A Change in Programming

April 14th was a night like no other. At least, not like any other we’ve seen in a while. There were a couple of commonalities between Lotto Texas and Powerball. One was that both lotteries saw one of their least commonly-seen Patterns.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

With winning numbers 1, 2, 5, 29, 35, and 36, the {3-3} Pattern made its 130th appearance.

Even with 130 appearances, that’s still a low number. Source: lotterytrend.com.

Given that there have been 1542 Lotto Texas drawings, this Pattern has played in 8.43% of them, and was last seen on February 28th, 2018.

Now with 39 appearances, the 3 3 0 Specific Order has played in 30% of the 130 drawings where {3-3} was the winning Pattern. This Specific Order has also played in 2.53% of all 1542 drawings. Prior to Saturday night, we last saw this Specific Order on April 19th, 2017.

Four-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Four-Number Combinations this time.

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

The {3-2-1} Pattern made its 17th appearance with winning numbers 17, 19, 26, 61, 62, and PB 15.

Powerball’s {3-2-1} Pattern is not very common. Source: lotterytrend-powerball.com.

This Pattern has played in 6.44% of the 264 Powerball drawings, and was last seen on March 10th, 2018.

Note that unlike the {3-2-1} Pattern in Lotto Texas, this version is one of the least-commonly played in Powerball.

With seven appearances, the [3-2-1] General Order has played in 41.2% of the 17 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern. This General Order has also played in 2.65% of all 264 drawings. We last saw the [3-2-1] General Order alongside the {3-2-1} Pattern in the earlier-mentioned March 10th drawing.

The 0 3 0 0 2 1 Specific Order made its second-ever appearance, meaning that this Specific Order has played in 28.6% of the seven drawings where the General Order of the evening was [3-2-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 11.8% of the 17 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern. Finally, when looking at all 264 drawings, this Specific Order has played 0.76% of the time. The 0 3 0 0 2 1 Specific Order made its debut in the November 29th, 2017 drawing.

Three-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations.

For the past few months, at least one of the lotteries would have a repeating Combination bonanza, either of the Three-Number kind for Powerball, or the Four-Number kind for Lotto Texas. This is the first time since January 27th, 2018 that there were no repeating Four-Number or Three-Number Combinations.

Will either the {3-3} Pattern or the (Powerball) {3-2-1} Pattern make an encore appearance Wednesday night?

Play That Back

Lotto Texas and Powerball had the honor of playing on February 28th. The month ended with one word: “playback”. In fact, our February analysis for Lotto Texas and Powerball kicked off with not one playback, but two. Which lottery, or lotteries, ended the month the way it started?

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

Wednesday’s winning numbers were 1, 5, 18, 39, 45, and 52, bringing the number of appearances of the {3-3} Pattern up to 129.

A playback could be here, somewhere. Source: lotterytrend.com.

Given that there have been 1529 Lotto Texas drawings, this Pattern has played 8.44% of the time. We last saw this Pattern in the December 27th, 2017 drawing.

The 3 0 3 Specific Order, now with 50 appearances, has played in 38.8% of the 129 drawings where {3-3} was the winning Pattern. And, it was seen alongside the {3-3} Pattern in the earlier-mentioned December 27th drawing. When looking at all 1529 drawings, this Specific Order has played 3.27% of the time.

Before moving on to the repeating Four-Number Combination(s) coverage, we would like to point out the Specific Order. Note that even though Lotto Texas saw a playback, it did not see an Australia Play. The 3 0 3 Specific Order was not the only one that could have played.

Four-Number Combination(s)

The repeating Four-Number Combinations of the evening were

  • 1, 18, 45, 52 (Debuted August 18th, 2001)
  • 5, 18, 45, 52 (Debuted April 30th, 2003)

Although neither went as far as what we saw last time, a near seventeen-year gap is impressive. Was Powerball also bit by the playback bug?

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

With wining numbers 12, 30, 59, 65, 69, and PB 16, the {3-1-1-1} Pattern played for the 52nd time.

A playback nestled in here? Source: lotterytrend-powerball.com.

