Leading Threes

Saturday night’s momentum continued into the May 24th drawings for Lotto Texas and Powerball. Both lotteries saw big plays! One such play came in the form of our dear friends the repeating Combinations. Lotto Texas saw a repeating Four-Number Combination and Powerball had a repeating Three-Number Combination.

And in both Lotto Texas and Powerball, the number three (3) was not in short supply.

Lotto Texas

The not oft-seen {3-3} Pattern played for the 125th time, with winning numbers 11, 13, 17, 48, 51, and 54.

This Pattern has now played in 8.63% of the 1449 Lotto Texas drawings, and previously played in the April 19th, 2017 drawing.

Making its 46th appearance, the 3 0 3 Specific Order has now played in 36.8% of the 125 drawings where the {3-3} Pattern has appeared, and in 3.17% of all drawings. Prior to Wednesday night’s drawing, this Specific Order was last seen in the April 8th, 2017 drawing.

The repeating Four-Number Combination of the evening was 13, 48, 51, and 54.

This Combination made its debut in the January 27th, 2010 drawing.

Powerball

Right off the heels of Saturday’s drawing, the {3-1-1-1} Pattern made an encore appearance. This time, the winning numbers were 28, 32, 33, 38, 62, and PB 15.

Now with 33 appearances, this Pattern has played in 19.3% of the 171 Powerball drawings.

Making its twelfth appearance, the [1-3-1-1] General Order has played in 36.4% of the 33 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 7.02% of all drawings. This General Order was last seen in the April 26th, 2017 drawing.

With three appearances, the 0 1 3 0 1 1 Specific Order has now played in 25% of the 12 drawings where the [1-3-1-1] General Order has appeared, and approximately 9.09% of the 33 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared. When looking at all 171 Powerball drawings, this statistic becomes 1.75%. This Specific Order was last seen in the early days of Lottery Binge: June 1st, 2016, to be exact.

The repeating Three-Number Combination was 28, 33, and 38.

The debut for this Combination was in the February 15th, 2017 drawing a little over three months ago.

Looks like Lotto Texas and Powerball are ready to kick it into high gear for summer. Will the lead-in to the Memorial Day weekend be a fireworks show or will things mellow out?

3-2-New

Any night where a Five-Number Combination repeats in Lotto Texas is going to be a tough act to follow. After this past Saturday, it wouldn’t have been unusual for Wednesday night to have been much quieter. If by “quiet”, it meant the second appearance of an uncommonly seen Pattern in the space of 11 days in Lotto Texas, or the debut of a Specific Order in Powerball, then April 19th had a quiet night, alright.

Lotto Texas

The not-so-often-seen {3-3} Pattern made its 124th appearance, with winning numbers 3, 4, 13, 22, 23, and 32.

Winning Texas Lottery numbers

With 1439 Lotto Texas drawings to date, this Pattern has played in 8.62% of them, and was last seen in the April 8th drawing about a week-and-a-half ago.

Now with 38 appearances, the 3 3 0 Specific Order has played in 30.6% of the 124 drawings where the {3-3} Pattern has appeared. This becomes 2.64% when looking at all 1439 drawings. To see when the 3 3 0 Specific Order previously played, refer to the October 22nd, 2016 drawing.

Another big development in Lotto Texas was the repeat appearance of two Four-Number Combinations. The Combinations this time around were

  • 3, 4, 23, 32, which debuted on December 17th, 2008 and
  • 3, 4, 22, 23, which debuted on November 29th, 2014

Powerball

Powerball managed to take some of Lotto Texas’s thunder Wednesday night. The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern made an encore appearance, with winning numbers 1, 19, 37, 40, 52, and PB 15.

Winning Powerball numbers.

With 58 appearances to date, this Pattern has played in 36.02% of the 161 drawings. Recall that this Pattern previously played in this past Saturday’s drawing.

Making its 13th appearance, the [1-1-2-1-1] General Order has played in 22.4% of the 58 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 8.07% of all 161 drawings. Prior to Wednesday, the [1-1-2-1-1] General Order previously played in the April 8th drawing 11 days ago.

Perhaps the biggest development in Powerball was the debut of the 1 1 2 1 0 1 Specific Order. This Specific Order has now played in 7.69% of the 13 drawings where the [1-1-2-1-1] General Order appeared. When taking the 58 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern appeared, this becomes 1.72%, and 0.62% overall.

Will there be a major upset in one of the Saturday night drawings, or will it be a “normal” night?

