Powerball got bit by the Australia Play bug this time. With winning numbers 8, 24, 42, 54, 64, and PB 24, an Australia Play has occurred 19 times.

Powerball nabbed itself an Australia Play. Soure:

That means that, given the 261 Powerball drawings we’ve seen so far, the {1-1-1-1-1-1} Pattern, [1-1-1-1-1-1] General Order, and 1 1 1 1 1 1 Specific Order have played 7.28% of the time. Powerball last saw an Australia Play in the February 17th, 2018 drawing.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Alas, there were no repeating Three-Number Combinations.

Will either lottery see an encore in Saturday’s drawing, or will they take a breather from encores?
