On Familiar Ground

Compared to what we’ve seen for the past few drawings, Lotto Texas and Powerball saw a cool-down on November 5th. How much of a cool-down? Let’s just say that what we saw was *very* common, Pattern-wise, at least.

Lotto Texas

The {3-2-1} Pattern made an encore appearance Saturday, bringing its total number of appearances to 725.The winning numbers were 4, 27, 30, 38, 47, and 49.

Out of the 1392 Lotto Texas drawings to date, the {3-2-1} Pattern has played 52.1% of the time, and holds the title of Most Commonly Played Pattern with no competition. Recall that we last saw this Pattern in Wednesday’s drawing.

The 1 2 3 Specific Order made its 135th appearance, its first since the October 19th, 2016 drawing. This Specific Order has played in 18.6% of the 725 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern. When we look at all 1392 drawings, this becomes 9.70% of the time.

Powerball

The {2-1-1-1-1} made its 40th appearance, its first since the October 22nd, 2016 drawing. This was thanks to winning numbers 21, 31, 50, 51, 69, and PB 8.

This Pattern has played in 35.1% of the 114 drawings and has once again reclaimed the title of Most Commonly Played Pattern in Powerball.  Whether this is just the rumblings of another Powerball Pattern Tango is anyone’s guess.

Moving on to the General Order, we saw [1-1-2-1-1] make its ninth appearance, the first since the September 17th, 2016 drawing. The [1-1-2-1-1] General Order has played in 22.5% of the 40 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. This becomes 7.89% of the time when we take all 114 drawings into account.

The most stand-out feature of the evening was the debut of the 0 1 1 2 1 1 Specific Order. This Specific Order has now played in 11.1% of the drawings where [1-1-2-1-1] was the General Order of the evening. When looking at the 40 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the Pattern, the 0 1 1 2 1 1 Specific Order has played 2.5% of the time. Finally, when looking at all 114 drawings, this becomes 0.88% of the time.

As we walk into another week bound for the history books, will Lotto Texas or Powerball break any records? Will the Powerball Pattern Tango resurface once again?

New Month Order

As World Series hysteria reached its apex and the U.S. presidential campaigns entered the home stretch, Mega Millions once again came at us with its own brand of madness! While the Pattern we saw was a common one, we saw something unusual in the Three-Number Combinations. In fact, we here at Lottery Binge can say that the night of November 4th, 2016, is one for the Mega Millions history books.

Friday marked the 128th appearance of the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern. The winning numbers were as follows: 10, 29, 32, 44, 46, and MB 10.

Winning Mega Millions numbers. From lotterytrend-megamillions.com.
Winning Mega Millions numbers. From lotterytrend-megamillions.com.

The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has now played in 40.3% of the 318 drawings that have occurred so far. Prior to Friday’s drawing, we last saw this Pattern a week ago in the October 28th drawing.

The General Order of the evening was [1-1-2-1-1], now having made its 29th appearance. Like the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern, the [1-1-2-1-1] General Order was previously seen in the October 28th drawing. Out of the 128 drawings with {2-1-1-1-1} as the winning Pattern, the [1-1-2-1-1] General Order has played 22.7% of the time. When we look at all 318 drawings, this shrinks to 9.12%.

The 1 1 2 1 0 1 Specific Order made its ninth appearance, its first since the March 1st, 2016 drawing. Given that there are now 29 drawings with [1-1-2-1-1] as the General Order, the 1 1 2 1 0 1 Specific Order has played approximately 31% of the time. When taking the 128 drawings in which the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, the 1 1 2 1 0 1 Specific Order has played 7.03% of the time. This becomes 2.83% of the time when we look at all 318 drawings.

And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for. There were four Three-Number Combinations that repeated, but here’s the catch.

Are you ready?

Some of these Combinations have played twice before!

To keep things a bit simpler, we’re going to break it down into the Three-Number Combinations that have appeared once before, and the Combinations that have played twice already.