Rollercoaster Night

Posts that analyze Saturday night results are truly something here at Lottery Binge. There’s more to it than just two distinct lotteries having their own drawings.  Lotto Texas and Powerball have their moments when they both have blowout appearances, and others when they both keep it low-key. Sometimes, like what happened on April 8th, neither of these scenarios play out. Instead, we had one lottery where an uncommon Pattern played, and another where a very commonly played Pattern took the reins.

Lotto Texas

The not often seen {3-3} Pattern made its 123rd appearance with winning numbers 10, 11, 12, 47, 48, and 52.

Winning Texas Lottery numbers.

As there have been 1436 Lotto Texas drawings to date, this Pattern has now played approximately 9.14% of the time. Prior to Saturday, the {3-3} Pattern previously played in the February 15th, 2017 drawing.

On the Specific Order side of things, 3 0 3 made its 45th appearance. This Specific Order has now played in 36.6% of the 123 drawings where the {3-3} Pattern has appeared, and in 3.13% of all drawings. Like the {3-3} Pattern, the 3 0 3 was last seen on February 15th.

Lotto Texas also gifted us with the repeating Four-Number Combination 10, 11, 12, and 47.

The repeating Four-Number Combo is highlighted.

This Combination made its debut near the end of last year in the December 28th, 2016 drawing.

Powerball

The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern is the most commonly seen Pattern in Powerball, and held onto its reign with winning numbers 23, 36, 51, 53, 60, and PB 15.

Winning Powerball numbers.

Now with 56 appearances, this Pattern has now played in 35.4% of the 158 Powerball drawings thus far. The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern previously played in the April 1st drawing one week prior.

Next, the [1-1-2-1-1] General Order made its 12th appearance, its first since the March 29th, 2017 drawing. This General Order has played in approximately 21.4% of the 56 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 7.59% of all drawings.

Finally, the 0 1 1 2 1 1 Specific Order made its second-ever appearance. This Specific Order has now played in 16.67% of the 12 drawings where the [1-1-2-1-1] General Order has appeared. Continuing onward, we see that this Specific Order has also played in 3.57% of the 56 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 1.27% of all Powerball drawings. The 0 1 1 2 1 1 Specific Order made its debut in the November 5th, 2016 drawing.

Looking to the week ahead, will any Pattern streaks be established, or will even rarer Patterns appear?

 

Coupling Up After Valentine’s Day

Roses are red

No need to feel sour

Two lotteries in one night

Numbers wield great power

And lots of it. This February 15th was more than just the day after Valentine’s Day. Lotto Texas and Powerball had their drawings, and there was coupling up in both. By “coupling up”, we mean there was a Pattern and an Order that shared a “previously played” date. The dates, of course, varied.

Lotto Texas

For the 122nd time, the {3-3} Pattern came out to play. The winning numbers were 1, 4, 5, 43, 53, and 54.

This Pattern has now appeared in 8.59% of the 1421 Lotto Texas drawings to date, and was last seen in the January 21st, 2017 drawing.

The 3 0 3 Specific Order made its 44th appearance, and has now played in 36.1% of the 122 drawings where the {3-3} Pattern has appeared, and in 3.1% of all drawings. Like the {3-3} Pattern, this Specific Order was last seen a few weeks ago in the January 21st drawing.

There were no repeating Four-Number Combinations, sorry to say

Those will have to wait for another day.

Powerball

The Powerball Pattern of the evening was {3-1-1-1}, with winning numbers 5, 28, 33, 38, 42, and PB 19.

Winning Powerball numbers. From lotterytrend-powerball.com.

Now with 27 appearances, this Pattern has now played in 18.9% of the 143 Powerball drawings. We last saw this Pattern exactly two weeks prior in the February 1st drawing.

Next, the [1-1-3-1] General Order made its 11th appearance, and it was also last seen on February 1st. With that said, this General Order has now played in 40.7% of the 27 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 7.69% of all drawings.

The 1 1 3 0 0 1 Specific Order made its world debut, meaning that it has now played in 9.09% of the eleven drawings where the [1-1-3-1-] General Order has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 3.70% of the 27 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 0.7% of all drawings.

Talk of a repeating Three-Number Combination, that we can do

It came in the form of 28, 38, and 42

The repeating Three-Number Combination is highlighted in the red box.

This past Christmas Eve was when it made its debut.

It definitely can be said

That momentum for Lotto Texas and Powerball is far from dead!

What will the weekend have in store?

Will there be a lull or a mighty uproar?

Encores and Debuts

In an interesting turn of events, Saturday’s Lotto Texas drawing was an encore through-and-through. Of course, the numbers were different this time around. Meanwhile, Powerball saw a Specific Order make its debut.

Lotto Texas

The {3-3} Pattern made an encore appearance in the January 21st drawing. The winning numbers this time around were 2, 13, 17, 39, 41, and 46.

