Lotto Texas and Powerball Saturday Night Combo Mambo

Saturday’s drawings for Lotto Texas and Powerball ended the week with a bang. The {3-2-1} Pattern streak in Lotto Texas had been broken and Powerball saw an Australia Play encore!

Instead of the {3-2-1} Pattern that we saw for five consecutive plays, these numbers followed the {4-2} Pattern. Of the 1360 Lotto Texas drawings to date, the {4-2} Pattern has played 146 times, or 10.7% of the time. The last time we saw this Pattern play was back on May 25th, 2016.

The {4-2} Pattern broke down into the 4 0 2 Specific Order, which prior to Saturday’s drawing hadn’t played since March 30th, 2016. As of Saturday’s drawing, the 4 0 2 Specific Order has now played 20 times. Out of the 146 Lotto Texas drawings in which {4-2} has played, the 4 0 2 Specific Order has appeared 13.7% of the time. When we take all 1360 Lotto Texas drawings into account, this Specific Order has played only 1.47% of the time.

We also saw the appearance of three Four-Number Combinations, each having played twice. This is the first time our blog has covered such an occurrence! The three Four-Number Combinations were as follows:

These numbers gave way to the {1-1-1-1-1-1} Pattern, which in fact played July 13th, 2016 (this past Wednesday). Given the {1-1-1-1-1-1} Pattern, we also saw the [1-1-1-1-1-1] General Order and the 1 1 1 1 1 1 Specific Order. This consecutive Australia Play brings the total number of drawings for the Pattern, General Order, and Specific Order up to 10. With 82 Powerball drawings to date, all three have played 12.2% of the time.

Powerball also saw some action with previously played Combinations. We saw two Three-Number Combinations make a second appearance. These Three-Number Combinations were

  • 40, 50, and 62, which first played February 10th, 2016.
  • 11, 50, and 62, which first played March 12th, 2016.

Looking ahead to next week, will the {4-2} Pattern create its own streak? Will Powerball see an Australia Play three-peat?
