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.

Of the 312 Powerball drawings, this Pattern has played 35.3% of the time and was last seen September 12th, 2018.

The [1-1-1-2-1] General Order made its 35th appearance and has now played in 31.8% of the 110 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern.

Prior to Saturday night, the [1-1-1-2-1] General Order accompanied the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern in the earlier-mentioned September 12th drawing.

Now with ten appearances, the 1 1 1 0 2 1 Specific Order has played in 28.6% of the 35 drawings where the General Order was [1-1-1-2-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 9.09% of the 110 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. When taking all 312 drawings into consideration, this Specific Order has played 3.21% of the time. The 1 1 1 0 2 1 Specific Order previously played on June 27th, 2018.

Three-Number Combination(s)

This Combination debuted on February 11th, 2017.

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?

 

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.

Surprise appearance by the {2-2-2} Pattern. Source: lotterytrend.com.

As mentioned earlier, Lotto Texas experienced an Australian play when the {2-2-2} Pattern and 2 2 2 Specific Order both made their 221st appearance and appeared in approximately 13.92% of all 1588 drawings. They last played on August 8, 2018.

And, there were also a repeat appearance of two Four-Number Combinations:

  • 27, 35, 50, and 53, which debuted May 1, 2010 and
  • 4, 27, 35, and 53, which debuted November 29, 2008.

Like I said before, it’s not often that we see a Four-Number Combination repeat a short while after its debut.

 

Powerball

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

The rarely played {4-1-1} Pattern made its 6th appearance and has played in approximately 1.94% of all 310 drawings. It last played on May 16, 2018.

The [1-4-1] General Order made its 3rd appearance and has played in 50% of all 6 drawings associated with the {4-1-1} Pattern and approximately 0.97% of all 310 drawings. It last played on St. Patrick’s Day of 2017.

The 0 1 0 0 4 1 Specific Order made its 2nd appearance and has played in approximately 33.33% of all 6 drawings associated with the {4-1-1} Pattern, approximately 66.67 percent of all 3 drawings associated with the [1-4-1] General Order, and approximately 0.65% of all 310 drawings. Like the  [1-4-1] General Order, it last played on St. Patrick’s Day of 2017.

 

Powerball also experienced a repeat appearance of two Three-Number Combinations:

Well, seems Autumn is bringing us a lot of surprises in the lottery world. How long will it last? Until next time, this is guest blogger, Romulun Harris, signing off.

 

Everybody Loves Australia (Plays)

Who doesn’t love Australia, right? What with the surfing, the wildlife, the weather…

But seriously. August 8th was a night like no other. In fact, something so wild, so crazy happened that we can’t talk about it in this paragraph. All we can tell you right now is that the jackpots for Lotto Texas and Powerball rose to a respective $16 million and $245 million.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

With winning numbers 12, 16, 28, 29, 46, and 54, both the {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order made their 220th appearance.

Of the 1575 Lotto Texas drawings to date, the Australia Play has happened in roughly 14% of them.

Four-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Four-Number Combinations in Wednesday’s drawing.

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

Powerball also got struck with Australia Play fever! The winning numbers were 10, 21, 30, 43, 63, and PB 17.

Australia Plays are infectious. Source: lotterytrend-powerball.com.

With those six numbers, 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 played 22 times. Given the 297 Powerball drawings, the Australia Play has played 7.41% of the time.

Here’s the kicker. Both Australia Plays were previously seen on July 25th, 2018!

Three-Number Combination(s)

The lone repeating Three-Number Combination, 10, 43, and 63, made its debut in the October 19th, 2016 drawing.

Could another first take place Saturday night with both Australia Plays making an encore?

 

The Australia Play Double Feature

Someone became at least $522 million richer after the July 24th, 2018 Mega Millions drawing. Any lottery that had a drawing the next night would have its work cut out for it. Both Lotto Texas and Powerball rose to the occasion July 25th. Not only did their jackpots rise to $13 million and $168 million, respectively, they both saw an Australia Play! To learn more about what an Australia Play is, click here. Although the post covered Lotto Texas, the same principle applies to Powerball and Mega Millions.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

With winning numbers 5, 10, 30, 34, 49, and 51, both the {2-2-2} Pattern and 2 2 2 Specific Order made their 219th appearance.

Of the 1571 Lotto Texas drawings, an Australia Play has happened 13.9% of the time. The last time this phenomenon took place was in the June 30th, 2018 drawing.

Four-Number Combination(s)

The lone repeating Four-Number Combination of the evening was 5, 30, 34, and 49.

It made its debut in the June 13th, 2009 drawing. Hard to believe that it was a little over nine years ago!

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

Powerball followed suit with its own Australia Play! The {1-1-1-1-1-1} Pattern, [1-1-1-1-1-1] General Order, and 1 1 1 1 1 1 General Order played together for the 21st time with winning numbers 2, 18, 41, 44, 64, and PB 26.

