A Chilly Finish

And so we’ve come to the end of November. There was nothing explosive in either the Lotto Texas or Powerball drawings Wednesday night. However, one spark of warmth appeared in Powerball.

Lotto Texas

The {3-3} Pattern made its 119th appearance November 30, 2016, thanks to winning numbers 22, 26, 36, 45, 47, and 49.

Now that there have been 1399 Lotto Texas drawings to date, the {3-3} Pattern has now played 8.51% of the time. We last saw this Pattern a few weeks ago, in the November 16th drawing.

Next, we come to the 0 3 3 Specific Order, making its 41st appearance. This Specific Order has now appeared in 34.5% of the 119 drawings where the {3-3} Pattern has played and 2.93% of all Lotto Texas drawings. To see when the 0 3 3 Specific Order previously played, we need to go back to March 2nd, 2016.

Powerball

We saw the {2-2-1-1} Pattern make its 40th appearance. The winning numbers were 3, 14, 18, 25, 45, and PB 7.

Before you shout “Powerball Pattern Tango!” keep in mind that the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has made 42 appearances. Any murmurs of this Tango returning are premature at best.

Now, referring to the {2-2-1-1} Pattern, it has now played in 33.1% of all 121 Powerball drawings. We last saw this Pattern in the October 26th, 2016 drawing.

The [2-2-1-1] General Order made its 14th appearance, its first since the September 28th, 2016 drawing. This General Order has now played in 35% of the 40 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has played, and 11.6% of all Powerball drawings.

Our Powerball coverage continues with the 2 2 0 1 0 1 Specific Order. With its fourth appearance, this Specific Order has played in 28.6% of the 14 drawings the [2-2-1-1] General Order has appeared, and 10% of the 40 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared. Prior to Wednesday, the 2 2 0 1 0 1 Specific Order played in the March 23rd, 2016 drawing.

The spark of warmth came from the repeating Three-Number Combination 3, 18, and 25.

This Combination made its debut earlier this year in the April 16th drawing.

As we draw closer to the end of 2016, what will Lotto Texas and Powerball have in store?
