900 Reasons for a Playback

November 9th, 2019 was not a “Stay home and chill” kind of night! Not only did Lotto Texas see a playback, its most commonly seen Pattern reached a milestone. Throw in a repeating Five-Number Combination, one wouldn’t be wrong to think Lotto Texas reigned supreme. All that madness combined to raise the jackpot to $8.25 million.

Powerball didn’t sit around, either! It too had the playback itch to scratch and saw its grand prize ascend to $60 million.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

The {3-2-1} Pattern, Lotto Texas’s most commonly seen Pattern, made its 900th appearance Saturday night! The winning numbers were 4, 10, 36, 38, 41, and 49.

Here’s to 900 more! Source: lotterytrend.com.

This Pattern has now played in 52.8% of the 1706 drawings.

Now with 129 appearances, the 2 1 3 Specific Order has played in 14.3% of the 900 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern. Once all 1706 drawings have been taken into consideration, this Specific Order has played 7.56% of the time.

The playback in Lotto Texas was a special one. Not only was it a playback, it was also an encore. Both the {3-2-1} Pattern and the 2 1 3 Specific Order were last seen in the November 6th, 2019 drawing.

Five-Number Combination

The repeating Five-Number Combination of the evening was 4, 10, 38, 41, and 49.

This Combination debuted in the March 20th, 2013 drawing.

Four-Number Combination(s)

Naturally, if you slice a repeating Five-Number Combination open, five repeating Four-Number Combinations will fall out:

  • 10, 38, 41, 49
  • 4, 10, 41, 49
  • 4, 10, 38, 49
  • 4, 10, 38, 41
  • 4, 38, 41, 49

And, due to the nature of these things, all five of the above Combinations debuted in that same March 23, 2013 drawing.

Powerball

Interestingly, Powerball’s playback also involved its most commonly seen Pattern. With winning numbers 14, 17, 35, 38, 60, and PB 25, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern made its 163rd appearance.

Three-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations.

Will more playbacks be in store for the week ahead?

Ce N’est Pas Une Playback (This is Not a Playback)

Friday nights were meant for football.  They were also meant for parties, relaxing with a good drink, and big plays for Mega Millions. Except, there weren’t any big plays November 8th, 2019. By that, we mean no Pattern encore, no Australia Play, not even a playback. Sure, Mega Millions came close, but a playback wasn’t mean to be. If by “major play”, you thought we meant, “No one won and the prize got larger”, then you were right on the money (no pun intended)! The jackpot increased to $163 million.

General Lottery Analysis

With winning numbers 3, 4, 10, 39, 58, and MB 14, the {3-1-1-1} Pattern made its 95th appearance.

This Pattern has now played in 18.5% of the 513 Mega Millions drawings.

The [3-1-1-1] General Order, now with 37 appearances, has played in 38.9% of the 95 drawings where {3-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Once all 513 drawings have been taken into consideration, this General Order has played 7.21% of the time.

Now with two appearances, the 3 0 1 0 1 1 Specific Order has played in 5.41% of the 37 drawings where the General Order was [3-1-1-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 2.11% of the 95 drawings where {3-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 0.39% of all 513 drawings. The 3 0 1 0 1 1 Specific Order made its first appearance in the October 15th, 2019 drawing.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Another big development was the repeat appearances of two Three-Number Combinations:

  • 4, 39, MB 14 (Debuted April 3rd, 2018)
  • 10, 39, MB 14 (Debuted May 9th, 2014)
But repeating Three-Number Combinations gel! Source: lotterytrend-megamillions.com.

Whether a playback is in Mega Millions’ immediate future is something that can’t be foretold. What we should direct our attention to is the jackpot. It’s not far from crazy-large territory. We’ll have to see if it crosses that $200 million threshold, and if it does, how much farther it will go…

Playback Snapback

After a weekend of sleeping off a candy binge and welcoming the extra hour of sleep (not so much early sunsets), Lotto Texas and Powerball decided to relax another night. Even though the lotteries took it easy, Wednesday night wasn’t completely quiet. There was a playback, for one! That, and the jackpots rose to $8 million and $50 million, respectively.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

If you’re one who loves suspense while reading Lottery Binge, then we’re sorry to disappoint. Lotto Texas was the one who had the playback. November 6th, 2019 also saw the 899th appearance of the {3-2-1} Pattern. The numbers that made it all possible were 4, 16, 23, 44, 50, and 53.

Prior to Wednesday night, both the {3-2-1} Pattern and 2 1 3 Specific Order played October 26th, 2019.

Four-Number Combination(s)

Lotto Texas had just enough energy for the playback. Repeating Four-Number Combinations never registered.

Powerball

Three-Number Combination(s)

Powerball didn’t have the stamina for a repeating Three-Number Combination.

The {3-2-1} Pattern in Lotto Texas is fond of making encore appearances. What with it coming up on 900 appearances, we’ll have to see if it reaches that milestone Saturday night. Of course, what we all really want to know if another playback will show!

Shaking Off the “Fall Back”

This past weekend saw many residents of the US and Canada set their clocks back one hour. That meant more time to sleep and a quiet weekend on the lottery front. For Lotto Texas and Powerball anyway; there were no repeating Four or Three-Number Combinations to speak of.

The idea of a restful weekend was foreign to Mega Millions. It was revved up Friday night and it was again for the November 5th, 2019 drawing. Maybe it was the thrill of having a high jackpot? No special plays were needed to send the prize even higher to $145 million.

Will Mega Millions’ momentum carry into Friday night with a {2-2-1-1} Pattern encore?

Lotto Texas and Powerball Fall Back

After gorging yourself on Halloween candy and jumping onto a holiday sale, what better way to sleep it off than with setting the clock back one hour? If you’re reading this blog from either the U.S. or Canada, you most likely set your clock back one hour this weekend, making the already early sunsets come even earlier.

Lotto Texas and Powerball also “fell back” November 2nd, 2019. Neither lottery had any big plays in their arsenals. Perhaps this was the opening one Powerball player needed as he (or she) became the sole winner of $150 million! Naturally, the jackpot reset to $40 million. Lotto Texas chugged along, building itself up to $7.75 million.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Like Lotto Texas, Powerball was still filled up from the candy binge. There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations.

Will November be filled with Pattern streaks and crazy-high jackpots, or will the lotteries contain their madness until we get closer to Christmas?

Mega Millions’ Playback Hump

“Close, but no cigar.”

“Almost doesn’t count – except in horseshoes and hand grenades.”

Both of these sayings could describe Mega Millions’ relationship with the playback lately. Two of the three would share the same date but there was that one straggler. Nothing changed that in the November 1st, 2019 drawing. The month kicked off with no grand prize winners, which pushed the jackpot upward to $127 million.
