The {3-2-1} Pattern Strikes Back and Return of the {3-1-1-1} Pattern

Today’s post will begin with a couple of shout-outs.

First, to the class of 2018. Whether you’re a college or high school graduate, you’ve survived at least twelve years of schooling, and now it’s time to make your mark in the world. Go forth!

This next shout-out is a special one to the teachers, parents, and students of the Houston area. When tragedy struck (and boy, did it strike), we came together and said to each other, “I got your back”. And, there were some bright spots, too. All this to say, y’all earned those three months. Take that time to chill, stay sharp, and like the old Discovery Channel motto, “Explore your world.”

“Star Wars” reference aside, the post title only tells you a little bit of what went on May 30, 2018. In the most recent Mega Millions post, I mentioned sequels and how summers tend to be filled with them, especially these days. Love ‘em or hate ‘em, they’re a big deal. For lotteries, anyway.

Right now, the jackpots for Lotto Texas and Powerball stand at a respective $6 million and $74 million. Lotto Texas got hit by “sequelitis”. Powerball got bit by something else.

The {3-2-1} Pattern wasn’t the only thing that made an encore! Now with 151 appearances, the 3 1 2 Specific Order has played in 18.6% of the 810 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern. This Specific Order has also played in 9.71% of all 1555 drawings.

Four-Number Combination(s)

The repeating Four-Number Combination 9, 14, 34, and 42 was the cherry on top.

This Combination made its debut in a summer long past. It was the July 21, 2007 drawing. Ten years may seem like nothing to (older) humans, but it is a long time for lotteries.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Repeating Three-Number Combinations were absent.

Will Lotto Texas and Powerball greet June with Pattern streaks/encores, or will other Patterns take the spotlight?
