September Spice

September is nearly halfway over, and it’s almost time to say goodbye to summer. Although autumn doesn’t start until September 22nd (or 23rd), Lotto Texas and Powerball were getting ready for a big send off. That is, if the results from September 13th were anything to go by. Whether it was a Pattern that doesn’t show up often in Lotto Texas, or three repeating Three-Number Combinations in Powerball, Wednesday night was far from boring!

Of course, if you’re reading from the Southern Hemisphere, replace “winter” with “spring”.

With winning numbers 24, 35, 40, 42, 45, and 48, the {4-2} Pattern made its 167th appearance.

This Pattern has now played in 11.3% of the 1481 Lotto Texas drawings, and was last seen on August 16, 2017.

Now with 29 appearances, the 0 2 4 Specific Order has played in 17.4% of the 167 drawings where the {4-2} Pattern has appeared, and in 1.96% of all 1481 drawings. Prior to Wednesday night, this Specific Order played in the December 14, 2016 drawing.

Here’s a real treat: 35, 40, 42, and 48, the sole repeating Four-Number Combination, made its debut nearly nine-and-a-half years ago! To be more specific, this Combination made its debut in the March 19, 2008 drawing.