The ones that have only played once before are:

  • 29, 32, and 46, which first played February 21st, 2014 and
  • 32, 46, and MB 10, which first played July 31st, 2015.

The ones that have played twice before are:

  • 10, 29, and MB 10, which first played March 4th, 2014 and again on May 19th, 2015, and
  • 29, 46, and MB 10, which first played June 27th, 2014 and again on July 5th, 2016.
The Three-Number Combinations that have played twice are highlighted in red. Combinations that have played three times are highlighted in blue.

As one historic week comes to an end and we enter another one, will there be other Three-Number Combinations that play for a third time? Will an extremely rare Pattern get its chance to play?

Big League Plays

Chicago beating Cleveland wasn’t the only thing that happened on November 2nd! As the Cubs and the Indians went head-to-head in a nail-biter that will be talked about for years to come, Lotto Texas saw a Four-Number Combination that debuted last decade. The Powerball Pattern Tango was put on hold once again—but things heated up with an Australia Play!

Here is the rundown for Lotto Texas and Powerball on what was truly a historic night.

Lotto Texas

The {3-2-1} remains the most commonly seen Pattern, with Wednesday’s drawing marking its 724th appearance. The winning numbers were 3, 4, 29, 31, 33, and 50.

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

The {3-2-1} Pattern has played in 52% of the 1391 drawings that Lotto Texas has had so far. We last saw this Pattern last week in the October 26th drawing.

The 2 3 1 Specific Order made its 119th appearance, its first since the September 7th, 2016 drawing. Out of the 724 drawings in which the {3-2-1} has appeared, the 2 3 1 Specific Order has played 16.4% of the time. This becomes 8.55% when we look at all 1391 drawings.

The Four-Number Combination 3, 4, 31, 50 made its second appearance. To see when this Combination debuted, we need to go back to January 30th, 2008.

Powerball

The {1-1-1-1-1-1} Pattern made its twelfth appearance Wednesday, thanks to winning numbers 13, 18, 37, 54, 61 and PB 5.

Given that there have been 113 drawings, the {1-1-1-1-1-1} Pattern has played 10.6% of the time. The thing about Australia Plays in Powerball (and Mega Millions) is that not only is the Pattern {1-1-1-1-1-1}, it follows that the General Order is [1-1-1-1-1-1] and the Specific Order is 1 1 1 1 1 1. Just like the {1-1-1-1-1-1} Pattern, these have also played 10.6% of the time. We last saw the Australia Play in the October 19th, 2016 drawing.

Will Lotto Texas get in on the Australia Play action, or will another rarely-seen Pattern play? Will there be a definite Pattern that takes the title of Most Commonly Seen Pattern in Powerball?

“November” in 3-2-1

It’s hard to believe that we’re already in November! In between the madness of the World Series, the upcoming U.S. Presidential elections, and the start of the holiday season, of course Mega Millions didn’t want to feel left out! The November 1st, 2016 drawing gifted us with a Pattern that doesn’t get much play.

The 19th appearance of the {3-2-1} Pattern was thanks to winning numbers 19, 24, 31, 39, 45, and MB 13.

Winning Mega Millions numbers. From lotterytrend-megamillions.com.
Winning Mega Millions numbers. From lotterytrend-megamillions.com.

Out of the 317 Mega Millions drawings thus far, the {3-2-1} Pattern has played 5.99% of the time. We last saw this Pattern in the September 30th, 2016 drawing.

The [2-3-1] General Order made its 11th appearance Tuesday night, and like the {3-2-1} Pattern, it previously played in the September 30th drawing. Out of the 19 drawings in which the {3-2-1} Pattern appeared, the [2-3-1] General Order has played 57.9% of the time. When we look at all 317 drawings, this shrinks to 3.47% of the time.

