Smooth Lotto Texas and Shooting Star Powerball

Lotto Texas and Powerball flipped the script Saturday night. Unlike what we saw in the previous two drawings, Lotto Texas had a play that was a bit more down-to-earth. Meanwhile, a Powerball Pattern played catch-up.

Lotto Texas

The winning numbers for the August 6th, 2016 Lotto Texas drawing were 9, 18, 19, 40, 41, and 45.

These numbers followed the {3-2-1} Pattern, which, with its 713th appearance, continues to be far and away the most commonly seen Lotto Texas Pattern. With 1366 drawings to date, the {3-2-1} Pattern has played 52.2% of the time. Prior to Saturday’s drawing, we last saw this Pattern on July 20th, 2016.

The {3-2-1} Pattern gave way to the 106th appearance of the 2 1 3 Specific Order, its first since June 29th, 2016. The 2 1 3 Specific Order has now appeared 14.9% of the time (106/713) when the {3-2-1} Pattern played, and 7.76% of the time when we look at all 1366 Lotto Texas drawings.

Saturday’s drawing also gave us two Four-Number Combinations:

  • 18, 40, 41, and 45, which first played March 9th, 2016,

and

  • 9, 19, 41, and 45, which first played January 23rd, 2016.

While it looks like Lotto Texas took a more familiar approach, Powerball continues to aim high.

Once again, the {2-2-1-1} Pattern played, having just appeared in the August 3rd, 2016 Powerball drawing! Now with 31 appearances, the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared in 31 out of 88 drawings, or 35.2% of the time.

The {2-2-1-1} Pattern breaks down into a [1-2-2-1] General Order this time, the first since July 27th, 2016. With 13 appearances, the [1-2-2-1] General Order has played 41.9% of the time when we look at the 31 times in which the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has played, and 14.8% of the time when all 88 Powerball drawings are taken into account.

Finally, we saw the 0 1 2 2 0 1 Specific Order play for the first time since October 7th, 2015. Now having played twice, the 0 1 2 2 0 1 Specific Order’s stats break down as follows:

  • 15.4% of the time (2/13) the [1-2-2-1] General Order has played
  • 6.45% of the time (2/31) the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has played

and

  • 2.27% of the time (2/88) when all Powerball drawings are taken into account.

As we look ahead to next week, will the {2-2-1-1} Powerball Pattern go for a three-peat? Will Lotto Texas get cozy with the {3-2-1} Pattern?
