The Specific Order was 1 3 2, which previously played on May 7th, 2016.

We ended the previous week with June loosening its grip on Lotto Texas and Powerball. Is this only temporary, or will plays of Junes past come back and dominate? Will the Lotto Texas {3-2-1} Pattern make a fifth consecutive appearance, and will the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern see a three-peat?

The Ghosts of Junes Past

Last night was a big one for Mega Millions. Someone in Indiana finally won that big jackpot (Congratulations!) and June continues to bust out all over.

What do next week’s Mega Millions drawings have in store?

The June Is Strong With These Two

Just like we saw with Mega Millions on Tuesday, the Lotto Texas and Powerball drawings were covered in June. Not just any June, but this past June. We also saw a Lotto Texas three-peat!

Lotto Texas

The winning numbers for the July 6th, 2016 Lotto Texas drawing were 2, 3, 17, 35, 41, and 44.

The Specific Order was a 3 1 2, which last appeared in the June 22nd, 2016 drawing. The 3 1 2 Specific Order has now appeared in 127 of the 709 drawings, or 17.9% of the time in which the {3-2-1} Pattern has played. If we were to take all 1357 Lotto Texas drawings into account, then the 3 1 2 Specific Order has appeared in about 9.4% of the drawings.

Looks like Lotto Texas had one foot in June, and one foot in July.

 

Powerball

Powerball’s winning numbers for July 6th, 2016 were as follows: 2, 24, 31, 57, 66, and PB 18.

These numbers played in the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern, and has now appeared in 30 out of 79, or about 38%, of Powerball drawings. Prior to the July 6th, drawing, this Pattern played on June 8th, 2016.

The General Order of the night was [1-1-1-2-1], and as of the July 6th drawing has appeared in 13 out of the 30 drawings, or 43.3% of the time, in which the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has played. If we take all 79 Powerball drawings into account, then the [1-1-1-2-1] has appeared 16.5% of the time. Just like the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern, this also appeared in the June 8th Powerball drawing.

Last, but certainly not least, we have the Specific Order. The July 6th numbers followed the 1 1 1 0 2 1 Specific Order which last played…get ready for this…June 8th, 2016! Not only did Powerball embrace the June, it embraced June 8th all around.

With that said, the 1 1 1 0 2 1 Specific Order has now appeared in 4 out of the 13 drawings in which the [1-1-1-2-1] General Order has played. That’s about 30.8%. However, if we were to take all 79 Powerball drawings into account, the statistic would be 5.1%.

Even though June didn’t totally dominate, it had a pretty strong hold. What will Saturday’s Lotto Texas and Powerball drawings have in store?

June Is Busting Out All Over!

Last night’s Mega Millions really brought out the post-Fourth of July fireworks. We saw repeats for the Pattern, General Order, and Specific Order, but more importantly, all of them had played just last month! Although the calendar says we’ve started a new month, June decided to stick around a bit longer.

The winning Mega Millions numbers for July 5th, 2016 are 29, 46, 53, 64, 73, and MB 10.

These numbers played in the {2-2-1-1} Pattern, which has now played 91 times out of 283, or 32.2%. In fact, this Pattern last played nearly two weeks ago on June 24th, 2016.

The {2-2-1-1} Pattern gave way to the [1-2-2-1] General Order, which as of last night’s drawing, has appeared in 23 of the 91 Mega Millions drawings in which the {2-2-1-1} pattern has played. That brings this General Order’s stats up to 25.3%. If we take all 283 Mega Millions drawings into account, the [1-2-2-1] General Order has appeared in 8.13% of the plays. Prior to last night’s drawing, the [1-2-2-1] made a previous appearance on June 7th, 2016.

We also saw the 0 1 0 2 2 1 Specific Order make its third appearance. When was its second appearance, you wonder? Are you ready for this?

June 7th, 2016.

Out of the 23 drawings in which the [1-2-2-1] General Order has appeared, the stats for the 0 1 0 2 2 1 Specific Order have gone up to 13%. Taking into account the 91 drawings in which the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has played, this Specific Order has played 3.3% of the time. Taking it even further, if all 283 Mega Millions drawings to date are taken into account, this Specific Order has appeared in 1.1% of them.

And it’s not over yet.

Last night’s Mega Millions saw the appearance of a Four-Number Combination in the form of 29, 46, 64, and MB 10.

Lotto Texas and Powerball Wednesday Night Callbacks

June 29th’s Lotto Texas and Powerball drawings didn’t see Australia Plays or throwbacks to Four-Number (Lotto Texas) or Three-Number (Powerball) Combinations last seen several years ago. What we did see was a callback to Patterns seen just last week.

What will Lotto Texas and Powerball have in store for us on Saturday? Will we see pre-Fourth of July fireworks?

And {2-1-1-1-1} Comes Out of the Shadows

For those of you who read our blog last week and were hoping for a three-peat of the {2-2-1-1} Pattern, we’re here to tell you that it did not make an appearance last night. What we did see was fascinating in its own right.

The winning Mega Millions numbers for June 28th, 2016 were 15, 17, 20, 35, 55, and MB7.

Hmm. Looks like the winning Pattern and the winning General Order we saw last night were the most common of their types. Did this also hold true for the Specific Order?

Looks like the 1 2 1 1 0 1 Specific Order made an appearance, its first since April 22nd, 2016. This Specific Order has now appeared in 11 out of the 29 drawings the [1-2-1-1-1] General Order has appeared in, or 37.9%.

Mambos with Combos and the Australia Play Returns to Powerball

Just like Australia is both a country and a continent, the {1-1-1-1-1-1} Pattern is also a Specific Order. For those of you who have just started to check out our fair blog, we like to call such plays Australia Plays.

For those of you who have just started checking out this blog, and you’re wondering what the heck we just mentioned, the {2-2-1-1} Pattern was the winner yet again, having last played June 21st, 2016.
