Two Patterns: Three Times

July has come and gone for Lotto Texas and Powerball, and things ended with them joined at the hip. In the last two drawings, both have had their most commonly seen Patterns make appearances together. The July 29th drawing marked the third time in a row that this has occurred. Not only that, these Patterns can’t go without having some sort of Combination action taking place. “Two” has become the favorite number for repeating Four-Number Combinations that show up in Lotto Texas. Powerball decided that one repeating Three-Number Combination was enough.

Will it be another eight or so years before these Combinations appear again?

Will the {3-2-1} and the {2-1-1-1-1} Patterns make another joint appearance to kick off August?
