Mambo with Four-Number Combos and 2-1-1-1-1

For the past couple of blog posts, we mentioned how everything repeats given enough time. Well, we’re here to tell you that no Patterns or Orders carried over from last week for either the Texas Lotto or Powerball. The repeats came from the appearance of two Four-Number Combinations in Wednesday’s Lotto Texas drawing. Additionally, we saw the appearance of different Patterns and Orders for both Lotto Texas and Powerball.

Lotto Texas

The winning numbers for June 8th, 2016 were as follows: 2, 13, 22, 35, 36, and 39.

The winning Pattern was a {3-2-1}, which is actually the most commonly played Pattern by a mile, or kilometer for our non-American readers out there. This has played 704 times out of 1349 so far, which means it has played approximately 52.19% of the time. The Specific Order was a 2 3 1, which has only played 115 times out 1349, or 8.52%. Remember that with Lotto Texas, there are no General Orders like Powerball or Mega Millions, just Specific Orders.

As we hinted at earlier, there were two Four-Number Combinations that played. The Four-Number Combination of 13, 35, 36, 39 last played nearly ten years ago on July 5th, 2006.

The other Four-Number Combination of 2, 22, 35, 36 actually played a few months back on October 17th, 2015.

Although a Pattern can appear again in successive drawings, a Four-Number Combination may not play again for months, or even years.

Powerball

Powerball’s winning numbers were 12, 25, 37, 60, 69, and PB 20.

This was a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern, which, as it turns out, is the most commonly played Pattern for Powerball so far. As of Wednesday, this has played 29 times out of 71, or 40.85%. Given the {2-1-1-1} Pattern, the following General Orders are possible:

[1-1-1-2-1]

[1-1-2-1-1]

[1-2-1-1-1]

[2-1-1-1-1]

The General Order [1-1-1-2-1] played, bringing it to a total of 12 times out of 71, or 16.9%. To date, this has been the most commonly played General Order for this Pattern. The Specific Order 1 1 1 0 2 1 has played 3 times out of 12, putting it at a solid 25%.

As we await the results of Saturday’s drawings, we just gotta wonder. Will we see a Four-Number Combo make an appearance in Lotto Texas after a long absence? Will Powerball be like its sister Mega Millions and see a Pattern repeat, or will an entirely new one play?