Out of the 251 Powerball drawings to date, this Pattern has played in 20.7% of them, and was last seen a week ago in the February 21st drawing.

The [1-1-3-1] General Order, now with 23 appearances, has played in 44.2% of the 52 drawings where {3-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Taking all 251 drawings into account, this General Order has played 9.16% of the time. The [1-1-3-1] General Order was also seen in the February 21st drawing.

Did the Specific Order allow for a playback in Powerball, too?

The 1 0 1 0 3 1 Specific Order made its second appearance and has now played in 8.70% of the 23 drawings where [1-1-3-1] was the General Order. This Specific Order has also played in 3.85% of the 52 drawings where {3-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Finally, when taking all 251 drawings into account, this Specific Order has played roughly 0.80% of the time. It turns out that Powerball did not see a playback. The 1 0 1 0 3 1 Specific Order made its debut in the July 15th, 2017 drawing.

Three-Number Combination(s)

There weren’t any repeating Three-Number Combinations, either.

Will March see more playback madness?

The One Where a Playback Happened

This past year has been a host of the unexpected at Lottery Trend headquarters:

And yet, there’s one phenomenon that outshines them all: the playback. Playbacks occur when the Pattern, General Order (Powerball and Mega Millions only), and Specific Order played together on a previous date. Unlike the Pattern associated with an Australia Play, a “Playback Pattern” can have more than one associated General Order (if applicable) and Specific Order.

Wednesday night saw at least one playback.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

The uncommonly seen {3-3} Pattern made its 128th appearance in the December 27th drawing, with winning numbers 2, 4, 15, 38, 48, and 53.

Given that there have been 1511 Lotto Texas drawings so far, this Pattern has played in 8.47% of them. This Pattern was last seen in the October 28th, 2017 drawing.

The 3 0 3 Specific Order made its 49th appearance. This has now played in 38.3% of the 128 drawings where the {3-3} Pattern has appeared. When taking all 1511 drawings into account, this Specific Order has played 3.24% of the time. The 3 0 3 Specific Order was seen alongside the {3-3} Pattern in the October 28th drawing.

Four-Number Combination(s)

In addition to an uncommon Pattern, Wednesday night’s drawing saw the following repeating Four-Number Combination:

Unlike what we saw last time, this Combination made its debut in this decade. More specifically, the August 13th, 2011 drawing.

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

Powerball saw its most commonly seen Pattern Wednesday evening. With winning numbers 3, 9, 16, 56, 60, and PB 3, the {2-1-1-1-1} pattern has now played 85 times.

This Pattern has played in 36.5% of the 233 Powerball drawings thus far. Prior to Wednesday night, we saw this Pattern in the December 16th, 2017 drawing.

Now with 20 appearances, the [2-1-1-1-1] General Order has played in 23.5% of the 85 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared. This General Order has also played in 8.58% of all 233 drawings. The [2-1-1-1-1] General Order was last seen in the November 11th, 2017 drawing.

The 2 1 0 1 1 1 Specific Order has now played five times. Of the 20 drawings where the [2-1-1-1-1] General Order made an appearance, this Specific Order has played 25% of the time. Out of the 85 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, this Specific Order has played in 5.88% of them. Finally, when taking all 233 drawings into account, this Specific Order has played 2.15% of the time. We last saw the 2 1 0 1 1 1 Specific Order in the July 5th, 2017 drawing.

Three-Number Combination(s)

The repeating Three-Number Combination of the evening was 3, 16, 56.

Saturday is the last lottery day of 2017. How will Lotto Texas and Powerball end the year?

Pre-Halloween Playback Fever

October 28th was a good night for Netflix, nail-biting World Series games, and lottery. For those of you who enjoy playbacks, Saturday was your night! We saw a playback in Lotto Texas. Powerball was close, but a playback wasn’t meant to be. However, the Specific Order played for the first time in over a year. Which Pattern led the way to a playback in Lotto Texas, and what was that Powerball Specific Order?

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

The {3-3} Pattern made its 127th appearance with winning numbers 3, 7, 13, 37, 38, and 50.

These numbers produced a Pattern that hadn’t been seen in nearly two months. Source: lotterytrend.com.

