4-1-1] General Order has appeared, and in 33% of the three drawings where the {4-1-1} Pattern has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 0.49% of all 204 drawings.

So far, it looks like Lotto Texas and Powerball are getting ready for a big send-off to summer. Will the momentum continue into next week?

Pre-Labor Day 4-1-1

Lotto Texas and Powerball kicked off September, and Labor Day weekend, with some not-commonly-seen Patterns. To make things even more interesting, one of these lotteries saw an Australia Play the night of September 2nd. In fact, it hadn’t seen one in nearly six months! Can you guess which one?

Lotto Texas

Making its 161st appearance, the {4-1-1} Pattern has now played in 10.9% of the 1478 Lotto Texas drawings. The winning numbers were 2, 10, 14, 15, 31, and 38.

Prior to Saturday night, we last saw this Pattern in the July 8th, 2017 drawing.

Now with 51 appearances, the 4 1 1 Specific Order has played in 31.7% of the 161 drawings where the {4-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 3.45% of all 1478 drawings. This Specific Order previously played in the March 29th, 2017 drawing.

There were two repeating Four-Number Combinations:

  • 2, 15, 31, 38 (Debuted March 17th, 2007)
  • 2, 14, 31, 38 (Debuted August 31st, 2016)

    Two repeating Four-Number Combinations stick together. Source: lotterytrend.com.

Powerball

By process of elimination, ‘twas Powerball that saw the Australia Play. This was fitting, as Saturday night had the 200th drawing with number balls 1 through 69, and Powerballs 1- 26. With winning numbers 6, 21, 41, 52, 62, and PB 26, this was the 17th time that the {1-1-1-1-1-1} Pattern appeared.

This also meant the 17th appearance of the [1-1-1-1-1-1] General Order and the 1 1 1 1 1 1 Specific Order. All three have now played in 8.5% of the 200 Powerball drawings, and were last seen in the March 11th, 2017 drawing.

As momentous as it was to see an Australia Play, there were no repeating Three-Number Combinations.

Will either the {4-1-1} or {1-1-1-1-1-1} Patterns make an encore appearance in next Wednesday’s drawing? Will other rare Patterns get a spot in the limelight?

The Big Combination Freeze

Things got even chillier July 8th. For the past few weeks, the Lotto Texas/Powerball posts covered at least one lottery having either a repeating Four-Number or Three-Number Combination, respectively. Saturday night was the first time since June 14th, 2017 that there were no repeating Four-Number or Three-Number Combinations. Just as well, for the Fourth of July has come and gone, and those who took mini-vacations are making their way back to work.

Lotto Texas

The {4-1-1} Pattern made its 160th appearance with winning numbers 8, 33, 38, 43, 51, and 53.

Other than the lack of repeating Three-Number Combinations, one of the biggest highlights of Powerball was the debut of the 2 0 2 0 1 1 Specific Order. This Specific Order has now played in 4.55% of the 22 drawings where the [2-2-1-1] General Order has appeared. It has also played in 1.79% of the 56 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared and 0.54% of all drawings.

Will the cool down continue into next week, or will things heat up a bit?

Getting the 4-1-1 and Then Some

After a quiet Tuesday night, Mega Millions kicked it up a thousand notches in the June 16th drawing. Friday night saw the appearance of one of the least commonly seen Patterns. While that’s a big deal in and of itself here at Lottery Binge, that wasn’t the biggest draw of the evening. There was more to this Pattern than appearing after a lengthy period of absence. What made this Pattern interesting was that this time around, a repeating Four-Number Combination made an appearance. Such a thing is a rarity in Mega Millions.

The {4-1-1} Pattern made its thirteenth appearance with winning numbers 18, 22, 26, 30, 44, and MB 9.

This Pattern has now played in 3.40% of the 382 Mega Millions drawing and was last seen in the October 11th, 2016 drawing.

Making its seventh appearance, the [4-1-1] General Order has now played in 53.8% of the 13 drawings where the {4-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 1.83% of all 382 drawings. Like the {4-1-1} Pattern, this General Order was also last seen in the October 11th drawing.

Now with two appearances, the 0 4 1 0 0 1 Specific Order has played in 28.6% of the seven drawings where the [4-1-1] General Order has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 15.4% of the 13 drawings where the {4-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 0.52% of all 382 drawings. The 0 4 1 0 0 1 Specific Order made its debut in the September 19th, 2014 drawing. Will it be another two years and nine months before this Specific Order is seen again?

Now it’s time to discuss the biggest event of the evening: the ever-so rare repeating Four-Number Combination. The Combination of the evening was 18, 26, 30, and 44, and it made its debut in the March 15th, 2016 drawing.

Of course, there’s always more beneath the surface when it comes to these lottery things. Nestled inside a repeating Four-Number Combination are four repeating Three-Number Combinations. Here’s Part II of the big event:

Save for Combination 30, 44, and MB 9, all the Combinations in the list above made their debut in the March 15th, 2016 drawing.

Will there be more shock and awe in Tuesday’s Mega Millions drawing?

 

The Flag Day Smash

There is a US holiday in June, a little holiday called Flag Day. See, it falls on June 14th every year, and it commemorates the adoption of the US flag on June 14th, 1777. It wasn’t until the mid-twentieth century that Flag Day became a holiday. As much as USians love (US) football field-sized flags, explosions, chanting “USA! USA! USA!”, and explosions, Flag Day is a low-key affair there. Keeping with the Flag Day tradition, the Lotto Texas and Powerball drawings were low-key affairs the night of June 14th. The {3-2-1} Pattern four-peat in Lotto Texas was smashed, not to mention that there were no repeating Four-Number Combinations. Powerball’s {2-2-1-1} Pattern didn’t get a chance to go for an encore, and there were no repeating Three-Number Combinations there, either. Yet, as low-key as the night was, there was an interesting development in Lotto Texas.

Wednesday night’s winning numbers were 11, 20, 37, 39, 44, and 49, bringing the number of appearances of the {4-1-1} Pattern to 159.

This Specific Order has also played in 3.71% of all 1455 drawings. In an interesting turn of events, the 1 1 4 Specific Order was also last seen in the May 6th drawing.

This Pattern has now appeared 64 times, and has played in 36.2% of the 177 Powerball drawings. The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern previously played in the June 3rd, 2017 drawing.

Making its 20th appearance, the [1-1-1-2-1] General Order has played in 31.25% of the 64 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 11.3% of all 177 drawings. Prior to Wednesday night, this General Order was last seen in the March 1st, 2017 drawing.

Now with four appearances, the 1 1 0 1 2 1 Specific Order has played in 20% of the 20 drawings where the [1-1-1-2-1] General Order has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 6.25% of the 64 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 2.26% of all 177 drawings. The 1 1 0 1 2 1 Specific Order was last seen in the May 14th, 2016 drawing.

The summer solstice is nearly here. Will Lotto Texas and Powerball turn up the heat Saturday night, or will a new, low-key “streak” be established?
