September Spice

September is nearly halfway over, and it’s almost time to say goodbye to summer. Although autumn doesn’t start until September 22nd (or 23rd), Lotto Texas and Powerball were getting ready for a big send off. That is, if the results from September 13th were anything to go by. Whether it was a Pattern that doesn’t show up often in Lotto Texas, or three repeating Three-Number Combinations in Powerball, Wednesday night was far from boring!

Of course, if you’re reading from the Southern Hemisphere, replace “winter” with “spring”.

Lotto Texas

With winning numbers 24, 35, 40, 42, 45, and 48, the {4-2} Pattern made its 167th appearance.

This Pattern has now played in 11.3% of the 1481 Lotto Texas drawings, and was last seen on August 16th, 2017.

Now with 29 appearances, the 0 2 4 Specific Order has played in 17.4% of the 167 drawings where the {4-2} Pattern has appeared, and in 1.96% of all 1481 drawings. Prior to Wednesday night, this Specific Order played in the December 14th, 2016 drawing.

Here’s a real treat: 35, 40, 42, and 48, the sole repeating Four-Number Combination, made its debut nearly nine-and-a-half years ago! To be more specific, this Combination made its debut in the March 19th, 2008 drawing.

The {2-2-1-1} Pattern made its 60th appearance, with winning numbers 17, 24, 35, 57, 63, and PB 19.

With only two more drawings for Lotto Texas and Powerball left this summer, was Wednesday night truly a sign of things to come?

 

Of Common Patterns

After a quiet night, the lotteries came swinging on September 9th. Both Lotto Texas and Powerball saw their most commonly played Patterns, and were accompanied by a repeating Four-Number and Three-Number Combination, respectively. Also, in what may have been the biggest play of the evening, a Specific Order played for the first time in over a year!

Lotto Texas

Right off the heels of this past Wednesday’s drawing, the {3-2-1} Pattern made its 771st appearance. The winning numbers were 9, 26, 32, 34, 42, and 51.

Will Wednesday night feature a repeat appearance for either the {3-2-1} or the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern?

{2-1-1-1-1} Blocker

The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern did not, repeat, did not make a fifth consecutive appearance in the September 8th drawing. Instead, we saw a Pattern that, although has played a respectable number of times, hasn’t played nearly as often. This Pattern was also accompanied by two repeating Three-Number Combinations.

The Pattern of the evening was {3-1-1-1}. With winning numbers 4, 5, 14, 26, 73, and MB 14, this Pattern has now played 67 times.

Will the {3-1-1-1} Pattern be bold enough to make an encore in Tuesday’s drawing?

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.

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.

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?

Lottery Pick-Me-Up

The rain has finally stopped for us, which should make rescue and recovery efforts a bit easier. However, Harvey’s like the Energizer Bunny. The people of the Golden Triangle region of Texas, as well as Southwestern Louisiana, are still getting pounded by torrential rain.  On the (much) lighter side of things, Mega Millions saw an encore for the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern Tuesday night.

With its 168th appearance on August 29th, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has now played in 41.7% of the 403 drawings. The winning numbers were 2, 13, 17, 35, 73 and MB 3.

Prior to Tuesday night, we last saw the 2 1 1 0 1 1 Specific Order in the July 14th, 2017 drawing.

Accompanying the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern was repeating Three-Number Combination 2, 35, and MB 3.

This Combination made its debut in the October 10th, 2014 drawing.

As the remnants of Harvey finally push onward and upward, will Friday’s drawing see a three-peat for the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern, or will it be swept by the current?

A Night of Whammies

 

We got lucky. Taken the Sunday after the storm.

The storms produced by Harvey on August 26th knocked out our electricity, and we got our power back just a few hours ago. Our street flooded, and we didn’t get any water in the house, thankfully. However, the same couldn’t be said for thousands of others, to whom we send our thoughts and prayers. With the forecast for even more rain as the storm trudges into the Gulf again, we truly are, pardon the expression, in uncharted waters.

On the lottery side of things, both Lotto Texas and Powerball saw their most commonly played Patterns that night.

Lotto Texas

The {3-2-1} Pattern went for the three-peat Saturday night. With winning numbers 7, 11, 33, 41, 43, and 49, this Pattern has played in 769 drawings.

Statistics-wise, this Pattern has now played in 52.1% of the 1476 Lotto Texas drawings.

Life—and Mega Millions—Goes On

We ask our readers to keep the people of Texas in your thoughts. The area around Corpus Christi got a walloping last night from Hurricane Harvey. Although the Houston metro area is far away from the eye, we here at Lottery Binge lost our power for about forty-five minutes last night. Even though the storm has made landfall, it’s not over yet. Near-historic rainfall is predicted for much of coastal Texas, and if the recent past is anything to go by, Houston does not cope with flooding well.

Despite Mother Nature, Mega Millions took the old saying “The show must go on” to heart. While Harvey smashed into the Texas coast, there was no three-peat for the {3-1-1-1} Pattern. Instead, we saw the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern in the August 25th drawing. With winning numbers 17, 38, 42, 51, 65, and MB 11, this Pattern has now played 167 times, and remains second-to-none.

Prior to Friday night, we last saw this Pattern earlier in the month. To be more specific, it was during the August 8th drawing. This Pattern has now played in 41.5% of the 402 Mega Millions drawings.

Making its 48th appearance, the [1-2-1-1-1] General Order has played in 28.7% of the 167 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared. This General Order has also played in 11.9% of the 402 Mega Millions drawings, and was last seen in the July 21st, 2017 drawing.

Now with nine appearances, the 0 1 2 1 1 1 Specific Order has played in 18.75% of the 48 drawings where the [1-2-1-1-1] General Order has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 5.39% of the 167 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 2.24% of all 402 drawings. This Specific Order was seen alongside the [1-2-1-1-1] General Order in the July 21st drawing.

There were also two repeating Three-Number Combinations:

  • 42, 57, 65 (Debuted November 8th, 2013)
  • 17, 51, 65 (Debuted September 18th, 2015)

Fun fact: There was another repeating Three-Number Combination that made its debut in the September 18th, 2015 drawing.

As the rain comes down and we look ahead to next week, will the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern make an encore, or will other Patterns play?

A Storm of {3-2-1}

As we here at Lottery Binge headquarters brace for a deluge and high winds, Lotto Texas and Powerball were brewing up a storm of their own the night of August 23rd. For starters, both lotteries saw the {3-2-1} Pattern. This was an encore appearance in Lotto Texas, and for one Powerball player, a night to remember.

Will either {3-2-1} Pattern make a repeat appearance Saturday night, or will they get swept away?

Repeating the Pattern

School has started up once again in our part of Lottery Trend Country. Be it heavy morning traffic or a storm brewing in the Gulf, there isn’t much that can deter Mega Millions. Feeling proud of itself after Friday night’s showing, the {3-1-1-1} Pattern made an encore appearance in the August 22nd drawing. Along for the ride were three repeating Three-Number Combinations.

Tuesday’s winning numbers were 24, 35, 46, 50, 51, and MB 7, bringing the total number of appearances of the {3-1-1-1} Pattern to 66.

The Big 400

Summer vacation’s just about over in our part of Lottery Trend Country. What better way to say “Sayonara” to summer than hitting a milestone? The night of August 18th was the 400th Mega Millions drawing. To be more specific, it was the 400th drawing with number balls 1 through 75, and Mega Balls (MBs) 1 through 15. Although we didn’t see a Pattern encore, there was a repeating Three-Number Combination.

Friday’s winning numbers were 1, 31, 34, 40, 75, and MB 6, bringing the number of appearances of the {3-1-1-1} Pattern to 65.
