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!

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

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.

Of the 1595 Lotto Texas drawings thus far, this Pattern has played 52.4% of the time.

Now with 127 appearances, the 1 3 2 Specific Order has played in 15.2% of the 836 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern. When taking all 1595 drawings into consideration, this Specific Order has played 7.96% of the time. Prior to Wednesday night, the 1 3 2 Specific Order played on October 10th, 2018.

Four-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Four-Number Combinations this time.

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

There was no way Powerball’s jackpot was going to climb without some sort of wild and crazy event! The rarely-seen {4-1-1} Pattern made its seventh appearance with winning numbers 3, 57, 64, 68, 69, and PB 15.

Of the 317 Powerball drawings, this Pattern has played 2.21% of the time and was last seen September 22nd, 2018.

The [1-4-1] General Order made its fourth appearance and has now played in 57.1% of the seven drawings where {4-1-1} was the winning Pattern. This General Order has also played in 1.26% of all 317 Powerball drawings. Fun fact: the [1-4-1] General Order played alongside the {4-1-1} Pattern in the earlier-mentioned September 22nd drawing.

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. When taking all 317 drawings into consideration, this Specific Order has played in 0.32% of them.

Three-Number Combination(s)

The lone repeating Three-Number Combination of the evening was 3, 64, and 68.

Will someone break the spell Saturday night, or will at least one jackpot rise again?

 

Going Big(ger) (or Lotto Texas & Powerball in “Jackpot Happy”)

October is an active month, indeed. Football season is in full swing, post-season baseball games are taking place (Will the ‘stros make it to the World Series again?), not to mention Halloween being right around the corner. If you also read the Mega Millions blog posts, then you know about the monster lurking about there. Now, I don’t mean to alarm you, but another monster was spotted October 13th. The grand prize for Powerball shot up to $345 million! Lotto Texas may be the “runt” with its $11.75 million jackpot, but it had the most impactful attacks of the evening.

The {3-2-1} Pattern was loved so much after showing up October 10th that it was invited back. This encore, and the 835th appearance of the Pattern, was thanks to winning numbers 14, 19, 30, 42, 47, and 51.

Of the 1594 Lotto Texas drawings, this Pattern has played 52.4% of the time.

Now with 149 appearances, the 1 2 3 Specific Order has played in 17.8% of the 835 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern and in 9.35% of all 1594 drawings. Prior to Saturday night, this Specific Order played on September 15th, 2018.

Similar Spread

Lotto Texas went straight for the jugular with a similar spread. The spread for Saturday night was 05:11:12:05:04, which was similar to what was seen on October 4th, 2006. That night, the winning numbers were 1, 13, 18, 22, 27, and 38, with a spread of 12:05:04:05:11. Notice that although the differences between numbers were the same, the orders were different.

Four-Number Combination(s)

Of course, what accents the impact of a Pattern encore more than a repeating Four-Number Combination? The Combination of the evening was 14, 30, 47, and 51, which made its debut in the February 20th, 2013 drawing.

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

Powerball took a note from the Lotto Texas playbook and played its most commonly seen Pattern again. Except here, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern made a three-peat. With winning numbers 11, 14, 32, 43, 65, and PB 15, this Pattern made its 113th appearance.

Of the 316 Powerball drawings, this Pattern has played in 35.8% of them.

The [2-1-1-1-1] General Order made its 30th appearance and has now played in 26.5% of the 113 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. This General Order has also played in 9.49% of all 316 drawings and was last seen on August 4th, 2018.

Now with five appearances, the 2 0 1 1 1 1 Specific Order has played in 16.667% of the 30 drawings where the General Order was [2-1-1-1-1]. This Specific Order has also appeared in 4.42% of the 113 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. When taking all 316 drawings into consideration, the 2 0 1 1 1 1 Specific Order has played 1.58% of the time. This Specific Order was last seen in the earlier-mentioned August 4th, 2018 drawing alongside the [2-1-1-1-1] General Order.

Three-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations. Powerball felt that the Pattern encore, and the crazy-large jackpot, were enough damage.

As the daytime hours wane, and the days (hopefully) continue to get cooler, the grand prizes continue to reach monumental heights. Will either the {2-1-1-1-1} or {3-2-1} Patterns make another repeat appearance Wednesday night and could one of those repeats allow at least one person to obtain a monstrous jackpot?

