Lotto Texas {4-1-1} Encore and Powerball’s Australia Play

As we’ve said before, everything repeats given enough time, and repetition is truly a lottery’s best friend. For Lotto Texas, it took two weeks for a Pattern and a Specific Order to make an encore appearance. Not only that, it saw the appearance of another Four-Number Combination. Even Powerball saw something interesting in the Pattern that played. We’ll get to that a bit later.

These numbers played in a {4-1-1} Pattern which, as we hinted at in the introduction, played just two weeks ago on June 4th, 2016. The {4-1-1} Pattern has now played 151 times out of 1352 drawings, putting it at 11.17%. This Pattern gave us the 1 4 1 Specific Order, which also played on June 4th, 2016. Of the 151 times the {4-1-1-} Pattern has played, the 1 4 1 Specific Order has now played 54 times, or 35.76%. To date, this is the most commonly played Specific Order for the {4-1-1} Pattern.

For those of you keeping an eye out for Four-Number Combos, we saw one play last night in the form of 2, 19, 28, and 51, as seen in the red box below.

Prior to the June 18th 2016 drawing, this Four-Number Combo last played July 20th 2011. This was the year that social media really took off. Hard to believe that it was just a near five years ago, isn’t it?


Powerball saw an “Australia Play”. That is to say, we saw the winning Pattern and the winning Specific Order be the same, much like Australia is a country and a continent. We saw one of these in the June 11th, 2016 Lotto Texas drawing.

The winning numbers for Powerball were 2, 23, 41, 53, 63, and PB11.

These numbers were in a {1-1-1-1-1-1} Pattern, which has now played in 7 out of 74 drawings, or 9.46%. As such, the only General Order allowed is [1-1-1-1-1-1] and the only Specific Order allowed is 1 1 1 1 1 1.

Prior to the June 18th drawing, this Australia Play was last seen on April 20th, 2016.

Will we see more Four-Number Combos in Lotto Texas or will the rarely seen Five-Number Combo make a debut? Will Powerball go back to what it knows and play a more commonly seen winning Pattern?