Australia Play #2. Source: lotterytrend-powerball.com.

Three-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations Wednesday night.

Will either Australia Play do the “unthinkable” and go for an encore Saturday night? Will other Patterns be the ones to end July?

Sucker Punch Combinations & A Pattern Encore

June ended with a bang. With no grand prize winners in either Lotto Texas or Powerball, the jackpots are now $8.25 million and $70 million, respectively. Other noteworthy events were the end of the (brief) {3-2-1} Pattern streak in Lotto Texas and possibly the start of one in Powerball.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

Although the {3-2-1} Pattern didn’t see a “four-peat”, there was something else that might have rivaled it: an Australia Play! That is, the Pattern and the Specific Order were the same. Furthermore, the Specific Order is unique to said Pattern.

With winning numbers 5, 8, 29, 32, 40, and 48, both the {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order made their 218th appearance.

Given that there have been 1564 Lotto Texas drawings, the Australia Play has happened in 13.9% of them. An Australia Play last appeared on May 19th, 2018.

Four-Number Combination(s)

Along for the ride were two repeating Four-Number Combinations, one of which had played twice before!

  • 8, 32, 40, 48 (Debuted September 6th, 2017)
  • 5, 8, 32, 40 (Debuted April 7th, 2010, and previously played on July 11th, 2012)

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

Lotto Texas may have had the lion’s share of the action, but Powerball had its own plans. The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern made an encore appearance with winning numbers 3, 9, 20, 42, 61, and PB 24.

100 appearances later, it reigns among Powerball Patterns. Source: lotterytrend-powerball.com.

Not only was this an encore, this marked the 100th appearance of the Pattern. With that said, there have been 286 Powerball drawings to date, and this Pattern has played in roughly 35% of them. Recall that the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern previously played this past Wednesday.

The [2-1-1-1-1] General Order, with 27 appearances, has now played in 27% of the 100 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. This General Order has also played in 9.44% of all 286 drawings. We last saw the [2-1-1-1-1] General Order on June 2nd, 2018.

Now with eight appearances, the 2 1 1 0 1 1 Specific Order has played in 29.6% of the 27 drawings where the General Order was [2-1-1-1-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 8% of the 100 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern, and in roughly 2.86% of all 286 drawings. Prior to Saturday night, the 2 1 1 0 1 1 Specific Order played on March 21st, 2018.

Three-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations this time.

For those of you reading from the U.S., Wednesday is the Fourth of July. Will Lotto Texas and Powerball go all-out with encores and crazy (repeating) Combination action or will another surprise be in store?

The Biggest Draw of the Night

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.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

With winning numbers 1, 12, 22, 31, 39, and 46, the {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order made their 217th appearance.

Same Pattern, last week. Source: lotterytrend.com.

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.

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

And now for the show-stopper.

The numbers that gave five people the option to quit their day jobs were 3, 6, 9, 17, 56, and PB 25.

These six numbers made up the 56th appearance of the {3-1-1-1} Pattern, which was also last seen on May 12th, 2018. This Pattern has played in 20.4% of the 274 Powerball drawings.

With fifteen appearances, the [3-1-1-1] General Order has played in 26.8% of the 56 drawings where the winning Pattern was {3-1-1-1}. This General Order has also played in 5.47% of all 274 drawings. Prior to Saturday night, we saw the [3-1-1-1] General Order on April 11th, 2018.

Now with three appearances, the 3 1 0 1 0 1 Specific Order has played in 20% of the fifteen drawings where [3-1-1-1] was the General Order. This Specific Order has also played in 5.36% of 56 drawings where {3-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Finally, when looking at all 274 drawings, this Specific Order has played 1.09% of the time. The 3 1 0 1 0 1 Specific Order was last seen on December 23rd, 2017.

Three-Number Combination(s)

There were also four repeating Three-Number Combinations thrown into the mix!

“Going big” was the way to go.

Summer is almost upon us. Will we continue to see these wild and crazy plays in the week ahead?

Pre-Mother’s Day Saturday Encore

Today’s post is going to start with a tribute.

Be they called “mothers”, “las madres”, or just plain “Moms”, without them we wouldn’t be. They nurtured us, comforted us, fussed at us (when we needed it!), and made sure we became functioning members of society. Mothers aren’t perfect, but dang if they don’t try. Even when the kids have grown up and have lives of their own, mothers are like artists: they feel their work is never done! As annoying as it may seem, we’ll end up missing that fussing and “worrisomeness” when their time comes.

And, in the spirit of Mother’s Day, May 12th was a quiet night for Lotto Texas and Powerball. The only rowdiness was a Pattern encore and a repeating Three-Number Combination.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

The {2-2-2} Pattern made an encore appearance with winning numbers 4, 11, 19, 28, 51, and 54.

