Big League Plays

Chicago beating Cleveland wasn’t the only thing that happened on November 2nd! As the Cubs and the Indians went head-to-head in a nail-biter that will be talked about for years to come, Lotto Texas saw a Four-Number Combination that debuted last decade. The Powerball Pattern Tango was put on hold once again—but things heated up with an Australia Play!

Here is the rundown for Lotto Texas and Powerball on what was truly a historic night.

Lotto Texas

The {3-2-1} remains the most commonly seen Pattern, with Wednesday’s drawing marking its 724th appearance. The winning numbers were 3, 4, 29, 31, 33, and 50.

The {3-2-1} Pattern has played in 52% of the 1391 drawings that Lotto Texas has had so far. We last saw this Pattern last week in the October 26th drawing.

The 2 3 1 Specific Order made its 119th appearance, its first since the September 7th, 2016 drawing. Out of the 724 drawings in which the {3-2-1} has appeared, the 2 3 1 Specific Order has played 16.4% of the time. This becomes 8.55% when we look at all 1391 drawings.

The Four-Number Combination 3, 4, 31, 50 made its second appearance. To see when this Combination debuted, we need to go back to January 30th, 2008.

Given that there have been 113 drawings, the {1-1-1-1-1-1} Pattern has played 10.6% of the time. The thing about Australia Plays in Powerball (and Mega Millions) is that not only is the Pattern {1-1-1-1-1-1}, it follows that the General Order is [1-1-1-1-1-1] and the Specific Order is 1 1 1 1 1 1. Just like the {1-1-1-1-1-1} Pattern, these have also played 10.6% of the time. We last saw the Australia Play in the October 19th, 2016 drawing.

Will Lotto Texas get in on the Australia Play action, or will another rarely-seen Pattern play? Will there be a definite Pattern that takes the title of Most Commonly Seen Pattern in Powerball?
