Australia Play + (Repeating) Combinations = Summer

Memorial Day means many things to those of us residing in Lottery Trend Country. Fallen soldiers are honored, for one. The long weekend kicks off summer vacation for some kids, and a teaser for others. Regardless of what weekend it is, Lotto Texas and Powerball appear to reserve some of their biggest plays for Saturday nights. How did May 27th go? Lotto Texas saw a repeating Four-Number Combination and Powerball had a repeating Three-Number Combination, for one. There was also an Australia Play and a General Order and Specific Order that played together in a previous drawing. Which lottery had what play?

Lotto Texas

In just a week-and-a-half, Lotto Texas saw another Australia Play! The 196th appearance of the {2-2-2} Pattern was marked by winning numbers 1, 16, 25, 34, 50, and 53.

Of course, the 2 2 2 Specific Order also made its 196th appearance. The Australia Play has appeared in 13.5% of the 1450 Lotto Texas drawings, and was last seen May 17th.

It wasn’t enough to have just an Australia Play. Saturday night’s drawing also harbored the repeating Four-Number Combination 16, 34, 50, and 53.

This Combination debuted in the December 19th, 2007 drawing.

Powerball

Although Powerball didn’t see an Australia Play, it did see its most commonly played Pattern. Making its 61st appearance, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern was represented by winning numbers 5, 10, 28, 55, 67, and PB 9.

This Pattern has now played in 35.5% of the 172 Powerball drawings, and previously played May 6th.

With twelve appearances, the [2-1-1-1-1] General Order has played in 19.7% of the 61 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 6.98% of all Powerball drawings. Prior to Saturday, this General Order was last seen in the February 22nd drawing.

The 2 1 0 1 1 1 Specific Order made its third appearance, and has now played in 25% of the twelve drawings where the [2-1-1-1-1] General Order has appeared. When looking at the 61 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern appeared, the statistic becomes 4.92%, and shrinks to 1.74% when taking all 172 drawings into account. Like the [2-1-1-1-1] General Order, this Specific Order previously played in the February 22nd drawing.

The repeating Three-Number Combination of the evening was 28, 67, and PB 9, and it debuted in the New Year’s Eve 2016 drawing.

Lotto Texas and Powerball ended May with a fireworks show of their own, and it looks like a hot summer is on the way. Onward to June!

Numbers on Walkabout

It seems that Australia Plays, and psyching people out with plays that seem to be Australia Plays, is now a thing. Lotto Texas saw a true Australia Play in the May 17th drawing, as well as two repeating Four-Number Combinations. Powerball seemed to follow Mega Millions in the whole “Looking like an Australia Play, but not” bit. Well, almost. Out of the Pattern, General Order, and Specific Order, only two of these made an encore.

Lotto Texas

Wednesday’s winning numbers were 16, 17, 29, 31, 37, and 51, marking the 195th appearance of both the {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order.

The Australia Play has now played in 13.5% of the 1447 Lotto Texas drawings, and was last seen a few weeks ago in the April 29th drawing.

The repeating Four-Number Combinations were

  • 16, 17, 31, 37 (Debuted April 15th, 2009) and
  • 16, 29, 31, 51 (Debuted January 5th, 2008)

Powerball

Right off the heels of this past Saturday’s drawing, the {2-2-1-1} Pattern made an encore appearance! The winning numbers this time around were 4, 11, 39, 45, 48, and PB 09.

Winning Powerball numbers. From lotterytrend-powerball.com.

Now with 53 appearances, this Pattern has played in 31.4% of the 169 Powerball drawings.

The [2-1-2-1] General Order also made an encore appearance in Wednesday’s drawing. Statistics-wise, this General order has now played in 32.1% of the 53 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in approximately 10.1% of all drawings.

Earlier, I had said that Powerball almost followed Mega Millions in the “Looking like an Australia Play, but not” category. If you remember this past Saturday’s Lottery Binge, the May 12th Mega Millions showed the Pattern, General Order, and Specific Order had all appeared together before. Thing is, the Pattern, General Order, and Specific Order were not the same!

In Powerball’s situation, while the Pattern and General Order had made an encore appearance, the Specific Order did not. That’s because Wednesday’s drawing saw the debut of the 2 0 1 2 0 1 Specific Order. This has now played in 5.88% of the 17 drawings where the [2-1-2-1] General Order has appeared, 1.89% of the 53 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and 0.59% of all Powerball drawings.

Looking ahead to Saturday, will the {2-2-1-1} Pattern go for a three-peat? Will there be another Australia Play?

Number Storm

The steady rain from Wednesday night turned into a downpour Saturday. What sprouted after the rains of April 29th were big plays for both Lotto Texas and Powerball.

Lotto Texas

One of the big events in Lotto Texas was the return of the Australia Play! As is the nature of such a play, the {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order made their 194th appearance. The winning numbers were 2, 5, 25, 35, 41, and 53.

Prior to Saturday night, the last time an Australia Play came about was in the February 22nd, 2017 drawing. The Australia Play has now appeared in 13.5% of 1442 Lotto Texas drawings.

