The Tale of the Haunted Lotteries

The calendar says Halloween is over, but on November 4, 2020, Halloween stuck around for Lotto Texas and Powerball! Both lotteries saw another visitation from their Saturday night Patterns and rather than fight the spirits, they made peace. Their reward was a boost in their jackpots, rising to $7.5 million and $149 million, respectively.

Of the 531 Powerball drawings, the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has played in 27.9% of them.

The [1-2-2-1] General Order, now with 46 appearances, has played in 31.1% of the 148 drawings where {2-2-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Once all 531 drawings have been taken into consideration, this General Order has played 8.66% of the time.

Now with eight appearances, the 0 1 2 2 0 1 Specific Order has played in 17.4% of the 46 drawings where the General Order was [1-2-2-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 5.41% of the 148 drawings where {2-2-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 1.51% of all 531 drawings.

The ghost of Halloween wasn’t as powerful in Powerball. Although the Pattern made an encore, the General Order and Specific Order did not. However, these two were joined at the hip, for the [1-2-2-1] Pattern and the 0 1 2 2 0 1 Specific Order were last seen October 3, 2020.

Three-Number Combinations  

Repeating Three-Number Combinations were absent Wednesday night.

Will the {3-2-1} and {2-2-1-1} Pattern stick around for Saturday night, or will they move on to the next world (at least until they play again)?
