No Hump Here

Ah, Wednesday, that one day where everyone thinks, “If I can get over the hump, the rest of the week’ll be easy.” Yes, happy hours are the standard way of celebrating that mid-week milestone. Another way to celebrate, of course, is to play the lottery. Lotto Texas and Powerball didn’t lose any momentum after the Super Bowl. If the Patterns that played on February 8, 2017 were anything to go by, they gained momentum!

Lotto Texas

The {4-2} Pattern made an encore. Wednesday’s winning numbers were 10, 15, 47, 49, 51 and 52, marking the 159th appearance of the {4-2} Pattern.

This Pattern has now appeared in 11.2% of the 1419 drawings to date and previously played in the February 4, 2017 drawing.

The Specific Order of the evening was 2 0 4, which was last seen in the October 8, 2016 drawing. As of Wednesday, this Specific Order has played 20 times, meaning it has played in 12.6% of the 159 drawings where the {4-2} Pattern has appeared, and in 1.41% of all drawings.

Lotto Texas also gifted us with a repeat appearance of two Four-Number Combinations:

  • 10, 47, 49, and 52, which debuted September 1, 2007 and
  • 15, 47, 51, and 52, which debuted December 3, 2016.

It’s not often that we see a Four-Number Combination repeat a short while after its debut.

Powerball

Powerball saw the 15th appearance of the Australia Play.  The winning numbers 14, 20, 42, 49, 66, and PB 5 followed the {1-1-1-1-1-1} Pattern.

Of course, when the {1-1-1-1-1-1} Pattern appears, the [1-1-1-1-1-1] General Order and the 1 1 1 1 1 1 Specific Order make their appearance too. All three have played in 10.6% of the 141 Powerball drawings to date, and were last seen a few weeks ago in the January 28, 2017 drawing.

This Australia Play also spawned a repeat of the Three-Number Combination 14, 66, and PB 5, which debuted on November 14, 2015.

Will Lotto Texas and Powerball keep up the momentum, or will they simmer down on Saturday night?
