The Saturday Night Combination Scene

As people are busy living it up on Saturday nights, Lotto Texas and Powerball go about “combinationing”. The act of “combinationing” involves presenting repeating Three or Four-Number Combinations to the world. As of late, Saturday nights have been a boon for the Combination scene, and the October 1, 2022 scene was poppin’!  

Both lotteries got in on the combination scene Saturday night. Would you believe that it was Lotto Texas that had the biggest display? This was in addition to a Pattern encore that pushed the jackpot to $6.5 million. Powerball was no slouch, either. A lack of a Pattern encore was no deterrent for the jackpot rising to $336 million.

Five Number Combination

The real reason for Lotto Texas’s grand Combination display was the appearance of a repeating Five-Number Combination. The Combination 14, 19, 20, 32 and 52 debuted February 21, 2022. That was seven months ago!

Four-Number Combinations

Of course, that repeating Five-Number Combination bore five repeating Four-Number Combinations. Two of these had the audacity to play twice before:

  • 19, 20, 32, 52 (Debuted February 21, 2022)
  • 14, 20, 32, 52 (Debuted February 6, 2002 and previously played February 21, 2022)

A {2-2-1-1} Kind of Finish

In Mega Millions, the last week of September belonged to the {2-2-1-1} Pattern. This mini streak began the previous Friday. From then on, it showed up in this past Tuesday’s drawing and then once more September 30, 2022. The {2-2-1-1} Pattern three-peat also pushed the jackpot to $380 million.

Will Mega Millions stick with the {2-2-1-1} Pattern Tuesday night, or will a different Pattern have a shot?

Just Can’t Stop at One (or Two)

Some snacks are notoriously addictive. Take Oreos for instance. You rip open the top of the pack and take one out. Then, you think, “Why stop there?” You take another, then another, and soon you find that you’ve eaten a lot of Oreos! Thankfully, lottery Patterns are calorie-free (and inedible to boot). However, like Oreos, some Patterns are just so good that they can’t be played just once.

September 28, 2022 was a night of third helpings. Powerball just couldn’t get enough of the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern and brought it back for a third night! The jackpot pushed onward to $322 million. Lotto Texas kept things simple and clean, and raised the jackpot to $6.25 million all the same.

In Friday’s post, we were wondering if the {2-2-1-1} Pattern would rule the final week of September. The Pattern encore Tuesday night gives the idea some grounding, but it’s early yet. We’ll have to see if the {2-2-1-1} Pattern is the last Pattern of September, or if Mega Millions has other ideas.

A Playback and the Four Repeats

Greetings Lotterytrend fans! Romulun Harris here. Last night on September 26, 2022, just four days after the fall season had begun, Lotto Texas experienced a playback and Powerball’s frequently played {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern appeared, resulting in a quartet of Three-Number Combination Repeats occurring. And now, the details.

Carryovers and a New Leaf

With a new season in full swing, and two lotteries at play, there were two different approaches to Saturday night’s drawings. One lottery stuck with a Pattern that was featured mid-week. Meanwhile, the other lottery thought a new Pattern was a more fitting start to the season. All things considered, Lotto Texas and Powerball were pleased as punch to see their respective jackpots grow to $5.75 million and $285 million.

A Different Pattern Falls In

Many great changes have fallen upon the world these past few weeks. The most recent change was the changing of the seasons. Fittingly, Mega Millions saw a change in the Pattern line-up Friday night. This lottery welcomed fall (or spring for y’all south of the Equator) without a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern encore. Nonetheless, the jackpot grew to an astounding $325 million.

Lottery Minds Think Alike…Until They Don’t

Lotto Texas and Powerball read each other’s minds earlier this week. On Monday night, both lotteries played host to an Australia Play. Yes, two Australia Plays in one night! Come Wednesday night, Lotto Texas and Powerball took to different strategies to boost their jackpots. One stuck with the Australia Play, and the other opted for another Pattern. Both strategies proved effective, as Lotto Texas’s jackpot settled into $5.5 million, and Powerball’s bounded to $270 million.

Gettin’ Those Combo Fixins

Humans, like all animals, need to eat. Many of us strive to eat a more well-balanced diet, but everyone has that one meal that makes us feel warm and fuzzy inside. Comfort food, or “good fixin’s” if you will. For some, it’s tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich. For others, it’s fried fish and chips (French fries for us Yanks). As for lotteries, their “good fixin’s” are common Patterns with an extra kick.

Even though Mega Millions hosted its most common Pattern Tuesday night, the results were anything but! There was an abundance of repeating Three-Number Combinations, and the jackpot reinforced its beastly status. More specifically, the jackpot rose to $301 million.

And now the details of this surprising Double-Australia Play.
