Common Things

“Common” was the surface theme of the evening for June 17th. Both Lotto Texas and Powerball saw their most commonly played Patterns. Powerball’s Pattern play was also an encore this time around. Of course, there’s more to the story. Lotto Texas had two repeating Four-Number Combinations, and Powerball had one repeating Three-Number Combination.

Now with 756 appearances, the {3-2-1} Pattern showed no signs of being upstaged by another Pattern. The winning numbers Saturday night were 3, 4, 6, 23, 34, and 54.


This Pattern has played in 51.9% of the 1456 Lotto Texas drawings, and was last seen in the June 10th drawing one week prior.

Making its 131st appearance, the 3 2 1 Pattern has played in 17.3% of the 756 drawings where the {3-2-1} Pattern appeared, and in 8.997% of all 1456 drawings. This Specific Order previously played in the March 22nd, 2017 drawing.

Once again, the range of Four-Number Combination dates ranged from the era of smartphones all the way back to the era of Blockbuster and Napster.



Right off the heels of this past Wednesday’s drawing, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern made another appearance. This time around, the winning numbers were 10, 13, 32, 53, 62, and PB 21, bringing the total number of appearances to 65.


This Pattern has played in 36.5% of the 178 Powerball drawings.

The [2-1-1-1-1] General Order made its fourteenth appearance, and has now played in 21.5% of the 65 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared. This General Order has also played in 7.87% of all 178 drawings. Unlike the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern, the [2-1-1-1-1] General Order did not make an encore.

The next Lotto Texas and Powerball drawings will take place on the summer solstice (or winter solstice for any readers in the Southern Hemisphere). How will Lotto Texas and Powerball mark the occasion? Will a Pattern streak be established with the most commonly seen Patterns, or will things mellow out?
