A Sizzling Pattern Encore

Summer has been in gear for a few days, and already two noteworthy events took place in Lottery World June 23rd. One was that the jackpots for Lotto Texas and Powerball climbed to $7.75 million and $50 million, respectively. The other was a Pattern encore.

Lotto Texas

Right off the heels of the June 20th drawing, the {3-2-1} Pattern made an encore appearance! Its 815th appearance was thanks to winning numbers 3, 5, 8, 19, 24, and 54.

Of the 1562 Lotto Texas drawings, this Pattern has played 52.2% of the time.

Now with 147 appearances, the 3 2 1 Specific Order has played in 18.0% of the 815 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern. When looking at all 1562 drawings, this Specific Order has played in 9.41% of them. Prior to Saturday night, the 3 2 1 Specific Order played in the June 13th, 2018 drawing.

Four-Number Combination(s)

The {3-2-1} Pattern encore flew solo, so to speak. There were no repeating Four-Number Combinations this time.

Powerball

Out of the 284 Powerball drawings, this Pattern has played 20.8% of the time. This Pattern previously played on June 16th, 2018.

The [1-1-3-1] General Order made its 27th appearance. This General Order has played in 45.8% of the 59 drawings where {3-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern and played alongside it in the earlier-mentioned June 16th drawing. Finally, when looking at all 284 drawings, the [1-1-3-1] General Order has played 9.51% of the time.

Now with four appearances, the 0 1 1 3 0 1 Specific Order has played in 14.8% of the 27 drawings where ]1-1-3-1] was the General Order of the evening. This Specific Order has also played in 6.78% of the 59 drawings where {3-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 1.41% of all 284 drawings. The 0 1 1 3 0 1 Specific Order was last seen on May 12th, 2018.

Three-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations this time.

Could the {3-2-1} Pattern establish a streak in Wednesday’s drawing? Could {3-1-1-1} make an encore in Powerball?

Mid-Month Breather with a Side of Uncommon Patterns

Lotto Texas and Powerball followed Mega Millions’s lead on June 16th. They took a break. This break, along with rising jackpots ($7.25 million for Lotto Texas and $151 million in Powerball), is like watching an engaging drama. The real start of summer is June 20th (or 21st), and all the biggest plays don’t—can’t—happen just yet. Give too much away, and people will tune out. Suspense must also be built, and at the same time, there should be breather periods where the audience can catch their breath.

The very uncommon {5-1} Pattern made its 56th appearance, with winning numbers 17, 41, 42, 45, 49, and 50.

Given that there have been 1560 Lotto Texas drawings, this Pattern has played 3.59% of the time. We last saw this Pattern just before Christmas. More specifically, the December 23rd, 2017 drawing.

Now with eleven appearances, the 1 0 5 Specific Order has played in 19.6% of the 56 drawings where {5-1} was the winning Pattern. This Specific Order has also played in 0.71% of all 1570 drawings. Prior to Saturday night, the 1 0 5 Specific Order played on February 25th, 2017.

The 1 0 0 1 3 1 Specific Order was last seen on October 17th, 2017.

Three-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations this time.

Will either of these uncommon Patterns make an encore in Wednesday’s drawing?

Fanfare for the Common Pattern

After an encounter with an uncommon Pattern this past Saturday, June 13th saw Lotto Texas veer back onto a more “normal” path. Powerball, on the other hand, saw any hopes for a “three-peat” be dashed.

One thing that appeared “meant to be” after Wednesday night was the build-up for a potential blowout. With no grand prize winners for either lottery, the jackpots are now $7 million for Lotto Texas, and $137 million for Powerball. Another was the appearance of each lottery’s most commonly seen Pattern.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

With winning numbers 5, 6, 11, 26, 32, and 53, the {3-2-1} Pattern made its 813th appearance.

Given that there have been 1559 Lotto Texas drawings, this Pattern has played 52.1% of the time. This Pattern was last seen on June 6th, 2018. Interestingly, that appearance was part of a {3-2-1} Pattern streak that carried over from the end of May.

Like the {3-2-1} Pattern, the 3 2 1 Specific Order had also previously played in the earlier-mentioned June 6th drawing. Now with 146 appearances, this Specific Order has played in 18% of the 813 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern. This Specific Order has also played in 9.36% of all 1559 drawings.

Four-Number Combination(s)

Even with its most commonly seen Pattern, Lotto Texas went big with the {3-2-1} Pattern and the 3 2 1 Specific Order playing together again. It went even bigger with two repeating Four-Number Combinations!

  • 5, 6, 26, 53 (Debuted July 3rd, 2013)
  • 11, 26, 32, 53 (Debuted February 25th, 2009)

Out of the 281 Powerball drawings, this Pattern has played in 34.9% of them, and was last seen on June 2nd, 2018.

The [1-1-1-2-1] General Order made its 28th appearance Wednesday night. With that said, this General Order has played in 28.6% of the 98 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. This General Order has also played in 9.96% of all 281 drawings. We last saw the [1-1-1-2-1] General Order on May 26th, 2018.

Now with six appearances, the 1 1 1 2 0 1 Specific Order has played in 21.4% of the 28 drawings where the General Order was [1-1-1-2-1]. This Specific Order had played alongside the [1-1-1-2-1] General Order in the earlier-mentioned May 26th drawing. Continuing with the analysis, the 1 1 1 2 0 1 Specific Order has also now played in 6.12% of the 98 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 2.14% of all 281 drawings.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Playing an even more common Pattern than {2-2-1-1} was enough excitement for Powerball. There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations this time.

Will either the {3-2-1} Pattern or the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern see a repeat in Saturday’s drawing?

