Lotto Texas and Powerball Get Out and Go

It’s that time of year again! Summer is right around the corner, and with all that’s happened these past few months, everyone is itching to get back to some sense of “normalcy”. The easing of stay-at-home orders is scratching that itch, and what went down May 16, 2020 showed that humans weren’t the only ones who can’t bear to be cooped up for long!

Lotto Texas and Powerball put on their masks and went out and about. All that pent-up energy led to one lottery coming this close to seeing a playback, while another saw a Pattern encore and a similar spread. There were no grand prize winners produced in this madness, and the jackpots climbed once again. Lotto Texas’s jackpot rose to $16.25 million while Powerball’s jumped to $95 million.

There have now been 1760 Lotto Texas drawings, and this Pattern has now played 53% of the time.

Now with 154 appearances, the 2 3 1 Specific Order has played in 16.5% of the 932 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern. Once all 1760 drawings have been taken into consideration, this Specific Order has played 8.75% of the time. We last saw the 2 3 1 Specific Order in the April 8, 2020 drawing.

Similar Spread

Saturday’s numbers had the spread of 15:14:02:01:03. This spread is similar to the one that was seen almost seven years ago in the June 8, 2013 drawing. That night, the winning numbers were 14, 28, 29, 44, 46 and 49. The spread was 14:01:15:02:03.

It’s best to remember that when dealing with similar spreads that despite the differences between played numbers being the same, the order in which the numbers played on those nights was different.

Four-Number Combination(s)

Lotto Texas had enough room for three repeating Four-Number Combinations:

  • 2, 17, 33, 37 (Debuted June 5, 2002)
  • 31, 33, 34, 37 (Debuted October 6, 2010)
  • 2, 31, 33, 34 (Debuted November 6, 2002)
