Small Gifts

It’s that time of year again. The Christmas shopping season is upon us and Lotto Texas and Powerball each left a gift in the November 26th drawing. Powerball was generous enough to give one lucky person two gifts.

Lotto Texas

Lotto Texas’s gift was the three-peat of the {3-2-1} Pattern on Saturday. The 729th appearance of this Pattern was made possible by numbers 2, 3, 22, 25, 32, and 42.

With 729 appearances, the {3-2-1} Pattern has played in 52.1% of the 1398 Lotto Texas drawings to date. In addition to the November 23rd drawing, this Pattern also played on November 19th.

The 2 3 1 Specific Order made its 121st appearance, and has now played in 16.6% of the 729 drawings that the {3-2-1} Pattern has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 8.66% of all Lotto Texas drawings. Prior to Saturday, the 2 3 1 Specific Order also previously played in the November 23rd drawing.

Powerball

Powerball saw the 22nd appearance of the {3-1-1-1} Pattern, thanks to winning numbers 17, 19, 21, 37, 44, and PB 16.

As of Saturday, this Pattern has played in 18.3% of all 120 Powerball drawings. We last saw the {3-1-1-1} Pattern last weekend, in the November 19th drawing.

Moving on, we saw the [3-1-1-1] General Order play for the sixth time, and it also previously played in the November 19th drawing. The [3-1-1-1] General Order has now played in 27.3% of the 22 drawings that the {3-1-1-1} has played, and 5% of all Powerball drawings.

The 0 3 1 1 0 1 Specific Order made its second appearance. As of Saturday, this Specific Order has played in 33.3% of the six drawings where the [3-1-1-1] General Order played, 9.09% of the 22 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has played, and 1.67% of all Powerball drawings. The 0 3 1 1 0 1 Specific Order made its debut about a month ago, in the October 29th drawing.

Finally, we come to Powerball’s gift: the repeat of a Three-Number Combination. The Combination was 37, 44, and PB 16, which made its debut in the October 12th, 2016 drawing.

The last Lotto Texas and Powerball drawings of the month will take place this coming Wednesday (November 30th). Will November end with a bang, or will things simmer down?
