November Boom

November started with a big bang! The Houston Astros won their first-ever World Series and Lotto Texas made a stopover Down Under. Powerball got in on the action with a Pattern encore. So, put on your Astros gear and grab a St. Arnold beer. Here was the rundown for Wednesday, November 1st.

And yet, with all the excitement of Wednesday night, there were no repeating Four-Number Combinations.

Of the 217 Powerball drawings thus far, this Pattern has played in roughly 30% of them.

Making its 24th appearance was the [2-2-1-1] General Order. This General Order has played in 36.9% of the 65 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 11.1% of all 217 drawings. Prior to Wednesday, this General Order had played in the July 12th, 2017 drawing.

It has also played in 9.23% of the 65 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 2.76% of all 217 drawings. This Specific Order was last seen earlier this year. More specifically, in the February 4th, 2017 drawing.

Three-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations to speak of.

The ‘Stros winning the World Series more than made up for the lack of repeating Combinations in Lotto Texas and Powerball. What awaits Lotto Texas and Powerball Saturday night?

Oi! We’ve Got Ourselves a Couple of Encores

For our U.S. readers, nothing says, “I survived the week so far!” than a chocolate cupcake or two, right? October 18th was yet another food centered holiday: National Chocolate Cupcake Day. Lotto Texas and Powerball didn’t bring any cupcakes, but both of their Patterns made an encore appearance. Talk about a boomerang effect! What’s more, is that there was a repeating Three or Four-Number Combination here and there.

Making its 19th appearance was the [1-2-2-1] General Order, which has now played in 30.2% of the 63 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared. This General Order has also played in 8.92% of all 213 drawings. The [1-2-2-1] General Order was not seen alongside the {2-2-1-1} Pattern Wednesday night. Instead, this General Order was last seen in the September 20th, 2017 drawing.

Now with two appearances, the 0 0 1 2 2 1 Specific Order has played in 10.5% of the 19 drawings where the [1-2-2-1] General Order has appeared. Additionally, this Specific Order has played in 3.17% of the 63 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared. Of course, we can’t forget to mention that this has played in 0.94% of all 213 drawings. The 0 0 1 2 2 1 Specific Order accompanied the [1-2-2-1] General Order in the September 20th drawing. In fact, that was when the Specific Order made its debut.

Will these Patterns stay joined at the hip Saturday night, or will they part ways?

A Mob of Combinations

Did you know that when the 14th falls on a Saturday, the chances of wild and crazy things happening goes up?

Okay, not really. But, there was plenty of wild and crazy action in Lotto Texas and Powerball. Whether you’re hoppin’ mad for Australia Plays or Specific Order debuts, October 14th had them. If you don’t fancy those sorts of things, there was a repeating Five-Number Combination. There was also a repeating Three-Number Combination, or two.

Lotto Texas

With winning numbers 15, 17, 23, 24, 44, and 53, there have been 200 appearances of both the {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order.

Five-Number Combination(s)

For the first time since July 23rd, 2016, a repeating Five-Number Combination showed its face in Lotto Texas.

Good on ya, Australia Play!

The Five-Number Combination was 15, 23, 24, 44, and 53, and it made its debut in the May 21st, 2014 drawing.

When there’s a repeating Five-Number Combination, there’s going to be five repeating Four-Number Combinations bundled inside. The Combinations were

  • 15, 23, 44, 53

The bottom four made their debut alongside the Five-Number Combination in the May 21st drawing we mentioned earlier. The top Combination appeared in that same drawing, naturally, but it’s a special one. Four-Number Combination 23, 24, 44, 53 made its debut about a year-and-a-half prior to the other four Combinations. It debuted in the November 24th, 2012 drawing, just two days after (US)Thanksgiving.

 

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

Although there wasn’t an Australia Play here, Powerball saw a respectable amount of number action. The {2-2-1-1} Pattern made its 62nd appearance with winning numbers 32, 37, 56, 66, 69, and PB 11.

