Falling for Uncommon Patterns and (Repeating) Combinations

Autumn has arrived in Lottery Trend Country. This is a time of cooler temperatures, shortening daytime hours, and of course, pumpkin spice lattes. Before we get far down the rabbit hole of said lattes and autumnal spices, we have the matter of the Lotto Texas and Powerball drawings to cover. September 23rd didn’t see a blowout for either lottery, but there were a couple of interesting plays, especially in Powerball.

Lotto Texas

With winning numbers 8, 10, 14, 17, 28, and 29, the {4-2} Pattern has now played 168 times.
