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.

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?

A Copycat and a Roaring Sheep

Lotto Texas and Powerball had the honor of closing out March, and what it a month it was! The biggest event was of course the six consecutive appearances of the {3-2-1} Pattern in Lotto Texas. The streak came to an end March 31st. And although one streak ended, another may be in the works.

Although the Pattern streak in Lotto Texas came to an end, Powerball appeared interested in picking up the baton and running with it. The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern made an encore appearance with winning numbers 8, 24, 52, 55, 61, and PB 21.

Meat pie!? What does that have to do with lottery analysis? It just so happened that March 7th saw another Australia Play. That, and there’s more to Australian cuisine than Vegemite. As one lottery saw the ultimate playback Wednesday night, another was this close to hopping on the Playback Express.

Will Saturday’s drawing have another Australia Play?

Bounded Together

Lotto Texas and Powerball are stuck together. That’s just the way it is. Every Wednesday and Saturday, they do their thing, and we do our thing by bringing you analysis. Last summer, we saw that these lotteries can be stuck together in other ways. March 3rd saw a shade of that.

Bouncing Through a Time Warp

Saturdays wield the power of nostalgia. Be it Saturday morning cartoons, hanging out at the mall, or just sleeping in, there’s something about that day that makes the urge to reminisce hard to suppress. As is the nature of Lottery Binge, we cover past lotteries—the past can be from just a few days ago to a time when Blockbuster Video was where you rented movies and video games. February 24th was a night when the past truly took over.

With winning numbers 5, 9, 32, 35, 51, and 54, the {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order made their 209th appearance.

Powerball’s journey didn’t go as far back, but it was a trip back in time nonetheless.

Three-Number Combination(s)

There weren’t any repeating Three-Number Combinations this time.

Lotto Texas and Powerball will have the honor of bidding February adieu. Will either the Australia Play or the {2-2-1-1} Pattern make an encore? Will there be another trip back to the “distant” past?

Pre-Super Bowl Playbacks

Ah, the Super Bowl. The teams, the commercials, the over-the-top halftime shows, truly (pigskin) football is the real American pastime. As Lottery Trend Country was getting ready for the Super Bowl, things were not quiet on the lottery front. The theme for February 3rd was “Playback”, and both Lotto Texas and Powerball delivered the goods.

The Australia Play is the ultimate playback. Both the {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order made their 208th appearances, with winning numbers 3, 12, 24, 29, 38, and 50.

Extremities

The weather has been extreme these past few days. On one end, sub-freezing temperatures drove most U.S. Southerners inside, to the point that the streets were abandoned. Siberians, on the other hand, took selfies of themselves with frozen eyelashes in sub-zero temperatures. At the other end, it was hot enough in Australia that the brains of bats were boiling.

So far, 2018 has been a year of extremes in the lottery world as well. The year started with an insanely huge jackpot in Powerball, and then things cooled down a bit. January 17th saw things heat up for both Lotto Texas and Powerball.

Will Saturday’s drawing give way to a fourth consecutive appearance for Powerball’s {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern? Will the Australia Play make an encore in Lotto Texas?

Big Things in Small Packages

The saying “Big things come in small packages” is one way to describe the night of January 6th. Lotto Texas may have repeating Four-Number Combinations from at least fifteen years ago, but Powerball has insanely high jackpots! Speaking of, Powerball stole the show, with a player in New Hampshire made $559 million richer. Lotto Texas, however, shall not be ignored. With Powerball getting all the media attention, one mustn’t forget that two lotteries play on Saturday nights.

This has now played in 6.67% of the fifteen drawings where the [1-3-1-1] General Order has appeared, and 2.13% of the 47 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared. Finally, when taking all 236 drawings into account, the 1 0 3 0 1 1 Specific Order has played 0.42% of the time.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Powerball thought an insanely high jackpot was enough. There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations.

Will either Pattern repeat in Wednesday’s drawing? Will there be more debuting Specific Orders?