The 0 2 3 0 0 1 Specific Order made its fourth appearance. Given that there have been 11 drawings where the [2-3-1] General Order has appeared, the 0 2 3 0 0 1 Specific Order has played 36.4% of the time. Looking at the 19 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern, this becomes 21.1% of the time. Finally, when taking all 317 drawings into account, the 0 2 3 0 0 1 Specific Order has played 1.26% of the time. We last saw this Specific Order earlier this year in the May 3rd, 2016 drawing.

Finally, we come to the repeating Three-Number Combination of 31, 39, and 45. To see when this Combination first played, we need to go back to the January 30th, 2015 drawing.

As November pushes onward and things get a bit wilder in the “real world”, will Mega Millions continue to partake in its own madness, or will it mellow out?

End-of-Month Blowout

Like the month of October itself, Lotto Texas and Powerball didn’t cool down much Saturday night. The October 29th drawings provided some interesting developments to mark the end of the month, one such development being how the repeating Four-Number Combinations in Lotto Texas played out. For those of you who were awaiting the next installment of the Powerball Pattern Tango, that has been postponed for the time being.

Lotto Texas

We were treated to the {2-2-2} Pattern, provided to us by winning numbers 11, 18, 20, 28, 41, and 42.

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

With 190 appearances to date, the {2-2-2} Pattern is currently the second-most commonly played Pattern in Lotto Texas. The {2-2-2} Pattern is a special one; not only is it a Pattern, its corresponding Specific Order is also 2 2 2.  We here at Lottery Binge like to call this scenario an Australia Play. Since we got ourselves here an Australia Play, both the {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order have played in 6.47% of the 1390 Lotto Texas drawings. The last time we saw an Australia Play was a little over a couple of months ago in the August 17th drawing.

We saw two Four-Number Combinations repeat. The first one was 20, 28, 41, and 42, which made its debut back in the August 22nd, 2009 drawing.

The second Combination, 11, 20, 28, and 42 has an interesting history behind it. This combination has played not once, but twice before! The Four-Number Combination 11, 20, 28, and 42 played for the first time on June 3rd, 2006, and again on March 27th, 2010.

Powerball

In lieu of the Powerball Pattern Tango, we saw the 18th appearance of the {3-1-1-1} Pattern. The winning numbers were 19, 20, 21, 42, 48, and PB 23.

Like its Lotto Texas friend {2-2-2}, the {3-1-1-1} is currently the second-most commonly seen Powerball Pattern. Unlike its friend, {3-1-1-1} is not capable of being an Australia Play. Out of the 112 Powerball drawings, the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has played 16.1% of the time. Prior to Saturday’s drawing, the {3-1-1-1} Pattern previously played two weeks ago in the October 15th drawing.

The [3-1-1-1] General Order made its fourth appearance, its first since the June 4th, 2016 drawing. Out of the 18 drawings where {3-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern, the [3-1-1-1] General Order has played 22.2% of the time. This becomes 3.57% when we look at all 112 drawings.

Finally, we come to the debut of the 0 3 1 1 0 1 Specific Order. So far, it has appeared in 25% of the four drawings where [3-1-1-1] was the General Order of the evening. When we look at the 18 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern played, the 0 3 1 1 0 1 Specific Order has played 5.56% of the time. This becomes 0.89% when we look at all 112 drawings.

As we shift gears to November, will Lotto Texas and Powerball continue their hot streak, or will there be a cool down?

For the Love of Three

The number three was quite prominent on October 28th. On one hand, Game 3 of the World Series ended with the Indians leading 2-1. On the other, Mega Millions saw a three-peat of its most commonly played Pattern, and the repeat appearances of three Three-Number Combinations. Just like we saw on October 21st, “3” is a powerful number.

Unlike the {2-1-1-1-1} in Powerball, this {2-1-1-1-1} is in no danger of being overtaken by another Pattern. The three-peat was thanks to winning numbers 7, 38, 46, 57, 66, and MB 2.

The {2-1-1-1-1} has now made 127 appearances. Given that there have been 316 drawings, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has now played 40.2% of the time. Prior to Friday’s drawing, we last saw this Pattern in the October 25th and October 21st drawings.

