A Little Bit Warmer Now

If this past Saturday was warm, then January 24th was hot! Wednesday night was a big night for those who love seeing repeating Four-Number and Three-Number Combinations. Powerball had the lion’s share of the action.

Will there be more repeating Four-Number and Three-Number Combinations Saturday night?

Adieu, 2017

First, a Happy New Year to all our readers! After another year of Pattern streaks, similar spreads, and Australia Plays, the year 2017 officially ended on December 30th. In Lottery World, anyway. Not content with taking it easy New Year’s weekend, Lotto Texas and Powerball wanted to give a more festive send-off Saturday night.

Will Lotto Texas and Powerball start the new year with Pattern encores, or something totally unexpected?

 

Pre-Christmas Thaw

It’s winter in Lottery Trend Country, although it doesn’t really feel like it in our neck of the woods. To think that it snowed two weeks ago! Thus the fickle nature of Houston weather. On the lottery side of things, December 20th saw a “thaw”. Lotto Texas had a Pattern encore, and then some. Powerball stayed mellow through-and-through.

The {3-2-1} Pattern couldn’t bear to be out of the spotlight for long. Right off the heels of Saturday night’s drawing, it made its 785th appearance. This time, the winning numbers were 6, 10, 11, 22, 30, and 45.

This Specific Order was seen alongside the {3-2-1} Pattern in this past Saturday’s drawing, and thus, we had a playback.

Four-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Four-Number Combinations.

Powerball

Powerball didn’t see any encores, or a playback. With winning numbers 1, 20, 61, 64, 69, and PB 20, the {3-1-1-1} Pattern made its 44th appearance.

Saturday will be the Christmas Eve-Eve drawing. Will Lotto Texas and Powerball gift us with encores or rare Patterns?

Repeating Combination Bundle

The snowstorm has passed, leaving broken records, social media blow-ups, and power outages. Neither Lotto Texas nor Powerball broke any records December 9th. But, there were a few rumblings in the repeating Combinations department. We’ll get to those in a moment. First things first though: the analyses!

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

One way to obtain “Most commonly played Pattern” status is to appear in streaks. That is, appearing in at least three consecutive drawings. Saturday’s drawing saw the {3-2-1} Pattern play for the third time in a row. This time, the winning numbers were 4, 5, 10, 21, 34, and 40, bringing the number of appearances up to 783.

The {3-2-1} Pattern was liked so much, it came back a 3rd time. Source: lotterytrend.com.

With 1506 Lotto Texas drawing so far, the {3-2-1} Pattern has played 52% of the time.

Now with 134 appearances, the 3 2 1 Specific Order has played in 17.1% of the 783 drawings where the {3-2-1} Pattern has appeared. When taking all 1506 drawings into account, this Specific Order has played 8.90% of the time. Prior to Saturday night, the 3 2 1 Specific Order played in the November 4th, 2017 drawing.

Four-Number Combination(s)

Lotto Texas is sometimes fond of throwing in a repeating Four-Number Combination that debuted sometime in the previous decade. Not this time!

Did Powerball see a Pattern encore Saturday night?

General Lottery Analysis

Powerball didn’t see a Pattern encore. However, it too saw its most commonly played Pattern. The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern made its 82nd appearance with winning numbers 25, 36, 31, 55, 60, and PB 6.

Powerball could play the “Most Commonly Seen Pattern” game, too. Source: lotterytrend-powerball.com.

This Pattern has now played in roughly 36% of the 228 Powerball drawings, and was last seen in the November 11th, 2017 drawing.

With its 22nd appearance, the [1-2-1-1-1] General Order has played in 26.8% of the 82 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared. Looking at all 228 drawings, this General Order has played 9.65% of the time. We last saw the [1-2-1-1-1] General Order in the October 21st, 2017 drawing.

Now with five appearances, the 0 1 2 1 1 1 Specific Order has played in 22.7% of the 22 drawings where the [1-2-1-1-1] General Order has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 6.10% of the 82 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 2.19% of all 228 drawings. The 0 1 2 1 1 1 Specific Order previously played on April 22nd, 2017.

Will there be more repeating Four-Number and Three-Number Combinations in Wednesday’s drawing?

 

A Playback and a Spread

The word “Uneventful” does not describe the night of December 2nd. This was the night of the playback, and the similar spread. Which lottery saw which event?

