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.

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.

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.

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.

“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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Funny how after the Australia Play in Mega Millions this past Friday, Lotto Texas decided to follow suit. With winning numbers 8, 16, 26, 27, 44, and 51, both the {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order have played 212 times.

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.

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.
