Going Their Separate Ways

Saturday night saw the split-up of Lotto Texas’s {3-2-1} Pattern and Powerball’s {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern. In our last Lotto Texas/Powerball post, we were wondering if these Patterns were going to continue to stick together.  The {3-2-1} Pattern didn’t make an appearance Saturday night. Instead, one of the least commonly seen Lotto Texas Patterns played in its stead. Accompanying this Pattern was a similar spread and a repeating Four-Number Combination. Powerball continued onward with its {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern streak, the Pattern now having made its fifth consecutive appearance.

This Pattern has played in 3.61% of the 1470 Lotto Texas drawings, and was last seen in the July 19th, 2017 drawing.

Making its 14th appearance, the 1 5 0 Specific Order has played in 26.4% of the 53 drawings where the {5-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 0.95% of all 1470 drawings. Prior to Saturday, this Specific Order was last seen over a year ago. More specifically, the March 23rd, 2016 drawing.

The similar spread was shared with the winning numbers of the November 29th, 2006 drawing. That night saw winning numbers 25, 44, 46, 47, 48, and 54, creating a spread of 19:02:01:01:06. The spread for Saturday night’s numbers was 19:01:02:06:01. Note that the order of the spreads is different, even though the difference between numbers in both drawings is the same.

The repeating Four-Number Combination of the evening was 26, 27, 29, and 35, which made its debut in the March 14th, 2007 drawing.

This Pattern has now played in 37.5% of the 192 Powerball drawings.

With 19 appearances, the [1-2-1-1-1] General Order has played in 26.4% of the 72 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared. This General Order has also played in approximately 9.90% of all 192 drawings, and was last seen in the July 26th drawing about a week-and-a-half ago.

Making its third appearance, the 1 2 1 1 0 1 Specific Order has played in 15.8% of the 19 drawings where the [1-2-1-1-1] General Order has appeared, and in roughly 4.17% of the 72 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 1.56% of all 192 drawings, and was last seen in the November 9th, 2016 drawing.

The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern decided to go it alone, as there were no repeating Three-Number Combinations.

Will the {5-1} Pattern make an encore appearance in Wednesday’s drawing? Will the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern go for a sixth consecutive appearance in Powerball?
