The Six Lives of the {3-2-1} Pattern

January truly was the month of the {3-2-1} Pattern and the results of Wednesday’s Lotto Texas drawing fortified it. This (normally) unassuming little lottery, what with its now $6.25 million prize, played its most common Pattern for the sixth time in a row!

Although Powerball didn’t see a Pattern encore, it too saw its most common Pattern make a play. The jackpot increased to $191 million, which gave it a boost going into February.

Mega Millions will be starting February with a fire in its belly. Will it continue to ramp things up with a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern four-peat, or perhaps multiple repeating Three-Number Combinations?

For January, a Pattern Streak

There was one Pattern that dominated the month and that was the {3-2-1}. This Pattern found itself more at home in Lotto Texas on January 26th. Meanwhile, Powerball stuck with one of its more common Patterns. But, one thing that can be said about both lotteries is that with no grand prize winners, their respective jackpots rose to $6 million and $174 million.

Melting Through The Ice

According to meteorology, January 25th says winter, but Mega Millions said, “No more!” Having decided to no longer give in to the cold, it broke free of its icy prison Friday night. Things heated up with a Pattern encore.  With a grand prize now at $106 million, maybe it could help create a warming trend?

Night of the Living {3-2-1} Pattern

The {3-2-1} Pattern slayed it! Let it be known that on January 23rd, 2019, not only did this Pattern establish a streak in Lotto Texas, it made an appearance in Powerball. Powerball! Rising jackpots kept the fire burning. With the lotteries’ respective jackpots now $5.75 million and $161 million, hopefully the cold will stay away for a while. In the lottery world, at least.

Just Another Mega Millions Chill

There may only be a week left in January but getting through the rest of the month could be a slog! Winter has made itself at home in much of the (northern) U.S. and to dramatic effect.

Meanwhile, the January 22nd, 2019 Mega Millions drawing was like getting stuck in ice. The {2-2-1-1} Pattern streak ended before it could even start. That is, there was no Pattern encore and forget about an Australia Play or even a playback.

The one glowing ember was a $96 million jackpot, made possible by no grand prize winner.

To commemorate the dead of winter, there were no repeating Three-Number Combinations.

After the crazy-large jackpot that was claimed in the New Year’s Day drawing, January has been a quiet month for Mega Millions. Nevertheless, one must wonder if a Pattern streak or other “wild plays” are in the cards before the month draws to a close. If not, there is the matter of the General and Specific Orders being joined at the hip. Could the aftermath of Friday’s drawing reveal yet another shared past playdate?

Lotto Texas & Powerball Follow the Cold

Would you believe that there were six repeating Three-Number Combinations in Lotto Texas last week? And that five of them were thanks to a repeating Five-Number Combination? Well, nothing that grand happened January 19th, 2019. As winter held the U.S. in its icy grip, both Lotto Texas and Powerball matched the chilly mode. The result was a jackpot rise to the tune of $5.5 million and $144 million, respectively.

Although, to be fair, last week’s act was a tough one to beat.

Restoring the Powerball “Order”

Amazing how much difference a few days can make! Last time, it was Lotto Texas that claimed the night. On January 16th, 2019, things went back to “normal”. That is, Powerball once more became the dominant one. There were a couple of commonalities between them, however. One was rising jackpots. These prizes increased to $5.25 million for Lotto Texas and $129 million for Powerball. The other was Pattern encores.
