Fighting the Freeze

Things are starting to warm up in Houston and other parts of the U.S. Whether or not we’re going to board the weather roller coaster again anytime soon is best left to the professionals. Meanwhile, we can say that both Lotto Texas and Powerball were determined to heat things up April 21st. “Quiet” was not the word of the evening!

Given the 1544 Lotto Texas drawings so far, this Pattern has played in 52.1% of them and was last seen on April 7th, 2018.

Now with 121 appearances, the 1 3 2 Specific Order has played in 15% of the 804 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern. This Specific Order has also now played in 7.84% of all 1544 drawings. Prior to Saturday night, it previously played on February 14th, 2018.

Four-Number Combination(s)

Repeating Four-Number Combinations are a fail-safe way to spice it up. There were three of them this time:

  • 17, 24, 49, 53 (Debuted April 23rd, 2016)
  • 17, 24, 28, 49 (Debuted November 7th, 2007)
  • 20, 24, 28, 49 (Debuted November 11th, 2009)

It’s been a while since we’ve seen three repeating Four-Number Combinations in Lotto Texas. How fitting that on their return that we’d see one that made its debut over ten years ago!

This Pattern has played in 34.1% of the 266 Powerball drawings and was last seen in the April 7th, 2018 drawing.

You could say Lotto Texas and Powerball were joined at the hip Saturday night.

With its 23rd appearance, the [1-2-2-1] General Order has played in 29.9% of the 77 drawings where the winning Pattern was {2-2-1-1} and in 8.66% of all 266 drawings. This General Order was seen alongside the {2-2-1-1} Pattern in the earlier-mentioned April 7th drawing.

Alas, a playback was not meant to be. Now with three appearances, the 0 0 1 2 2 1 Specific Order has played in 13% of the 23 drawings where the General Order was [1-2-2-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 3.90% of the 77 drawings where {2-2-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Finally, when looking at all 266 drawings, this General Order has played 1.13% of the time. We last saw the 0 0 1 2 2 1 Specific Order in the October 18th, 2017 drawing.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Along for the ride were three repeating Three-Number Combinations:

  • 40, 50, 62 (Debuted February 10th, 2016 and previously played July 16th, 2016)
  • 62, 69, PB 19 (Debuted October 17th, 2015)
  • 40, 69, PB 19 (Debuted January 23rd, 2016)

Will either the {3-2-1} Pattern or the {2-2-1-1} Pattern be bold enough to establish a Pattern streak to end the month?
