Numbers to Go

Another Thanksgiving weekend has come and gone. People took to the skies and roads once again on November 25th, wanting to beat the mad rush home that would surely await them if they left Sunday. Lotto Texas sent along a playback. That is, both the Pattern and Specific Order were seen together on a previous date. Meanwhile, Powerball ran into a Pattern encore.

This Pattern has played in 51.9% of the 1502 Lotto Texas drawings, and was last seen on November 8, 2017.

Now with 144 appearances, the 3 1 2 Specific Order has played in 18.5% of the 780 drawings where the {3-2-1} Pattern has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 9.59% of all 1502 drawings. As is the nature of a playback, this Specific Order accompanied the {3-2-1} Pattern November 8th. Note that a playback is not an Australia Play. Remember that with the latter, both the Pattern and the Specific Order would be the same. For Lotto Texas, that would be the {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order, respectively.

Here’s a good rule of thumb to abide by: All Australia Plays are playbacks, but not all playbacks are Australia Plays.

Four-Number Combination(s)

Among Saturday’s numbers was the repeating Four-Number Combination 7, 10, 12, 22.
