Nice and Toasty

With a big temperature cool-down making its way through Lottery Trend Country, Lotto Texas and Powerball played it safe on November 16, 2016. How safe? They played so safe that they wrapped themselves up in the blanket of familiar plays. By “familiar” we mean “Patterns that we saw just last week.”

We saw the 118th appearance of the {3-3} Pattern thanks to winning numbers 4, 5, 7, 37, 43, and 51.

As of Wednesday, the {3-3} Pattern has played in 8.46% of the 1395 Lotto Texas drawings. We saw this Pattern last week in the November 9, 2016 drawing.

The 3 0 3 Specific Order made its 41st appearance. Like the {3-3} Pattern, it too was last seen on November 9th. This Specific Order has played in 34.7% of the 118 drawings where the {3-3} Pattern appeared, and has played in 2.94% of all drawings.


Powerball saw an encore appearance of the {3-1-1-1} Pattern. The winning numbers were 28, 41, 61, 63, 65, and PB7.

Now with 20 appearances, the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has played in 17.1% of the 117 Powerball drawings.

This gave way to the [1-1-3-1] General Order making its eighth appearance, its first since the October 15, 2016 drawing. The [1-1-3-1] General Order has now appeared in 40% of the 20 drawings where {3-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern, and approximately 6.84% of all 117 drawings.

We wrap up our coverage with the 0 1 1 0 3 1 Specific Order. Making its second appearance, this Specific Order has now appeared in 25% of the eight drawings the [1-1-3-1] General Order has played. When looking at the 20 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has played, this becomes 10%. This becomes 1.71% when looking at all 117 drawings. The 0 1 1 0 3 1 Specific Order made its debut in the February 24, 2016 drawing.

Will Lotto Texas and Powerball continue to stay in their cool-down phase or will they warm up as the holiday season fast approaches?
