Pre-Mother’s Day Saturday Encore

Today’s post is going to start with a tribute.

Be they called “mothers”, “las madres”, or just plain “Moms”, without them we wouldn’t be. They nurtured us, comforted us, fussed at us (when we needed it!), and made sure we became functioning members of society. Mothers aren’t perfect, but dang if they don’t try. Even when the kids have grown up and have lives of their own, mothers are like artists: they feel their work is never done! As annoying as it may seem, we’ll end up missing that fussing and “worrisomeness” when their time comes.

And, in the spirit of Mother’s Day, May 12th was a quiet night for Lotto Texas and Powerball. The only rowdiness was a Pattern encore and a repeating Three-Number Combination.

This Pattern has played in 216 drawings. Of course, when the {2-2-2} Pattern played, that meant the 2 2 2 Specific Order was along for the ride. Given that there have been 216 Lotto Texas drawings, both the {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order have played in 13.9% of them.

Four-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Four-Number Combinations this time.

This Combination made its debut in the September 23, 2017 drawing.

Will either Powerball or Lotto Texas see Pattern encores on Wednesday, or will other Patterns take the reins?