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

With winning numbers 12, 15, 17, 31, 38, and 47, the {3-2-1} Pattern made its 781st appearance.

Six numbers pack a lot of power. Source: lotterytrend.com.

This Pattern has played in 51.9% of the 1504 Lotto Texas drawings, and was last seen November 25th, 2017.

Now with 145 appearances, the 3 1 2 Specific Order has played in 18.6% of the 781 drawings where the {3-2-1} Pattern has appeared. This Specific Order has now played in 9.64% of all 1504 drawings. And, it was seen alongside the {3-2-1} Pattern in the November 25th drawing.

Because the {3-2-1} Pattern and the 3 1 2 Specific Order were seen together in a previous drawing, we here at Lottery Binge call this a playback.

Four-Number Combination(s)

Lotto Texas thought the playback was enough. There were no repeating Four-Number Combinations.

Powerball

The {3-1-1-1} Pattern made its 43rd appearance, with winning numbers 28, 30, 32, 36, 58, and PB 6.

Given that there have been 226 Powerball drawings so far, this Pattern has played about 19% of the time. It was last seen in the November 15th, 2017 drawing.

The [1-3-1-1] General Order has now played 14 times, and has thus appeared in 32.6% of the 43 drawings where {3-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. This General Order has played 6.19% of the time when looking at all 226 drawings. Prior to Saturday, this General Order played in the September 23rd, 2017 drawing.

Now with four appearances, the 0 1 3 0 1 1 Specific Order has played in 28.6% of the 14 drawings where the [1-3-1-1] General Order appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 9.30% of the 43 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} pattern appeared. Finally, when looking at all 226 Powerball drawings, the 0 1 3 0 1 1 Specific Order has played 1.77% of the time. We last saw this Specific Order in the May 24th, 2017 drawing.

Similar Spread

It just so happens that Powerball also saw a similar spread. The spread was shared with the numbers in the February 18th, 2017 drawing. That night, the winning numbers were 3, 7, 9, 31, 33, and PB 20. The spread was 04:02:22:02. The spread for Saturday’s numbers was 02:02:04:22. Remember that with similar spreads, the numbers in the spreads are the same, but their orders are different.

Three-Number Combination(s)

There was also one lone repeating Three-Number Combination: 32, 36, and 58.

Not even six months and it shows up again. Source: lotterytrend-powerball.com.

It wasn’t that long ago that this Combination made its debut. More specifically, it was the June 24th, 2017 drawing.

Will either Pattern make an encore presentation in Wednesday’s drawing? Will there be more similar spreads?

 

Pattern Fall-Back

Daylight Savings Time ended in the U.S. and Canada earlier this morning. Hope everyone set their clocks back one hour!

Lottery-wise, it appeared Lotto Texas stole the show Saturday night. Powerball may not have been “in-your-face” with action, but it didn’t let Lotto Texas have all the fun. In fact, Powerball was quite fond of repetition. Pattern-wise.

Unlike the {2-2-1-1} Pattern, this General Order did not make an encore appearance. We last saw it in the October 14th, 2017 drawing.

There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations this time.

Will either Pattern make an encore appearance in this Wednesday’s drawing?

 

The Pattern Bind

“The more things change, the more they stay the same,” as they say. What does this have to do with playing the lottery, you ask? The numbers that play in any given drawing will change, that’s a given. But, there are times where a few things, oh, say a Pattern, will remain the same. Make that two Patterns. On October 25th, both Lotto Texas and Powerball saw encores for their respective Patterns.

And how fitting that as the drawings happened, the Astros would go on to tie the World Series!

It previously played in the September 9th, 2017 drawing.

Just like last time, there was a lone repeating Four-Number Combination. Wednesday’s Combination was

Before we move on to Powerball, we’d like to mention that exactly one week ago, we discussed repeating Combination 18, 25, 47, and 50. That Combination made its debut in the March 8th, 2014 drawing.

Common Was the Name of the Game

October 21st was a lot of things to a lot of people:

  • Ten days before Halloween (Have you gotten your costume yet?)
  • The Astros defeated the Yankees, and are on their way to play the Dodgers in the World Series. The first game is Tuesday.
  • There were no Pattern encores.

That last bullet is what we’re focusing on in today’s post. Although neither Lotto Texas nor Powerball saw Pattern encores Saturday night, they did see their most commonly played Patterns.