Now with 121 appearances, this Pattern has played in 8.56% of the 1414 Lotto Texas drawings. Recall that we last saw the {3-3} Pattern in Wednesday’s drawing.

Like the {3-3} Pattern, the 3 0 3 Specific Order also made its last appearance in Wednesday’s drawing. With 43 appearances, this Specific Order has played in 35.5% of the 121 drawings where the {3-3} Pattern has appeared, and in 3.04% of all drawings.

Our Lotto Texas coverage concludes with the appearance of repeating Four-Number Combination 2, 13, 17, and 39.

To see when this Combination debuted, we need to go back to September 24th, 2008. Eight years and three (going on four) months is quite a length of time to go before appearing again. Then again, that’s nothing compared to what we have seen.

Powerball

The {2-2-1-1} Pattern made its 45th appearance, with winning numbers 23, 25, 45, 52, 67, and PB 2.

This Pattern has played in 33.1% of the 136 Powerball drawings and was last seen in the New Year’s Eve drawing.

The [2-2-1-1] General Order made its 17th appearance, bringing its play tally up to 37.8% of the 45 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and 11.6% of all drawings. Prior to Saturday, we last saw the [2-2-1-1] General Order in the December 14th, 2016 drawing.

Saturday’s drawing marked the debut of the 0 2 0 2 1 1 1 Specific Order. This Specific Order has played in 5.89% of the 17 drawings where the [2-2-1-1] General Order has appeared. Additionally, it has played in 2.22% of the 45 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 0.68% of all drawings.

The repeating Three-Number Combination of the evening was 23, 25, and 67.

This Three-Number Combination debuted May 18th, 2016, just a few days before Lottery Binge launched.

The last full week of January is upon us, and for our U.S. readers, there are only two weeks left before the Super Bowl. Will Lotto Texas and Powerball continue to go for big plays and the unexpected, or will they mellow out?

 

A (Mostly) November-December Dance

Wednesday means Hump Day, and what better way to get over the hump than to see a not-so-common Pattern get a play? The January 18th drawing for Lotto Texas not only saw an uncommon Pattern, but a repeating Four-Number Combination that debuted nearly ten years ago! We also noticed that many of the “Previously played” dates for both Lotto Texas and Powerball happened to be from this past November and December.

Lotto Texas

The not-oft seen {3-3} Pattern made its 120th appearance, thanks to winning numbers 6, 11, 17, 37, 40, and 49.

This Pattern has now played in 8.49% of the 1413 drawings, and was last seen in the November 30th, 2016 drawing.

The Specific Order of the evening was 3 0 3. Now with 42 appearances, this Specific Order has played in 35% of the 120 drawings where the {3-3} Pattern appeared, and in 2.97% of all drawings. Prior to Wednesday, the 3 0 3 Specific Order previously played in the November 16th, 2016 drawing.

The repeating Four-Number Combination this time around was 6, 11, 17, and 40, and it made its debut in the May 16th, 2007 drawing.

Powerball

Unlike Lotto Texas, Powerball did not see a rarely-played Pattern or repeating Combinations. Instead, we were treated to the 47th appearance of the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern, ensuring its dominance. The winning numbers were 9, 40, 41, 53, 58, and PB 12.

Winning Powerball numbers. From lotterytrend-powerball.com.
Winning Powerball numbers. From lotterytrend-powerball.com.

Having now made 47 appearances, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has played in 34.8% of 135 Powerball drawings. We last saw this Pattern in the January 7th, 2017 drawing.

The [1-2-1-1-1] General Order made its 12th appearance, its first since the December 21st, 2016 drawing. This General Order has played in 25.5% of the 47 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 8.89% of all Powerball drawings.

Finally, we come to the 1 0 2 1 1 1 Specific Order, making its third appearance. This Specific Order has played in 25% of the 12 drawings where the [1-2-1-1-1] General Order has appeared, 6.38% of the 47 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 2.22% of all drawings. The 1 0 2 1 1 1 Specific Order previously played in the November 23rd, 2016 drawing.

Will the rarely-seen {3-3} Pattern go for an encore in Lotto Texas? Will Powerball take a dip in the “not-often-seen Pattern” pool?

A Chilly Finish

And so we’ve come to the end of November. There was nothing explosive in either the Lotto Texas or Powerball drawings Wednesday night. However, one spark of warmth appeared in Powerball.

Lotto Texas

The {3-3} Pattern made its 119th appearance, thanks to winning numbers 22, 26, 36, 45, 47, and 49.

