Lotto Texas & Powerball’s “June Boom”

Another month has come and gone but June isn’t just any other month. We’re now halfway through 2019 and depending on who you ask, we’re six months away from the start of a new decade! Time sure flies, eh?

But before we fret about the future and all its potential wonders (and horrors), let’s rewind back to the night of June 29th, 2019. Lotto Texas and Powerball shared the honor of ending the month with climbing jackpots. No grand prize winners meant their respective jackpots rising to $9.25 million and $150 million. Couple those with a Pattern encore and the world debut of a Specific Order, the lotteries weren’t going to enter a new month lying down!

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

Powerball decided to make this past week the week of the {2-2-1-1} Pattern! Fresh from this past Wednesday, the Pattern came back with winning numbers 13, 17, 24, 59, 62, and PB 8.

This Specific Order has also played in 0.93% of the 107 drawings where {2-2-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 0.26% of all 390 drawings.

Three-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations this time.

A strong finish for both Lotto Texas and Powerball means going into July with engines fired up and revving to go! The next drawing is right before the Fourth of July, so we’ll need to keep an eye for pre-holiday fireworks. Will they be in the form of a Pattern three-peat in Powerball or possibly a Pattern encore in Lotto Texas?

The End-of-June Three-peat Special

From a jackpot high to a three-peat, Mega Millions saw a lot of range this month! With June 28th being the last drawing for the month, this lottery wanted to head into July on a high note. Not only did Friday feature a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern three-peat, it made nice with repeating Three-Number Combinations. And, with no grand prize winners, the jackpot climbed to $83 million.

General Lottery Analysis

The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern three-peat was made possible by winning numbers 2, 35, 49, 53, 63, and MB 1. This Pattern has now played 210 times.

Of the 475 Mega Millions drawings, this Pattern has played 44.2% of the time.

The [1-1-2-1-1] General Order also got a touch of encore fever! With 57 appearances, this General Order has played in 27.1% of the 210 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Once all 475 drawings have been taken into consideration, this General Order has played 12% of the time.

Prior to Friday night, the {2-1-1-1-1} General Order and the [1-1-2-1-1] General Order were last seen June 25th, 2019.

Now with 15 appearances, the 1 0 1 2 1 1 Specific Order has played in 26.3% of the 57 drawings where the General Order was [1-1-2-1-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 7.14% of the 210 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Once all 475 drawings are considered, this Specific Order has played 3.16% of the time. We last saw the 1 0 1 2 1 1 Specific Order May 24th, 2019.

Three-Number Combination(s)

A Pattern three-peat and General Order encore weren’t enough for Mega Millions. Friday night also brought forth four repeating Three-Number Combinations, one of which has played twice before!

  • 2, 35, 53 (Debuted March 21st, 2014)
  • 35, 49, MB 1 (Debuted November 1st, 2013 and previously played December 2nd, 2016)
  • 2, 49, MB 1 (Debuted April 22nd, 2014)
  • 2, 49, 63 (Debuted June 20th, 2017)

Mega Millions will head into July with a Pattern streak and a robust jackpot. Will it start the month with a firework show of its own or will it sputter?

The Great Combination Shakeup

There are two ways to end the month: wild and crazy or calm and collected. All signs so far point to lotteries full of energy and ready to end June on a memorable note!

June 26th, 2019 was a busy night for both Lotto Texas and Powerball. A playback was afoot and repeating Three-Number Combinations were abundant! Both lotteries also teamed up to thwart players once more. With no winners, the prizes for Lotto Texas and Powerball climbed to $8.75 million and $137 million, respectively.

Lotto Texas

With winning numbers 1, 19, 26, 34, 35, and 41, the {4-1-1} Pattern made its 180th appearance.

Of the 1667 Lotto Texas drawings, this Pattern has played 10.8% of the time.

Now with 61 appearances, the 1 4 1 Specific Order has played in 33.9% of the 180 drawings where {4-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Once all 1667 drawings have been taken into consideration, this Specific Order has played 3.66% of the time.

Lotto Texas had the honor of hosting a playback! Prior to Wednesday night, both the {4-1-1} Pattern and the 1 4 1 Specific Order were last seen May 11th, 2019.

Four-Number Combination(s)

There are two possible reasons for a lack of repeating Four-Number Combinations. One was the earlier-mentioned playback. The other was the avalanche of repeating Four-Number Combinations this past Saturday.

Of course, the most important question is “Did Powerball see a playback, too?”

Powerball

The {2-2-1-1} Pattern made its 106th appearance with winning numbers 1, 5, 16, 22, 54, and PB 24.

Given the 389 Powerball drawings so far, this Pattern has played 27.2% of the time and was last seen May 18th, 2019.

The [2-2-1-1] General Order, now with 44 appearances, has played in 41.5% of the 106 drawings where {2-2-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Once all 389 drawings have been taken into consideration, this Pattern has played 11.3% of the time. The [2-2-1-1] General Order was last seen March 20th, 2019.