A Playback and a Storm of (Repeating) Combinations

True to the spirit of Saturday nights, October 7th was in the throes of parties. Number parties, that is. Lotto Texas saw a three-peat and Powerball? Powerball saw a repeating Four-Number Combination for the first time in seven weeks.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

Right off the heels of Tuesday’s drawing, the {3-2-1} Pattern ruled the night. Saturday night’s winning numbers were 2, 12, 28, 31, 32, and 42, bringing the total number of appearances to 775.

{3-2-1} reigns supreme. Source: lotterytrend.com.

The 2 3 1 Specific Order has appeared in 128 drawings, and has played in 16.5% of the 775 drawings where the {3-2-1} Pattern has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 8.60% of all 1488 drawings. Lately, it appears that this Specific Order is joined at the hip with the {3-2-1} Pattern, as it too was caught in the throes of a three-peat.

Contrary to popular expectations, there were no repeating Four-Number Combinations here. As we hinted at earlier, that happened in Powerball.

For those of you who’ve been following Lottery Binge, you know the rule. First the general analysis, and then the Combinations. Ahem.

This Pattern has played in roughly 19% of the 210 Powerball drawings, and was last seen about a couple of weeks ago. More specifically, in the September 23rd drawing.

Now with 18 appearances, the [1-1-3-1] General Order has played in 45% of the 40 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared. And, this General Order has played in 8.57% of all 210 drawings. This General Order is not an encore appearance. To see when this General Order previously played, we need to go back to July 15th, 2017.

Making its fourth appearance, the 1 0 0 1 3 1 Specific Order has played in 22.2% of the 18 drawings where the [1-1-3-1] General Order has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 10% of the 40 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 1.90% of all 210 drawings. And, like the [1-1-3-1] Specific Order, we need to go back to an earlier date to see when the 1 0 0 1 3 1 Specific Order previously played. In this case, we last saw the Specific Order in the June 21st, 2017 drawing.

Four-Number Combination(s)

So, for the first time in seven weeks, a repeating Four-Number Combination showed its face in Powerball:

Of course, we can’t talk about a repeating Four-Number Combination without the Three-Number Combinations that were “birthed” from it, can we?

Will either the {3-2-1} Pattern or {3-1-1-1} Pattern make an encore in Wednesday’s drawing? Will Powerball throw another zinger and play another repeating Four-Number Combination?

There were no encores for either Lotto Texas or Powerball the night of September 16th. Yet, it was far from a quiet night. Although Lotto Texas saw a repeating Four-Number Combination, it was Powerball that saw the biggest play of the evening. One of the biggest was the appearance of a Pattern so rare that it had only played twice before, and made one player $133 million richer.

Lotto Texas

With winning numbers 4, 9, 18, 36, 40, and 41, the {3-2-1} Pattern made its 772nd appearance.

This Pattern has now played in 52.1% of the 1482 Lotto Texas drawings, and was seen in the September 9th drawing exactly one week ago.

Making its 142nd appearance was the 3 1 2 Specific Order, which has now played in 18.4% of the 772 drawings where the {3-2-1} Pattern has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 9.58% of the 1482 drawings to date, and previously played on September 6th, 2017.

The repeating Four-Number Combination of the evening was 9, 18, 40, and 41.

This Combination made its debut in the August 6th, 2016 drawing. Compared to most repeating Four-Number Combinations we’ve discussed, this one is recent.

Powerball

For the third time ever, the {4-1-1} Pattern played in Powerball! The winning numbers were 17, 18, 24, 25, 31, and PB 24.

This Pattern has now played in 1.47% of the 204 Powerball drawings. We last saw this Pattern over a year ago. More specifically, the August 17th, 2016 drawing.

With its second appearance, the [4-1-1] General Order has played in 67% of the three drawings where the {4-1-1} Pattern has played, and in 0.98% of all 204 drawings. This General Order made its debut in the April 13th, 2016 drawing.

Making its world debut in Powerball was the 0 4 1 0 0 1 Specific Order. This Specific Order has now played in 50% of the two drawings where the [4-1-1] General Order has appeared, and in 33% of the three drawings where the {4-1-1} Pattern has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 0.49% of all 204 drawings.

So far, it looks like Lotto Texas and Powerball are getting ready for a big send-off to summer. Will the momentum continue into next week?
