In the July 13th drawings, Lotto Texas basked in the July sun, whereas Powerball was visited by June. More specifically, Powerball was visited by this past June.

As of today, we can say that the {3-2-1} Pattern has made five, yes five consecutive appearances! The past four appearances were on June 29th, July 2nd, July 6th, and July 9th. The July 13th drawing brought the number of {3-2-1} Pattern appearances up to 711. Given the 1359 Lotto Texas drawings to date, this Pattern has played 52.3% of the time. There is no contest. The {3-2-1} Pattern continues to be far and away the most commonly seen Pattern in Lotto Texas!

The 3 2 1 Specific Order has now played 127 times, and in fact made a previous appearance in the July 2nd, 2016 drawing. Given the 711 times in which the {3-2-1} Pattern has played, this Specific Order has appeared in approximately 17.9% of these drawings. Taking all 1359 Lotto Texas drawings into account, the 3 2 1 Specific Order has played 9.35% of the time.

The July 13th, 2016 Lotto Texas drawing also saw a Four-Number Combination play in the form of 16, 27, 34,46. The first time this Combination played was back on September 18th, 2013.

These numbers followed the {1-1-1-1-1-1} Pattern, which in fact played on June 25th, 2016. The {1-1-1-1-1-1} Pattern has now appeared in 9 of 81 Powerball drawings. Given the {1-1-1-1-1-1} Pattern, we had a [1-1-1-1-1-1] General Order and a 1 1 1 1 1 1 Specific Order. Since this an Australia Play, that means the [1-1-1-1-1-1] General Order and the 1 1 1 1 1 1 Specific Order have also appeared in 9 out of 81 drawings. All three have played in 11.1% of all Powerball drawings.

As we’ve explained in previous posts, an Australia Play is a fascinating event. With Powerball, it means that the Pattern, General Order, and Specific Order are the same. Looking back on fourth grade geography (or a Google search), Australia is the only country that’s also a continent. Not only that, but Australia is the only permanently inhabited continent entirely within the Southern Hemisphere.

There was only one place where June didn’t have a grip on Powerball, and that was in the Three-Number Combination. This Combination was brought to us by 15, 29, and 10, and it first played on January 2nd, 2016.

As we look ahead to Saturday’s Lotto Texas and Powerball drawings, will Lotto Texas see a break from the {3-2-1} Pattern? Will Powerball see an Australia Play encore?