Lottery Wednesday Warmup

As things (finally) cooled down for us in Houston, things started heating up in the lottery world October 10th. Once again, the grand prizes for Lotto Texas and Powerball had yet to be won. Wednesday night, they rose to $11.25 million and $314 million, respectively. In a complete 180 of what we saw last time, rising jackpots were not the highlight of the evening.

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

Powerball was where most of the action was. In addition to a crazy-high grand prize, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern made an encore! The 112th appearance of the Pattern was marked by winning numbers 8, 23, 27, 42, 60, and PB 7.

Along for the encore ride was the [1-2-1-1-1] General Order, which made its 29th appearance. This General Order has now played in 25.9% of the 112 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 9.21% of all 315 drawings. Could it be that a playback was on the horizon?

Now with five appearances, the 1 2 1 0 1 1 Specific Order has played in 17.2% of the 29 drawings where the General Order was [1-2-1-1-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 4.46% of the 112 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 1.59% of all 315 drawings. A playback wasn’t meant to be. The 1 2 1 0 1 1 Specific Order previously played on July 26th, 2017.

Three-Number Combination(s)

This Combination made its debut on October 5th, 2016. Now, this isn’t an ordinary repeat. One, this Combination debuted two years ago (give or take a few days), and, the 1 2 1 0 1 1 Specific Order played that night too! That night, the winning numbers were 8, 18, 27, 29, 60, and PB 15.

Are more Pattern encores on the horizon? Will the grand prizes rise once more after Saturday’s drawing?

Lottery Plot Twist

Lotteries are like stories. They’re told with numbers rather than words, and they have their own twists. After a wild and crazy September, the results of October 6th showed a much quieter night. The only “event” was yet another rise in the jackpots for both Lotto Texas and Powerball. Their respective grand prizes rose to $10.5 million and $282 million.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Three-Number Combinations were absent this time around.

Things may be cooling down, but the grand prizes continue to go up. Will Wednesday see Pattern encores or possibly a grand prize winner?

The Date That Binds

October is strange. The early part of the month is about autumn finding its legs in the Northern Hemisphere. So far, it has either been a continuation of summer or, if we ask our friends up in western Canada, a complete jump-over into winter. October 3rd was a sticky night not only in Houston, but in Lotto Texas and Powerball, too. Another lottery night meant another night where the grand prizes rose. Right now, they stand at $9.75 million and $253 million, respectively. The Patterns, although wildly different on the surface, had something in common, and not just raising the jackpot.

Amidst the madness was a single repeating Three-Number Combination:

The daytime hours are shrinking, and at least one jackpot is heading for the stratosphere. Will it be a Pattern encore that helps someone become rich beyond his or her wildest dreams Saturday night, or will the jackpots grow once more?

The End-of-Month Hop-Along

September is over. The beach towels have been replaced with textbooks, the flip flops for shoes, and the holiday decorations are starting to come out in full force. In the lottery world, Lotto Texas and Powerball had their last drawings for the month September 29th. Their grand prizes rose once again, and now stand at $9 million and $229 million, respectively. Saturday night was also a good one for lovers of Australia Plays and (repeating) Combinations.

October is right around the corner and there has yet to be a grand prize winner for either Lotto Texas or Powerball. Likewise, neither lottery is starting the month with a Pattern streak. Will either lottery see an encore, or even see a grand prize winner, in Wednesday’s drawing?

 

Never Gone for Long: Lotto Edition

Before we get to today’s lottery analysis, I want to thank guest blogger Romulun Harris for filling in while I was away.

September is almost over, and what a month it has been! Lotto Texas garnered the most attention with a monstrous {3-2-1} Pattern streak. After an astounding eight consecutive appearances, the Pattern was knocked off its pedestal with an Australia Play.

As we look at what happened on September 26th, there were at least a couple of things Lotto Texas and Powerball had in common:

  1. Neither saw a Pattern encore
  2. Both saw their grand prizes grow to $8.25 million and $213 million, respectively

The third “common” thing is a bit subtler and requires further reading.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

The {3-2-1} Pattern didn’t stay off its pedestal for long, coming back strong with winning numbers 6, 13, 18, 30, 48, and 49. This Pattern has now played 832 times.

In addition to the return of the {3-2-1} Pattern, there were two repeating Four-Number Combinations, both of which appeared ten years ago!

  • 6, 13, 18, 49 (Debuted December 6th, 2008)

This Specific Order has also played in 1.61% of the 62 drawings where the winning Pattern was {3-1-1-1} and in 0.32% of all 311 drawings.

September 29th will be the last drawing of the month for Lotto Texas and Powerball. Will the grand prizes continue to increase, or will they be won?

