The Ghost of October 21st

What’s Christmas without at least one reference to A Christmas Carol? Whether you’ve seen the various adaptations or read it, you know about the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future. Believe it or not, this perennial Christmas classic is tied to today’s post.

Lotteries are constantly visited by the past; that’s part of their nature, and what makes Lottery Trend possible. What made December 5, 2020 interesting was the prominence of the number 21. Both Lotto Texas and Powerball were visited (haunted?) by the ghost of October 21. The visitation generated a boost to both their jackpots! Lotto Texas rose to $5.5 million and Powerball’s prize climbed to $262 million.

Similar Spread

Even though a playback didn’t happen, there was indeed a similar spread!

Saturday’s night spread was 01:02:42:05. A spread that was similar to this was spotted July 11, 2020. That night, the winning numbers were 14, 19, 61, 62, 64, and PB4. The Spread was 05:42:01:02. Note how that even though the differences between the numbers played were the same, their orders were different.

Three-Number Combinations  

No repeating Three-Number Combinations for Powerball this time.

Will next week be one where Pattern streaks and similar spreads dominate, or will the lotteries have other plans?
