The Lottery Flip-Flop

We have a sleeper on our hands.

Lotto Texas, the “classiest” of the lotteries covered on Lottery Binge, has tended to its jackpot and watched it grow! After handing the players yet another thrashing, the prize climbed to $16.5 million. This has been a thing for Lotto Texas since before the summer season started. Slow and steady, indeed!

There was another side to the tale of August 17, 2019. Powerball, certainly no stranger to crazy-large jackpots, appears to have put them to the side. Now, they’ve been growing to healthy size, but they’ve been claimed before reaching the $200 million mark.  Long Island produced the sole winner of the $149 million up for grabs. Naturally, the prize reset itself to $40 million.

This Pattern has played in 20.3% of the 404 Powerball drawings and was last seen July 3, 2019.

The [3-1-1-1] General Order, now with 25 appearances, has played in 30.5% of the 82 drawings where {3-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Once all 404 drawings have been taken into consideration, this General Order has played 6.19% of the time. Prior to Saturday night, the [3-1-1-1] General Order played June 15, 2019.

Now with two appearances, the 0 3 1 0 1 1 Specific Order has played in 8% of the 25 drawings where the General Order was [3-1-1-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 2.44% of the 82 drawings where {3-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in roughly 0.5% of all 404 drawings. The 0 3 1 0 1 1 Specific Order was first seen in the November 3, 2018 drawing.

Three-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations Saturday night.

Powerball will continue its break from crazy-large jackpots, so any shenanigans there are out of the question. But we still have Lotto Texas to contend with. How high will its jackpot get? Will it climb once again come Wednesday or will it be claimed?