Now with eight appearances, the 2 2 0 1 0 1 Specific Order has played in roughly 18.2% of the 44 drawings where the General Order was [2-2-1-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 7.55% of the 106 drawings where {2-2-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 2.06% of all 389 drawings. Prior to Wednesday night, the 2 2 0 1 0 1 Specific Order played June 20th, 2018.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Powerball may not have seen a playback, but it certainly saw repeating Three-Number Combinations. Four of them, in fact!

One thing that’s certain about Saturday night is that neither Lotto Texas nor Powerball will end June with a Pattern streak. Will the month end with more climbing jackpots or at least one Pattern encore?

Mega Millions and the Encore Blast

Can you believe we’re almost halfway through the year? This past Friday, we welcomed the start of a new season. On June 25th, 2019, there were a couple of things that carried over. One was taking it easy on the repeating Three-Number Combinations. The other was a Pattern encore and that encore made the prize rise yet again! More specifically, it rose to $71 million.

General Lottery Analysis

Fresh from this past Friday, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern made its 209th appearance. This time, the winning numbers were 24, 33, 45, 47, 61, and MB 17.

Of the 474 Mega Millions drawings, this Pattern has played 44.1% of the time and was last seen June 21st, 2019.

The [1-1-2-1-1] General Order, now with 56 appearances, has played in 26.8% of the 209 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Once all 474 drawings have been taken into consideration, this General Order has played 11.8% of the time.

Now with 12 appearances, the 0 1 1 2 1 1 Specific Order has played in 21.4% of the 56 drawings where the General Order was [1-1-2-1-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 5.74% of the 209 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 2.53% of all 474 drawings.

Prior to Tuesday night, both the [1-1-2-1-1] General Order and the 0 1 1 2 1 1 Specific Order played June 4th, 2019. We were this close to a playback, but a Pattern encore is nothing to look down on!

Three-Number Combination(s)

The Pattern encore was enough for Mega Millions. No repeating Three-Number Combinations this time!

Mega Millions will bid “Adieu!” to June this Friday with a Pattern encore under its belt and $71 million up for grabs. Will the month end with a three-peat or will another Pattern lead the way into July?

Lottery Summer Block Party

For the past couple of drawings, both Lotto Texas and Powerball took it easy with the wild plays and crazy jackpots. Summer is about relaxing, after all. But summer is also a time of boldness, and that’s what we saw June 22nd, 2019.

The first Saturday of summer saw Lotto Texas, usually the humble one, rule the night! This lottery’s boldness kept players on their toes and ultimately prevented anyone from winning the grand prize. The jackpot rose to $8.25 million as a result. Even though Lotto Texas dominated, Powerball didn’t slack off. Thanks to its own tricks, the jackpot over there rose to $122 million!

Lotto Texas

The {3-2-1} Pattern got back on its feet and made its 876th appearance with winning numbers 4, 5, 17, 29, 35, and 46.

Once all 1666 drawings have been taken into consideration, this Specific Order has played 9.54% of the time. Prior to Saturday night, the 3 2 1 Specific Order played June 8th, 2019.

Five-Number Combination

The {3-2-1} Pattern was determined to return bigger and badder than before. This was achieved by the power of a repeating Five-Number Combination!

With winning numbers 3, 6, 11, 14, 66, and PB 21, the {4-1-1} Pattern made its 10th appearance.

This Pattern has played in 2.58% of the 388 Powerball drawings and was last seen February 20th, 2019.

The [4-1-1] General Order, now with five appearances, has played in 50% of the 10 drawings where {4-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Once all 388 drawings have been taken into consideration, this General Order has played 1.29% of the time. The [4-1-1] General Order was last seen February 9th, 2019.

Powerball’s contribution to the block party was the debut of the 4 0 0 0 1 1 Specific Order! With that said, this Specific Order has now played in 20% of the five drawings where the General Order was [4-1-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 10% of the 10 drawings where {4-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 0.26% of all 388 drawings.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Three-Number Combinations didn’t show up at the party.

A repeating Five-Number Combination is a tough act to follow! Not much can top it save maybe a Pattern streak or a crazy large jackpot. The crazy large jackpot is more Powerball’s territory, but the {3-2-1} Pattern in Lotto Texas might be able to squeeze out a streak to end the month. Although, one must wonder if another repeating Five-Number Combination will show up next week, or if this was one of those “Snow in Florida” kind of things.

The Mega Millions Solstice Cool Down

Happy (belated) Solstice everyone! June 21st was a changing of the guard, season-wise. While Alaskans are playing a midnight baseball game, Kiwis are throwing on their winter coats.

With summer comes heat; if it’s too hot and you exert yourself too hard, you’re going to get exhausted. That’s what happened to Mega Millions Friday night. After the blowout earlier this week, the lottery took it easy and at the same time, prevented a grand prize winner. The jackpot, as a result, rose to $60 million.

