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 Pattern has now played in 52.1% of the 1482 Lotto Texas drawings, and was seen in the September 9th drawing exactly one week ago.

Making its 142nd appearance was the 3 1 2 Specific Order, which has now played in 18.4% of the 772 drawings where the {3-2-1} Pattern has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 9.58% of the 1482 drawings to date, and previously played on September 6th, 2017.

The repeating Four-Number Combination of the evening was 9, 18, 40, and 41.

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?

September Spice

September is nearly halfway over, and it’s almost time to say goodbye to summer. Although autumn doesn’t start until September 22nd (or 23rd), Lotto Texas and Powerball were getting ready for a big send off. That is, if the results from September 13th were anything to go by. Whether it was a Pattern that doesn’t show up often in Lotto Texas, or three repeating Three-Number Combinations in Powerball, Wednesday night was far from boring!

Of course, if you’re reading from the Southern Hemisphere, replace “winter” with “spring”.

Lotto Texas

With winning numbers 24, 35, 40, 42, 45, and 48, the {4-2} Pattern made its 167th appearance.

This Pattern has now played in 11.3% of the 1481 Lotto Texas drawings, and was last seen on August 16th, 2017.

Now with 29 appearances, the 0 2 4 Specific Order has played in 17.4% of the 167 drawings where the {4-2} Pattern has appeared, and in 1.96% of all 1481 drawings. Prior to Wednesday night, this Specific Order played in the December 14th, 2016 drawing.

Here’s a real treat: 35, 40, 42, and 48, the sole repeating Four-Number Combination, made its debut nearly nine-and-a-half years ago! To be more specific, this Combination made its debut in the March 19th, 2008 drawing.

The {2-2-1-1} Pattern made its 60th appearance, with winning numbers 17, 24, 35, 57, 63, and PB 19.

With only two more drawings for Lotto Texas and Powerball left this summer, was Wednesday night truly a sign of things to come?

 

Of Common Patterns

After a quiet night, the lotteries came swinging on September 9th. Both Lotto Texas and Powerball saw their most commonly played Patterns, and were accompanied by a repeating Four-Number and Three-Number Combination, respectively. Also, in what may have been the biggest play of the evening, a Specific Order played for the first time in over a year!

Lotto Texas

Right off the heels of this past Wednesday’s drawing, the {3-2-1} Pattern made its 771st appearance. The winning numbers were 9, 26, 32, 34, 42, and 51.

Will Wednesday night feature a repeat appearance for either the {3-2-1} or the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern?

More “Common” Things and a World Debut

In our last post covering Lotto Texas and Powerball, we talked about how September got off to a big start. The night of September 6th told a different story. There were no Pattern encores, and as for repeating Three and Four-Number Combinations? Nada. The biggest event of the evening was the debut of a new Specific Order.

Lotto Texas

Wednesday’s winning numbers were 8, 10, 16, 32, 40, and 48, bringing the number of appearances of the {3-2-1} Pattern to 770.

This Pattern has now played in 29.4% of the 201 Powerball drawings, and was last seen on August 30th, 2017.

Now with nineteen (19) appearances, the [2-1-2-1] General Order has played in 32.2% of the 59 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared. This General Order has also played in 9.45% of the 201 drawings, and was seen alongside the {2-2-1-1} Pattern in the August 30th drawing.

Making its world debut was the 2 0 1 0 2 1 Specific Order, now having played in 5.26% of the 19 drawings where the [2-1-2-1] General Order has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 1.69% of the 59 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in roughly 0.5% of all 201 drawings.

Will there be another world debut among Specific Orders? Will either the {2-2-1-1} or {3-2-1} Pattern make an encore?

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)

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?

Of Nature and Numbers

The storm once known as Harvey is dead and done, now nothing more than a rain system pushing up and out through the eastern United States. Although the Sun is out, and blue skies are a much welcome sight, the aftermath will be felt for some time. The waters will recede, the clean-up will take place, and everyone impacted by the storm will eventually return to their “normal” lives. Add in the videos and photos that have made their rounds on the Internet, not to mention the records that have been broken, Harvey will be one for the history books. Regardless of your beliefs, or lack thereof, Nature is truly awe-some.

Meanwhile, in Lottery World, neither Lotto Texas nor Powerball broke any records August 30th. However, there was nothing “ho-hum” about how each lottery ended the month.