Saturday’s Australia Play also harbored two repeating Four-Number Combinations. These were

  • 2, 35, 41, 53 (Debuted August 6th, 2011) and
  • 2, 25, 35, 41 (Debuted July 5th, 2014)

The {3-1-1-1} Pattern made an encore appearance, with winning numbers 22, 23, 24, 45, 62, and PB 5.

Now with 31 appearances, this Pattern has played in 18.9% of the 164 Powerball drawings.

The [3-1-1-1] General Order made its eighth appearance, and has played in 25.8% of the 31 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared. This General Order has also played in 4.88% of all 164 drawings. The [3-1-1-1] had previously played in the January 11th, 2017 drawing.

Getting into specifics, the 0 3 0 1 1 1 Specific Order made its third appearance. This Specific Order has played in 37.5% of the 8 drawings where the [3-1-1-1] General Order appeared, 9.68% of the 31 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 1.83% of all Powerball drawings. Prior to Saturday, the 0 3 0 1 1 1 Specific Order previously played in the November 19th, 2016 drawing.

Last, but certainly not least, a Three-Number Combination made a repeat appearance! The Combination was 22, 45, and PB 5.

This Combination made its debut in the November 14th, 2015 drawing.

With April behind us and with May on the way, will a trend of big plays be established for Lotto Texas and Powerball?

Powerball Gets It Too!

Hello, Lottery fans! This is guest blogger, Romulun Harris reporting on your latest LotteryTrend events! As the holiday of green and gold gets nearer, the event that happened with Megamillions on March 7, 2017 happened with Powerball: an Australian play! Now for the report.

 

Lotto Texas

Last night on March 11, 2017, the winning numbers for Lotto Texas were 5, 6, 24, 28, 29, and 37.

The {3-2-1} Pattern made its 741st appearance and has played in 51.89% of all 1428 drawings. It last played on March 1, 2017.

The 2 3 1 Specific Order made its 123rd appearance and has played in approximately 16.6% of all 741 drawings associated with the {3-2-1} Pattern and in 8.61% of all drawings. The 2 3 1 Specific Order last played on December 21, 2016.

The Four-Number Combination that repeated comprised the numbers 5, 6, 28, and 37, which last played on July 15, 2015.

 

Powerball

And now, for the main event! Last night on March 11, 2017, the winning numbers for Powerball were 1, 26, 41, 50, 57, AND PB 11.

As mentioned earlier, Powerball experienced an Australian play.  The {1-1-1-1-1-1} Pattern, [1-1-1-1-1-1] General Order, and 1 1 1 1 1 1 Specific Order all made their 16th occurrence. Plus, the {1-1-1-1-1-1} Pattern, [1-1-1-1-1-1] General Order, and 1 1 1 1 1 1 Specific Order have appeared in approximately 10.67% of all 150 drawings. February 8th, 2017 was the last time they played.

There were no repeats in Three Number Combinations.

Well, looks like surprising things are happening with St. Patrick’s Day around the corner. What surprise awaits us next? Find out next week!

 

Aussie, Aussie, Aussie!

March is kicking it into high gear. The seasons are a-changing and St. Patrick’s Day is fast approaching. To commemorate the occasion, the March 7th, 2017 drawing gifted us with an Australia Play! There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations, so this post is going to be a short one.

Tuesday’s winning numbers were 3, 30, 45, 53, 68, and MB 11.

Winning Mega Millions numbers.

With this Australia Play, the {1-1-1-1-1-1} Pattern, and the [1-1-1-1-1-1] General Order, and the 1 1 1 1 1 1 Specific Order made their thirteenth appearance! Given that there have been 353 drawings, this Australia Play has played in 3.68% of all Mega Millions drawings. What makes this one a doozy is that it was last seen in last year’s April 19th drawing.

Things appear to have quieted down just a wee bit, but the month is still young. Is this a lull before the green tide? Will Friday’s drawing see not only another rare Pattern, but a volley of repeating Three-Number Combinations?

Combos with a Side of Australia Play

The lead-up to Mardi Gras showed no signs of slowing down Wednesday night. After seeing the same Pattern in both Lotto Texas and Powerball, the February 22nd drawing decided to take things up a notch. Both lotteries saw repeating Four-Number and Three-Number Combinations respectively, and there was an Australia Play.

Lotto Texas

The Australia Play was spotted in Lotto Texas. The {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order made their 193rd appearance, with winning numbers 4, 8, 21, 27, 52, and 53.

Winning Texas Lottery numbers.

These two have played in 13.6% of the 1423 drawings to date. Lotto Texas last saw an Australia Play in the January 25th drawing almost a month ago.

The Lotto Texas Mardi Gras momentum got an extra boost with the repeat appearance of two Four-Number Combinations:

  • 4, 8, 21, and 53 (Debuted February 10th, 2016)
  • 4, 8, 21, and 27 (Debuted February 19th, 2011)
The repeating Four-Number Combinations are highlighted in red boxes.

