Served Up Rare

Unlike what we saw in our last Lotto Texas/Powerball post, the February 25th drawing didn’t provide us with Australia Plays or repeating Four-Number (Lotto Texas) or Three-Number (Powerball) Combinations. However, Saturday night was far from “ordinary”. A rarely-seen Pattern made an appearance in Lotto Texas and the Specific Order in Powerball made its second-ever appearance. One noteworthy development was that the Patterns in both lotteries have now played the same number of times.

Saturday’s drawing marked the 50th appearance of the {5-1} Pattern, with winning numbers 16, 37, 42, 46, 49, and 54.

While 50 seems like a high number of occurrences, keep in mind that there have now been 1424 drawings in Lotto Texas. Not only that, the {5-1} Pattern has now played in 3.51% of all drawings, and was last seen in the December 17, 2016 drawing.

Adding a bit more spice to the mix, the 1 0 5 Specific Order was also last seen in the December 17th drawing. This Specific Order has now made 10 appearances, and has played in 20% of the 50 drawings where the {5-1} Pattern has appeared, and 0.70% of all Lotto Texas drawings.


The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern made an encore appearance with winning numbers 6, 32, 47, 62, 65, and PB 19.

Now with 50 appearances, this Pattern has played in approximately 34.2% of the 146 Powerball drawings to date. This Pattern, if you recall, previously played in Wednesday’s drawing.

The [1-1-1-2-1] General Order made its 18th appearance, its first since the October 22, 2016 drawing. This General Order has now played in 36% of the 50 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 12.3% of all drawings.

Our coverage concludes with the second appearance of the 1 0 1 1 2 1 Specific Order. This Specific Order has now played in 11.1% of the 18 drawings where the [1-1-1-2-1] General Order has appeared, 4% of the 50 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 1.37% of all drawings. The 1 0 1 1 2 1 Specific Order made its debut in the September 3, 2016 drawing.

February ended with a bang for Lotto Texas and Powerball. Will March come in like a lion, or will things mellow out?
