And the Gifting Continues

What a week! Wednesday’s drawing had an Australia Play and repeating Three-Number Combinations in Lotto Texas and Powerball, respectively. The gift explosion continued Saturday in more ways than one.

The December 10, 2016 drawing was the 731st appearance of the {3-2-1} Pattern. The occasion was marked by winning numbers 1, 9, 14, 26, 37, and 46.

As of Saturday, this Pattern has appeared in 52.1% of the 1402 Lotto Texas drawings to date. We previously saw the {3-2-1} Pattern last weekend in the December 3, 2016 drawing.

The 3 1 2 Specific Order made its 130th appearance, its first since the October 5, 2016 drawing. This Specific Order has played in 17.8% of the 731 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern, and in 9.27% of all drawings.

Our Lotto Texas coverage ends with two repeating Four-Number Combinations:

  • 1, 9, 37, and 46, which debuted on July 4, 2012 and
  • 1, 14, 26, and 46, which debuted November 4, 2015

Remember in our coverage of Wednesday’s drawings that Lotto Texas saw an Australia Play? Powerball got in on the action with the appearance of the {1-1-1-1-1-1} Pattern. The winning numbers were 12, 21, 32, 44, 66, and PB 15.

With 13 appearances, the {1-1-1-1-1-1} Pattern has played in 10.5% of 124 Powerball drawings to date. As is the nature of the Australia Play, these statistics also apply to the [1-1-1-1-1-1] General Order and the 1 1 1 1 1 1 Specific Order. Powerball last saw an Australia Play in the November 2, 2016 drawing.

As parents (and teachers) brace for the upcoming Christmas break, will we see an unprecedented Australia Play streak? Will either Lotto Texas or Powerball see a similar spread?
