Common Was the Name of the Game

October 21st was a lot of things to a lot of people:

  • Ten days before Halloween (Have you gotten your costume yet?)
  • The Astros defeated the Yankees, and are on their way to play the Dodgers in the World Series. The first game is Tuesday.
  • There were no Pattern encores.

That last bullet is what we’re focusing on in today’s post. Although neither Lotto Texas nor Powerball saw Pattern encores Saturday night, they did see their most commonly played Patterns.

Earlier this year, the Combination made its debut in the January 4th drawing.

Will Wednesday’s drawing see these Patterns joined at the hip, or will they go their separate ways?