Given that there have been 1494 Lotto Texas drawings, this Pattern has played 8.5% of the time. We last saw this Pattern about a couple of months ago in the August 30th drawing.

Now with 48 appearances, the 3 0 3 Specific Order has played in 37.8% of the 127 drawings where the {3-3} Pattern has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 3.21% of all 1494 drawings. The 3 0 3 Specific Order was also last seen on August 30th.

Note that the “previously played” date for both the Pattern and Specific Order are the same. This is not an Australia Play because the Pattern and Specific Order are not the same. Remember that in Lotto Texas, an Australia Play consists of the {2-2-2} Pattern and 2 2 2 Specific Order.

Four-Number Combination(s)

The repeating Four-Number Combination of the evening was 3, 13, 38, and 50.

With winning numbers 27, 35, 38, 57, 66, and PB 10, the {2-2-1-1} Pattern made its 64th appearance.

This Pattern has played in 29.6% of the 216 Powerball drawings, and was last seen October 18th, 2017.

Now with 20 appearances, the [1-2-2-1] General Order has played in 31.25% of the 64 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern appeared. It has also played in 9.26% of all 216 drawings, and was also seen in the October 18th drawing.

The Specific Order of the evening was 0 1 2 0 2 1. Of the 20 drawings that featured the [1-2-2-1] General Order, this Specific Order has appeared 15% of the time. This Specific Order has also played in roughly 4.69% of the 64 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared. Prior to Saturday’s drawing, the 0 1 2 0 2 1 Specific Order previously played in the June 24th, 2016 drawing.

Three-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations Saturday night.

Lotto Texas and Powerball will be the lotteries to kick off November. Will Wednesday’s drawings see any Pattern encores?

Of Nature and Numbers

The storm once known as Harvey is dead and done, now nothing more than a rain system pushing up and out through the eastern United States. Although the Sun is out, and blue skies are a much welcome sight, the aftermath will be felt for some time. The waters will recede, the clean-up will take place, and everyone impacted by the storm will eventually return to their “normal” lives. Add in the videos and photos that have made their rounds on the Internet, not to mention the records that have been broken, Harvey will be one for the history books. Regardless of your beliefs, or lack thereof, Nature is truly awe-some.

Meanwhile, in Lottery World, neither Lotto Texas nor Powerball broke any records August 30th. However, there was nothing “ho-hum” about how each lottery ended the month.

Lotto Texas

With winning numbers 11, 16, 17, 44, 52, and 54, the not-so-common {3-3} Pattern made its 126th appearance.

This Pattern has now played in 8.53% of the 1477 Lotto Texas drawings, and was last seen May 24th, 2017.

Now with 47 appearances, the 3 0 3 Specific Order has played in 37.3% of the 126 drawings where the {3-3} Pattern has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 3.18% of all 1477 drawings. The 3 0 3 Specific Order played alongside the {3-3} Pattern in the May 24th drawing.

The repeating Four-Number Combination of the evening was 16, 17, 44, and 54.

Unlike most repeating Four-Number Combinations we’ve covered, this one has appeared twice before:

Powerball

Wednesday’s winning numbers for Powerball were 19, 28, 43, 67, 69, and PB 7, bringing the number of appearances of the {2-2-1-1} Pattern to 58.

This Specific Order has also played in 3.45% of the 58 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in about 1% of all 199 drawings. The 0 2 0 1 2 1 Specific Order made its debut in the May 3rd, 2017 drawing.

The lone repeating Three-Number Combination of the evening was 28, 67, and 69.

This Combination made its debut in the September 21st, 2016 drawing.

Will either the {3-3} or {2-2-1-1} Pattern make an encore appearance? Will there be repeating Four-Number or Three-Number Combinations that have appeared multiple times before?

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.

Winning Texas Lottery numbers. From lotterytrend.com.

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.

Winning Powerball numbers. From lotterytrend-powerball.com.

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.

Repeating Three-Number Combination is at the bottom. From lotterytrend-powerball.com.

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.

Winning Texas Lottery numbers. From lotterytrend.com.

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.

Winning Texas Lottery numbers. From lotterytrend.com.

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.
