A Playback and a Storm of (Repeating) Combinations

True to the spirit of Saturday nights, October 7, 2017 was in the throes of parties. Number parties, that is. Lotto Texas saw a three-peat and Powerball? Powerball saw a repeating Four-Number Combination for the first time in seven weeks.

This Pattern has played in 52.1% of the 1488 drawings.

The 2 3 1 Specific Order has appeared in 128 drawings, and has played in 16.5% of the 775 drawings where the {3-2-1} Pattern has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 8.60% of all 1488 drawings. Lately, it appears that this Specific Order is joined at the hip with the {3-2-1} Pattern, as it too was caught in the throes of a three-peat.

Contrary to popular expectations, there were no repeating Four-Number Combinations here. As we hinted at earlier, that happened in Powerball.


General Lottery Analysis

For those of you who’ve been following Lottery Binge, you know the rule. First the general analysis, and then the Combinations. Ahem.

This Pattern has played in roughly 19% of the 210 Powerball drawings, and was last seen about a couple of weeks ago. More specifically, in the September 23, 2017 drawing.

Now with 18 appearances, the [1-1-3-1] General Order has played in 45% of the 40 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared. And, this General Order has played in 8.57% of all 210 drawings. This General Order is not an encore appearance. To see when this General Order previously played, we need to go back to July 15, 2017.

Making its fourth appearance, the 1 0 0 1 3 1 Specific Order has played in 22.2% of the 18 drawings where the [1-1-3-1] General Order has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 10% of the 40 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 1.90% of all 210 drawings. And, like the [1-1-3-1] Specific Order, we need to go back to an earlier date to see when the 1 0 0 1 3 1 Specific Order previously played. In this case, we last saw the Specific Order in the June 21, 2017 drawing.

Four-Number Combination(s)

So, for the first time in seven weeks, a repeating Four-Number Combination showed its face in Powerball:

Remember, repeating Four-Number Combinations are not common with Powerball! You know where it is common though? Lotto Texas.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Of course, we can’t talk about a repeating Four-Number Combination without the Three-Number Combinations that were “birthed” from it, can we?

  • 63, 65, PB 7
  • 61, 65, PB 7
  • 61, 63, PB 7
  • 61, 63, 65

As is the nature of this type of occurrence, these four Combinations also made their debut in the November 16th, 2016 drawing.

Will either the {3-2-1} Pattern or {3-1-1-1} Pattern make an encore in Wednesday’s drawing? Will Powerball throw another zinger and play another repeating Four-Number Combination?