Underneath the Uncommon Pattern and Encore

With no one getting all six numbers correct in either Lotto Texas or Powerball, the jackpots have now gone up to $6.75 million and $121 million, respectively. What with a Pattern streak in Lotto Texas shattered, then that means the night was uneventful, right? Not at all! In contrast to the more obvious shows of grandiosity as of late, the excitement was subtler June 9th.

The not-so-common {4-2} Pattern made its 170th appearance with winning numbers 10, 14, 17, 18, 21, and 24.

Of the 1558 Lotto Texas drawings, this Pattern has played 10.9% of the time. We last saw this Pattern on January 27th, 2018.

Now with 35 appearances, the 4 2 0 Specific Order has played in 20.6% of the 170 drawings where {4-2} was the winning Pattern and in 2.25% of all 1558 drawings. Amazingly, this Specific Order played alongside the {4-2} Pattern in the earlier-mentioned January 27th drawing!

Four-Number Combination(s)

Just as it was when the {4-2} Pattern last appeared, there were no repeating Four-Number Combinations.

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

Fresh from its appearance this past Wednesday, the {2-2-1-1} Pattern went on to make an encore. Its 82nd appearance was thanks to winning numbers were 6, 10, 15, 25, 36, and PB 14.

The [2-2-1-1] General Order made its 31st appearance and has now played in 37.8% of the 82 drawings where {2-2-1-1} was the winning Pattern. This General Order has also played in 11.1% of all 280 drawings. Prior to Saturday night, this General Order played on May 2nd, 2018.

Now with five appearances, the 2 2 1 0 0 1 Specific Order has played in 16.1% of the 31 drawings where [2-2-1-1] was the General Order. This Specific Order has also played in 6.10% of the 82 drawings where {2-2-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 1.79% of all 280 drawings. This Specific Order was last seen on November 18th, 2017.

Three-Number Combination(s)

There may have been a {2-2-1-1} Pattern encore, but that didn’t lead to another night of repeating Three-Number Combinations.

Will other not-so-common Patterns make an appearance this week? Will the {2-2-1-1} Pattern go on to make a “three-peat”?

A Pattern Streak and a World Debut

One word sums up the night of June 6th: “Momentum”. One way to build momentum in the Lottery World is to have jackpots climb up. The respective prizes are now $6.5 million and $105 million. Another way is to stick with a Pattern Streak and throw in a brand new Specific Order.

Lotto Texas

Right off the heels of this past Saturday’s drawing, the {3-2-1} Pattern made its fourth consecutive appearance. This time, the winning numbers were 4, 5, 13, 23, 36, and 52.

And now the moment you’ve all been waiting for. The 0 2 1 2 0 1 Specific Order made its world debut! With that said, this Specific Order has played in 3.85% of the 26 drawings where the General Order was [2-1-2-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 1.23% of the 81 drawings where {2-2-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 0.36% of all 279 drawings.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Powerball got an extra boost of momentum with two repeating Three-Number Combinations:

Will things heat up on Saturday night with a “five-peat” for the {3-2-1} Pattern or will we see something truly unexpected?

The {3-2-1} Pattern Saga Continues

One sequel isn’t enough these days! It’s common for there to be one movie after the original story, but nowadays, Part III or higher shows up. There have even been instances where the final part of a series is split into two movies. None of that “part splitting” is present in lotteries or lottery analysis, that’s for sure, but Pattern streaks are a popular go-to.

The days are getting hotter in Houston, and Lotto Texas and Powerball followed suit on June 2nd.  Both lotteries saw their most commonly seen Patterns and with no grand prize winners, their respective jackpots now stand at $6.25 million and $87 million.

Lotto Texas

The {3-2-1} Pattern three-peat was thanks to winning numbers 6, 26, 34, 40, 43, and 54. This Pattern has now played 811 times.

  • 6, 26, 34, 40 (Debuted August 12th, 2015)

Unlike the last time the {3-2-1} Pattern appeared, this instance was not a playback, and there was one more repeating Four-Number Combination. You could say that this {3-2-1} Pattern sequel was different enough to prevent a rehash.

Will either the {3-2-1} Pattern or {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern show up again in Wednesday’s drawing? Will there be more repeating Three and Four-Number Combinations?

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

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.

The Big Combination Spectacle

It’s that time of year again! Summer isn’t just a time of hot weather and long vacations. It’s full of spectacle, too. Big budget movies and televised talent shows (live, even!) beat reruns for sure. With no winners for either Lotto Texas or Powerball May 23rd, and with smaller jackpots to boot, a quiet night would’ve been expected. Of course, these lotteries had other plans. The biggest spectacle of the evening was with the repeating Combinations, especially those of the Three-Number persuasion.

Lotto Texas and Powerball are worlds apart, and May 19th proved the point. The Texas lottery had a quiet night, what with there being no jackpot winner. But, the Pattern there was like a boomerang. You’ve tossed it, and you think it’s gone, but it comes right back.

As for Powerball, Saturday night was truly that lottery’s time to shine. A player in New Jersey is now $315 million richer, and five players in Florida, Texas, Minnesota, and New York will have $1 million more. Of course, that wasn’t all Powerball had to offer. We’ll get to that momentarily.

Given that there have been 1552 Lotto Texas drawings, this special play has occurred 14% of the time. For our long-time readers, the last time we saw an Australia Play was on May 12th, 2018.  This lottery has certainly become fond of Australia lately! With the notoriously hot and brutal Texas summer rearing its head soon, a trip Down Under may not be such a bad idea. Winter’s a comin’ down there.

Four-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Four-Number Combinations bounding across the numbers plain.