Winning Texas Lotto numbers. From lotterytrend.com.
Winning Texas Lotto numbers. From lotterytrend.com.

Now that there have been 1399 Lotto Texas drawings to date, the {3-3} Pattern has now played 8.51% of the time. We last saw this Pattern a few weeks ago, in the November 16th drawing.

Next, we come to the 0 3 3 Specific Order, making its 41st appearance. This Specific Order has now appeared in 34.5% of the 119 drawings where the {3-3} Pattern has played and 2.93% of all Lotto Texas drawings. To see when the 0 3 3 Specific Order previously played, we need to go back to March 2nd, 2016.

Powerball

We saw the {2-2-1-1} Pattern make its 40th appearance. The winning numbers were 3, 14, 18, 25, 45, and PB 7.

Before you shout “Powerball Pattern Tango!” keep in mind that the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has made 42 appearances. Any murmurs of this Tango returning are premature at best.

Now, referring to the {2-2-1-1} Pattern, it has now played in 33.1% of all 121 Powerball drawings. We last saw this Pattern in the October 26th, 2016 drawing.

The [2-2-1-1] General Order made its 14th appearance, its first since the September 28th, 2016 drawing. This General Order has now played in 35% of the 40 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has played, and 11.6% of all Powerball drawings.

Our Powerball coverage continues with the 2 2 0 1 0 1 Specific Order. With its fourth appearance, this Specific Order has played in 28.6% of the 14 drawings the [2-2-1-1] General Order has appeared, and 10% of the 40 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared. Prior to Wednesday, the 2 2 0 1 0 1 Specific Order played in the March 23rd, 2016 drawing.

The spark of warmth came from the repeating Three-Number Combination 3, 18, and 25.

As we draw closer to the end of 2016, what will Lotto Texas and Powerball have in store?

Nice and Toasty

With a big temperature cool-down making its way through Lottery Trend Country, Lotto Texas and Powerball played it safe on November 16th. How safe? They played so safe that they wrapped themselves up in the blanket of familiar plays. By “familiar” we mean “Patterns that we saw just last week.”

Lotto Texas

We saw the 118th appearance of the {3-3} Pattern thanks to winning numbers 4, 5, 7, 37, 43, and 51.

Winning Texas Lotto numbers. From lotterytrend.com.
Winning Texas Lotto numbers. From lotterytrend.com.

As of Wednesday, the {3-3} Pattern has played in 8.46% of the 1395 Lotto Texas drawings. We saw this Pattern last week in the November 9th drawing.

The 3 0 3 Specific Order made its 41st appearance. Like the {3-3} Pattern, it too was last seen on November 9th. This Specific Order has played in 34.7% of the 118 drawings where the {3-3} Pattern appeared, and has played in 2.94% of all drawings.

Powerball

Powerball saw an encore appearance of the {3-1-1-1} Pattern. The winning numbers were 28, 41, 61, 63, 65, and PB7.

Winning Powerball numbers. From lotterytrend-powerball.com
Winning Powerball numbers. From lotterytrend-powerball.com

Now with 20 appearances, the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has played in 17.1% of the 117 Powerball drawings.

This gave way to the [1-1-3-1] General Order making its eighth appearance, its first since the October 15th, 2016 drawing. The [1-1-3-1] General Order has now appeared in 40% of the 20 drawings where {3-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern, and approximately 6.84% of all 117 drawings.

We wrap up our coverage with the 0 1 1 0 3 1 Specific Order. Making its second appearance, this Specific Order has now appeared in 25% of the eight drawings the [1-1-3-1] General Order has played. When looking at the 20 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has played, this becomes 10%. This becomes 1.71% when looking at all 117 drawings. The 0 1 1 0 3 1 Specific Order made its debut in the February 24th, 2016 drawing.

Will Lotto Texas and Powerball continue to stay in their cool-down phase or will they warm up as the holiday season fast approaches?

A Balance in the Force

After the Earth-shattering results of the U.S. election and the rumblings in Mega Millions, we entered calmer waters on November 9th. That is, if seeing repeating Four-Number Combinations, one of which hadn’t been seen since last decade, could be considered calm.

Lotto Texas

For starters, Lotto Texas saw the not-so-common {3-3} Pattern make its 117th appearance. Wednesday’s winning numbers were 2, 9, 18, 42, 51, and 52.

Winning Texas Lotto numbers. From lotterytrend.com.
Winning Texas Lotto numbers. From lotterytrend.com.

The {3-3} Pattern has played in 8.40% of the 1393 drawings that have taken place so far. This Pattern was last seen a few weeks ago in the October 22nd, 2016 drawing.

