For the Love of Spread

This August has been anything but boring in the lottery world. Sometime during the summer, Lotto Texas developed a love of shenanigans. This normally peaceful lottery has partaken in a love of similar spreads and playbacks. It even let the {3-3} Pattern have a taste of “the encores”! The shenanigans continued August 10, 2019 with more similar spread action and a prize that climbed to $15.75 million.

In a surprising turn of events, Powerball has taken the role of the chaste lottery. Even so, it too has kept players at bay. The prize grew to $138 million.

Once all 1680 drawings have been taken into consideration, this Specific Order has played 7.86% of the time. The 1 3 2 Specific Order was last seen April 24, 2019.

Similar Spread

Would you believe that this is the second drawing in a row that a similar spread showed up? Saturday night’s spread was 01:08:09:12:04. On April 13, 2013, the winning numbers were 4, 13, 14, 18, 26, and 38; their spread was 09:01:04:08:12. Whether similar spreads are spread out or a back-to-back occurrence, the differences between numbers can be the same, but their orders are different.

Four-Number Combination(s)

In spite of the madness, there were no repeating Four-Number Combinations.
