September Warm-Up

After a quiet Saturday, Lotto Texas and Powerball were fired up in Wednesday’s drawings. Lotto Texas saw a {3-2-1} three-peat and more. On the Powerball side of things, the {2-2-1-1} Pattern called itself playing catch-up.

Now with its 718th appearance, the {3-2-1} Pattern continues its rock-solid hold on Most Commonly Played Pattern. With 1375 drawings to date, the {3-2-1} Pattern has now played 52.2% of the time.

The Specific Order of the evening was 2 3 1, making its first appearance since July 20th. With its 118th appearance, and given the 718 appearances of the {3-2-1} Pattern, the 2 3 1 Specific Order has played 16.4% of the time. Taking all 1375 drawings into account, this becomes 8.58% of the time.

Now it gets a little more interesting. We saw a Four-Number Combination make an appearance for the first time in ten years! This Combination was brought to us by 12, 28, 33, and 40.

As football kicks it into high gear this weekend, will Lotto Texas see a {3-2-1} four-peat? Will the {2-2-1-1} Pattern continue to play catch-up and dethrone the {2-1-1-1-1} in Powerball?
