Pre-Halloween Playback Fever

October 28, 2017 was a good night for Netflix, nail-biting World Series games, and lottery. For those of you who enjoy playbacks, Saturday was your night! We saw a playback in Lotto Texas. Powerball was close, but a playback wasn’t meant to be. However, the Specific Order played for the first time in over a year. Which Pattern led the way to a playback in Lotto Texas, and what was that Powerball Specific Order?

General Lottery Analysis

The {3-3} Pattern made its 127th appearance with winning numbers 3, 7, 13, 37, 38, and 50.

These numbers produced a Pattern that hadn’t been seen in nearly two months. Source:

Given that there have been 1494 Lotto Texas drawings, this Pattern has played 8.5% of the time. We last saw this Pattern about a couple of months ago in the August 30, 2017 drawing.

Now with 48 appearances, the 3 0 3 Specific Order has played in 37.8% of the 127 drawings where the {3-3} Pattern has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 3.21% of all 1494 drawings. The 3 0 3 Specific Order was also last seen on August 30th.

Note that the “previously played” date for both the Pattern and Specific Order are the same. This is not an Australia Play because the Pattern and Specific Order are not the same. Remember that in Lotto Texas, an Australia Play consists of the {2-2-2} Pattern and 2 2 2 Specific Order.

Lotto Texas and Powerball will be the lotteries to kick off November. Will Wednesday’s drawings see any Pattern encores?
