Greet the New Month with Style

February may be the shortest month but it packs a punch. The Super Bowl is just a few days away, and Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. This year, February started on a Wednesday, which of course means Lotto Texas and Powerball had their drawings! Speaking of Lotto Texas, what better way to start the month than for it to see a Four-Number Combination that debuted almost fifteen years ago?

The February 1st drawing gave us an encore appearance of the {3-2-1} Pattern with winning numbers 12, 19, 26, 29, 37, and 54.

This reigning champion of Patterns has now appeared 738 times and has played in 52.1% of the 1417 Lotto Texas drawings to date. The {3-2-1} Pattern, as you recall, made its appearance in this past Saturday’s drawing.

The 1 3 2 Specific Order, on the other hand, made its prior appearance in the November 19th, 2016 drawing. This Specific Order has now appeared 108 times, and has played in 14.6% of the 738 drawings where the {3-2-1} Pattern has appeared. The 1 3 2 Specific Order has also played in 7.62% of all drawings.

February 1st also marked the repeat appearance of Four-Number Combination 12, 29, 37, and 54.

This Combination made its debut on April 10th, 2002. To put things in perspective, this was just a few months before the music sharing service Napster shut down.

Powerball

Meanwhile, Powerball saw the {3-1-1-1} Pattern. The winning numbers were 9, 43, 57, 60, 64, and PB 10.

Now with 26 appearances, this Pattern has played in 18.7% of the 139 drawings. This Pattern previously played a few weeks back in the January 17th drawing.

Like the {3-1-1-1} Pattern, the [1-1-3-1] General Order was last seen on January 17th. This General Order has played in 38.5% of the 26 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 7.19% of all drawings.

Our lottery coverage of the evening concludes with the 1 0 0 1 3 1 Specific Order, playing for the second time. This Specific Order has now played in 20% of the 10 drawings where the [1-1-3-1] General Order has appeared, 7.69% of the 26 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 1.44% of all drawings. The 1 0 0 1 3 1 Specific Order made its debut in the October 8th, 2016 drawing.

Super Bowl weekend is upon us. Will Lotto Texas and/or Powerball make a big play, or will they cede the excitement to the gridiron?