These numbers were a bit quieter. Source: lotterytrend-powerball.com.

This Pattern has now played in 29.2% of the 212 Powerball drawings, and was last seen in the September 20th, 2017 drawing.

Will Wednesday night be hopping with repeating Combinations, or will things mellow out?

Hopping Along with a Callback

Autumn, of course, is when temperatures start to cool down. The term “Cool down” didn’t apply to either Lotto Texas or Powerball. To commemorate the first full week of autumn, there was an Australia Play and a callback to a drawing from right before Harvey. Question is, which pattern saw what play the night of September 27th?

Lotto Texas

The {2-2-2} Pattern bounded its way to its 199th appearance. Wednesday’s winning numbers were 2, 6, 26, 32, 42, and 49.

Now, given that was an Australia Play, the 2 2 2 Specific Order also made its 199th appearance. Both have now played in 13.4% of the 1485 Lotto Texas drawing, and previously played on July 15th, 2017.

Powerball

Unlike the {3-2-1} Pattern in Lotto Texas, Powerball’s {3-2-1} Pattern is rare indeed. Out of 207 drawings, this Pattern made its 10th appearance Wednesday. The winning numbers for the big 1-0 were 8, 10, 21, 23, 25, and PB 22.

This Pattern has now played in 4.83% of the 207 drawings.

With eight appearances, the [2-3-1] General Order has played in 80% of the 10 drawings where the {3-2-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 3.86% of all 207 drawings.

Now with two appearances, the 2 3 0 0 0 1 Specific Order has played in 25% of the 8 drawings where the [2-3-1] General Order has appeared, and in 20% of the 10 drawings where the {3-2-1} Pattern has appeared. This Specific Order has now played in roughly one percent of all 207 drawings.

Powerball’s Pattern, General Order, and Specific Order were all seen together in the August 23rd, 2017 drawing!

Technically speaking, an Australia Play is a callback. On this blog, the term will be used to describe an occurrence of a Pattern, General Order (when applicable), and Specific Order that played together in a previous drawing, and are not part of an Australia Play.

Our Powerball coverage concludes with the lone Three-Number Combination of the evening: 8, 10, and PB 22.

Will Saturday’s drawing see more callbacks? Will both Lotto Texas and Powerball see the {3-2-1} Pattern?

Another Cool Saturday Night

Halfway through the month of July and we saw another cool down Saturday night. The biggest plays July 15th were an Australia Play in Lotto Texas and a new Specific Order in Powerball. There were no repeating Four-Number or Three-Number Combinations to speak of in Lotto Texas or Powerball, respectively.

Will next week see more Australia Plays? Will Pattern streaks be established?

Cooling Off with a Trip Down Under

There was a shift in gears July 5th. Lotto Texas decided to beat the heat, and the {3-2-1} Pattern streak, with an Australia Play. It wasn’t too chilly though, as Wednesday night also saw a repeating Four-Number Combination. Powerball saw its most commonly played Pattern, but there were no repeating Three-Number Combinations. That, and there were no new Specific Orders to speak of in either lottery.

Lotto Texas

The 197th iteration of the {2-2-2} Pattern was thanks to numbers 4, 8, 24, 32, 47, and 51.

Likewise, the 2 2 2 Specific Order made its 197th appearance. Both the Pattern and Specific Order have played in 13.5% of the 1461 Lotto Texas drawings. The last time an Australia Play appeared was on May 27th, 2017.

This Australia Play also produced the repeating Four-Number Combination 4, 8, 47, and 51, which made its debut in the May 12th, 2001 drawing.

Fun fact: The very first iPod made its debut five months later. It would be several years later before the iPhone made its mark on the world.

The winning numbers were 4, 9, 16, 54, 68, and PB 21, bringing the number of appearances of the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern to 67.

Will this cool down continue into Saturday night, or will things heat up again?

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.

Winning Powerball numbers. From lotterytrend-powerball.com.

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.

Winning Texas Lottery numbers. From lotterytrend.com.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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