This Pattern has played in 216 drawings. Of course, when the {2-2-2} Pattern played, that meant the 2 2 2 Specific Order was along for the ride. Given that there have been 216 Lotto Texas drawings, both the {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order have played in 13.9% of them.

Four-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Four-Number Combinations this time.

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

Powerball took another route. With winning numbers 22, 42, 45, 55, 56, and PB 14, the {3-1-1-1} Pattern made its 55th appearance.

This Pattern has now played in 20.2% of the 272 Powerball drawings, and was last seen on April 11th, 2018.

With 25 appearances, the [1-1-3-1] General Order has played in 45.5% of the 55 drawings where {3-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. This General Order has also played in 9.19% of all 272 drawings. Prior to Saturday night, the [1-1-3-1] General Order played on March 24th, 2018.

Now with three appearances, the 0 1 1 3 0 1 Specific Order has played in 12% of the 25 drawings where [1-1-3-1] was the General Order of the evening. This Specific Order has also played in 5.45% of the 55 drawings where {3-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Finally, when looking at all 272 drawings, this Specific Order has played in 1.10% of all 272 drawings. We last saw the 0 1 1 3 0 1 Specific Order in the November 15th, 2017 drawing.

Three-Number Combination(s)

The lone repeating Three-Number Combination of the evening was 45, 55, 56.

This Combination made its debut in the September 23rd, 2017 drawing.

Will either Powerball or Lotto Texas see Pattern encores on Wednesday, or will other Patterns take the reins?

 

Great Lotteries Think Alike

In the past, we’ve seen Lotto Texas and Powerball play the same Pattern, and even have a “joint” Pattern streak. Although neither of those things happened May 9th, that night was a treat for playback lovers everywhere. In fact, the night was bouncing with not just playbacks but repeating Four-Number and Three-Number Combinations.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

With winning numbers 9, 17, 30, 34, 39, and 51, both the {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order made their 215th appearance. These two combined make up that special playback we here like to call the Australia Play.

Given that there have been 1549 Lotto Texas drawings, the Australia Play has happened in 13.9% of them. An Australia Play was previously seen on April 18th, 2018.

Four-Number Combination(s)

There was also one repeating Four-Number Combination.

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 now played 20 times each. And, with 271 Powerball drawings, that means Powerball’s Australia Play has happened 7.38% of the time.  The last time this happened was in the April 4th, 2018 drawing.

Three-Number Combination(s)

The repeating Three-Number Combination was 50, 69, and PB 19.

Interestingly, this Combination made its debut in the April 21st drawing just a few weeks ago.

Another interesting (and totally out of character) thing is how short this post was for Lotto Texas and Powerball analysis. With Mother’s Day (for the US/Canada/Australia anyway) right around the corner, will these lotteries be sweet and chill, or go nuts with Australia Play encores?

The Midweek Playback

The lottery world is a lot like the “real” one these days. Just as it’s been snow one day and warmth the next, it’s chilly Mega Millions followed by a joint effort by Lotto Texas and Powerball to warm things up. April 18th brought us the ultimate playback and the debut of a Specific Order.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

Lotto Texas is hoppin’ mad for Australia Plays these days! It was just last week, April 11th to be precise, that we last saw one. With winning numbers 10, 14, 27, 32, 45, and 49, both the {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order have played 214 times.

Given that there have been 1543 Lotto Texas drawings, the Australia Play has occurred in 13.9% of them.

Four-Number Combination(s)

This Australia Play didn’t come with repeating Four-Number Combinations.

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

Right off the heels of this past Saturday’s drawing, the {3-2-1} Pattern came back again, with winning numbers 9, 10, 12, 17, 23, and PB 9.

Powerball got hit with Encore Fever. Source: lotterytrend-powerball.com.

There have been 265 Powerball drawings so far, and this Pattern has played 6.79% of the time.

The [3-2-1] General Order also boarded the encore train, making its eighth appearance. This General Order has now played in 44.4% of the 18 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern and in 3.02% of all 265 drawings.

The 3 2 0 0 0 1 Specific Order made its debut and has now played in 12.5% of the eight drawings where the [3-2-1] was the General Order. This Specific Order has also played in 5.56% of the 18 drawings where the winning Pattern was {3-2-1}. Finally, when looking at all 265 drawings, this Specific Order has played 0.38% of the time.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Even though Lotto Texas/Powerball nights have had more activity than Mega Millions these days, Powerball didn’t see any repeating Three-Number Combinations, either.

Will Lotto Texas and Powerball continue to warm things up Saturday night? Will it be a night of encores and repeating Three and Four-Number Combinations?

Hot Wednesday

Contrasts! That’s been the theme of the month so far. Mega Millions has been much calmer as of late, with Lotto Texas and Powerball tag-teaming as they spice things up. These lotteries joined forces once again on April 11th. They helped us escape the mid-week doldrums with an Australia Play and  repeating Three and Four-Number Combinations.

Will Lotto Texas and Powerball continue to keep things heated for Saturday night?