The Specific Order of the evening was 3 0 3, making its 40th appearance. Out of the 117 times the {3-3} Pattern has played, the 3 0 3 Specific Order has played 34.2% of the time. When taking all 1393 drawings into account, this frequency whittles down to 2.87%. We last saw this Specific Order in the August 10th, 2016 drawing.

One highlight of the evening was the repeat occurrence of the following Four-Number Combinations:

  • 2, 9, 42, and 52, which first played way back on January 25th, 2003
  • 18, 42, 51, and 52, which first played March 5th, 2014 and
  • 2, 18, 51, and 52, which first played August 25th, 2010.

Powerball

What we saw in Powerball could end up putting the kibosh on the Powerball Pattern Tango, at least for the time being. The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern, having previously played in Saturday’s drawing, made an encore appearance. Now coming in with 41 appearances, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern holds on to its title as Most Commonly Played Powerball Pattern. This encore was thanks to winning numbers 1, 25, 28, 31, 54, and PB 2.

Winning Powerball numbers. From lotterytrend-powerball.com.
Winning Powerball numbers. From lotterytrend-powerball.com.

The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared in 35.7% of the 115 Powerball drawings.

The [1-2-1-1-1] General Order made it is ninth appearance, its first since the October 5th, 2016 drawing. Of the 41 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern, the [1-2-1-1-1] General Order has played 22% of the time. When taking all 115 drawings into account, this Pattern has played 7.83% of the time.

Finally, we come to the 1 2 1 1 0 1 Specific Order, which made its second appearance. In the 9 drawings where the [1-2-1-1-1] General Order appeared, the 1 2 1 1 0 1 Specific Order has played 22.2% of the time. This becomes 4.88% when looking at the 41 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern appeared, and 1.74% of all 115 drawings.  The 1 2 1 1 0 1 Specific Order made its debut in the April 16th, 2016 drawing.

Will the {3-3} Pattern be bold enough to make an encore appearance in Lotto Texas Saturday? Has the Powerball Pattern Tango finally come to an end?

Saturday Night Gems

The night of October 22nd was full of joy and sorrow in Lottery Trend Country. For starters, SMU beat UH like it stole something. After this ritualistic beat-down had taken place, Lotto Texas saw a Pattern that hadn’t played since this summer, and Powerball saw the debut of a Specific Order. Also on the Powerball side of things was a disturbance in the Pattern force.

Lotto Texas

The {3-3} Pattern made its first appearance since the August 16th drawing. The numbers that made it all possible were 2, 5, 14, 25, 26, and 30.

Now having played 116 times, and with 1388 Lotto Texas drawings to date, the {3-3} Pattern has played 8.36% of the time.

The 3 3 0 Specific Order made its 37th appearance, and out of the 116 drawings where {3-3} was the winning Pattern, this Specific Order has played 31.9% of the time. When we look at all 1388 drawings, this shrinks to 2.67%. We last saw this Specific Order play a little over a year ago in the October 17th, 2015 drawing.

When it comes to Combinations, we saw the Four-Number Combination 5, 14, 26, and 30 make a repeat appearance.

This Combination made its first appearance two years ago in the September 17th, 2014 drawing.

Powerball

Once again, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has taken back its title as Most Commonly Played Powerball Pattern. The 39th appearance is thanks to winning numbers 1, 28, 33, 55, 56, and PB 22.

Winning Powerball numbers from lotterytrend-powerball.com.

Now, out of the 110 Powerball drawings, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has played 35.5% of the time. The last time we saw this Pattern was in the October 5th drawing a few weeks ago. In that scenario, it had tied with the {2-2-1-1} Pattern. Hopefully, this is not the start of Pattern Tango: Part Deux!

Moving on, we come to the [1-1-1-2-1] General Order, which has now made 17 appearances. In the 39 drawings that {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern, the [1-1-1-2-1] General Order has played 43.6% of the time. This becomes 15.5% when we look at all 110 Powerball drawings. To see when this General Order previously played, we need to go back to the September 3rd, 2016 drawing.

Powerball knocked it out of the park with the debut of the 1 1 1 2 0 1 Specific Order. Given the 17 drawings that the [1-1-1-2-1] has appeared in, this Specific Order has appeared in 5.88% of them. When taking the 39 {2-1-1-1-1} drawings into account, the percentage drops to 2.56%. Finally, looking at all 110 drawings, the 1 1 1 2 0 1 Specific Order has played 0.91% of the time.

As the final (full) week of October gets underway, will the {3-3} Lotto Texas Pattern dare to make an encore appearance? Will the {2-1-1-1-1} retain its title or will it be ensnared in another Pattern Tango with {2-2-1-1}?
