Lotto Texas and Powerball’s Golden Opportunity

Playing the lottery is like a game of cat-and-mouse. Players are after the big bucks, and the lottery itself is avoiding capture for as long as possible. Although no one would turn their nose up at $50 million, just about everyone would salivate at the potential to win $200 million or even $1 billion!

A billion-dollar jackpot is a ways off. In any case, fortune smiled upon Lotto Texas and Powerball Wednesday night. That good fortune, of course, was not getting caught! This opened a golden opportunity to boost their jackpots and getting the players psyched up to try again. Lotto Texas clocked in at $8.75 million and Powerball at $199 million.

Will Saturday night see the return of the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern in Powerball, and could either lottery see a playback?

The Great Double Comeback

Special thanks to guest blogger Romulun Harris for filling in on short notice!

We’ll cut right to the chase: The July 27, 2021 Mega Millions drawing produced a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern encore. That in and of itself wasn’t too out of the ordinary. What made this encore noteworthy was that the Pattern didn’t go it alone. No, there wasn’t a playback, but a General Order, [1-2-1-1-1] in this case, joined in on the encore frenzy. No records were shattered, but the Pattern and General Order gave it their all and pushed the jackpot to $166 million.

General Lottery Analysis

The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern encore was made possible by 2, 35, 36, 54, 64 and MB 11. This Pattern has now played 299 times.

Mega Millions’ Weekend Opening Ceremony

After having been delayed for a year, the 2020 Tokyo Olympics kicked off July 23, 2021. Even without a massive gathering of spectators, the opening ceremony was still a sight to behold. The event appeared low-key on the surface, but under the surface was energy and quirkiness.

Mega Millions took a similar approach Friday night. Although the drawing didn’t come with an Australia Play encore, the jackpot rose all the same! More specifically, it rose to $153 million.

General Lottery Analysis

The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern made its 298th appearance with 13, 17, 19, 40, 69 and MB 17.

Caught Up in the Whirlwind

The unofficial motto of the United States Postal Service (USPS) boils down to this: Nothing can keep a good postal worker down. Well, almost nothing. Postal workers are human after all and like any human, they fall prey to illness, injury, and let’s not forget human error. Deliveries can and do get delayed if Mother Nature doesn’t play nice.

Lotteries are immune to the things that plague humans. Powerball laughs in the face of sick days, and along with its “siblings” Lotto Texas and Mega Millions, keeps on ticking in the face of floods and power outages. Lotteries, see, are often the ones stirring up the trouble, what with Pattern streaks, playbacks, and so forth. While these were absent July 21, 2021, there was a Pattern encore, an important steppingstone in the creation of said Pattern streaks. Both Lotto Texas and Powerball saw their respective jackpots climb to $8.25 million and $174 million.

Meditating Mega Millions

With all the chaos and confusion that has gripped the world, especially for the past year-and-a-half, one thing still manages to hold strong. The Tokyo Olympics will officially start Friday, even with thousands (more like millions) calling for the ordeal to be cancelled altogether. That Virus is still raging, and with the absence of massive crowds of spectators, not to mentions athletes falling ill, this grand sporting event just won’t be the same this year.

Mega Millions had a knack for reading the room Tuesday night. A {2-2-1-1} Pattern three-peat wasn’t featured. Instead, Mega Millions took the time to reflect on a different Pattern. This lottery not only boosted its inner well-being, but its jackpot. The prize grew to $138 million.

July 20, 2021 saw the Australia Play make its 21st appearance with winning numbers 10, 26, 30, 52, 57 and MB 10.

Drawings of Olympian Proportions

The time has come once more. In a few days, the Summer Olympics will be broadcasted live from Tokyo. As we humans find ourselves embroiled in controversy concerning the games, Lotto Texas and Powerball engaged in something scandalous themselves. July 17, 2021 was a night abound with mass outpourings of repeating Three and Four-Number Combinations. One even had enough room for a similar spread! To add on to the spectacle, the jackpots rose to $8 million and $161 million, respectively.

Lotto Texas

With winning numbers 1, 2, 5, 36, 38 and 43, the {3-2-1} Pattern made its 992nd appearance.

Mega Millions’ Matter of Repetition

Some things bear repeating. It’s how we as humans tend to remember everything from our times tables to annoying advertisements.

Repetition in the lottery world, in its most basic form, is a Pattern encore. Sometimes that’s as far as it goes, but the potential for a Pattern streak is always there. Now, it’s premature to say that the {2-2-1-1} Pattern encore of July 16, 2021 will lead up to a Pattern streak, but it did help propel the Mega Millions jackpot to $128 million.

The Mid-Week, Mid-Month Playback Shuffle

July 14th was a national holiday – in France. It was on that date in 1789 that revolutionaries stormed a medieval armory/political prison known as the Bastille. A symbol of the tyrannical monarchy, the storming triggered the start of the French Revolution. As to be expected, Bastille Day, or Fête Nationale (“National Celebration”)/Le 14 Juillet (“The 14th of July”), is a grand occasion. Military parades, concerts, and of course, fireworks are in order.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the Atlantic, the celebrations have since ended and most everyone has settled into a more “normal” pattern. Lotto Texas and Powerball appeared to follow suit. However, a closer look at the results from July 14, 2021 indicated otherwise. For starters, Lotto Texas saw a playback, and Powerball came close. Throw in the respective jackpots rising to $7.75 million and $150 million, Wednesday night was far from “normal”. In fact, those lotteries were downright festive!

Mega Millions’ Sense and Civility

Last time in Mega Millions, the {3-1-1-1} Pattern was on the verge of a Pattern streak. The momentum of the Fourth of July holiday certainly helped! To put it another way, once the holiday (week) ended, Mega Millions threw out the cans and dressed properly. Most everyone has gone back to work, and “Back to School!” sales started to rear their heads.

If anything carried over from the previous week, it was the rising jackpot. With no one selecting the six winning numbers, the prize jumped to $117 million.
