Cooling Off with a Trip Down Under

There was a shift in gears July 5th. Lotto Texas decided to beat the heat, and the {3-2-1} Pattern streak, with an Australia Play. It wasn’t too chilly though, as Wednesday night also saw a repeating Four-Number Combination. Powerball saw its most commonly played Pattern, but there were no repeating Three-Number Combinations. That, and there were no new Specific Orders to speak of in either lottery.

The 197th iteration of the {2-2-2} Pattern was thanks to numbers 4, 8, 24, 32, 47, and 51.


Likewise, the 2 2 2 Specific Order made its 197th appearance. Both the Pattern and Specific Order have played in 13.5% of the 1461 Lotto Texas drawings. The last time an Australia Play appeared was on May 27th, 2017.

This Australia Play also produced the repeating Four-Number Combination 4, 8, 47, and 51, which made its debut in the May 12th, 2001 drawing.

Fun fact: The very first iPod made its debut five months later. It would be several years later before the iPhone made its mark on the world.


The winning numbers were 4, 9, 16, 54, 68, and PB 21, bringing the number of appearances of the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern to 67.
