Australia Play Fever

Looks like something is starting to go around in lottery world! In our Wednesday coverage, Lotto Texas saw an Australia Play. That is, the Pattern, General Order, and Specific Order matched. Although there wasn’t an encore in Lotto Texas (how awesome would that have been?), Powerball got the bug.

Our coverage of the January 28th Lotto Texas drawing begins with the 737th appearance of the {3-2-1} Pattern. The winning numbers this time were 5, 7, 30, 48, 51, and 52.

This Pattern has played in approximately 52% of the 1416 drawings thus far, and was last seen in the January 11, 2017 drawing. Note that the {3-2-1} Pattern is far and away the most commonly seen Pattern in Lotto Texas.

The 2 1 3 Specific Order made its 110th appearance, its first since the January 4, 2017 drawing. This Specific Order has played in 14.9% of the 737 drawings where the {3-2-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 7.77% of all drawings.

There were no repeating Four-Number Combinations in Lotto Texas this time around.


Saturday night’s fireworks were primarily from the Powerball camp. The Australia Play made its 14th appearance, thanks to winning numbers 12, 20, 39, 49, 69, and PB 17.

These numbers follow the {1-1-1-1-1-1} Pattern, and has now played in 14 of the 138 Powerball drawings. Given said Pattern, it follows that the [1-1-1-1-1-1] General Order and the 1 1 1 1 1 1 Specific Order have also appeared 14 times. All of them have played in 10.1% of all the drawings. The last time we saw an Australia Play in Powerball was in the December 10, 2016 drawing.

Not only did we see an Australia Play, we also saw a repeating Three-Number Combination in the form of 12, 20, and PB 17.

This Combination made its debut a little over a year ago, in the November 4, 2015 drawing.

Will either Lotto Texas or Powerball see rarely-played Patterns in the week ahead? Will the Australia Play make an encore?