Autumn Brings More Surprises!

Hello again, Lottery Trend Fans! This is guest blogger, Romulun Harris, giving you the latest lottery updates. As we witness the second day of Autumn, two combinations make their first appearance in almost ten years and Lotto Texas experiences an Australian play and more! And now the details.

 

Lotto Texas

Last night on September 22, 2018, the winning numbers for Lotto Texas were 4, 7, 27, 35, 50, and 53.

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

Powerball

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

The Pattern Encores Cometh

There’s no denying that September is an exciting month. Regardless of how you (or your kids) feel about going back to class, or the start of football season, you can’t deny there’s a buzz in the air.

September 19th was an intense night for Lotto Texas and Powerball. Not only did their respective grand prizes increase to $7.75 million and $178 million, they both saw Pattern encores!

Although, “Pattern encore” is an understatement for Lotto Texas.

Summer is almost over, and it looks like Lotto Texas and Powerball have a big send-off in the works. Will the {3-2-1} Pattern streak continue, and can Powerball get a Pattern streak established Saturday night?

Speaking of transitions, Romulun Harris, our Mega Millions analyst, will be your guide for Saturday night’s drawing. I’ll be away on business.

 

The Great and Powerful Pattern

What can be said about September 15th? Other than it being the halfway mark in September, it’s not that big of a deal, is it? After all, there’s nothing that great about the grand prizes for Lotto Texas and Powerball going up to $7.5 million and $163 million, is there? Nothing that great about the {3-2-1} Pattern playing seven times in a r–.

Who are we kidding!? Saturday night was a mighty big deal and not just because the jackpots rose! It was in Lotto Texas, the “small fry” of the Big Three lotteries, that a Pattern played seven times in a row. Not even the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern, King of Mega Millions, has ever performed such a feat!

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

The record-breaking “seven-peat” featured winning numbers 2, 21, 24, 41, 46, and 52. This brings the number of times the {3-2-1} Pattern has played up to 830.

Of the 1586 Lotto Texas drawings, this Pattern has played 52.3% of the time. Recall that we last saw this Pattern on September 12th, 2018.

Now with 148 appearances, the 1 2 3 Specific Order has played in 17.8% of the 830 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern. When taking all 1586 drawings into consideration, this Specific Order has played 9.33% of the time. Prior to Saturday night, the 1 2 3 Specific Order played on September 8th, 2018. How interesting it would’ve been if a playback occurred!

Similar Spread

Instead, another level of awesomeness was applied when a similar spread showed up. The spread for Saturday night’s numbers was 19:03:17:05:06. This is similar to the spread seen on September 25th, 2010. That night, the winning numbers were 1, 7, 26, 43, 46, and 51 and the spread was 06:19:17:03:05. Note how the numbers in the spreads are the same, but the orders are different.

Four-Number Combination(s)

Of course, Lotto Texas couldn’t have just a {3-2-1} Pattern “seven-peat” or a similar spread. There had to be a repeating Four-Number Combination thrown into the mix, too!

And what of Powerball? Was it struck with a touch of Pattern Streak Fever?

General Lottery Analysis

Powerball remained immune to streak fever, but it had a strong night. With winning numbers 2, 18, 19, 24, 34, and PB 3, the {3-1-1-1} Pattern made its 60th appearance.

Of the 308 Powerball drawings, this Pattern has played in 19.5% of them, and was last seen on June 23rd, 2018.

The [1-3-1-1] General Order made its 17th appearance and has now played in 28.3% of the 60 drawings where {3-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. When taking all 308 drawings into consideration, this General Order has played 5.52% of the time. Prior to Saturday night, the [1-3-1-1] General Order played on February 7th, 2018.

Now with three appearances, the 1 3 1 0 0 1 Specific Order has played in 17.6% of the 17 drawings where the General Order was [1-3-1-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 5% of the 60 drawings where {3-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 0.97% of all 308 drawings. The 1 3 1 0 0 1 Specific Order was last seen on July 30th, 2016.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Powerball’s contribution to the “awesome sauce” pot was the repeating Three-Number Combination 2, 18, and 19.

This Combination made its debut in the March 4th, 2017 drawing.

It can be said without a doubt that September 15th was one of, if not the biggest night Lottery Binge has covered. Lotto Texas has developed a love affair with the {3-2-1} Pattern and we’ll need to keep an eye on whether the record-breaking streak continues, or there’s a break-up. Powerball hasn’t seen an encore in a while. Could a {3-1-1-1} Pattern encore show up Wednesday night?
