Pre-Super Bowl Playbacks

Ah, the Super Bowl. The teams, the commercials, the over-the-top halftime shows, truly (pigskin) football is the real American pastime. As Lottery Trend Country was getting ready for the Super Bowl, things were not quiet on the lottery front. The theme for February 3rd was “Playback”, and both Lotto Texas and Powerball delivered the goods.

An Australia Play is a playback. However, a playback isn’t always an Australia Play.

Accompanying the Australia Play was the repeating Four-Number Combination 3, 12, 38, and 50.

With 244 Powerball drawings to date, the {3-2-1} Pattern has played 6.15% of the time.

The [3-2-1] General Order, now with five appearances, has played in 33.3% of the 15 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern. When looking at all 244 drawings, this General Order has played 2.05% of the time.

Now with two appearances, the 0 3 0 2 0 1 Specific Order has played in 40% of the five drawings where [3-2-1] was the General Order of the evening. This statistic becomes 13.3% when taking the 15 drawings where {3-2-1} played into account. Finally, when looking at all 244 drawings, this Specific Order has played 0.82% of the time.

The {3-2-1} Pattern, the [3-2-1] General Order, and the 0 3 0 2 0 1 Specific Order previously played in the January 27, 2018 drawing.

Three-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations.

Will there be more playbacks and Australia Plays in the week ahead?