The [1-1-2-1-1] General Order made its 28th appearance, its first since the May 10th, 2016 drawing. Out of the 127 drawings where the winning Pattern was {2-1-1-1-1}, this General Order has played approximately 22% of the time. When looking at all 316 drawings, this becomes 8.86% of the time.

We now come to the 1 0 1 2 1 1 Specific Order, which has now appeared in 7 drawings. Given the 28 drawings where the General Order of the evening was [1-1-2-1-1], the 1 0 1 2 1 1 Specific Order has played 25% of the time. As we move on to the 127 drawings where the winning Pattern was {2-1-1-1-1}, this Specific Order has played 5.51% of the time. This shrinks to 2.22% when looking at all 316 drawings. Prior to Friday’s drawing, we last saw the 1 0 1 2 1 1 Specific Order in the February 9th, 2016 drawing.

Finally, we come to the Three-Number Combinations. We saw the following Combinations make their second appearance:

  • 7, 38, and 46 which first played June 13th, 2014
  • 38, 66, and MB 2 which first played May 29th, 2015
  • 7, 46 and 66 which first played August 23rd, 2016.

What will November have in store for Mega Millions? Will rarely-seen Patterns get to play? Will the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern go for a four-peat?

 

All Tied Up

The October 26th drawing for Lotto Texas was mellow. No Australia Play, no Four or Five-Number Combos that first played back when VHS tapes still existed. Powerball had other ideas. As Chicago beat Cleveland in Game 2 to tie up the World Series, the Pattern Tango commenced once again.

Lotto Texas

There is no doubt that the {3-2-1} Pattern is without equal. With 723 appearances, it is far and away the most commonly seen Pattern. This gargantuan lead was solidified by winning numbers 5, 21, 24, 32, 37, and 39.

Winning Texas Lotto Numbers from lotterytrend.com.

How big is this lead? Its nearest competitor, {2-2-2}, comes in with 189 appearances. Given that there have been 1389 Lotto Texas drawings to date, the {3-2-1} Pattern has played 52.1% of the time. We last saw the {3-2-1} Pattern a week ago in the October 19th drawing.

The 1 3 2 Specific Order made its 106th appearance in Wednesday’s drawing. This Specific Order was last seen a couple of months ago in the August 24th drawing. Out of the 723 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern, the 1 3 2 Specific Order has played 14.7% of the time. When looking at all 1389 Lotto Texas drawings, this becomes 7.63% of the time.

Powerball

Once again, we have become ensnared in another edition of the Powerball Pattern Tango. Wednesday’s drawing saw the 39th appearance of the {2-2-1-1} Pattern, tying with the {2-1-1-1-1}. This time, the {2-2-1-1} Pattern was thanks to numbers 2, 3, 16, 48, 56, and PB 24.

Now that there have been 111 drawings, the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has played 35.1% of the time. To see when this Pattern previously played, we’ll need to go back to the beginning of the month. October 1st, to be precise.

October 1st is also the last time we saw the [2-1-2-1] General Order appear prior to Wednesday’s drawing. With 12 appearances, and 39 drawings where {2-2-1-1} was the winning Pattern, the [2-1-2-1] General Order has played 30.8% of the time. This shrinks to 10.8% when we look at all 111 drawings.

The 2 1 0 2 0 1 Specific Order made its second appearance last night. Out of the 12 drawings where [2-1-2-1] was the General Order, the 2 1 0 2 0 1 Specific Order has played 16.67% of the time. When we look at the 39 drawings where {2-2-1-1} was the winning Pattern, this shrinks to 5.13% of the time. Finally, this becomes 1.80% when taking all 111 Powerball drawings into account.

As the World Series continues, and with last minute Halloween preparations under way, what will Saturday have in store for Lottery Trend Country? Will the {2-2-1-1} be bold enough to steal away the title of Most Commonly Seen Pattern from {2-1-1-1-1}? Will a rarely-seen Pattern play in Lotto Texas?