General Lottery Analysis

The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern made its 208th appearance with winning numbers 13, 30, 36, 48, 62, and MB 18.

This Specific Order has also played in 4.81% of the 208 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 2.11% of all 473 drawings. The 1 0 2 1 1 1 Specific Order was last seen February 15th, 2019.

Three-Number Combination(s)

As part of the recuperation phase, Mega Millions didn’t partake in any repeating Three-Number Combination shenanigans. Perhaps next time?

There’s approximately one week left in June and the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern came back. Could this Pattern try for a streak to end the month, or was Friday night a precursor for a quiet finale?

Making the Quiet Roll?

Remember the honor roll back when we were kids? Whether a source of inspiration, or the source of future bullying victims, schools had a way of posting the names of those who made high marks. If schools have honor rolls, then what do lotteries have when they don’t make a big splash?

In some ways, June 19th was much like this past Saturday. Things were quiet on the repeating Combination front and one Pattern didn’t want to leave the spotlight. With no grand prize winners in either Lotto Texas or Powerball, their respective jackpots rose to $8.25 million and $108 million.

Lotto Texas

Four-Number Combination(s)

The lack of a Pattern encore was one reason Lotto Texas made the “Quiet Roll”. The other was for lack of repeating Four-Number Combinations.

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

Perhaps the biggest play of the evening was the {3-1-1-1} Pattern three-peat! Winning numbers 4, 18, 21, 26, 38, and PB 1 made the 80th appearance of this Pattern possible.

We last saw the 1 3 1 0 0 1 Specific Order September 15th, 2018.

Three-Number Combination(s)

The {3-1-1-1} Pattern three-peat was all Powerball could muster. There wasn’t enough energy for a repeating Three-Number Combination.

These past couple of drawings have seen Lotto Texas and Powerball take a break from mad plays. If you’re one for Pattern streaks, Australia Plays, and whatnot, June isn’t over yet! Going into Saturday’s drawing, all that’s certain is the jackpots for the lotteries are higher than they were Wednesday night. Will the {3-1-1-1} Pattern aim for a Pattern streak?

The Power of Change

Whether we like it or not, change is one of those things in life that’s inevitable. And yet, the results of change are sometimes not predictable! Take this past Friday’s Mega Millions drawing for example. There was Pattern encore, and given the Pattern that had played, it wouldn’t have been out of sorts to expect a three-peat for June 18th, 2019.

That three-peat didn’t come. What did come that night was a jackpot that rose to $55 million and madness amongst the repeating Three-Number Combinations.

General Lottery Analysis

The {2-2-1-1} Pattern was the one who blocked the three-peat. With winning numbers 12, 14, 22, 24, 48, and MB 21, this Pattern has played 134 times.

Once all 472 drawings have been taken into consideration, this General Order has played 9.11% of the time. We last saw the [2-2-1-1] General Order April 19th, 2019.

Now with four appearances, the 2 2 0 1 0 1 Specific Order has played in 9.30% of the 43 drawings where the General Order was [2-2-1-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 2.99% of the 134 drawings where {2-2-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 0.85% of all 472 drawings. Prior to Tuesday night, the 2 2 0 1 0 1 Specific Order played November 21st, 2017.

As in nature, so it is in lottery. Change is inevitable, no matter how small it may seem. The seasons are a changin’ and we’ll be going into Friday night with lots of momentum. We’ll have to wait and see what else changes.

Lotteries of Solitude

After the madness we saw this past Wednesday, Lotto Texas and Powerball earned a well-deserved rest. On June 15th, they said “No!” to wild plays and Pattern streaks. Save for a Pattern encore and prizes that respectively rose to $8 million and $92 million, Saturday night was one of the quietest we’ve had in a while.

Three-Number Combination(s)

 There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations this time.

Was Saturday night a prelude for how the rest of the month will be or is it the calm before the storm? There is another half of June left in play, after all!

Mellow Mega Millions’ Mega Encore

The date: June 14th, 2019. Fridays are special. They’re a gateway to the weekend, and there are various ways to kick off that two-day mini vacation. Many go to a movie or a nice restaurant. Netflix and chilling with the dog is a less expensive, but increasingly popular, alternative.

If Mega Millions had been a part of your weekend kick-off this past Friday, then you knew the agony (and frustration) of defeat. As the lottery continued its recuperation, it made sure that no one could claim the prize just yet. The jackpot rose to $50 million, hardly chump change but nowhere near the monster that was struck down just last week.

General Lottery Analysis

The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern went for the encore with numbers 19, 40, 47, 57, 65, and MB 6. This Pattern has now played 207 times.

Although it’ll be a while yet before another monster jackpot goes on a rampage, Mega Millions has other means of building momentum. One such way is a Pattern streak. These streaks always start off with an encore, then move on to a three-peat, and so on. Given the nature of the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern, we’ll need to keep an eye out that three-peat or whichever Pattern decides to block it!
