Takin’ a Chill Pill

Compared to the past few lottery drawings, the October 12th drawings for Lotto Texas and Powerball were peaceful. There were no throwbacks to the dial-up days and the Pattern Tango was absent for another night. Even in a state of serenity, we saw a replay (of sorts) in Lotto Texas and a repeat in Powerball.

Lotto Texas

Wednesday’s winning numbers were 14, 33, 38, 39, 47, and 52.

The {4-1-1} Pattern made its 154th appearance, its first since the September 24th drawing a few weeks ago. Out of the 1385 Lotto Texas drawings to date, the {4-1-1} Pattern has now played 11.1% of the time.

This hint of September carried over to the 1 1 4 Specific Order, which also made its last appearance in the September 24th drawing. Now having appeared 52 times, it has played in 33.8% of the 154 drawings that have {4-1-1} as the winning Pattern. Taking all 1385 drawings into account, the 1 1 4 Specific Order has played 3.75% of the time.

Powerball

Like Lotto Texas, Powerball’s winning Pattern isn’t one that commonly seen. The {3-1-1-1} Pattern made its 16th appearance with winning numbers 16, 30, 34, 37, 44, and PB 16.

Given that there have now been 107 drawings, the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has played 14.95% of the time. The {3-1-1-1} in fact played in this past Saturday’s drawing, making this a repeat. Not too shabby!

The [1-3-1-1] General Order made its 7th appearance, its first since the July 30th, 2016 drawing. Out of the 16 drawings that have {3-1-1-1} as the winning Pattern, the [1-3-1-1] General Order has played 43.75% of the time, and 6.54% when looking at all 107 drawings.

Powerball also surprised us with the debut of the 0 1 3 1 0 1 Specific Order. With that said, it has appeared in 14.285% of the 7 drawings that have [1-3-1-1] as the General Order. When looking at the 16 drawings where {3-1-1-1} is the winning Pattern, the 0 1 3 1 0 1 Specific Order has played 6.25%. This shrinks to 0.93% when looking at all 107 drawings.

Even when taking it easy, Lotto Texas and Powerball are full of surprises! Will Saturday’s drawing be as peaceful as this one, or will it be a blowout?