Powerball

The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern retained its position as the most commonly seen Pattern. Its 49th appearance was thanks to winning numbers 10, 13, 28, 52, 61, and PB 2.

Winning Powerball numbers.

As of Wednesday’s drawing, this Pattern has appeared in 33.8% of the 145 drawings, and had previously played in the recent February 11th drawing.

The General Order of the evening was [2-1-1-1-1], making its eleventh appearance. This General Order has now played in 22.4% of the 49 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared and in 7.59% of all drawings. Like the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern, the [2-1-1-1-1] General Order was also last seen on February 11th.

The 2 1 0 1 1 1 Specific Order made its second appearance and has now played in 18.2% of the 11 drawings where the [2-1-1-1-1] General Order has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 4.08% of the 49 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared and in 1.38% of all Powerball drawings. The 2 1 0 1 1 1 Specific Order made its debut in the August 31st, 2016 drawing.

Our Powerball coverage concludes with the repeating Three-Number Combination 10, 28, and 61, which made its debut in the July 9th, 2016 drawing.

Repeating Three-Number Combination can be seen in the red box.

Will the momentum for Lotto Texas and Powerballl continue as we look forward to Saturday?

Australia Play Fever

Looks like something is starting to go around in lottery world! In our Wednesday coverage, Lotto Texas saw an Australia Play. That is, the Pattern, General Order, and Specific Order matched. Although there wasn’t an encore in Lotto Texas (how awesome would that have been?), Powerball got the bug.

Lotto Texas

Our coverage of the January 28th Lotto Texas drawing begins with the 737th appearance of the {3-2-1} Pattern. The winning numbers this time were 5, 7, 30, 48, 51, and 52.

This Pattern has played in approximately 52% of the 1416 drawings thus far, and was last seen in the January 11th, 2017 drawing. Note that the {3-2-1} Pattern is far and away the most commonly seen Pattern in Lotto Texas.

The 2 1 3 Specific Order made its 110th appearance, its first since the January 4th, 2017 drawing. This Specific Order has played in 14.9% of the 737 drawings where the {3-2-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 7.77% of all drawings.

There were no repeating Four-Number Combinations in Lotto Texas this time around.

Powerball

Saturday night’s fireworks were primarily from the Powerball camp. The Australia Play made its 14th appearance, thanks to winning numbers 12, 20, 39, 49, 69, and PB 17.

These numbers follow the {1-1-1-1-1-1} Pattern, and has now played in 14 of the 138 Powerball drawings. Given said Pattern, it follows that the [1-1-1-1-1-1] General Order and the 1 1 1 1 1 1 Specific Order have also appeared 14 times. All of them have played in 10.1% of all the drawings. The last time we saw an Australia Play in Powerball was in the December 10th, 2016 drawing.

Not only did we see an Australia Play, we also saw a repeating Three-Number Combination in the form of 12, 20, and PB 17.

This Combination made its debut a little over a year ago, in the November 4th, 2015 drawing.

Will either Lotto Texas or Powerball see rarely-played Patterns in the week ahead? Will the Australia Play make an encore?

Wednesday Goes Boom

Talk about explosive! January 25th gifted us with not-commonly-seen Patterns in both Lotto Texas and Powerball. The lottery world was also graced with the debut of a new Specific Order.

Lotto Texas

The Pattern of the evening was {2-2-2}, gifted to us by winning numbers 1, 14, 19, 32, 37, and 46.

Not only did we see the 192nd appearance of the {2-2-2} Pattern, we saw the 192nd appearance of the [2-2-2] General Order and the 2 2 2 Specific Order. All three have now appeared in 13.6% of the 1415 drawings to date.  For any new readers out there, we here at Lottery Binge like to call this setup an Australia Play.

This Australia Play brought us not one, but two repeating Four-Number Combinations.

Powerball may not have had an Australia Play, but it did have something rarer. The rarely-seen {3-2-1} Pattern made its fifth appearance. Yes, fifth! The winning numbers were 18, 28, 62, 66, 68, and PB 22.

By process of elimination, Powerball is the one with a new Specific Order. The 0 2 0 0 3 1 Specific Order, to be precise. This Specific Order has now played in 25% of the four drawings where the [2-3-1] General Order has appeared, 20% of the five drawings where the {3-2-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 0.73% of all Powerball drawings.

As we march on to the last weekend before the Super Bowl, will Lotto Texas and Powerball continue to surprise us with rarely-seen Patterns?

Powerball last saw an Australia Play in the November 2nd, 2016 drawing.

As parents (and teachers) brace for the upcoming Christmas break, will we see an unprecedented Australia Play streak? Will either Lotto Texas or Powerball see a similar spread?

Mid-Week Fireballs

We’re only a week into December and so far, it’s shaping up to be quite a month! December 7th gave us a Pattern in Lotto Texas that we haven’t seen in a while, and Powerball had an interesting play as well.

Looking ahead to Saturday’s drawing, will Patterns not commonly seen in either Lotto Texas or Powerball continue to have their play? Will we see another Australia Play?
