Scaling Back a Bit

The month of April ended with a bang. There was an Australia Play and a repeating Four-Number Combination in Lotto Texas, and a repeating Three-Number Combination in Powerball. Although there was nothing in the May 3rd drawings that screamed “Blowout!” there were some big plays.

One of these big plays was the 162nd appearance of the {4-2} Pattern, which isn’t commonly seen in Lotto Texas. Wednesday’s winning numbers were 4, 13, 42, 46, 52, and 53.

The big play of the evening in Powerball was the debut of the 0 2 0 1 2 1 Specific Order.

Will the weekend give us a {2-2-1-1} repeat in Powerball? Will another Specific Order make its debut?
