April Showers

“April showers bring May flowers,” so the saying goes. One can assume that said showers are of steady rains, not sprinkles or deluges of Biblical proportions. The April 26, 2017 drawings for Lotto Texas and Powerball were just like those proverbial showers. There were no major upsets, and the biggest play of the evening wasn’t obvious, at least on the surface.

Lotto Texas

Lotto Texas had the biggest draw of the evening, with the encore appearance of the {3-2-1} Pattern. Its 750th appearance was thanks to winning numbers 9, 25, 30, 40, 45, and 53.

The Specific Order of the evening was 1 2 3. Now with 137 appearances, this Specific Order has played in 18.3% of the 750 drawings where the {3-2-1} Pattern has appeared.

There were no repeating Four-Number, or Five-Number Combinations on Wednesday night.


Powerball saw an uncommon Pattern in the form of {3-1-1-1}. Winning numbers 1, 15, 18, 26, 51, and PB 26 brought the number of appearances up to 30.

The thing about showers is that the grey skies give way to sunlight and fields with flowers abloom. With the last drawings of the month for Lotto Texas and Powerball taking place on Saturday, will the flowers bloom early?
