Breaking Up the Streak

The {3-2-1} and {2-1-1-1-1} Patterns parted ways yet again on August 12th. The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern streak in Powerball came to an end, yet the {3-2-1} Pattern made an encore in Lotto Texas. Joining the {3-2-1} Pattern were two repeating Four-Number Combinations.

With 766 appearances, the {3-2-1} Pattern continued to be the most commonly seen Pattern. Saturday night’s winning numbers were 5, 8, 16, 24, 25, and 46.


This Pattern has played in 52% of the 1472 Lotto Texas drawings.

Making its 132nd appearance, the 3 2 1 Specific Order has played in 17.2% of the 766 drawings where the {3-2-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 8.97% of all 1472 drawings. This Specific Order did not play alongside the {3-2-1} Pattern in this past Wednesday’s drawing. To see when the 3 2 1 Specific Order previously played, we need to go back to the June 17th, 2017 drawing.

The repeating Four-Number Combinations of the evening were

  • 5, 8, 16, 46 (Debuted November 27th, 2010)