Mega Millions and the World Series Cooldown

For all of you who are fans of Major League Baseball (MLB), Tuesday was Game 1 of the World Series. For those of you who happen to play Mega Millions, it was a more relaxed atmosphere, at least compared to the last four drawings. No rare Patterns, no repeating Three-Number Combinations, not even an Australia Play to be had. Whether this was so the Indians’ victory over the Cubs wouldn’t be overshadowed, we can’t say.

What we can say with confidence is that the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern made an encore appearance in the October 25th drawing. This was made possible by winning numbers 8, 9, 24, 49, 67, and MB 13.

Winning Mega Millions numbers from lotterytrend-megamillions.com.
Winning Mega Millions numbers from lotterytrend-megamillions.com.

With 126 appearances, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has an iron grip on the title of Most Commonly Played Pattern. Out of the 315 Mega Millions drawings thus far, this Pattern has played 40% of the time. Recall (or if you just don’t feel like clicking that link) that the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern previously played in this past Friday’s drawing.

We’ll need to go back to the September 13th, 2016 drawing to see when the [2-1-1-1-1] General Order previously played. As of Tuesday, this General Order has now appeared in 32 drawings. Out of the 126 drawings with {2-1-1-1-1} as the winning Pattern, the [2-1-1-1-1] General Order has played 25.4% of the time. Taking all 315 drawings into account, this becomes 10.2%.

No mellow night is complete without a rundown of the Specific Order! The 2 1 0 1 1 1 Specific Order made its 9th appearance, its first since July 12th, 2016. In the 32 drawings where [2-1-1-1-1] appeared, this Specific Order has played 28.125% of the time. When we look at the 126 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern won, this becomes 7.14%. Finally, when taking all 315 drawings into account, the 2 1 0 1 1 1 Specific Order has played approximately 2.86% of the time.

As the World Series continues onward and everyone scrambles to get ready for Halloween, there’s one important question. Will Mega Millions lay low, or will it attempt to upstage the World Series?

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.

Winning Texas Lotto numbers from lotterytrend.com.
Winning Texas Lotto numbers from lotterytrend.com.

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.
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}?

There Be the Power of Three

No, it’s not International Talk Like a Pirate Day (missed it by a month). We saw this humble number appear in subtle, and not so subtle ways, in the October 21st Mega Millions drawing.

The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern made its 125th appearance, continuing its reign as the Most Commonly Seen Pattern. The numbers 12, 43, 44, 48, 62, and MB 3 made that possible.

Winning Mega Millions numbers from lotterytrend-megamillions.com.
Winning Mega Millions numbers from lotterytrend-megamillions.com.

Out of the 314 drawings so far, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has played 39.8% of the time. We last saw this Pattern play a week ago in the October 14th drawing.

The [1-2-1-1-1] General Order has now appeared in 38 drawings. Given the 125 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} is the Pattern of the evening, the [1-2-1-1-1] General Order has played 30.4% of the time. When we look at all 314 Mega Millions drawings to date, this becomes 12.1%. This General Order was last seen two weeks ago in the October 7th drawing.

Next, we come to the 1 0 2 1 1 1 Specific Order, now having played seven times. In the 38 drawings where [1-2-1-1-1] was the General Order, the 1 0 2 1 1 1 Specific Order has played 18.4% of the time. Looking to the 125 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the Pattern, the 1 0 2 1 1 1 Specific Order has played 5.6% of the time. Finally, this becomes 2.23% when we look at all 314 drawings.  We last saw this Specific Order during the Rio Olympic Games: August 12th, 2016.

Finally, there were three Three-Number Combinations that made an encore:

  • 43, 66, MB 3, which first played April 29th, 2014
  • 12, 44, MB 3, which first played December 3rd, 2013, and
  • 12, 44, 66, which first played August 9th, 2016

Mega Millions currently shows no signs of slowing down. Will this energetic streak continue as we head into the final (full) week?