Lotto Texas

With winning numbers 11, 16, 17, 44, 52, and 54, the not-so-common {3-3} Pattern made its 126th appearance.

This Pattern has now played in 8.53% of the 1477 Lotto Texas drawings, and was last seen May 24th, 2017.

Now with 47 appearances, the 3 0 3 Specific Order has played in 37.3% of the 126 drawings where the {3-3} Pattern has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 3.18% of all 1477 drawings. The 3 0 3 Specific Order played alongside the {3-3} Pattern in the May 24th drawing.

The repeating Four-Number Combination of the evening was 16, 17, 44, and 54.

Unlike most repeating Four-Number Combinations we’ve covered, this one has appeared twice before:

Powerball

Making its second appearance, the 0 2 0 1 2 1 Specific Order has played in 11.1% of the 18 drawings where the [2-1-2-1] General Order has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 3.45% of the 58 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in about 1% of all 199 drawings. The 0 2 0 1 2 1 Specific Order made its debut in the May 3rd, 2017 drawing.

The lone repeating Three-Number Combination of the evening was 28, 67, and 69.

This Combination made its debut in the September 21st, 2016 drawing.

Will either the {3-3} or {2-2-1-1} Pattern make an encore appearance? Will there be repeating Four-Number or Three-Number Combinations that have appeared multiple times before?

A Night of Whammies

 

We got lucky. Taken the Sunday after the storm.

The storms produced by Harvey on August 26th knocked out our electricity, and we got our power back just a few hours ago. Our street flooded, and we didn’t get any water in the house, thankfully. However, the same couldn’t be said for thousands of others, to whom we send our thoughts and prayers. With the forecast for even more rain as the storm trudges into the Gulf again, we truly are, pardon the expression, in uncharted waters.

On the lottery side of things, both Lotto Texas and Powerball saw their most commonly played Patterns that night.

Lotto Texas

The {3-2-1} Pattern went for the three-peat Saturday night. With winning numbers 7, 11, 33, 41, 43, and 49, this Pattern has played in 769 drawings.

Statistics-wise, this Pattern has now played in 52.1% of the 1476 Lotto Texas drawings.

A Storm of {3-2-1}

As we here at Lottery Binge headquarters brace for a deluge and high winds, Lotto Texas and Powerball were brewing up a storm of their own the night of August 23rd. For starters, both lotteries saw the {3-2-1} Pattern. This was an encore appearance in Lotto Texas, and for one Powerball player, a night to remember.

With 768 appearances, the {3-2-1} Pattern is king in Lotto Texas. Wednesday night’s winning numbers were 6, 9, 34, 38, 39, and 46.

Unlike the {3-2-1} Pattern in Lotto Texas, this {3-2-1} is one of the least commonly played Powerball Patterns. As of Wednesday night, this {3-2-1} Pattern has played nine times. Statistically speaking, this Pattern has played in 4.57% of the 197 Powerball drawings. We last saw the {3-2-1} Pattern in the July 19th, 2017 drawing.

Now with seven appearances, the [2-3-1] General Order has played in approximately 77.8% of the nine drawings where the {3-2-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 3.55% of all 197 drawings. This General Order was seen with the {3-2-1} Pattern in the July 19th drawing mentioned earlier.

In addition to a new Specific Order, Powerball saw a repeating Three-Number Combination! The Combination 16, 23, PB 4 made its debut in the December 28th, 2016 drawing.

Will either {3-2-1} Pattern make a repeat appearance Saturday night, or will they get swept away?

Numberclipse

Two fevers have struck Lottery Trend Country. From coast-to-coast, people are getting ready to view a solar eclipse, and the Powerball jackpot continues to soar to crazy heights. Of course, Powerball is no stranger to such. Amidst the last-minute shopping, be it for school supplies or eclipse glasses, both Lotto Texas and Powerball saw their most commonly seen Patterns the night of August 19th. As for repeating Four-Number Combinations, there was only one.

After the kids have gone back and the eclipse madness subsides, what will Wednesday night have in store? Will both the {3-2-1} and {2-1-1-1-1} Patterns make an encore?

Flipping the Script

There were no encores for either Lotto Texas or Powerball Wednesday night. For those of you who just love repeating Four-Number Combinations, August 16th was a special night indeed. Now, you’re probably wondering “What’s the big deal? You guys mention repeating Four-Number Combinations a lot!”
