Great Lotteries Think Alike

In the past, we’ve seen Lotto Texas and Powerball play the same Pattern, and even have a “joint” Pattern streak. Although neither of those things happened May 9th, that night was a treat for playback lovers everywhere. In fact, the night was bouncing with not just playbacks but repeating Four-Number and Three-Number Combinations.

General Lottery Analysis

With winning numbers 9, 17, 30, 34, 39, and 51, both the {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order made their 215th appearance. These two combined make up that special playback we here like to call the Australia Play.

Given that there have been 1549 Lotto Texas drawings, the Australia Play has happened in 13.9% of them. An Australia Play was previously seen on April 18, 2018.

Four-Number Combination(s)

There was also one repeating Four-Number Combination.

The Australia Play was contagious! Powerball hopped in with winning numbers 11, 16, 38, 50, 69, and PB 19.

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 now played 20 times each. And, with 271 Powerball drawings, that means Powerball’s Australia Play has happened 7.38% of the time.  The last time this happened was in the April 4, 2018 drawing.

Three-Number Combination(s)

The repeating Three-Number Combination was 50, 69, and PB 19.

Interestingly, this Combination made its debut in the April 21st drawing just a few weeks ago.

Another interesting (and totally out of character) thing is how short this post was for Lotto Texas and Powerball analysis. With Mother’s Day (for the US/Canada/Australia anyway) right around the corner, will these lotteries be sweet and chill, or go nuts with Australia Play encores?
