Hopping Along with a Callback

Autumn, of course, is when temperatures start to cool down. The term “Cool down” didn’t apply to either Lotto Texas or Powerball. To commemorate the first full week of autumn, there was an Australia Play and a callback to a drawing from right before Harvey. Question is, which pattern saw what play the night of September 27th?

Lotto Texas

The {2-2-2} Pattern bounded its way to its 199th appearance. Wednesday’s winning numbers were 2, 6, 26, 32, 42, and 49.

Now, given that was an Australia Play, the 2 2 2 Specific Order also made its 199th appearance. Both have now played in 13.4% of the 1485 Lotto Texas drawing, and previously played on July 15, 2017.


Unlike the {3-2-1} Pattern in Lotto Texas, Powerball’s {3-2-1} Pattern is rare indeed. Out of 207 drawings, this Pattern made its 10th appearance Wednesday. The winning numbers for the big 1-0 were 8, 10, 21, 23, 25, and PB 22.

This Pattern has now played in 4.83% of the 207 drawings.

With eight appearances, the [2-3-1] General Order has played in 80% of the 10 drawings where the {3-2-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 3.86% of all 207 drawings.

Now with two appearances, the 2 3 0 0 0 1 Specific Order has played in 25% of the 8 drawings where the [2-3-1] General Order has appeared, and in 20% of the 10 drawings where the {3-2-1} Pattern has appeared. This Specific Order has now played in roughly one percent of all 207 drawings.

Powerball’s Pattern, General Order, and Specific Order were all seen together in the August 23, 2017 drawing!

Technically speaking, an Australia Play is a callback. On this blog, the term will be used to describe an occurrence of a Pattern, General Order (when applicable), and Specific Order that played together in a previous drawing, and are not part of an Australia Play.

Our Powerball coverage concludes with the lone Three-Number Combination of the evening: 8, 10, and PB 22.

This Combination made its debut in the December 3, 2016 drawing.

Will Saturday’s drawing see more callbacks? Will both Lotto Texas and Powerball see the {3-2-1} Pattern?
